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.

You and I have nothing in common!

Yes, keggers with wine buckets and minor children present are so much classier than bars...

<p>Franzia isn't bad, I call it cheap b/c it is less expensive than a fancier wine I drink with company or at a restaurant.  The Today show had a wine connosier on a while ago and he was talking good wines, how to order a good one, etc, All the ones they tested were zinfandels (except one I think) and that surprised me.  Affordable wines are nothing to gawk at. </p>

Red or white zinfandel?  There are a great number of very good red zins.

I said that dropping off is normal in MY AREA (that line about it happening during my childhood 10 minutes from where I live now). Which would support our claim that it is, in fact, regional. Can you point out where I clearly said otherwise?

You know I don't either...what happend to it being okay to do things differently in different regions?  Why insist over and over that we are wrong in our thinking and actions?  It would seem silly to continue in the way but my guess is that it will continue...
