"One of the first effects of school is to break the bond between parents and children, when the children are five or younger. It breaks bonds between siblings, and replaces them with prejudices about age and grade, with rules against playing with kids of other ages, and with social pressure to be hateful and secretive."gipetto

Not that Sandra needs validation but it is SO TRUE I inserted my childrens names and I see one having it put onto them and my other child is putting it onto others. It is repulsive.Posted - May 10 2005 : 10:56:28
YES! YES! YES!!!! My family (my parents, my brother, and I) is finally struggling with trying to put ourselves back together, and I'm about to turn 30. For a long time now I have seen the cause of the huge rift between my brother and me and my father and me as an effect of our school experience.Posted - May 11 2005 : 09:59:09
I remember the looks, posture and attitude I'd get from teachers and other kids in first and second grade when I'd say "My mom taught me this," or "My dad says I can do it this way" (about math or whatever). NOT supportive, not warm.
