    No doubt there is a balance somewhere. However the truth is no two children are alike. I would suggest the education needs of the child should be the most important factor. If the child needs the extra work in order to catch up\keep up then by all means used that tool.

    Reply to Your thoughts on Stoicism?
    atpollard
    I think that Stoicism, at its core, tends to feed the supremacy of the individual man too much to ever be more than a stumbling block to Wisdom.
    The Christian world view places God too firmly at the center for classic Stoicism and places the collective good of the body of believers too high for Neo-Stoicism.

    I think the best analogy for school is that as kids get older, if they can be shown to treat is as a job, it really helps. I do agree that as they get older they should be expected to take on more responsibility, but I remember nights in middle school on where a teacher would overload with homework as if I did not have other classes or soccer practice, etc. Things such as essays do take time and if a student has no homework and then suddenly hits college and is swamped with it, it is going to be...

    I think part of the reason for so many divorces is that people don't take the time to really marinate in their relationship before tying the knot. I agree with rz3300, I don't know how many divorces are "on a whim" and everyone I know that has gone through one says it was one of the worst experiences of their lives. I think it is wise to not judge, because we cannot possibly know their circumstances, but I would love to see the number of divorces decline....

    When I die, I hope they harvest every usable thing from me...just leave the skin on my face for the sake of those I leave behind. They are just going to rot away in the ground, and I won't know if they are there or not anyway.

    I have never felt a pull to get mine removed. To me, if someone is going to argue to not mark or scar the body on purpose, having a laser to the skin, which does burn and scar it, actually would be an act that further does the thing some believe we aren't supposed to do in the first place....

    And yet the US has a stereotype for "you can be anything you want to be!" It seems our culture tries its hardest to keep the low in their low place. I find this to be tragic...and I would charge anyone reading this to make small steps to even just change someone's next hour, be it with a meal, a bottle of water, or a shirt. It may not be a life time change, but it has to start somewhere. If they have nothing and we have little things, at least give the little things....

    "Husbands, love you wives as Christ loved the Church."
    ... If your date expects "it" at any point before marriage, it is a sign that that is the wrong one.

    (Just as an aside, on our third date I knew that she was the one. I even told her at the end of the third date that we would date for about 6 months, then get engaged, then get married about 6 months after that. She said 'she wasn't sure about that' and I told her, that was fine. She had six months to think...

    GRACE.
    It is a powerful word, but it is more than a word ... it is a new reality. We are a new creation by God's Grace. Washed white as snow by His Grace. Made sons and daughters of the Living God, by His Grace.
    Grace is a powerful reality in the life of the Chosen, God's beloved children. One we have freely received and one we are called to freely give.

    This is a hard topic for me, because it is not one that is purely theoretical, but deeply personal. I do not need...
