    I honestly don't understand why it's offensive. When you dress up in a Halloween costume, you try your best to look like the person. If you dress up as Marilyn Monroe, you wear a blonde wig, lots of m more »

    I cannot stand shirts like this that promote stupidity, and would never buy one for my children.  However, I have also seen many boys' shirts with similar phrases like, "allergic to homework...favorit more »

    I've always thought it ridiculous that parents get offended by receiving a letter.  I would want to know if my child could have a potential weight problem, and because so many adults and children are more »

    I feel for her.  I really do.  I'm sure it is not easy worrying about the difficulties her child may face.  I also imagine seeing that word brings up what she has known all of her life to be a referen more »

    I fly out of Logan one to three times per year with my family and have never been through one of these scanners.  The only only option is what looks the old-fashioned walk through metal detector. The more »

    Ms. Bloch, after reading your response to my post, I'd like to apologize for the insulting comment directed toward you.  The reason the story bothered me is that I feel way too much importance is plac more »

    The teacher just happens to be a huge Patriots fan, but the kids thought of the idea all on their own.  Right.  I would be more than a little annoyed if my second grader spent a week singing about Tom more »

    So annoying.  Any kid would cry if they had to listen to NPR all day, regardless of what they were discussing.  Put on some age-appropriate music for crying out loud.

    If you do choose the Storyland area, I think your best bet is the Marriott Residence Inn.  Nordic Village/Luxury Mountain Getaways in Jackson is nice, too.  They have a nightly bonfire, with entertain more »

    Exactly, Kar! I know I would also be afraid to go to the movies or church if I heard the recent stories as a child. I couldn't even help but feel slightly uncomfortable at the movies last Saturday.  M more »

    Winter, my son is the exact same age as yours.  At our school, they teach touch typing in 4th grade, and he typed several assignments for school this past year in 5th grade.  They actually even set ea more »

    I'm sure they are out there, but I can't imagine that most parents, or "mothers" who limit what their children watch are doing it to get attention or to make the world think they are a certain kind of more »

    Well said, Kar.   Not letting kids watch something before they are developmentally ready to process it is not keeping them "so shielded".  Yes, they do need to learn the difference between reality and more »

    I am very careful about what my kids watch.  I agree that Toy Story 3 has mean people, mean language (Lotso), and the whole incinerator thing.  My kids were 8 and 10 when it came out, and I remember m more »

    I love the people who say they don't do it out of anger, but they explain why they are doing it. It makes more sense to me if someone got angry and gave their kid a smack. What do you say, "OK, you di more »

    I didn't read the other comments, but to answer your question, Kar, they'd likely stop eventually, but one of my sons was still going strong at 4 years old, and I don't know if/when he'd have stopped more »

    I don't blame them for doing what sells. It's smart on their part. Personally, I wish they'd stick to the old-style country music, so the pop stations wouldn't play it at all, and I wouldn't have to l more »

    We used to tell my son that Daddy works to make money.  Out of the blue one night at bedtime when he was 4 years old he said, "So when Daddy makes the money, does he use a machine?"  He thought he lit more »

    I think it's strange that people say, "I got $.50, that's what my kids are getting." What about inflation? You can't even buy a candy bar for 50 cents. Before I ever thought about what our tooth fairy more »

    We LOVE Sesame Place.  My kids are turning 10 and 12 this year. We went when my first son was 22 months and I was 8 months pregnant, then for the next 8 years after that(believe it or not)! lol  They more »

    Relax there, Big Boy.  I didn't say they were exactly alike, nor that Michelle Obama has never had a job; I'm not very familiar with either of their backgrounds. My comment was in response to all of t more »

    So many of you talk all about Ann Romney not being able to identify with most women because she had the luxurious "choice" to stay home with her children and not worry about finances, as if Mrs. Obama more »

  • Posted 04/13/2012 10:51:53 EDT

    Supposedly the main point of her statement was to imply that because Ann didn't "work", she can't relate to most women.  First of all, what past or potential first lady has ever "struggled" as an adul more »

    My son missed the Kindergarten cutoff by two weeks.  I remember thinking as young two years old that he couldn't possibly wait until six to start Kindergarten, then by age 4 he was reading, writing an more »
