We owned a Rottweiller/German Shepard for 14 years until she passed a couple years ago. She was raised with love and patience, and had the sweetest disposition. I raised 3 three children, and their friends were always in and out of our house. Never a bark, growl or aggressive tendency. Truth be told, our Shih Tzu is the one you have to watch out for. Give love, get love, and that's what we had for 14 years.
I was incorrect in my stating Mr. Bissonnette was an elected official, I apologize about that.
Sorry Mr. Bissonnette, you attitude stinks, and it scares me to think you are an elected official.
A child has no choice in the lifestyle a parent chooses to live nor to control the environment they are brought up in.
I would rather a child be in a Pre K. program and have access to structured activities, nutritious meals and learning (on my tax dollar) then to have groups of children start kindergarten without proper preparation. Those are the kids that are going to need added help to get caught up and stay caught up throughout their school years. I have seen it firsthand. The Armory sounds like a great compromise, and if not that I am open to pretty much any alternative, but I am calling you out. Sorry, if you ignore the fact that some children don't get or can't get a great start in their early years to learning. Ignoring it or getting angry about it doesn't make the problem go away.
