I am pretty amused by the appearance of this article in KPF. Is it supposed to be something that we tell our teenage kids?
I try to leave myself out of my kids's dating affairs and I wonder if it is the same here. Well, unless I need to fight fire then I tend to get involved.

My DS used to have headlice too. And that was during winter!

Well... in the Ivy league schools, people have to take contrasting subjects to make sure that they have a well rounded education. These kids turn out to become really knowledgeable and 'smart'.
