i hate when people blatantly wait for my space/ stake out my space as i'm starting to load my car. sometimes it takes a few minutes to load my stuff, return the cart, get in the car, start my GPS or find the podcast i want to listen to or call my husband to make sure we don't need anything else... or, if i have my kids with me, to strap them in and make sure they each have a book. then they have the audacity to get annoyed when i'm not out of the spot in 0.8 seconds. just because i am physically near my car doesn't mean i'm ready to leave immediately!

[ - ] How did you choose your preschool? Were ex-missions a factor? Or warmth of community? Proximity? DC had fantastic play dates and we applied broadly, so trying to prepare in case we luck out with multiple accepts later this month. Not connected or a big donor family, and no sibs, so worried the "good" preschools will screw us over come K application time. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Scene at swim class this morning: two loud mouth women (grandmothers to one of the girls in swim class) with Father of the girl pointing and criticizing some of the kids in the class. I think I even heard one say, "that one must be retarded or special needs or something!". They only stopped because they assumed one of the kids they talked about was mine (he was not). I regret not saying anything! I'm not good with confrontation but this was just plain wrong. Is it okay to same something next time or just ignore? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't have special needs kids, but I agree with the above poster. Actually I would have recorded what they did with my iPhone and then sent an email to management with the recording saying that these people should be asked to leave the swim class or at the very least management should "gave a talk" with them about appropriate behavior for adults [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Honest question. Does anybody have a kid who appeared really bright but did not qualify for Hunter or G&T / did not do well on these? If so, why do you think that is? Were they not as bright as you though, was it a matter of preparation, or did kid turn out to have learning or behavioral problems? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

my kid scored an 89 on g&t. we could have prepped her better--we did do a few sample pages in a workbook just to get familiar with the format. she's in a gen ed class now and is doing very well. she is clearly very bright, but i think "gifted" is a step beyond. who knows. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, my dd took hunter and received a 112 which was shocking as all of her friends scored in the 140s. She then took G&T and scored a 99. I did bright kids workbooks with her at home. She is now the top student in her citywide G&T class, 2 years ago in her reading/writing according to her teachers. I am not sure if she is gifted, but I do know that her focus and ability to learn and retain knowledge is highly above the average. She is interested in everything and is able to sort information really well and makes amazing connections between things she has learned and new things. Don't let hunter or G&T define who your kid is. [ Reply | More ]

Also to answer your 2nd part of the question, I think that in regards to hunter the actual tester makes a difference. These kids are not all given the same questions, etc. For example I remember when my dd took it she told me that the tester did not ask her any questions but she just did puzzles. Friends kids said that a lot of questions were asked. [ Reply | More ]
