You have my sympathies. FWIW, the district that discontinued the gifted program is Glencoe IL. You could probably contact the superintendent for some pointers on how to deal with parental entitlement issues.<quoted text>
Wow! I would love them to discontinue it here.
When I was in school and tested for gifted there were 7 kids from thr entire grade. They were all on our advanced team and had 2 classes solo. I didn't want to be on it, lol!
Well, I have "emerging professor" on my belt and I will use it. Going to train parents on my expectations and NOT tolerate abuse or bullying from a parent.

easy peasy. sit them in those little chairs until they have to pee, and make them raise their hand and ask to go the the potty.

The book she plugged is EXCELLENT for girls that age. Squishy, you'll want to keep it in mind! Bought it a few months ago for my girl and have highly recommended it!

Even though I know Amy will get a kickback from it, I have put it on my books-to-get list.
Thanks for the recommendation.

My pleasure! It's actually an "American Girl" book, believe it or not!
