my answer is that whether or not its logical, it is real, because i have been there, so for my own purposes, I know what happens when a person dies.

EDUCATION REFORM General 1. Curiosity drives learning if it is allowed to do so and not shut down. 2. Curiosity is shut down via the current system, creating the ADD disorder sudden appearance on the charts. One half of ADD is a person who can’t pay attention.

Hi there, I don't have much more to offer you except to endorse DW a mom's excellent advice - it really does sound as if he's crying out for help and drawing attention to himself in these anti-social ways in a desperate attempt to get help with his difficulties. Also - please, please avoid bringing...

if it was me, I'd calmly inform him that i had noticed he had been stealing and that this is not okay because it hurts other people when he does this and hurts himself over the long term. I'd repeat that several times and make sure it had stuck as a sort of replacement for spanking. then he'd get ho...

I'm an NT, and I simply don't understand the anti-NT attitude. that certainly changes the game of making sense to the thread.
