i dont think i want a school full of children helping to develop my child's social character , i deal with plenty of them and the majority are rude and selfish , i think the plan to take their child and place him in a setting where they can monitor who he's hanging out with, his schooling and train for a sport he could play into his golden years in life and someone pay for it all ,What a deal!!
Brad, your son got a lot taller since I last saw him. When is he playing the next tournament? I like to see it if it is near where I live. As for what you say about dealing with a lot of brats, yes but those brats are tennis brats. Those kids that you teach or deal with mostly from tennis related activities. Most of these kids come from well-to-do families, not all, but most and with a lot of private lessons, they become brats. I don't know why but that is what I see too. But you can't make a general comments about kids in public schools though, some kids are very good; they work very hard and are very smart and don't play tennis. Those kids actually go on to many elite colleges, including Ivy League schools, and do well in life.
