That was my reaction as well.


Back to the story of my little thief...seems that he is recognizing the seriousness of the issues and is feeling some major regret. It remains to be seen but I am hopeful that this will be a good lesson for his future.

Man, sorry to hear you had to go through that. I was just thinking that I flirted with a life of crime in my youth as well around the same age, but for me it was paperback mystery novels (Agatha Christie, et al). But yeah, loss of trust and reputation (and 'face' I guess) is a big lesson I learned from my folks and stuck with me, and it sounds like yours is headed in the right direction.

BTW: re: Circus Arts - I briefly considered attending the Clown College instead of the traditional undergrad education. Sometimes I think I might have made a good clown professor instead of this Working 8-5 and Being Responsible nonsense.

I read recently that graduates of clown school have 100% placement, so you could do worse.


circus arts - I don't know how common it is, but in my town their is a circus arts school, for adults and kids. basically, you learn to do trapeze and tight rope and other stuff like that. several of my friends kids, and my kids friends, do it. since the little twin has great upper body strength/body weight ratio, and she likes climbing, we thought it would be a good choice for her, and she is really interested. its very athletic.

I think I went to a clown college, it was just disguising itself as a business school.

Reviving this thread to get some opinions on this. I see more and more young kids with their eyes glued to smartphones/tablets. I definitely don't want that for ours in the future. It seems the best approach is to limit early exposure, but what about balancing this with their friends/other kids with their own smartphones and social lives based around Instagram/Twitter etc.?

I'm only a Millenial special floral shit myself, but may i suggest smashing their smartphones and and other contraptions and telling them to talk to their friends in the fucking flesh?
