Korridel raises some good points. Also know that almost every teenager
becomes a handful at some point, if the kiddo is there yet. I'm sure
nobody would wish their teenage selves upon anyone, given enough time
to reflect.

One of the things we've strived for with our kids (2 1/2 and 8m) is
autonomy - reasonable levels for their age. My son (2 1/2) has a stool
he has to get all his stuff from the bathroom himself, helps prepare meals,
helps set the table, and gets food for his little sister. I'd recommend
reading up on the Montessori method. It's about growing your child with
autonomy to help them take pride in the things they do and go for the
satisfaction of the acts they do.

With older kids? What sort of conversation(s) and engagement do you currently
have with them? Are you talking to them, asking them about their day?
It's important to connect with your kids. You say your kid lost interest
in Chess - Have you asked them why? Kids can have issues with highly
complex tasks like chess, and especially if it's being forced on them.
Don't get mad at the responses your kid gives - take them and let them share
them with you. It'll grow a healthier kid and experience for you.

You would be best to make use of "Bem's theory of self perception". Consider a
chore such as the washing up. If you treat your kids for doing this they will
think that you are giving them the treat because if you didn't they would 
refuse to do the washing up. Better, if the children do a poor job of washing 
up refuse to let them clean the floor. This way your children will think that
cleaning the floor must be a reward - or else, if they don
t really like 
cleaning the floor and that is accepted by all sides - that cleaning the floor
is the price for doing the washing up. Why would there be a price for doing 
the washing up? Because its such fun!

I know there are books on the subject, but I'm going for 
crowd sourced wisdom... what are the keys to raising gracious kids?

When I come home from work, I occasionally (once per month ish)
have a treat for the kids 6, 4, and 1.  And apprently they enjoyed 
it so much, that most times I come home the kids run to me and 
ask "Did you bring a treat for me?".

And then groans of disappointment when not.  Is deprivation the 
best strategy?  I'm hardly joking.  My 6 year old loved chess 
until I taught him Agricola, and chess just became relatively 
unfun and he no longer likes it.  I am scared to death about 
ever exposing him to video games...
I learned as a parent it is far easier to never give than to 
have to take away... but how do I mold them to meet
disappointment with grit and grace?

I recently received a Google Home Hub and a Chromecast Ultra.  While I know
what these devices can generally do, I definitely feel like I'm not getting the
full experience out of them that others who have purchased them would have.
 
So, if you have these kinds of devices, how do you make use of them?  Is anyone
at the "couldn't live without mine" stage, and what got you there?  Or is it
more of a novelty at this point and doesn't get much use after the initial
experience?

Is it again?  I dropped off after... 15th or so season because it got too
repetitive.  (Except for the trilogies, those were always good.)
 
I heard around season 18 they started doing more of a week-to-week story arc
instead of individually contained episodes, but not sure if that helped or not.

Not every lottery bet is statistically loss making. Especially with rollover of
prize monies, sometimes you have a statistical positive expected value.

Stuffed peppers is a very versatile dish.  You can mix and match ingredients,
what's on hand or what you prefer.  I like doing red peppers with shredded
chicken.  I saute the chicken with some garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes.
Use white or brown rice, or a combo.  Great recipe to play around with!

Reply to: Note 14421 posted by Reina

Rich people like to pooh pooh the lottery. They like to get all
uppity and holier-than-thou and say "Only idiots play the lottery"
or "the lottery is a tax on people who don't know math". And I'm here
to tell you that I *do* understand the math, and I think they're
extremely wrong. And they got to be so wrong by letting themselves
get swept away by hyperbolic situations and a lack of perspective.

So here's the real deal...

Reina, your initial statements are absolutely correct.
A person in nearly all situations can figure out a way to set aside, let's say, $25
every month for lottery tickets. In fact, even homeless people who make money
by panhandling can do it if they don't blow everything on cigarettes and hobo
wine.

But you're probably wrong in thinking that doing so for 10 years consecutively
guarantees a win for any individual. Here's the thing, though. It doesn't
matter. Because SOMEONE will win. And that someone will have just launched
themselves out of poverty in a way that few other actions can.
And everyone else will have set themselves back only very slightly.

So you're very right. You can hold on to your few dollars every month
and tell yourself "oh, it will never happen". And at the end you'll have
those few extra dollars and still be poor. Or you can gamble the few extra
dollars and have a very very small chance of launching yourself into
a new tax bracket.

Since people liked my last diagrams, here's a new set:

|
|     The state of all poor people when nobody buys
|     lottery tickets.

|       /       /                                     <- some of them not poor anymore (YAY!)

I like to use the red peppers because I think they are a little sweeter
than the green. The red peppers have the most nutritional value because
they've been on the vine longest. Green peppers are picked early and
haven't had the chance to turn yellow, orange, and red while on the vine.


For the stuffing I use a low-fat ground beef (97% lean). You can use
ground turkey, or even ground pork - since pork would be fattier you
could also just add a portion of the ground pork for flavor. I put the
meat in a bowl and add cooked white rice, how much you use depends on
your own taste. I use the visual as a guide. Try not to smash the rice
while stirring it into the meat.

Place a generous handful of the meat mixture into a halved, cored, and
seeded pepper. Line these up in a small casserole dish, cover with 
tomato sauce, cover with foil, and bake at 350 for 45-ish minutes.

Ingredients :

1 whole chioken
4 carrots
4 parsnips
1 cabbage
roasting potato's (about 300g per person)
2 onions
4 cloves garlic
jar of mixed dry herbs
tomato paste

Method :

prepare all veg (chopped into edible fork sized chunks)
except onion (just remove skin/top+tail/quarter with large sharp veg knife)
top/tail/peel carrots/parsnips
"pick" + wash cabbage leaves
peel potato's + cut in half/quarter so all roughly same size
(half a small palm)
peel/top/tail garlic + cut in half

Method 2 :

Pre-Heat oven to 180-190 C (read cooking instructions on chicken packaging)
or check with your butcher or check online with google or another search engine
also note the full cooking time

Place 1.5 Litres water into a large saucepan to make gravy
add onions, garlic, approx 1 carrot, approx 1 parsnip,
small handfull of cabbage leaves, 2 or 3 pieces of potato
(YES! Potato's have flavor!!)
about 5 teaspoons of dried mixed herbs, or even fresh if you have them...
about half a 300 ML tube of tomato paste or about 3-4 small-medium
ripe/slightly overipe tomato's/1 small carton of "passata"/half a 300g tin of
chopped tomato's
say about 5 teaspoons of sugar or 3 teaspoons of honey (BUT NOT BOTH!!)
and that's the gravy taken care of... leave on a very very low simmer
(only just bubbling tiny bubbles or just a tiny bit lower heat) - this is one
reason why a GAS cooker is ESSENTIAL for a roast dinner...

Place chicken in a roasting tin suitable for middle shelf of the oven
with enough room for another roasting tin on the top shelf above for
the potatos
once Oven is up to temperature... baste the chicken in vegetable or
sunflower oil
oil,thoroughly, get messy! hands is best way or use a basting brush/stick if
you're a bit girly...
generously season with salt and pepper, maybe add 3-4 teaspoons
of mixed herbs sprinkled lightly+evenly over whole chicken

place potatos in a deep roasting tin suitable for top shelf of the oven
above the chicken on the middle shelf
cover in oil and make sure there is plenty of oil in the bottom of the
roasting tin so that the potato's don't dry up and burn...
some salt and pepper wouldn't hurt...

now you can relax
make a note of the time
approx every 20-25 minutes the potatos need to be "turned"/basted
CAREFULLY so that they don't turn to mush
the chicken needs to be kept moist with oil and re-basted at the same times
asda potatos (sorry, as on a new line thinks I'm trying to Set my
"attack_spell" variable...)

When the chicken is about 25 minutes until cooked
fill and boil the kettle
once boiled, add the water to a LARGE/EXTRA LARGE saucepan and bring to a
gentle simmer (about medium/medium-high on gas)
add all yer veg
should now be about 15 minutes until chicken is cookered

This is the hardest part
Putting it all together at the last minute.
Take a deep breath and remember that...
if you fuck up... Even Pro Chef's with years of experience fuck up sunday
roasts sometimes, don't be too hard on yourself... if you want to learn,
it WILL take several attempts to get it right and perfect your own style
/technique

okay

when time is up for chicken, take chicken out of oven and place on
a chopping board to rest

once chicken is on chopping board, turn oven up to about 230-240 C
to crisp up the potatos in the last 10-15 minutes and give them a nice golden
brown crispy skin, (should probably re-baste them too with a big spoon)
brown crispy skin, (should probably re-baste them too with a big spoon
using the oil from the bottom of the roasting tin)
next...
remove the veg from the heat but LEAVE IN THE WATER
remove the gravy from the heat
remove the gravy from the heat and place saucepan on the side
get a sieve/collander (but not the one your going to use for the veg)
and sieve out all the veg/chunks from the gravy and let the gravy drip
into either a large wide surfa\ce jug or another saucepan to pour into a
jug once all the veg/chunks have been sieved/removed

10 or 15 minutes will have likely passed, carve the chicken
if you're not sure how to carve a chicken or it's too hot to handle
simply just "quarter" it
there are plenty of videos on youtube and other cooking websites
that will show you how to "quarter a chicken" ...
finally, sieve the veg from the water using a collander/sieve and
place back in the saucepan they came from

and VOILAH!
serve.
only thing left to do is pour gravy into a jug if it's in a saucepan.

I CANNOT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE A MODERN OVEN/4 RING/HOB
GAS COOKER TO SUCCESSFULLY COOK A ROAST AS WELL AS 2 ROASTING TINS
SUITABLE SIZE TO GO MIDDLE SHELF AND TOP SHELF OF YOUR GAS OVEN
AND 2 LARGE SAUCEPANS (1 FOR GRAVY, 1 FOR VEG)
AND 2 SIEVES/COLLANDERS (1 FOR GRAVY ONE FOR VEG)

I ALSO CANNOT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT ROAST DINNERS ARE DIFFICULT
AND TAKE EXPERIENCE AND COMMITMENT TO LEARN TO GET RIGHT OVER
SEVERAL ATTEMPTS.
