Sounds like a dick.

Not really. She is a sweet kid and he was teaching her to be respectful and patient, which are good things to learn.

I am all for that . . . but it's not normal for a polite child to have to raise their hands outside of the classroom to speak, is it?

Raising her hand is enough IMO if that if how you teach your children. Reprimanding her in front of others at dinner for not waiting to raise her hand is silly.

You all must be raising wolves..

Foo: No - our kids were not taught to raise their hand at home. But they were taught to wait until adults (or anyone) finished speaking and to not interrupt, despite the bad example set by their father.

How old is the kid? If 3, this is both impressive and commendable. If 13 . . .

Somewhere between eight and 11. Fluent in French, Italian, Russian and English. For all his strictness, he doesn't seem to mind her making fun of his Italian (as long as she raises her hand first).

Parenting priorities... as if we didn't have enough topics to all disagree on  ;)

My mother put a good foot in my behind when I needed it when I was younger and look at me, the most well-adjusted 30 year old in America.

I wondered why I've been sleeping so well the past few night. Answer: the city fixed that series of 6" potholes that was near my window. Garbage and delivery truck drivers would just say "eh, fuck it" and plow right over them making a terrible series of bangs.

thank god.

^ could've saved yourself a lot of sleep had you drawn dicks around the potholes

post #9885 of 11479
you know I did think of doing that. Thing is, I'm right at the border of the graffiti district, so not sure how much of an impact it would have had.

also, I'm too much of a pussy to vandalize.
