Movie of the Week: Varsity Blue

Here’s the pitch for the movie of the week

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin will be starring in their own Hallmark movie called Varsity Blues. The story is about two parents who planned their child life’s to go to their perfect school, but the parents never graduate from College (at least one of them), they orchestrated a plan how to pass the SAT or ACT to get perfect score, and pretend that they never participate in a sport or activities, by photoshopping their image on a picture. And their child will go to the school of their choice and get the experience of a lifetime and excellent education and a better career than their parents.  

Will this be a great movie of the week?

Eventually, it is based on a true story that came in the news lately. If Hollywood makes a movie about this, it will be interesting to watch.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were caught in a cheating scam of helping their child to get into an Ivy school. By bribing the proctors, college coaches, and executives, there’s a whole list of names who participated. By helping to give them the right answers for their son or daughter can be happy.

Sounds like good parents, do you think? It’s nice to see parents getting involved in their child’s education.  

Which is the same as the FBI operation mission – Varsity Blue. While the actors will be in the new season of Orange is the new Black.

This is a crazy story.

Parent’s can still help their children out. They can hire a coach or tutors who don’t give out the answer, but help the student out and guide them what to expect in an exam, and how to overcome trick questions that will appear on exams. They have to take the exams multiple times to get a good score if not, it’s not the end of the world.

They don’t have to go to an Ivy school a community-university is so much better, they can learn from professors who went to Ivy school themselves. They will tell you one thing:  Work hard and be smart. That’s the key to be successful in life.

Talk to your children, find out what they would like to do. Teach them how to be financially independent.  Sometimes high schools don’t teach the students how to be successful out of school. Practice your handwriting. Try to get a scholarship and try to get a job. Take a business course. If they take a business course as a major, that means whatever they choose they will know the business.

Acting and Singing is a business look at how actors get roles in movies. It’s a business. They study their craft, and they take classes and workshop.

Find something that your child likes to do take classes and workshop, and they will get a certificate of appreciation, and their hard work will improve and be recognized for their skills and talent. Learn from the best.

Your Children Future

Do you want to prepare your children for the future? How do you do it? First, let your children be children, and let them grow. But when they go to high school it’s time to be serious. They have to be prepared for the S.A.T test and pick the right college or university to further their education. They have skills. Can their skills change the future? Could they be the next president without the scandals they have in the past?

How would they survive? That’s the parent’s problem. Parents have to teach and train their child to be better than themselves. Parents make mistakes too. But the parents must teach their child to be a better person and smarter.

In high school, they must learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics or STEM; this applies to acting, business, and cooks.  And technology engineering companies. Engineering technology is a must and applies to everywhere, building computers, building the latest software and building much stuff to make our lives a better in the future. Movies influence us of what the future would look like. If we could make that in reality, it would be great. And they need a teen life too like going to prom and school activities.

What we have to do is to influence our children, it all starts with the parents. Teacher and professors are the resources and shape them to be a better person in the future. School and universities have laboratories and the latest technology they need to get ahead. Why blow up the garage and home, if it is insured.

Don’t start them late, or they end up in a garage forming a band that goes nowhere, or homeless.  They need a stable future and career.

It all starts at home and parents. Make that change.

 

Labor Day and Back to Work

So how’s was your labor day? Did you do any labor on Labor Day? Work is work and we need to get it done.

Anyway, you may know that school and universities were open a few weeks ago and they will learn new things and make friendship too.

Are the, teachers, college instructors, and universities professors ready for students to learn new things? Maybe?

For parents, please tell your children to learn and have fun. Making friends are crucial for the adolescent of children especially when they are growing up. But make sure it’s the right person when they bring home a new friend to be friends with. It’s like a date, but different, they have to find something common of what they like and dislike. If they are in the same classroom, make sure they are studying together and make good grades. Math and science are important for the children education, if they make good grades in math and science throughout the middle school and high school, it would be easier for them when they are off to college and universities and they have to take general courses and then their major of interest. So make them study.

For students who seniors in high school and getting ready to graduate at the end of the school year, they have been slacking off for the past two years of high school. It would be difficult to catch up and graduate with their classmates.

They have to work hard; they have to create a schedule for homework, school activities, prom, and a job. Students can take a break if they have good grades.

For teachers, college instructors, professors at universities and teacher of the year, please make your classroom entertaining to learn. Not the boring lecturing type. Do you want your students to fall asleep in classroom or take selfies the whole time while the instructors are lecturing? It’s time for an upgrade and change. Students are more active, if their instructors make learning fun, games like Who’s Wants to be Millionaire, Jeopardy and other popular game shows. Make learning fun. It’s great for College and universities students too. If they have cell phones make it part in their education. Make a deal with the students. Students like to be challenge, if not they will take more selfies of themselves. Try it and see how it works. Don’t be boring.

What is that?

Parents should know what their child should watch. For example, a child goes for a sleep over at their friend’s house. And the parents of that household suggest to go to the movies with their kids and someone else kid.

The parents of that child should be aware of the ratings of the movie. PG-13, PG and G are good, but movies that are rated R are not acceptable even though the adult is accompanying them in the theater and the movie is good.

Most movies these days are rated R due to graphic violence and salty language. Children who watch these movies grow up to mimic the actor’s behavior by killing and using language and other adults themes in the movie.

It doesn’t make sense that older parents are taking their child to see a rated R movies. Is this appropriate? We want to raise a child to be good and we exposed them to watch these movies either at home on DVDs and the movie theater.

We can blame Hollywood for making these movies, but parents have to make a choice either to watch it or not. Do parents understand the movie ratings? Some of the good movies are rated R, which include graphic violence and salty language they use on the screen. What do you think?
