    Ellie you should get paid for this. However it’s good practice when April comes along. Motherhood is not for your Ellie.

    She’s raises three kids, more or less by herself, to be successful, decent people. Yeah, motherhood is totally not for her…

    And it’s spelled “Elly” not “Ellie”…

    There is a long-running theme in the comic strip by Elly that the children do things intentionally in order to upset her
    -
    For the child’s viewpoint on this, you may want to take a look at some of the recent Doonesbury strips featuring twins and their working mother….

    My aunt used to use sign language with her small children. To the point that when she would say goodnight, she wood sign goodnight, and then say she was turning the light off and sign it. My mom likes to tell the story of when one night, when my aunt was putting her child to bed, he started crying. When she asked what was wrong, the child gave her the sign for the light, and my aunt was able to determine that the child wanted the light left on. Kids will tell you what they want, but only if they know how!

    I can see why some parents just can’t cope — especially if they’re on their own

    Tragically the initiating point for many cases of physical abuse of very young kids

    Kids have the right to be unhappy just like you and me. We can talk about how we feel but kids don’t have to vocabulary nor the cognitive ability to express themselves so they sometimes cry.

    What’s the difference? Both spellings are pronounced exactly the same way. Have you looked at the atrocious spelling errors that the comics commenters make in these columns??? They confuse their, there, they"re; two, too, & to; they use the possessive case " ’s " to create the plural of a word, & a myriad other errors, which PROVES THAT THE SCHOOLS ARE NOT ACTUALLY TEACHING ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want more proof that nothing happens in these schools but sports you can simply ask the students. My friend graduated not knowing how to read.
