I agree about confronting the teacher's supervisor.

comment Is putting a 9-year-old to bed early abusive?
That said, if she is getting up before 5:30 (and presumably her parents are up too), she most certainly has some awake time at home, it just happens to be that the hours are in the AM before school.

comment How to prevent “open air incidents”?
This was an issue with our firstborn for a little while, and my third (who is 3 months) will sometimes do this in the bath, but it generally goes away relatively quickly.

comment As an atheist, how should I explain theism to my children?
@DA01 Unfortunately, all religious assertions (for and against) assume facts not in evidence. "Critical thinking" is something that everyone asserts, even those crazies who hand out leaflets, or go on mission trips, or try to get the Pope arrested, or... whatever. No one believes himself to be inherently self-contradictory (fundamental tenet of most religion -- man is great at self-justification) and any statement which asserts that this matter is "clear" or that "critical thinking" will resolve it was said by someone not thinking clearly or critically.

Either that or send it to clown school...

comment At what age is it appropriate to bring my children to an (Italian) opera?
Musicals and operas are horses of wildly different colors and should not be confused.
