Unlike most states, a child in Texas can petition the court to get a change in custody with divorced parents.

I have been assessing seventh grade essays for about two months now as mandated by the state for about a third of a million of these 12/13 year old creatures. I came across this passage:

"My dad and mom are good parents. I love my dad, I love my mom. My dad loves me, my mom loves me. My dad has a lot of money, sorry mom."

Has anybody ever had their kid walk out on them for that reason?

I have known a few people that has happened to. Though money wasn't the only reason, it was a factor.

292 views and I only got 189???? That's it...now I'm officially jealous! How dare you steal all of my views!!!


Adopt a puppy or kitty,

And here I thought you liked animals...why would you wish THAT on a helpless puppy or kitty?

Must be a sad sad sad life when the only high light is to try to annoy a bunch of people who could really care less.

Not all young-uns go for the money. My son is with his mother,
as he said he has an obligation to take care of her.
Me? I gave up on her years ago.

As for the fathers being able to provide more cash and comforts,
that's a true fact, even after child support and sometimes loosing
everything but the shirt off our backs. I think it's a good example
of how much a man would sacrifice for his family, 'till the parting of ways.
JMHO.

In most of the essays, I see there are many other factors involved. Some of it involves moving to a better neighborhood, not liking a step parent and/or other things that add up to being unhappy where they are living. It really isn't about money in almost every case.

These kids are really very well grounded. In reading what they write (about 10,000 essays so far), I am buoyed in my hopes for our country based upon what I see in them now compared to the past when I assessed these things in 2002, 2003, and 2009.
