    I read the link on parachute kids.

    There’s a lot of them in many cities and small towns throughout the country. The trend is still going on more or less.

    My family helped watch out for some of them, gave advice, hooked up part time jobs, invited them to meals and family gatherings, etc.

    We had two staying at our house, kids of friends of my mom’s. Not as fancy as the kids who got a whole house and car and all that, but similar. Also, I think some show like 60minutes came to my high school to do a piece on parachute kids. They started filming me and my friends until waved and said “Hey, what’s up?” and I distinctly remember the blond haired journalist lady rolling her eyes and shaking her head as she realized we were Asian American. Not the first or last time people were upset that I wasn’t as “foreign” as they wanted to be.

    “But after two semesters my dad asked me what I was doing taking general
    ed classes like math, history and philosophy. I thought you wanted to be
    an actor?”

    OK, I’m calling BS on this.

    lol I think his dad is British? I have no idea what British dads are inclined to do. ^O^ Maybe his dad was an actor, too.
