You might be enlightened to learn how the French look at conditions like ADD/HD.  I find this as fascinating as those sights and smells you brag about, Lol.

Why do you believe they are worldly?

I find it fascinating that you gleaned that from the comments here, since at least a couple of us had read the blog awhile go, you know in a quest for learning about our children's disabilities.  I find it a bit shocking that you would continue to use children's disabilities (whether or wether not you agree with them) as a weapon in a debate.  That doesn't reflect well.

What I find most interesting in this attempt at bias debating/insult is that one didn't take to consider that one was also trying to insult a friend at the same time and that friend didn't catch that either.

Well worth repeating and this is why I literally laughed out loud this morning.  Of course I have the being accused of bias debating to make this even funnier, oh the irony.

What is the reason that Americans move to France to educate their children?

I am thinking a better education. I personally have never done it so can't give you first hand. You would have to ask them.

Been meaning to ask you and keep forgetting if you have ever been to American Jewelry and Loan place. Did you ever seen or met Lee? He is hilarious lol.<<

Well, since you mentioned "many Americans", perhaps you can ask them since you seem to be the one with experience on the subject?

Spring, You and I would have a marvelous time! Salute...

We would. Friends we met on a cruise 7 years ago just went on a Meditterean cruise. They loved it and wished we went with them as they met other people and had fun but said it was just not the same as going with us (and THEY are worldly people as they travel every few months-no kids and hubby goes for work (most of the time but not all) and she follows) Laughing
