You might enjoy this (and other) strips more if you take each of them on their own merit. Red & Rover are NOT Calvin & Hobbes, for example, so those comparisons are of little to no value. And there are actually several strips that focus on teens in a positive way. “Zits” is one great example.
LOL – I promise, @scherzo – I’m not laughing AT you, I’m laughing WITH you on this one. It occurs to me that there probably isn’t an 8-year-old anywhere in America who has heard the phrase “I’ll eat my hat.”
Props to @cabalonrye for the courage to ask an honest and reasonable question, and to @DM2860 for providing a courteous response.
Now off I go to ponder what it means that a simple, civil interaction seems worthy of affirmation.
A good friend of mine is the director of a day treatment program so I have an idea of your husband’s burden. Sounds like he (and you) found the perfect solution. Best wishes and blessings to both of you.
Omigoodness, what a beautiful and brilliant insight. I’ll have to start paying attention to your theory regarding the children in my life. Fly high, Chip Davis … and happy landings!
Excellent advice! I’ll try it!
I, too, have dreamed of flying (literally as well as figuratively). In one recurring dream, I’ve realized that humans actually are capable of flight. You simply levitate off the ground, lean forward, and go!
The only superpower I’ve ever wanted is the ability to FLY.
Same here, my friend. Same. I never want to be that crabby Boomer who throws a blanket indictment over the next generation. We, too, learned through experience, and that’s a gift only time can bestow.
To any “Boomer” who complains about what “kids” don’t know, I would say only: Did you teach them??
Sounds like you may have finally been paid what you were worth all along. I had a different experience. As I am the only person in my former organization that did that specific job, they actually hired my replacement early to give me time to train her. Very bright and capable young lady; all the potential in the world but lacked experience, which of course only time can provide. She lasted less than 60 days before turning in her notice. I don’t know who is going to train the next person but I’m anticipating a call ………
