In an effort to move on from the other thread, Lol......  What is helicopter parenting IYO?  Do you see it only at school or in other settings as well?  What does it look like?  Provide examples if you can, Thank you.

There is most definitely superior beer. I haven't had a Bud or Coors in years.   My beer of choice, when available, is a Trois Pistoles or a La Fin Du Monde.  Or a good hefeweizen.       Bar doesn't equal dive or smoky cheap place.   Bar is simpy anyplace that serves, as its primary purpose, alcohol - but can also refer to the area within a restaurant that serves alcohol.

Sure.  Page 42, today.  Your 83rd post.  You clearly said it is not the norm:

<<I really love how you all completely dismiss what you've been told by ppl who live in the same region whose experiences mirror one another. But since you brought it up, I don't recall any parents sticking around at my bday parties when I was kid, either. So this whole drop off thing must not be a new phenomenon since it was happening in the 70s and 80s. And I was born and raised 10 minutes from where I live now.>>

I think you've run into some confusion. ;)

Oh sure, not a problem you quoted for me just a page ago so it's easy to find.  Change the nunber to 50 post shown and then go to page 9, just a few down, you quoted it to me and I thanked you for quoting it for me and I quoted it in my post.  It's also on page 8 I think, we have talked about this a couple of times now and  Haz mentions a couple of times that she didn't know your region.  Honestly since you quoted it for me, I'm surprised that you forgot it so quickly.  Perhaps a quick reread of the thread would be helpful at this point?

aw I'm hurt.... then again I haven't been here in over two years so maybe you've just forgotten my rapier wit and effervescent sense of style and panache...

I think you might want to re-read that post as it says dropping off at birthday parties is not a new phenomenon and hasn't been since the 70's and 80's, so it is common and regional to drop off at birthday parties.

I said it wasn't a new phenomenon since it occured in my region during my childhood. The only thing I'm confused by is how you = that w/it not being the norm. What I said supports the fact that dropping kids off at bday parties is normal behavior in our region and has been for well over 30 years. That statement doesn't contradict anything I've previously said at all.
