Surviving Middle School
I think I would have flunked Middle School if I were going through it now. These 6th Grade Teachers are INTENSE! The emails they send, the hours of homework they assign, the sheer number of details the tweeners are expected to remember is both awesome and daunting. I genuinely cannot read their school schedules because they are too complicated and don’t have a legend to tell you what anything means. I think I must have been preparing my child for pre-school, not college, all these years. Could I really suck as a parent that much? Don’t answer that! Here I thought I was nurturing independent people by planned sleeping-in so the kids had to rummage for their own breakfast. These could be future valuable forest foraging skills! I’m creating little Survivor castaway contestants!
