Maybe I'm not really a 1989 UM Grad. Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, Pinky.

I'm not really sure but I've been trying not to call attention to it as my prodigious number of mgopoints turns on 1991 UM GRAD and thus has been very good for my sex life.

A quick Google search, however, reveals that he's actually a full year older than my son, so I don't feel so bad about him not yet having an offer from Coach Harbaugh.
Plus, I'm sure that my son will grow a full foot in the next year and become athletically gifted.

...you talk to Dr. Roger Lauer. He is a neuropsychologist in Ann Arbor. Came highly recomended. Our son is entering 9th grade this fall and was diagnosed with ADD in 4th grade. He was doing well academically until this year. With high school looming, we decided to invest some time and money in to having a full evaluation. The report from Dr. Lauer confirmed much of what we had been seeing and suspected, but he put together an action plan to help get our son back on track.
His evaluation will identify ADD, learning disabilites, anxiety, depression, etc.
It's worth the time and financial investment if you can swing it.
As for some background, our son was previously getting all A's, except for a B in advanced math. My wife and I are both Michigan grads and live in Birmingham.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Which school?||
Wow. That's a lot of kids.
I'm interested to know which school your son is attending, if you're willing to share.
Our son is starting at Seaholm in Birmingham in the fall...and my wife and I just came from a meeting there to discuss his class placements.
The counselor indicated that they freely move kids up and down within the math track. Maybe you should consider moving him back a notch...and he'll do better...which will help his confidence...and then move him back up?
Seaholm only has about 350 kids per grade.

I understand your point about peer groups, but you can't generalize an entire school. Every school has kids who are motivated and ambitious...even in schools filled with a lot of "provincial" families.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You are completely||
You are completely misunderstanding cause and effect. The kids at these schools are future leaders because their parents are current leaders. The schools aren't doing anything unique to prepare them. It's self-selecting. Wealthy successful people are more likely to have wealthy successful children. And these are the people who live in areas with good schools and/or send their kids to elite private schools.

I've never understood the hate for Billy Joel. He's a great storyteller and accomplished pianist. Also puts on very good live shows.

I was sitting in a lecture hall in Ann Arbor during that one. Felt my seat rumble. Realized it wasn't gas. Knew right away it was a quake.
