As you can see by the above post, MaltaMoron, I'm not the only Bob on the forum.
So just because the alleged person who allegedly raped your alleged son was allegedly named Bob, and allegedly was in Malta, doesn't prove that he and I are the same individual.
But this is of course academic, because we all know that you have no son, and there was never any rape.

One good thing about home work is this it gives parents a chance to get involved with their childrens school work.Parents can then play their part in their childrens education.

Standard formulas for the amount of homework based on grade level is rather idiotic. Homework in general does not benefit the student, as it is not done in a controlled environment as in the classroom where the teacher can be questioned thereby the student will be given the correct instruction and reduce frustration when the student does not recall or know how to do what is being requested. The request by schools for parents to assist in the student's homework is also flawed. The parent may not have time due to their own workload coming home, not able to understand the homework or many other reasons. There is also no proof homework is beneficial for students below high school level.

To Timb hello homework teaches a child to think on their own and to work on their own so there for homework is important to a childs educational development.To think and work on your own are very important social skills,so homework does play apart in a childs educational and social development and also in the development of social skills.

I'll come over and help you with your maths homework Katie. But we work up a sweat then we'll have to take a shower afterwards.

The kids are too stressed by standardized tests etc. I can see slight homework but not overbearing stuff. And as far as "projects" go
some kids have parents that really get involved and others whose parents may have younger children or work the night shift. Grading a project by
parent assisting child and child working solo is unevent territory. But the what do I know. My mother was from another country and worked nights
so I took care of my stuff myself. Just too much pressure in education....Edison did not go too far in grade school but he had ideas and was a thinker.
take care...

More of your depraved handiwork, Pedo Bob. What makes you write and post this paedophile filth? And why don't you post undervyour own name? The location gives you away, as does, by now, the very content of your postings. "Not the only Bob", eh? That doesn't mean a thing: whoever said that you were? The point is that I know which Bob you are.

I think homework is helpful. But ideally, it should be done in the nude, with a clothed female present.
If you don't do your homework, the same clothed female should give you a bare-bottom spanking.
I really laughed at this one! You are as nudeboyloving as they come!

I fully agree. When my son gets home from an outing of nude swimming with his friends at the local college, I insist that he does his homework before bed. If he doesn't, I give him a bare bottom spanking!

I didn't say I was several users, I said there was more than one person posting as Bob on the topix network. Including the post that I referred to. But I am not surprised that someone like you, who can't write, can't read or comprehend either.

But how many from dorval, canada who post boy loving drama proses?
EXACTLY! Ever since 11 months ago, when the LardAss moved east from Toronto (just as Tinkerbell likewise moved east from Kingston, ONT to NS , a coincidence that Bob noted in his first post for the month of April 2012) all posts from Dorval, or sometimes from Montreal, just a few miles away--regardless of whose name they bear--are Pedo Bob's.
