  3. PreK Potty Problems!

  5. Euthanasia. Murder or Mercy?

  6. Sex ed OMG
    Wow! "Popping the cherry" is so old-school. From the 1950's at least. And teens shouldn't be having regular old sex - they don't have the maturity for the ramifications. BUT anal sex?? That's...

  9. Euthanasia. Murder or Mercy?

    We must be twins separated at birth. Just read the new comments this morning and the "smile" or "fake it" made me think of a meeting I was in yesterday with the new school psychologist, a parent,...

    Maybe in the next employee meeting you could mention it and tell your side of the story and then ask for suggestions. If you are seen as sincere in wanting to make things work, it may help. One...
