Exactly.

That's the thing, none of our fixed costs are on there so the amount varies a lot. Some months it's zero, other months it's a few thousand.

The curriculum is prescribed by the diocese and is inherently boring. However, the right teacher can make it fun. This is true for virtually any subject matter. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm Asian, and growing up, I would be so shocked at how disrespectfully my white friends would talk to their parents. My parents were very loving and never harsh and so I'm not sure how they instilled within my siblings and I to never speak in a disrespectful way to them. Any Asians here have any idea? I need to develop this within my own children because I'm starting to sense the sass emerging. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Please don't lump all white children together. My parents would never tolerate a speaking to them in a disrespectful fashion. They were very strict like that. For what it's worth my ancestry is Irish but we've been in New York for many many generations. [ Reply | More ]

Just be stern. Don't allow them to talk back. Explain that kind of behavior is disrespectful. Have manners at the dining table and be courteous to everyone, not just saying thank you but mean it. [ Reply | More ]

I'm Asian too. My parents were pretty strict about the respect part, like we would get a scolding for any sass. We still tested the limits though, so not sure how your parents did it. :) [ Reply | More ]

I'm black and I can remember feeling the same way as a kid when I observed white families in the supermarket or around the city. I came from a loving home and would never think to speak to my parents with such disrespect. My kids attend school in a mostly white environment and I'm constantly reminding them to mind their manners. [ Reply | More ]

i think some of it is when you are raised to think your opinion matters, esp in your household. we teach dc's to challenge that with which they disagree, and that ends up including parents. [ Reply | More ]

White children are constantly disrespecting their parents. My friends and I laugh about this constantly. The parents say "stop it Johnny" instead of disciplining them. I see it all the time in stores and at the school. I'm Asian and my parents raised me to respect them and not to shame the family from a very early age. Shame is a huge in our culture. I see the same in Nigerian culture as well. Try to make sure you keep your children associating with other Asian children or families that share the same value system regardless of their race.
