[ - ] Curious to get opinions on commuting an hour from BK to go to Q300 for K. The alternative is school-based "gifted" class at a large traditional zoned school that is adequate but didn't wow us. We were very impressed with the principal at Q300 and the inquiry-based model and the parents we spoke to love it, but we're apprehensive about the commute. Clearly people do it for established citywides like Nest and Anderson but Q300 is still a very early work in progress. On the other hand at Q300 there's no mandatory homework until 3rd grade which makes the time spent commuting seem more manageable. Thoughts? 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Maybe go for it for now, as you have just one dc. If it's too much for him or for you and your wife, you could always move or switch schools. It sounds like your alternative isn't so bad, and you could always enrich the math with an after school program or at home. [ Reply | More ]

Q300 parent here. A number of K parents have hour-long commutes and seem to be managing and feel it's worthwhile. A few have moved. If you're in Williamsburg, there could be car pools or bus service.

Thanks for the advice! We are actually farther out in BK in Ditmas Park. We'd likely take the Q which at least is a straight shot. Have you felt the curriculum is academically rigorous enough? I appreciate the school is not selling itself on acceleration like some of the other citywides but I do want our son to feel challenged (esp. in math where he is already pretty advanced).

There's at least one family with a similar commute. It does sound long, I admit. The principal is very accessible, have you tried asking him? If what you want is acceleration, you might feel frustrated about making that long commute if you feel your child is not being pushed enough. I just don't know exactly how the school handles kids who are way above grade level. But you might try asking the principal or the social worker. [ Reply | More ]

We're less concerned about whether the other kids have 99's then whether the school is really providing a thoughtful and engaging learning environment. Also think it makes a big difference that there are two teachers a class plus language instruction. Just curious, at what age do you think the commute becomes manageable? We are trying to take the long view so maybe we suck it up for a couple of years but the commute gets easier as the kids get older and then we have a good school for 9 years (hopefully x2). But maybe we are getting ahead of ourselves! [ Reply | More ]

Don't use her crrib or the bedroom. A naughty stool or time out chair in a neutral place say the kitchen or hallway is best. There could be a little bit of psychology in the slapping at that age but half of it is the reaction you give. Keep up with the no, this hurts but try your best to keep your voice firm but not angry and your reaction as calm as possible, considering she did just slap you. [ Reply | More ]

Then it sounds like you did it right except for turning bedtime into punishment. I would also grab her hitting arm very tightly, enough to make it uncomfortable, without hurting her, while scolding her. Next - ignore her for a while, show (and first tell) her you want nothing to do with her when she hits. Depriving a kid of attention gets them pretty hard. Compliment her for good touches, e.g. gentle touches or hugs. Kids seek your confirmation. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think the issue in the Duggars' case was the shared bedroom. The real problem was those parents raising their kids in a toxic sexual bubble, so they never had any opportunity to experiment in a normal, age-appropriate way either by themselves or with another unrelated kid of the same age. Can you imagine how the parents must have reacted if they ever found out he was masturbating off in the bathroom? Can you imagine never, ever being alone with an opposite-sex child around your own age who wasn't your sibling? And what on earth were they teaching their kids about sex in general, aside from the idea that you're a dirty sinner if you do it outside of marriage? Sounds like a sure-fire way to raise a deviant, tbh. The communal bedroom is moot. [ Reply | More ]

If she has heavy flow, teach her how to use a tampon with plastic applicator, and a pad just in case. I remember not being able to get to the bathroom between classes and having to wait until lunch to change and had too many embarrassing moments. [ Reply | More ]

How old? I was 17 when I started my period and used tampons from the get-go, but for my friends who started at 12, they used pads. I was just freakishly old. [ Reply | More ]

Doesn't sound fake to me. If she wants to use tampons, it's fine. My dd started using tampons with her first period because she hated the feel of pads so much. We went to the store and bought a few different brands and types so she could figure out what worked best for her. In the end we found that Tampax Pearl has a light absorbancy tampon in their "active" line that is very, very slim, and she also thought their applicator was the most comfortable and easiest to use. Get your dd a hand mirror and let her know it's fine if she wastes the entire box getting the hang of things -- it can take several tries over the course of a few days. [ Reply | More ]

Baltimore, Houston, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Wilmington, St. Louis, San Francisco, and other Dem-run cities have seen sharp spikes in their murder rates in 2015 compared to 2014.

Liberals are NOT okay with this. They want to stop it by copying the gun laws that Canada has.

Gun laws wouldn't be relevant here, since we're talking about changes in cities since last year, while the same gun laws would have been in place. If cities could achieve 2014 murder rates with their current gun laws, there's no excuse for allowing things to get worse in 2015. [ Reply | More ]
