His family was so proud of him being the first bear to graduate from Elementary School, they got him a bouncy bag for the party.

Even bears know that elementary school graduations are stupid.

Did you die before reaching eleven years of age? No? Congratulations, here's your diploma.

For chrissakes.

We celebrate "graduating" from elementary school? You know, if we are going to treat every single mundane life event as a way to artificially boost kids' selves esteem, the meaning of important events becomes diluted.

If everything is special, then nothing is special.

"Within minutes, officers cornered the animal at an apartment complex, hit it with a stun gun, and loaded it into a truck."

I've had to deal without a lot of bears in my line of work, but I'd never get close enough to beat it to death with a stun gun. That takes some serious balls.

Most of those kinds or rituals aren't exactly difficult to achieve in the slightest. The purpose is usually just to recognize the boundary between two stages of life.

So, it's not a "wow, look how awesome you are" kind of thing, it's a "you're life in changing, let's celebrate that" thing.

You could argue that there's not really a hell of a lot of difference between elementary school and middle school, but somewhere in there I think quite a biatchanges, in terms of how social interactions work and also in how much responsibility is put on the students.

Have to disagree. When kids are about to switch schools (a little bit scary and exciting) it's a good idea to honor that change. No caps and gowns, but a little ceremony acknowledging the kids are leaving a place they've been for the last 6-7 years is cool. They've been going to that school for half their life.

Self-esteem doesn't factor into this, acknowledging a milestone in their life does.

Milestone? I'd call it doing something that's expected of everyone. It's not special to do it, but you sure are a farkup if you don't.

And for saying so, you would be an excellent elementary school teacher.


A few years back, my wife and I were out to dinner with friends, of whom the lady was a teacher. She said her school was going to make it 'against policy' to allow a child to go home in the car with a parent who was smoking.

I told her if that happened I was going to get my wife pregnant that very night. And later take up smoking. And on the first day of first grade six years later I would show up to pick up my child from school while smoking a huge fat stogie. If they refused to give me my child, I would take a small puppy that I had rescued from the pound, and blow smoke in its face while in the car until they gave me my child. Then I would call the police and report a kidnapping.

I guess I should check if that policy ever got implemented.

So is turning 18, losing your first tooth, getting your first period (if female), and a dozen other things. I think you might need to look up the definition of milestone. It means "a significant point of development" not "a difficult accomplishment".

Sorry, I still disagree. Calling "graduating" from elementary significant is very snowflake-esque.
