Comments: FIND OUT WHAT IT MEANS TO ME

If all the 7th graders were waiting around for
someone to respect them FIRST before they gave
respect...? It's a Catch-22,isn't it?

Great post and perspective Sarah! I concur with you and hopefully my children will not be one of those that speaks to adults as that 7th grader did, hopefully I can do a better job at raising them than what that child was offered.

Regarding the Muslims, VDH had a great piece on that a couple days ago. Iíd link it but for some reason I canít even open his page today.

Wow, great post. And that was a great analogy. I had the same issues with my students when I was teaching. I loved teaching very much, but I don't think I'll go back to it and this is precisely why.
