The end of this article states "policy development is needed to better support families toRead More provide conditions in which young children can flourish". It is not good if work and transportation schedules interfere with the needs of small children, resulting in parents and children being separated 12 hours of the day. My questions are what policy, developed by what agency, and who pays for this support? Maybe schedules need to be changed.

A person is, between all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended. Bullying isRead More difficult to define, because in today's society it extends much farther beyond someone taking your child's lunch money or pushing him or her around on the playground, and the affects of this type of behavior go much deeper than a black eye. Teasing, taunting, ethnic slurs and sexual harassment is all forms of bullying. Bullying behavior is generally repetitive hostility and aggression directed toward a victim who is physically or mentally weaker than the bully. Thus, being a parent I've learned to be vigilant and more particular on the safety of my teens especially when it comes with bullying cases. Then I found this cite that provides a protection for children from a safety mobile protection that can access family, friends and 911 in times of emergency.

Every school is a party school because there are kids that party at every school. Kids will party ifRead More they want to party, no matter what school they attend. I would absolutely let my child attend Iowa because it is one of the best public universities in the country in multiple fields. Heidi: it's hard to believe that you got an "advanced degree" from Iowa, seeing your grammar and spelling errors in your post.

The drinking culture of students all over the country has increased and is somewhat disturbing. AndRead More again, I'm not convinced this ranking is based on much scientific research. It's a great institution, and students will set their priorities based on their own value system. And that happens everywhere.
