Help me help my daughter do her homework

They read some book in Lit class that included spousal abuse and then a woman looking for a new love. Monday she needs a cd with a song about both that apply to the book.

Today she had a band competition 100 miles away that kept her busy, tomorrow she has musical practice for 6 hours followed by the end of year pom banquet... so basically she has no time. Naturally she's asking me for help and to burn a couple cd's for her tomorrow. Here's what I've suggested...

Spousal abuse songs
Nickleback- Never Again (too mean)
Martina McBride- Independence Day (more about child abuse)

Woman looking for a new love
Sara Evans- No Place That Far (Doesn't fit according to her)

So my job is to find songs to fit her assignment and burn cd's tomorrow (today). I'm likely going to miss most football due to this unless I get some input. Give me what you got.

Serious suggestions are really appreciated.

Saw those and suggested I Will Survive also. The prob I see is they're songs not about the abuse or finding new love, but the joy/freedom/empowerment they feel, which I think is a more important feeling and common theme than actually finding that next love. Rilo Kiley - Silver Lining is another good song that fits that theme.

Rilo Kiley "Silver Lining" from Miky Wolf on Vimeo.



There's gotta be a better fit, but Death Cab For Cutie - You're Heart Is An Empty Room is about the feeling of being single, feeling alone, but knowing it's better than being where you were. Written by a man though.

"Out on the street
Are so many possibilities
To not be alone
...
The flames and smoke climbed out of every window
And disappeared with everything that you held dear
And you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn't need
'Cause you knew you were finally free"

Abuse song: White Knuckles by Elvis Costello (he has a ton more but this one is probably one of the most obvious ones)

Huh, that seems like an odd homework assignment. And I don't think I'm going to be any help at all.

While this song is more about her mother telling her to be true to herself, it portrays a girl that's been in bad relationships and hopes that this is the one.

I learned a long time ago that you can't do it all. As educated as my wife and I are, and surrounded by folks in our lives who are equally as educated, it's still tough. I'm a network engineer by trade, my wife's a middle school math "coach" (district level math strategy type and teaches teachers how to teach better), and she has a major in English too (!!!!), and it's still tough helping a high schooler who takes four AP/IB classes in one year. Add to that he's on the tennis team, in the band AND deeply involved in Robotics and your parental head can explode when you travel like I do. At some point we all need to get over ourselves and think outside the box when you're blessed with kids like these, I know I did. I'll do anything and everything to help them because they are better than me, and that's all I've ever really wanted. Sheesh, mine just left in MY truck to go airerate lawns....a full-on business run by the high school robotics team to afford all the parts they want to build backup robots and travel money. Yeah, these kids are AWESOME!

This may not help in the short term but one thing I've found works REALLY well is to spend time finding local college kids for tutoring. I had an intern who worked for me, she was smart as a whip, nice and late for an upgrade one night because she was toutoring and forgot!!! I was mad, but it turned out to be a good thing! These college kids are SMART, so go get the smartest of the smart for your kids. Not an add on the cork-board in a dorm, but a call or email to the head of the respective department at the college and ask if they have any kids they'd recommend for tutoring any specific class/discipline. They come at the right price, it give the college kid a skill they probably need, and because of the age of the kids, it's easy for the college kid to relate. Find one in athletics and I'll bet you'll find somebody who wasn't always a whiz at everything and understands schedules that aren't set! In my case I was talking about it at a F2F in Dallas two years ago with some of the folks work for me and were thinking the Cumon and Sylvan were pricy (and they are!), and many have tried it. In one case, not only did her son's grade go up by two letter grades in six weeks (C-to-A), he also went from not liking math to loving it. Plus, he got into all the NDSU games he ever wanted to, of any discipline, because the tutor was a student athlete. Bonus them when your kid succeeds and they'll work even harder after that... Once she graduated, she set him up with his next tutor (at $15 an hour once or twice a week, why stop). I've done it here too, and some other who work for me have done it in Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, St. Louis, and soon in San Antonio. While some didn't get that two letter grade jump, none found it to be a bad deal either.

So, in short, if you can get through the short term, look to the local colleges if the need continues...

GloryDayz out....

Usually with these "novel soundtracks" they also do an accompanying paper/essay that explains the thematic tie-ins to the book. I'm worried that she's going to be in trouble if you just burn all these songs onto a disc, and she has no idea what the songs say or anything. I mean, I doubt the teacher is going to think that your daughter knows who The Vandals are.
