The reasoning against doing both of those things is the sake of a child's self-esteem according to the [...]

I am not a fan of the news in general but last night a story caught my ear.  A mother in Tampa, Rhonda Holder, was fed up with her son's failing grades and FCAT scores so she did something about it.  What she did was put her son on the street corner for 8 hours with a sign.  The sign reads:  "I did four questions on my FCAT and said I wasn't [...]

Good Morning, Bad Morning

So this morning I wake to find all the kids sleeping. Ordinarily the peace and quiet would be welcome however it was Monday morning. There should have been 1 kid off to school and the other 3 getting ready for school. The oldest, whose bus comes at 6:05am, was still sleeping. When I asked why he was still asleep; I was told he stayed up late [...]
