      Re: High school

      Well I never played sports in High School so the start was more of a hassle for me more than anything. Especially readjusting my sleep schedule, but first period sure helped with that.

          Yes, it very much is. The load was eased off my parents a lot when I got a car, but until then they had to come pick me up late almost every evening. It only gets worse as they get older too.

            I played rugby(prop) and crew in HS, and the start of the year was always a pain(getting practices organized, uniforms, medical physical, PT and all that other crap), but it never really lets up. Sports in school just consume a massive amount of time. It pays socially, though. My advice would be to get your kid into a car as soon as humanly possible.

                I play Lacrosse and Football. Football can get pretty demanding. Practices every day but Sunday and they can run pretty late especially in pre-season. All the gear, paperwork, and such can be a hassle. Depending on the intensity of the school's program, injuries do occur a lot and can effect your son if he plays other seasonal sports. My brother dropped football because he didn't want to risk getting seriously injured and putting himself out for Lacrosse season where he was getting recruited by some D3 schools.

                Although I do find playing demanding sports gets you straight with academics for someone like me who likes to procrastinate. Late practices gives you less time to get homework done and I personally feel more pressured to do it under those circumstances.

                        High school life can be pretty stressful depending on a few things. Now that I'm a senior, I've pretty much seen it all! Depending on your school (and sport), playing a sport can be extremely demanding (I'm on the varsity soccer team at my school). Football is pretty much one of the most demanding sports in HS purely because of their practice schedule... they nearly practice year round. What may make it worse, is if the school is known for its football team; in which they may take it even more seriously.

                        You have bigger things to worry about though. Besides academics (which are very important!), try to steer clear your kid away from drugs. HS is when most teens start experiment... for better or worse.

                          Oh yes, as a sophmore, I have seen some good kids do some real bad stuff just to get a high. Even if your kid says he won't do them, don't let your guard down. Peer pressure effects even the most stubborn. A good idea, something I do, get your child to become friends with police officers! Do ride alongs and such, it helps in the long run. You see what drugs and drinking does to a person! If you don't mind me asking, what does your son want to do occupationally? A freshman should have a semblence of an idea.

                            If you want your kid to retain even the smallest shred of faith in humanity, then for the love of god, don't do this. Cops are massively jaded for a reason(constantly seeing the worst of society does that to a person). And anyone who knows any number of civvie cops or MP's knows that the profession attracts bullies and the power hungry(not the majority, but a fact nonetheless).

                              Ehh, another discussion for another thread.

                              Just find out what he wants to do and find programs that allow "exploring" of that job. Like for law, sit in on cases.
