[ - ] NYC private school teacher here. I teach at what UBers dub a "tt" upper school, and I have some advice, unsolicited but well meaning. In high school, your child is old enough to advocate for him or herself, and your helicoptering does him or her a disservice in many ways. On one level, it makes us associate the student with the annoying parent. Secondly, it makes us feel sorry for the child for being so overpowered by you. If you are trying to pressure a teacher about grades because of YOUR narcissism about college, that pressure will backfire--this, I promise. We have the student's interests at heart--not yours. And maybe we think the better grade you are pushing for will hurt him/her in the end. Many of us are far more educated than the parents we deal with, most of whom are lovely, but the bad ones are the worst and are so obtuse that they have no idea how we see them or how easily we see through them. Just because you pay big tuition does not earn you the right to try to manipulate teachers. Once again, doing so just hurts your child. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You are completely wrong and you are looking for justifications to be a useless and neglectful parent. If you don't want to raise children, don't do it. There is nothing wrong with being childless/childfree. But don't bring a kid into this world, do a shitty job of raising him/her and then wash your hands off the mess you created by claiming that the kid is "difficult" and doomed to mental illness. Don't ever raise a child. You will be a horrible mother. [ Reply | More ]

I thought my dd was difficult at two but I would not say she's been difficult in general. What I have observed is that some of the attributes that were there in toddlerhood (and even before) are still there now: She is determined, self sufficient, creative/imaginative and highly motivated. These traits can have pros and cons, but I find them easier to deal with than things like lack of motivation or a kid that had no passion or zest. She's 12 so this could change in the next five years... [ Reply | More ]

Yes, she was never normal. She was always extremely anxious and emotional. I could tell from birth she would be like this. Cried non stop for the first year of life. Threw horrible tantrums long after her peers had stopped. The school alerted me that something was off. Never handled stress well. Had drug problems in her teens. She is very successful now but is on medication and sees a therapist. [ Reply | More ]

Please. She's a single parent with a stressful career. Depression and anxiety are normal emotions for people like her. She doesn't need a psychologist; she needs to choose what's most important and change the rest. [ Reply | More ]

She's not borderline if the 9mos was "hellish". I drink way too much and that was easy for me. [ Reply | More ]

Stop trying to snap out of it. You're only making things worse when you expect that you can just snap out of things. Getting better takes time. [ Reply | More ]

I had a stressful career, was a single mom to three and was also a functional alcoholic. I never "had time" for therapy. Until that pesky "functional" part went away and I was full-blown alcoholic who lost absolutely everything. I had plenty of time for therapy then, because I had lost my job. Get help now. Trust me.

I watched a little of Luther and didn't like it though Idris Elba (also known as Stringer Bell, to those of us in the know) is a hunk. Still, I've heard that Luther gets better. As for Orphan Black, my DH got tired of it and the plot kinda thinned out, but it was very compelling in the beginning. Just the opinions of a person who's hard to please. I liked Fargo. Also thought it got sloppy at the very end, but Martin Freeman was terrific. [ Reply | More ]

Orphan Black is about a young woman who discovers she is one of a batch of clones, each raised separately and living totally different lives. The same actress plays several of her "clone sisters" as they work towards figuring out the secrets of the conspiracy around them. It's great to see the actress doing a variety of characters in any given episode. If you liked Alias, you will probably like this. [ Reply | More ]

The first scene of Orphan Black - a woman on the run sees a well dressed woman in a business suit, take off her shoes, put down her briefcase and throw herself in front of an oncoming train. Just before she jumps the two woman lock eyes and they look identical. The woman on the run grabs the dead woman's stuff.....that's the start of the show [ Reply | More ]

OP--you really think the manufacturer's instructions are the best guide for how to use consumer products? My box of Q-tips says I should never use them to clean my ears! I'd rather get real-world advice. Plus, I'm on the paranoid side, so I'd never trust some booklet that tells me it's fine to leave an electrical appliance plugged in if others have had not-so-great experiences with it.
