To the management at intercom Rochester thank god you run a radio station and not advice on how to raise children. Unfortunately your idiotic radio personalities think qualified to give advice on raising kids the fact that the word nerd. Describing a child can even be uttered on your airwaves. Is despicable to sort out some refer to which child in such way on top of that in the discussion I heard about how eager kid it's cool or a nerd. One of the Talking Heads of the there's no guarantee that markets will be more accessible is there something wrong with him. Does he not know how college acceptance or hard work leads to higher average salaries what parent wants their kid to be cool what pair cares about the click of high school. What parent goes out of their way to make sure their kids accepted by other small minded shallow children a pair who is also a small minded shallow child. That's soup shop encourage your kids to be Smart don't encourage your kids to fit in when it comes to parenting advice I suggest you have a sit down meeting with these quote. Professionals. To let them know that their words have power and that they should leave parenting to the people with kids Justin. Who'd just just at the door just didn't do it. He said something it is the parent should be concerned with popularity of the children. No parent is determined by their children. I. Lots of parents in fact anybody was to be popular Jordan appellate so what their kids popularity Ed you should be. Any key any parent who thinks how they're cute kids in school does it matter easy. Eric plea and said no I popularity I think captain of the football team or deed actually. I mean how they're able to interact with other kids and I didn't niche for themselves where they're able to crawl. Right. The most important part of going to school learning how to interact with the other people because the majority how successful you beat you will be as an adult. Is based on how we interact with a ping not house march. Yeah. We usually decay is a 'cause the most proms and school another make the news seemed to be the isolated loner dorks. Which is why he achieved concern Erica right there can't make it was like that I think you know I mean original column by. If you haven't dirty kid doesn't fit in its peak and the world for the kid. But he can't be the face of have a legitimate serious discussion and tell leak that your kids fitting it does not make his life all held a lot easier. At a lenient as apparently denied that even. Might add even so much speed their popularity but you just want them to have friends and people liked by others like that senior to me exactly a loser I find it was a group. Well somewhere where they fitted. Dress code word for OK but I had real rallying as narrow ways. If ugly and I think apparently would be happy if let's not say that the most popular kid's school but they have a bunch of friends in the musical debate club or something you know like it but they find like their little. There's talk. What is nerd would become a bad words mean Smart you are going to be earlier scientists. Started books or just came out. Nerves and keep. Probably cold selves not greatly. Competition or hurt you just also like one of the greatest movies of all time he only got by the two revenge of the nerds 23 or four those are all quality films based on. Nerds taken over again and again leave the stretch yeah. Torre and oh yeah. Were Ennis whose parents ups and them saying you're lying behavior parents you don't think about its popularity and your bad parent if you don't chew. It's a major failures apparent. Is that popular you feel like you failure can't. Feel like you can't just raise the loser Mel did your parents that way. Yes they were right but for the yours loves super cool. But I think you also might feel like a failure as apparent that the other way around a limited. Had a lot of friends and is good at sports is up but they're not at their fail in every class like that might also feel like a failure and I. Father would also. Natalie knows my father Otto is a loser he also would point out my loser Francis. Saw my father Tommy and this is horrible parent or so he would go. That gives Kono are weighing in on him he's no good. He's an exam without you we telling me the people I should like and not like I directing me around and I'm like. You're on your buddies are horrible men and utility who'd like annihilate but he did that and I bet you a lot of parents do that like they data pushed. They're kids on the people they don't even wanna hang way I suspect I'll I think it is because it's not gonna work like. Forcing can deduce that the they don't want to do Internet it's not gonna the second work out well for you like Yemen artists like when your mom. Has a new girl from her life you know and they have kids and so they wanna hang together they forced to kids they hang out as we wanna hang out that your.

Point but it didn't work he pushed and pushed and pushed and I pushed back and like any time you push your kid too hard. You're gonna get resistance it's just it's human nature. That I think each list although it may have been in the wrong way your father's heart was a great place. And I'm beginning from the bad pair for trying to mix in a control freak. And well how much control for. It had never met you what's not allow the cries of the our players right you're absolutely stellar the screwdrivers ago.
