We need to put pressure on Governors Pat Quinn in Illinois and Nathan Deal in Georgia, to follow suit for the O'Hare and Hartsfield airports. Unfortunately, Washington Dulles is under federal control, so we'll never get a common sense solution there until the politics become unbearable for Obama. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have only boys but can tell you the boys who caused the most trouble in school had fathers who got really physical with them in terms of keeping them in line - the dads who used the lines "act like a man." The nicest boys had "geek" parents whom I guessed were once picked on themselves at school - their dads were engineers, or they were quiet short men, or hard workers who flew under the radar. The boys who did all the whining and had personality issues had moms who were completely overbearing and over-involved with them, basically to the point of examining the color and quality of their poo, and dads who were not a match for their wives' strong personalities. (Either that or dads who were total neurotic PITAs and the moms put up with them for whatever reason) [ Reply | More ]

+1 I have seen several of my sons' friends completely implode after bad breakups with girls. Like they had to go inpatient for several days at the local hospital because they flipped out so completely. Boys vs. boys they tend to cut each other out of the picture (like "he's being a total dick; I don't need that") for periods of time, and then for whatever reason they pick back up again. But I've never seen them do the weird talk-behind-the-back "I'm going to spread a rumor" thing or other underhanded game playing that, as a former girl, I remember me and my friends doing.

PP: Yes, I guess that's basically what I mean. But the reason he's not complaining is that he's happy. He's doing well in his classes, and has two major ECs that he devotes a lot of time to. Yes, he is usually up until 12 or so, but he's thriving in this environment. Last year he was basically focused on academics (as we told him to be) and he struggled, not pulling it together in terms of grades until the fifth marking period. He bought a lot of books on how to study and followed the advice. [ Reply | More ]

Tell her that sometimes you have to just hold onto your values while the world goes mad. But it shouldn't reflect on you, even if it makes you feel bad/sad. Popular is just that … trendy … and it could have to do with working at it, how you look (which is very subjective and changes all the time), money, being the loudest talker in the room and drowning everyone else out, etc. Things that don't matter. It's a good perspective to give a child: that the way things are is oftentimes not what's right or good or what you ultimately want. [ Reply | More ]
