I had no clue that school was going to constantly ask me for money and supplies. I've sent her to school with jars, a pumpkin, money for shirts, headphones for the class iPad, books for drives, toys for giveaways.

School is going to break me.

As I told my daughter and son in law last week after a rather rough delivery of their first born...the easy parts over, it's the next 18 years that you have to get through.

I agree with ya Austin, use to be nickles and dimes, now it's 10's andd 20's. I don't know how folks manage to be honest. Glad it's grandkids in my life now.

It is, and I was talking to her last night and she told me she could not move her sticker to purple (The way the reward and monitor behavior) unless we bought her candy and she took it to school for the Fall Festival.

I don't know what I'm going to do, but that makes me mad.

My daughter was recognized by the school for her excellent behavior. I'm a lucky Dad. She is great at home, great at school, and now she has a little friend she plays with all the time.

I could not be happier or more proud.

She is. My wife did a great job. I worked all the time, especially when she was younger, so I know why she's doing so well and I can't thank my wife enough.

Both her and I are big in personal responsibility and lay claim to our children's failures and successes. I think if more parents helped shoulder the burden of failure and showed children how to handle failure appropriately we'd see a different world.

I'm raising an adult, not a grown child. I know many grown children and they ain't doing so great.
