DPerez, you’re not serious, are you? Why are you resurrecting an old thread? Put your hormones away.

Journey, back then, for a full school year, we paid $2,000 per year for three years. When I graduated, tuition had increased by $100, so we paid $2,100 for senior year. I say “we” because I had a job and helped pay for school.

That was over ten years ago. But still. Tuition has only gone up to $6,000 and change, not a whopping increase at all. And it’s a damn good school. They have a foreign exchange program that I only wish we had back then.

Compare that to what greedy schools charge now.

Speaking of which, there’s some protesting going on regarding tuition costs. I think it only pertains to certain colleges. At least for now. That’s what happens when people at the top become greedy a-holes. We’ll be seeing more of this rebellious stuff…

“There are things we all need to think about before starting or raising a family.”

Wow. What an incredible insight. Have you ever thought about writing a book? Or lecturing? Or – dare I dream – becoming a parent? Nah, you wouldn’t do that. Maybe you can’t do that. If so: I’m sorry. Perhaps that’s why you’re so bitter about other parents? It’s ok. As you love to remind us, you do your part helping out with other people’s kids.

But as far as the whole you ‘turned out just fine’ thing goes? No, you turned out to be a sanctimonious ass with an at-best-tenuous grip on reality.

Spoken like a real baby. Well, since you insist, I’d much rather never be a parent than to join the ridiculously clueless, exclusive parenting club you represent if I were offered one of the two choices. I’ve stated the obvious, I wasn’t trying to be your guru. Parenting is a tremendous, constant commitment, and I can’t deny the cluster that makes things more and more difficult because they’re “busy” or “fabulous” (really, entitled) to become involved in the lives of their children. At this point, I’m very happy doing what I do. Among other things, I work with families I’m comfortable with, who live a balanced lifestyle, and who treat me well. But, really, don’t worry about what I do for a living. Not that your arrogant self cares, but I grew up very quickly, in a kind of reality you’d probably pee your pants in. So you can pretty much stick your interpretation of my grip on reality up your… What matters now is that I feel and am successful. Happy, too. How’s that for ya’?

Hey folks,
You don’t need to spend obscene amounts of money for your toddler to go to daycare/school. Let me emphasize that this school is BU#$%IT. Milesquare is a much better program than Stevens (and costs much less as well). My daughter has thrived at Milesquare. There is nothing wrong with sending your child to daycare/pre-school. The reality is that if you don’t send your kid to at least pre-school, they are pretty much screwed in kindergarten. They will likely be both academically and socially behind children who had prior schooling. It’s not like 25 years ago, where it didn’t much matter. Times have changed. That is just the way it is. Please note that I am not bashing people who choose to keep their children home, that’s your thing. I just choose not to do that.

The reality to be likely screwed in kintegarten? whose reality?
Likely academically and socially behind? “This is just the way it is”. Wow sounds like the Koolaid mentality and get that last seat on the bus that drives this crazy wanna be bubble economy. Very sad mentality at that. And certaainly throwing in the argument ” not like 25 years ago” negates any possibility of giving live example of successes. How frightful to live in your mind. Your child is being raised on fear.

Animal lover,
Get your head out of your a$$ and wake up! What I am saying is not based on a Koolaid mentality, it is based on fact . I am a teacher and when I get kindergarten students with no prior school experience, THEY DO STRUGGLE! Most end up repeating either kindergarten or first grade. As for 25 years ago… I was there, it was easier for people to get by on one income. You are probably just some “20 year old hippy wanna be” that wouldn’t understand. By the way, DON’T YOU FU*&ING JUDGE ME ON HOW I RAISE MY CHILD, B!#CH! You don’t know me. I have an education, I am providing my child with an education and a STABLE home environment. My child is beautiful, well adjusted, and very intelligent, unlike yourself.

Oh and Mooshu,

Why not spell out what county you worked in, since it is so relevant. Or is it just smoke?

Sigh. H-u-d-s-o-n. Happy?

It’s not smoke. You self-righteous parents think that everyone else who isn’t a parent is wrong and that you’re in an exclusive club all by yourselves. And, er, you’re not.

Truth hurts.

Oh, and Happy MLK Jr. Day, Journey!

For those folks actually seeking information on Stevens, I would like to apologize for my role in this now hijacked thread. I won’t be adding any more to it.
