It is really early in the year to be struggling. Is there an honors math that isn't algebra in 8th? I took honors math in 8th instead of algebra because I wasn't ready for algebra in 8th. Some kids just aren't ready. I aced it in 9th grade. - STEM mom [ Reply | More ]

But algebra in 8th grade is a higher level math. There is a big trend right now to not even let kids take algebra in middle school and just have them do it in 9th because the end outcomes are very bad for kids who aren't ready for it in 8th. How big is your school? [ Reply | More ]

Straight men want to have sex with women. They're pretty much always up for it (pun intended) and they don't care about things like fat rolls or pubic hair. They just like to see naked boobs, saggy ones, pointy ones, doesn't matter. They also don't care whether you did the dishes or argued with them over how to punish dcs or yelled at their mom. Unless you slept with their best friend, they can pretty much forget about it and put it aside at the sight of your hairy, flabby, naked boobs, which turns them on. [ Reply | More ]

We're a public school family, and I know it's different, but I think ideal would be an April or May birthday. The child would be neither oldest nor youngest in class. Weather is likely good enough for an outdoor birthday party. Summer birthdays make it hard to gather friends for a party. September or October birthdays can make it hard to choose guests for birthday parties, because your child might not yet know who his or her real friends are. [ Reply | More ]

I get this and get trying to plan for it a little though it's hard. Came to the conclusion that the only month that worked for public and private both was Jan-Feb. But after a long haul, ended up with an August baby. We'll figure out what we need to when it comes up in a few years.... [ Reply | More ]

Don't worry too much about it. I've got an August one, and she's doing wonderfully, no issues. [ Reply | More ]

My kid is a December kid in public. 12/30. Honestly, if he had been born twodays later it would have been bad for him. He is tall, bright, articulate, and a real brat when he is bored. [ Reply | More ]

My dh and I are HYP so we were horrified by his grades and super worried. But he got into 3 or 4 good schools, including his top choice. He has struggles with learning differences so we had long ago realized that he wasn't going to be following in our path. He's making his own path and we couldn't be prouder. [ Reply | More ]
