    Are you proud of what your kids have achieved?

    Mine's done ok. 19 years old and a stunner, got turned down for the Dutch army due to a weak knee owing to a fall she hadn't told me about! Now is studying for hotel management, loving it, living in a house with 4 mates, has what she says is a cool boyfriend, speaks English fluently as well as Dutch



    yep, no problems there so far - even stays in touch on a regular basis, as far as a regular basis for a 19 year old can be
    the answer to the secret of the universe is the secret itself

    and the secret is.........................................it isn't there

    Mines starting to develop a social conscience. He's noticing others more and helping his friends when they fall down or can't do something that he knows how to.
    Just yesterday he helped his mum by pouring talcum powder all over the floor, added water and then was trying to use the mop. What a mess. The wife was furious but I managed to intervene and get her to see the funny side of it. Then we all cleaned up the floor together.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    Good marks, young for 4th grade, Completely bilingual, and getting damn good at Mandarin Chinese. Plus they both play the piano and khim. Damn proud of them. But at 9 their personalities are getting very different as they are fraternal twins. So I am getting a bit angry about the constant bickering that has now entered the picture.

    Re: Are you proud of what your kids have achieved?

    I am very proud of my 20 and 18 yr old kids. Both at Universities in England now. They did well at school, take part in loads of sport and love music.

    Not the most perceptive though. When my marriage was breaking up with their mother about 4 years ago and we broke the news to the kids that we were splitting up, it was a total surprise to both of them.

    He managed to puke in my mouth the otter week, not a bad shot considering he's only 7 months!
    Seems like there's a hole in my dreams...
