I tried to watch it but the so-called experts were so loud, smug, and strident I threw up a little in my mouth and quit about a minute into it. I don't know how people watch this stuff on a consistent basis.

1. Having dinner with your family/kids 5 nights a week -- We do this.


2. Church or synagogue weekly. -- We don't do this. And this is probably

I didn't have quite the visceral reaction you did, but you're right, they were very smug. They'd fit in well with this board actually, what with the "do it as I do it or you're wrong" attitude.

The Today Show? LOL! That Borba person is truly annoying. So, according to these clowns, checking home work daily translates to valuing the child's intellectual development. Brother!

I'm supposed to check my high school aged children's homework daily to show that I care about his intellectual development? Really? That's funny. Makes me wonder if their expertise were developed on actual living breathing teenagers. Is this supposed to continue into college, too? Am I supposed to move to wherever my kid goes to college so I can check his English papers?
