Just a bit confused about the recommendation to avoid soft cheeses (such as feta, brie, etc). Should you still avoid them if they have been made using pasteurized milk? TIA... Erin Yeah, that's my question too!!! If so, why the BS...

Quote: How should my conversation go? I want to be snarky so bad and tell her that I don't appreciate her embarassing my dd about the 911 thing! Tell me how should I approach her about this? What should I say? HOMESCHOOL. And if this is not feasible, immediately inform the principal and make a few things clear: 1. That unless she is reprimanded and a letter is put into her personnel file, you will be contacting the district...

Did the kids get up every morning, make it to school, sit in a classroom for 8 hours a day, etc. They deserve a treat too. Kasey Well, let's see. I'm a teacher. Here's how I spent my summer. Unless otherwise specified, all of these activities were...
None here!

Quote: Originally Posted by Venice Mamacita I am a shrink, and there is no "sociopath" diagnosis for a child in the DSM-IV(TR).

No, but "sociopath" is generally better known than "conduct disorder" or "antisocial personality disorder," which is why I used that term, but linked to the relevant content in the...
Quote: Originally Posted by MyCalling Well, I did it. At first they said they might not do anything since he is so young. The worker still wasn't certain what they would do but was concerned that the mother wasn't even making him acknowledge what he did was wrong. She was also worried about the previous sexual acting out and hurting children without remorse. We'll see what they do. My husband and I have decided to pretend we're cool with things...
DO NOT LET YOUR SONS BE NEAR THIS CHILD EVER. NOT EVER. FOR ANY REASON. Listen, I'm not a psychologist. I'm an English teacher, actually, but in the study of characters in literature, I've done a decent amount of research into sociopathy as defined in the DSM-IV. See link.I'm also one of those people who likes criminology as a hobby, so please take what I'm going to say with the appropriate grains of salt now that you know my résumé. From your description,...
Quote: Originally Posted by lckrause I agree with Roar--I wasn't getting that she wouldn't love or be able to parent a child who wasn't gifted.
