    Here’s a thought. Tell me if it’s good. Val & Holly call Kaytlyn or go to her house together, discuss it all and then apology.

    nopes – it is not a UN convention… it is about personal responsibility.

    Do kids know how to SPEAK in person or on the phone anymore?

    Probably not! Do they even know how to sign their names anymore?

    This generation is a lazy bunch.

    I was surprised the other day at a fast food restaurant, when I observed two teenagers who WEREN’T using their cell phones the whole time! Instead, they were talking ABOUT their cell phones the whole time… (But at least they were actually talking, face-to-face!!)

    Not in Indiana. They are not teaching ‘Cursive’ writing anymore. They say it isn’t needed.

    the kids here do still have to write on tests and such but for the most part they do the work on a computer and print it out. In Elementary school they write but they stoped teaching Penmanship some time ago and that is why they just let them do the work on a computer, at least the teacher can read it.

    I liked the group I saw the other day, as soon as they sat down all 5 of them put their cells in the middle of the table after turning them off. They couldn’t have been out of high school, no drama just 5 girls enjoying chatting. Hope in the next generation was a bit restored.

    My son started cursive last year, in 2nd grade. In 3rd grade, all his work had to be in cursive starting about halfway through the year.

    I have to admit, my cursive writing is HORRIBLE! Between working on the computer and dashing off quick memos to co-workers, my penmanship has plummeted. Part of it could be my car accidents, but even my calligraphy has shown a downhill slide, and I was the Queen of Gothic Batarde and Uncial for wedding invitations and signage. My cursive looks like something being written during a 7.5 Richter earthquake.

    I think Holly already did enough by calling the girl to apologize. Going to her house wouldn’t do any good at this point. Hopefully the girl will forgive her later on but if not forcing herself on her to apologize in person won’t help.

    Holly should buy the girl a present too.

    My Grandson spent a little time on cursive. Ten minutes a day, one letter a day. I doubt he will remember it all. I guess if he can sign his name that will will be good. Really, how often do we need it anymore?

    A personal touch carries far more weight than a mere phone call. Just shows how far people have moved away from person-to-person communication.
