    Mommies can fly planes. Daddies can cook dinner., Sometimes daddy stays home to take care of kids, sometimes the mommy does,.

    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.

    The theory behind letting the baby cry goes back to the extreme emphasis earlier on conditioning the baby by feeding only on a fixed schedule, putting him to bed to sleep on a fixed schedule etc. to avoid spoiling the child. Dr. Spock was the Geat Liberator who told mothers to believe in their own instincts and teach the child that his needs would be met; when that trust is established, she can begin the slower process of adjusting her schedule to his and his to hers. (Pronouns here are assigned to keep things simple;each parent cares for each child independent of gender.)

    Well, Herdleader. not “just like the Republicans”, who wanted the Obama care to fail miserably and terminally; he took the resonsibility for the many glitches and is trying to mend the act as fast as possible, and to make it cover as many as possible. There is a difference between an act with bugs to be eliiminated and an act of sabotage.

    If this is your working philosophy before and during a marriage, then it will probably not be much of a marriage.

    Actually, one says “the media are” not “the media is” and factually, you would do better to read tthe news day bv day to know that the Republicans want to undo the law and are willing to bring the country to a halt to accomlish that.
