Not such baby names

From the class I am embedded in. Most students are college juniors or seniors (probably aged 20-22); one is older than me (guess which!) Most are from GA, a couple from AL and SC and two from Washington DC. All white.

On 'Tiger Moms"

Since Casper, who is now nearly seven and a half, was born, we've had: Attachment Parenting, Helicopter Parents, Slacker Moms, Free-Range Kids, Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety (i.e. ADD Kids), Indigo Children ... and I'm sure I've forgotten some.

So I can barely raise an eyebrow at the Tiger Mom.

But I did get Casper to rewrite her homework more neatly, with spelling corrections, tonight.  (Report card came home yesterday, and she's doing better in her problem areas but neatness and spelling remain the big issues.  Still an A+ art student.)
