The child called to ask me "Mom, I'm at the bank depositing my check,where do I write down how much my checks are"? I
The child has been doing algebra since grade school, has had 4 years of advanced math in high school,a high school he just graduated from I might add, and he doesn't know how to fill out a simple bank deposit slip!! Whats the world coming to people?
I remember when I was in high school, I realize it was 700 years ago, but come on. Basic math class we ALL learned how to do all that stuff. Deposit slips,check ledgers,paying bills, and if that wasn't enough we got a second dose of it in economics, which back them was a required class, but not any more!
I blame the schools. Yes we live in a town deep in Bulldog country that's school system is ranked nationally in the top 10 and 1st in the state. BUT my child can't balance his own
Don't get me wrong,I take part of the blame as well.I
I guess that's just one more thing I will have to add to the list of skills my son will have to learn to do before he can leave for college in the fall..
1) get up when alarm goes off
2) take meds ON TIME
3) keep up with schedule
5) AVERAGE CHECK BOOK
6) FILL OUT DEPOSIT SLIPS
7) PAY BILLS ON TIME
8) DON'T SPEND MORE $ THEN YOU HAVE
This is going to be a long summer < sigh >
