Would you let your (minor) child color his/her hair something bold like green, pink, orange? 

Does your child get an allowance?  Did you get an allowance as a child? 

Have schools gone too far in adopting a common core into thier curriculums?  Thoughts?

"Would you let your (minor) child color his/her hair something bold like green, pink, orange? " 

Sure, why not? You commented that you said 'no', and now your kid knows where you stand. I am not sure what you mean by taking a "stand" in the context of green hair. It is not a moral issue after all.

Does your child get an allowance?  Did you get an allowance as a child? 

Yes.

No idea, since I am thankfully past the point where I have to worry about this. As for thoughts, it seems a lot of people are confused about this and think that numbschool math curricula from the 90s are something recently invented for CC.

Cool, I think our DS' are in the same grade and I hope things are going better there. It's the little things at my DS school that bother me, AR points etc.

Would you let your (minor) child color his/her hair something bold like green, pink, orange?  Probably.  I would discourage it, but it's their hair.  

Does your child get an allowance?  Did you get an allowance as a child?  Yes they do.  I did not, usually.

Have schools gone too far in adopting a common core into thier curriculums?  Thoughts? I have no idea.  Our district is only in it's 2nd year doing it.

 And its funny we would discuss it at an IEP meeting where standards should be consistent and alike b/c it is federally mandated but even that is not. 

Our district tries to make the plans individually tailored to the student-that's the goal anyway.

What is in the increase in reading you have found?  For you to read about it or for your ds for more reading in his day?  I will admit I have not done any reading on Common Core.

Everyone talking about it on facebook and the protests they have had in my area for awhile now.

I discouraged it.  He did some white and yellow highlights a couple times, but nothing that was really bold, and he stopped wanting them when he realized that as quickly as his hair grows and is cut, they were only actually there for a  couple weeks.  

Does your child get an allowance?  Did you get an allowance as a child? 

No, he never has.  Technically, he doesn't give me one, either.

My main thought is that I'm glad I don't have to worry about what's going on in schools anymore.  By the time Joel graduated, pretty much everything in the school system was pretty much over the top.  I think I was happier than he was when he graduated. ;)

 Gee, I never thought having a stand about hair color made it moral issue, but ok.  Lol.
