Preconception needs to include the parents present/future (not always predictable) finances &/or medical insurance. A mate (DNA) choice is also a great idea. Not sure I agree with this “Marriage should be the first requirement for agreeing to have a child between 2 PPL.” The horrors of these “Unplanned Pregnancies.” Alcohol/drug abuse effects on the fetus yikes. From birth till the young adult leaves home bottom line parenting skills. Preschool as a former parent of 3 is the building block for a child success in school/life. Corporal punishment had my share of that that growing up, didn’t believe in it for my 3 kids. Not sure how they acquired that stat. Who’s gonna tell the truth on that 1.
My favorite “When a teacher calls a boy by his entire name, it means trouble.” Mark Twain”. When my step-mother did I knew.
My daughter has her LCMSW, her husband MBS & my son a MBA, his current G/F MS in health care.
I got the joys of working with 3 gifted children 2 in grade school (m. f) & 1 (m) in the 9th grade (HS). The 2 males Bill Gates, the female I was just totally at awe with, she knew at a very early age about everything under the sun.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written informative educational short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could make a great movie, documentary, mini TV series, or PP presentation. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)
