[ - ] Parents of kids in "elite" citywide G&Ts or Hunter Elementary - At what age do the kids learn that their schools are different than the regular schools that everyone else attends? Do they figure this out on their own? Do you explain it to them? What do you say? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The children are told from birth onward that they are gifted. Whether there is any truth to this is moot-- prepping takes place until an adequately "gifted" score is achieved. After admission, tutors help to keep the fantasy going. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Runner moms: help! After not running at all since Thanksgiving, I went out for a 7 mile on Saturday, took it easy, but there were a lot of hills...yesterday did a lot of in-town walking, feeling a little bit stiff. Today my shins are in so much pain that I am limping around the office. What can I do? Will ice help even though it's now two days later? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am not a runner, but my after was. After pushing himself during shin splints, he became badly injured. So just a note to please take it easy until you're fully recovered. Good luck OP. [ Reply | More ]

I take my Adderall BEFORE I leave the house. If I wait until I get to the office, I often start doing something while I wait for it to kick in, and by the time it kicks in, it's hard for me to get back on track. I break my To Do list down into micro-tasks so it's less overwhelming to jump in to. Ex- Instead of "Clean bathroom", I'll have "Scrub toilet, scrub shower, mop floor, wipe down vanity". Once I get started, it's easy to continue. I also set timers to myself and say "Ok, just do an hours worth of work, and then you can take a break". Once I get started, I rarely need to take that break. [ Reply | More ]
