    That’s what her body language is saying. Boopsie is distracted by her memories and forgetting that her daughter only wants a quick suggestion of how to start——if anything. When asking for help, it’s important not to leave the driver’s seat at the computer.

    Well said! If you don’t have kids, you still need public education because you have friends, neighbors and countrymen who need to receive it when they’re children if they’re to help you maintain civility, science, art and all those other elements of civilization when they grow up and replace you as decision makers.

    If you demand lively presentation from the speaker and easy reading from the book, you’ll end up with pseudo science and sappy literature. Charisma adds a glow to a lecture but it’s not a quality everyone can achieve; there will be dull speakers and difficult books. Learning doesn’t end with graduation; we continue to learn from speakers and writers, and that process will be more successful if we have learned how to listen and read for content and use critical thinking in integrating new information into our store of knowledge. The work habits the student develops in school will be as helpful as the knowledge imparted.

    Conservatives think the government is there to serve business; liberals think the government is there to serve the people. Both truly believe themselves patriots protecting the nation.

    When the doctor is running late, I know that if I’m due for some bad news, the doctor will take the time to talk me through it.

    The old don’t like new ideas because they’re unproven by the test of time; the young don’t like the present ideas because they’ve been tested and found wanting. It’s the old saying: If the young knew, if the old could", which is wittier in French.

    I would argue that the responsibioity for choosing a post-hight school continuation of education needs to be a joint activity of parent and student.
    Find out what the policy is of the state university: is it one of accepting transfers from 2 year community colleges and coordinating courses?
    Then ask yourselves what the student needs: if he/she is self-motivtated and academically gifted, entering university as a freshman may be the best choice but if the student is on some level young for his/her age, enrollment in a linked community college for the first 2 years may give him’her more direct interatction with the instructors, who are more adapted to teaching than the Teaching Assistant at the university andd at attending to the individual student. If he/she is academically gifted and socially adept, he/she may gain more from the community ethic and academic demands of a university than from the less academic environment of a community college.
    There is no single good advice for the student on graduating from high school. For some, a year out of the higher-education track altogether may provide time for physical-intellectual maturation and be preferable to continuation into community college, trade school or university .
    Higher education in America is still more adaptable to the new graduate than in other parts of the world. The carpenter today may be the physicist of tomorrow and the Phi Beta Kappa, the farmer by personal choice. Enjoy the freedom.
    Know yourself or know your child and do your research. Call upon the high school teachers, who know your child, and university counselors, who know the demands of the college or university.
    One size doesn’t fit all. What’s the best for that young person?

    One 5 year old told her mother “I can be good at home or I can be good at preschool but I can’t be good all the time.” Some children are comfortable with their parents, who are accustomed to their little ways, but need to impress and win sympathy from those they don’t know so well.
