    I am not being racist but my kid doesn't have white friends who can challenge his thinking methods. These kids just want to be gangsters .. Tut.

    If this site had a kiddy section, i would let him join. You would rip him to pieces, although he has strong views and is good at expressing them, he is still just a kid. I have to remind myself that sometimes.

    Storming out of the classroom during lessons. Refusing to do his work.
    Swearing and answering back at teachers. Running down the halls. Being late for lessons. Blah Blah Blah.

    It was mentioned that Elliot may not be stimulated enough in the classroom .. No shit Sherlock. Having a 1000 kids to look after though, school is about gving and showing respect, that is what i was told anyway.

    Someone had posted a link to a kids personality test. We both agree on all the strengths and weaknesses.
    Lol .. Elliot's future plans are grand. Lets give it a year and see if he changes his mind.

    I think your best bet would be to support his decisions to do things his own way. If it really is more in his interest to act another way, you can bet he'll probably realize it on his own when the time's right, and will do it of his own free will.
    Totally agree .. School doesn't teach you about life .. Only life does that .. Are my geography lessons on glaciers helpful now .. NO. Its the potential though. I have to think things through so bloody hard (i know what i mean) .. this kid has a brain like a sponge. He reeled off his lines from a school production from 3 years ago the other day just to remind me that he knew them. lol. I am happy to plod on in life. I will get what i want. I just have his best intentions at heart.

    He doesn't hang around with children of his intelligence level?
    His friends have no interest in learning?
    His friends are deadbeats and losers?
    He has no common interests with his friends?

    What does having white friends have to do with someone challenging his thinking methods???

    There are many ways to word that statement, but I guess you just picked the one that was most honest to you, and I can't fault you for being honest.

    why...sounds to me like a typical entp kid to me...maybe with big ideas and very self-aware very early on, but entp nonetheless

    its if he actually starts working towards those ideas when you might doubt his ENTPness...or just agree that what we have here is a fairly mature and determined ENTP. determination, in this case (as in mine), comes from adversity. he knows that if he wants something, hes gonna have to go get it himself. there is almost no sense of entitlement.

    also, this dude is going places. im only 20 and i barely know what life is but saslou, id say your very lucky to have a kid like that

    ENTPs are Ne-dom. They are obsessed with possibilities. Thousands of myriads of different possible scenarios are forming in their head within a single day.

    "What would happen if...?"
    "Should I try that?" -just for fun-

    As you said, we often have no idea what life really is, because we consider the infinite possibilities. We could be anybody, just living anywhere, anytime.

    We experience several lives simultaneously, and yet we don't understand any. We question everything, so there's usually no definite or ultimate answer.

    Being rich makes us poor. Or vice versa.


    its if he actually starts working towards those ideas when you might doubt his ENTPness...or just agree that what we have here is a fairly mature and determined ENTP. determination, in this case (as in mine), comes from adversity. he knows that if he wants something, hes gonna have to go get it himself. there is almost no sense of entitlement.
    Maturity is a word that should be banned from the vocabulary of every ENTP.

    How can you say that?

    Why?

    I have said it, i am proud. I have always kind of pushed that on my kids. You want something, you go and get it, there are no free tickets in life, and nothing is going to be handed to you. I think it is a positive thing to push on them, even if i am pushing.

    Freaking hell, don't tell me that, i am going to go grey. lol.

    Point taken .. (i won't tell you i was partially quoting my kid) .. Maybe he just knows they are stupid kids. Yet still hangs around with them.

    Resistance is futile



    I would like to help, but I was a rolemodel child. Born conservative, die conservative

    P.P.S.: When the cops asked for my phone number, after I drove the truck drunk through town, being 13 years old, I gave them the number of the pizza delivery
