    I hear it because I'm a teacher, at five different schools. I've met a lot of parents. What I mean by giving up is that some parents hear about things boys supposedly can't do, like sitting still,...

    Mischievous, your sisters'/niece's behavior is disturbing. I've never heard anyone say boys aren't smart or have to be medicated. I've been teaching for 14 years.

    What I see is parents giving up...

    That's why I say it needs to be okay for men to be househusbands, or any other traditional female role (nurses, elementary school teachers, etc.) We still have a problem with men's stuff considered...

    And this is why I am now looking for trail horse number four. I've been riding for 35 years and I don't remember things being this bad back then. I also don't remember hearing about these "natural...

    I've learned that having a massage two days (one each day) before the flight helps tremendously.

    I agree with the testing. Granted, I'm not in the classroom, but I see nothing wrong with having basic knowledge for each grade, and knowing if the students are learning. It's the way testing is...

    @Texarkana I work for a very large school district, hundreds of schools. I've had some very fine principals, but in a district this large it can take awhile to catch up to a bad one. I'm an...

    Absolutely untrue. I've seen principals remove entire office staff (no tenure) and then try to remove all the teachers just so the principal can put in their buddies. It had nothing to do with job...

    If you're willing to teach Special Ed., you can teach anywhere. There's always a shortage of Sp. Ed. teachers.

    I'd stay away from any state that doesn't have tenure, I don't know why a teacher...

    Doctors really need to discuss side-effects of medications with their patients so everyone can make an educated decision. I have a friend who was put on Paxil for anxiety attacks that were a...

    I've been riding for 35 years and have had various accidents. Never did any doctor/hospital/insurance group question my injuries. Except last year. I broke my finger when I fell off my pony and the...

    That link lead me to a German video of a horse working pole "squares" on the ground. This one should work.

    I've never owned a mule, should I pass on them? I hope I don't sound rude, it's an honest question. I've seen some nice gaited mules for sale, online.

    Sad because I have to go...

    The anti-vaccine movement is relatively new and they're not thinking long-term. What happens when these unvaccinated children grow up, get jobs, and decide to travel on their vacation time? Herd...

    That horse seemed to take some bad steps after a few jumps. Did he cross-canter at one point? Perhaps Bluey was right, maybe he wasn't ready for that level of jumping. Or it could have been an...

    I agree, something sounds wrong. We have lots of coyotes in So. California and we see them around the hills. They always stay far away from the horses. I can't imagine a pack going after a horse and...
