When I told Star it was too cold and the wind was blowing too hard so I was leaving, she stuck her tongue out at me – just like a kid.
sorry kid. your mom doesn’t love you. that’s why she gave you your big sister’s 7 year old jacket to wear as a dress. if you were important to her she would buy you fur-lined boots and insulated asswriting pants. i feel sorry for you.

Question by Answers: How do I get my kids home schooled?
As the question states, I would like my kids to be home schooled. I would like to get their school manuals and everything we need to get things started, but I have no idea where to look. This would be for all of high school.
Can anyone tell me where I could get information on this?
Answer by tikitiki
Try looking at your state’s board of education website. Usually just going to your state’s home page, there should be a link somewhere for the school board of education. They should have all the requirements and info needed there to get you started, or at least have some kind of a number to refer you to.

Question by denomme: How do you save for kids’ college without jeopardizing their chances for scholarships?
Am going through the divorce. Ex agreed to save for the kids’ college. Only if the accounts are in the kids’ names, that will disqualify them from many scholarships, right? What’s the best thing to do?
Also – how much do you need to save for college these days? The kids are 9 and 4.
Answer by Jeanette
If the children are 9 and 4 now, you have a chance to save a substantial amount of money for college. I know many worry more about how they can qualify for financial aid versus the fact that it could be that they have the funds available to pay it themselves.
Here are a few things to consider
1) We have no idea that when your children are in college, if the programs of today will be available. There could be other programs available. It is better to accept money than to turn it away just because it will deny you other money.
2) Focus on supporting your children’s academic pursuits. Merit based scholarships are given to children who are at the top of their class, or excel in a certain area. But what parents forget is that your student who may not be validictorian but gets A’s and B’s can really get a scholarship grantor’s attention from being “well rounded”. If that child has volunteered in their community, perhaps has one sport they are involved in (or not) and are in something like drama club or debate, or some committees, the school sees that this young person is likely to positively contribute to the college enviornment and can handle the transition of college life. They shouldn’t go overboard, but focus on diversity.
Also once in college, there is often a small scholarship at some schools for getting good grades once you are in.
Have them apply to as many places as makes sense for their interests.
3) There is nothing detrimental about a child having to work summers in high school and part time in college to buy their books, or supplement their other expenses. It makes them aware of adult responsibilities like budgetting and appreciating things more. And it gives them an edge on having some job experience.
4) Also, consider that many universities allow students to get their “basics” covered at a community college and transfer in. My sister was accepted to a university and then took “basics” like composition, and other basic courses at the community level. It saved big bucks.

Question by James C: What kids movie is the one were the parents of some children dont come back after a weekend trip?
The kids go to look for their parents and on the way stop at a gas station to get gas and an indian clerk gives them a rattle snake fang. The kids follow the map to where their parents should be but end up in this weird town. They eventually find their parents and save them using the rattle snake fang. They soon find out they arent their parents when they cut a cake and green slime comes out.

Phantom Town (1999): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0197765/
“When a sixteen year-old boy and his two young siblings set off on a quest to find their missing parents, their search leads them to a ghost town in the middle of the desert. They soon discover that this is no ordinary tourist spot. In fact, according to the maps, it doesn’t exist at all! Finding their way into this mysterious place, the kids must confront the sinister force that dwells beneath it in order to rescue their parents – and save themselves.”

Question by Shamrock5: How do I keep kids entertained while babysitting?
I’m volunteering @ a camp, & when camp is over, I baby sit until the parents get off from work. The kids find TV & internet boring after awhile, & sometimes, they want to go somewhere, like the park or something but we can’t because of too many kids to fit in the car. How do I keep them entertained?
& every 2 hours, they’re hungry. I feed them meals & give them snacks, & 2 hours later, they’re whining about hunger.
I understand they get bored by doing the same thing all the time, but how can I make some variety? They don’t even like to read. The ages range from 3-17, & sadly the kids 10 & under have better behavior than the kids over 10. & the teenagers are setting a bad example for them.
They get so bored that they become angry & then take their anger out on each other & start fighting, & I have to punish them. I try to do things with them, & they whine, saying “We don’t like that. That’s lame.”
Answer by Maggie N
wow. . . it sounds like you are babysitting a lot of kids at once and that is really hard i know. i found that the best way to keep them entertained is to be playing with them like you are one of the kids. i know that sounds corny but it works because then they don’t really like to you and expect you to plan out their day. figure out what they do like to do and turn it into an obstacle course or game or something. . . . add points so it is like a competition. where food is involved they probably want to eat because they are bored but if they really want food ( at least for the little kids) give them something that has to be made and let them do it so it takes longer! it will entertain them and it will solve the hunger issue longer!
