    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    School showed an 80 minute anti drug, alcohol and tobacco presentation. My nine year old had a really bad melt down after viewing the part about tobacco and that it causes death, and knowing that both his parents smoke and his Grandpa died because of it. Anyways, I know this wasn't the sole source, rather the pinnacle, since he we've had some deaths in the family, several serious car accidents so there has been some traumatic events. So anyways it was really bad and I had to go to the school and I'm gonna defer specifics but it was really bad melt down and I've been worried sick ever since.

    Pixie Dust. That is a lot for a 9 year old to wrap his brain around.

    We have Dare program up here and I hate it, it is presented to 5th graders. Way too in depth for 9-10 year olds.
    I believe in the rule, first do no harm.

    My only real advice is time, Kids are more resilient than we are and tend to bounce back quickly but you might want to opt out of any more drug presentations, which up here anyhow is an option.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I'm not sure, but I think its not optional here. Thanks HauntedGabe, I'm praying for the resilience and that this was bad timing on the school's part.

    On a positive note his presentation today on the Magic Kingdom, along with his presentation partner, was a success. He said it lasted an hour and they got the most applause. He gave a speech and then expounded using Powerpoint pictures. The kids were most intrigued by the tunnels and the pictures of the tunnels inside and outside as they were built. Also a favorite of students was the only picture with him in it going down Splash Mountain and the excitement in his face.

    Huh! Live and learn. Our trash dudes take everything every week, though if we are tossing a fridge, water heater etc., we have to call a number and leave a message that there will be a heavy item at our address and then at the end of the day two trucks surface for the heavy lift.
