Re: Grade School parents roll call

What don't I like...I don't like the pressure that parents put on their children to 'perform' at such a young age. I don't like the whole Banana Republic attitude that proliferates here. I don't like how it isn't expected that children can stand up for other children, help them learn, help them feel better if they call down or get picked on. There just isn't any sense of 'family' or support that is expected from children. I'd love to see a more earth based attitude - not lunch boxes full of twinkies and lunchables. The kids are spoiled, the parents don't even try to give them any perspective. This isn't true of EVERY family, of course, but the majority of them are easy to NOT love. I just don't fit in, I guess, and I hope that my dd has better luck than I. If it's good for her, it's worth it to me - I just hope it's going to be worth it for HER.
