    I teach social studies, not math, but the math teachers that I work with all have stories about how parents believe their kids are gifted. As it turns out, they are good calculators, but when it comes time to put some thought into their work, they all get their asses kicked. The same thing with language arts. The whole "my kid is bored so he/she must be gifted" is bullshit. I have a kid who's mother came in this year to push for her kid to go into the "profoundly gifted" program because he was in a Montessori school in another state last year. This kid sits in our classes and does the absolute minimum to get by. He contributes nothing to class discussions. We did a great stock market activity last week. The kids were excited about it. They had fun and learned something. However, this kid would sell his product as quickly as possible so he could get back to his seat and read his book. He isn't bored. He isn't gifted. He's pissed off because he had to move.


    As my retired colleague used to say, "faster isn't better". You get out of something what you put into it. Let your kids be kids!

    WTF does this have to do with Megan?!?!?!?

    1) it was the preschooll, not me that insisted se jump over preK2 ad straight into K
    2) It was the preschool, not me, that used the word bored
    3) Megan was done quite well comprehending the K cirriculum

    From where I am sitting, Megan has done everything she was asked, so way should she repeat kindergarten?

    BTW, I am not being pyscho Dad insisting my mediocre kid be considered class genius. I see her read I see her write I see her add aned subtract. She can handle the 1s grade cirulum. After al, she does graduate kindergarten on 5/29

    So I guess this entire board would have made Ken Grifey R say in the minors until he was 22 just because we don't want to think about being too good too young

    What is really sck, the deciding factor might be DO I WANT HER TO BE A 12 TR OLD HS FRESHMAN

    Because of the redshiters, 1/2 he rclass would be 14 while she is 12. While I am sure she can make the grade, you have that whole puberty thing

    Freqkin sickening that I have to dumb my kid down just to make sure she isn't the last girl to get hair on her twat

    But isn't tht freakin America today. The brain takes a back sit to the penis and vagina

    who the hell is dumbing her down. Doesn't she have parents? Is school the only place she can learn anything.
    Hear about things called books? I mentioned language ( all of my Greek lawyer friends went to Greek school on Saturdays- knew polish kids who went to Polish school)
    why do you have your child's education depend entirely on the school?
    there are museums and zoos and forest preserves and different attractions all over the place

    Seriously Frank, the one thing that makes me not want to rush her is that I know she will be not only the youngest, but she has the petitite gene so she will probably always be one of the smallest as well.  Not an issue now, but it could be in high school.  I can just picture start of freshman year when she would be 12 and some kids will be 14 thanks to red shirting.

    But still, if she is gifted academically, how do we get the most out of her?  do public schools still double promote?  Personally, it seems like a waste if we let her repeat kindergarten.  If she has the brain to be on the academic fast track, then get her on it.  Better to try and fail, then to never try at all.

    PS, Stanley is average height and better than average athletically as well as better than most musically and artistically.  Lazy little bugger doesn't realize how could he could be

    Sounds like a pretty typical kid for that age.  Mine are all lazy as hell.  I make them run laps out back and hold them to high grade standards or they get nothing.  No computer time.  No phones.  No allowance. Nothing.  Pisses them off to no end, but maybe they'll thank me later.  Or maybe they'll bitch about me to their therapists.



    Hey Rob, I believe there is a kiddie triathlon in St Charles on 7/25

    I suggested it to Stan but then it would be hard to run all the way from Thailand


    PS, Stan is held to similiar standards.  And now that Megan is about to be school age, play time is over

    I saw the triathlon sign but it was for Memorial Day weekend.  I'll be out of town at some goofy baseball tournament with my oldest that weekend.  I would have had him compete in it, and he'd have probably done well.
