    The books got all these weird foreign words. The kids trying to learn to read English. I can't even tell her how to say this gibberish. I asked the school why they would use such books, especially for children who are just learning to read.
    9 years old and "just learning to read"? Hunh, one of the things you should do as a parent from day one is teach your kid to read. You wouldn't want the godless school system to do that would you? And its easy, read to your kid, go to the library, buy books. Takes time.
    And if you are a really good parent you might even sneak in a second language, that way your kid would not necessarily think foreign words are gibberish and your kid would turn out smarter than you.

      I definitely would. It wasn't my kid though and didn't meet her till she was 8. It drove me nuts that no one apparently made sure she could read. I read constantly. My house is a basically a library. When I have kids , they'll be homeschooled .

        Wonderful, since you apparently think other cultures not worth the effort any kids you have will be social Luddites. Just what this country needs.

          Lol! How you gonna diss me when you don't even know me? Half of the million books in my house are about other cultures, especially ancient cultures. If you teach your children, you would make them presumptuous, elitist tools I'm sure.

            Calling the terms used by other cultures "gibberish" tells us a lot more about you than you probably want us to know.

              Nah. You don't care. If you did, you could read about it for yourself.

                  You're kidding, right? You clearly made fun of another language/culture. And I have taught my children. All 4. Elitist, golly gee, let me ask my oldest, the M.D. who spends part of her vacation with medical teams to Central and South America. But to do that, she had to learn---a different language, imagine!!

                  Or the youngest who spends part of his time providing pro bono legal services.

                  Ah well, good luck to any home schooled children you might have.

                    Yeah. That I'm pretty much half Mexican , and speak Spanish. I sure wouldn't know about anything except white Murican culture.

                      Nobody said anything about levels of heaven.

                        Except you did, see post #53 where I asked, based on your earlier posts:

                        "Are there levels in heaven depending on how "good" you were on earth?"

                        And you replied:

                        "Kinda."

                        What are "kinda levels"?

                            Let me guess... some of your best friends are gibberish. Connie might be impressed with that game, but the rest of us aren't.

                            I sure wouldn't know about anything except white Murican culture.
                            That would explain why you call what other people speak "gibberish." You offended when other bigots say that about Spanish?

                              And you, apparently, are unable to support your earlier statements. You make a very poor disciple for Christ.

                                My maternal grandparents are Mexicans. Well, my grandfather is Mexican, my grandmother is part Mexican. So I was referring to my family, not just my friends.

                                And if we spoke Spanish to people who don't, it would be gibberish to them.

                                I had to lol when you pulled that liberal garbage "ha I guess you have Mexican friends". No, I have Mexican grandparents. And Mexican friends. Way to be an overly sensitive politically correct elitist and a bigot at the same time, though. That was impressive.
