dont have an 05 but had to respond b/c you're clueless. They haven't hit puberty or started checking yet - it's a different game a lot will change.
Have more than one playing. Stars were aligned funny in 2005, craziest parents ever. And yes, until they hit puberty and grow and find their own motivation, no idea how it will turn out. Sometimes kids change dramatically and the water bugs loose their shine as do the kids that were big first. Just support your player and instil a work ethic, see what happens.
I love the 05 threads! I cant believe there are some many idiot parents that far out of touch with reality. Keep it up guys, your all very entertaining!
