Homework Approach For Parents

“My children were such fun – until homework entered the picture.”
~ Anonymous Parent

Educators do not think less of a parent if something is answered incorrectly by the child on homework.

Homework is necessary to reinforce what kids learn during the day, according to educators, but it can drive a wedge between parents and children at times. What can be done to change that?

Parents Anonymous was a godsend to me many years ago when six-year-old Chelsey and I were clashing over homework issues daily. I had been under the impression that I had to sit her down every afternoon until every spelling word was practiced, every language assignment was finished and every math sheet was completed correctly. Chelsey was spending as much as three or four hours on homework every day and sometimes even more on the weekends.

Twice Baked Potatoes with Romano

Little tiny boats to eat

Sometimes we think: ‘What can we possibly do with potatoes that we haven’t done before?’ The answer usually involves cheese.

Twice-Baked Potatoes with Romano

  • 4 medium Russet potatoes (about a pound)
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup grated romano
  • about a 1/2 cup shredded Romano
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Bake potatoes at 400 until done, about 45-50 minutes. While the potatoes are baking line a baking sheet with parchment paper and mound the shredded cheese into about six flat circles. When the potatoes are done, drop the oven temperature to 350. Bake the cheese rounds until brown, about 15 minutes. Set aside. Let the potatoes cool slightly and cut in half. Scoop the flesh into a large bowl, reserving the skins. Mash with grated cheese, butter, cream and salt and pepper. Scoop into shells and line on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 until hot, about…

‘Face” It, Joan Rivers-Your Senile Sense Of Humor Sucks Shit!

This plaster-of-paris faced, ridiculously rude relic of sarcastic humor needs to retire from her faded and jaded limelight. Her “jokes” about the three young ladies from Cleveland, Ohio that were held captive by the devil incarnate Ariel Castro…were far from funny. In fact, for the folks in Northeast Ohio that were riveted by this case for over 10-years-there is nothing but general contempt for this cold-hearted wench. It’s bad enough that Joan Rivers barely retains any of the original skin that once adorned the cracked space…posing as her face. Obviously, if she ever had any heart, there is very little of it left as well.

Rivers is an absolute asshole. It’s bad enough that she cracked a joke on Tuesday, that compared living with her daughter with the pain and suffering endured for over a decade by Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus. Today, according to TMZ, and…

Aurora Theater Shooting Victims Outraged Over Attack Ad

Koch-backed group Americans For Prosperity’s attempt to attack Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) backfired Wednesday, after it was revealed that the group used a photograph of the senator with President Obama in the aftermath of the Aurora movie theater shooting in July 2012.

The ad was part of AFP’s multi-million dollar onslaught of anti-Obamacare ads against Democrats in competitive races. Using footage of the candidate standing next to or shaking hands with the president is a common tactic. But this particular photo was taken while Obama, Udall, and Gov. John Hickenlooper (whom AFP cropped out) were visiting victims and their families at the Children’s Hospital in Aurora.

AFP retracted the ad after families of four shooting victims condemned the group for “exploiting our tragedy for political gain.”

“The use of an image taken from the President’s visit to Colorado to meet with us after…
