    Alison did not poison the daughters against HS.
    They did spend more time with Alison...they physically and emotionally saw her more.

    Is that what you know/think?
    ...or is that more of what she (..and certain others.) *wants* you to know/think?

    "Emily" is not so "typical".

    It is amusing that you mentioned Steven Spielberg.

    ....and exactly what do those three things have in common?

    THINK about it.
    ....because most people will not.

    The next generation of Stern.

    There are “certain people” where it is ingrained upon them to ensure that their offspring prosper and as a rule they do. Stern is disciplined and pragmatic enough to make sure that his kids are provided with a supportive and balanced childhood.

    He would throw your kids to the wolves but he’s going to make sure his kids have the tools they need.

    The youngest daughter told me that Alison did poison her against her father.


    Shit Winst, this is fun....I see why you make up all this bullshit pretending to know what is going on.

    Whats the old saying "anyone can be a father, but not everyone can be a dad" ?

    Howard's idea of a great dad was paying the bills bring home the "bacon". I'll give hime credit for that and not being a deadbeat, buuut something tells me after the divorce he had to pay big bucks for the child support. He always ripped on Gary for doing activities with his kids. Little league, sporting events, sleep overs on a boat. Gary once told the story how he took the boys and mary out to get a christmas tree, the ones that you chop down and drag to the front they wrap it and you take it home.

    While Gary was telling the story howie and stuttering john (another father of the year), were just dumb founded that someone would do that. Howie's idea of spending time with his kids is going to nobu.

    In the earlier days of the show did howard talk about doing activities with his daughters ?

    He did....sometimes.
    He was always very protective of revealing too much about the kids various activities etc.
    In their early teens....HS would shuttle them to Karate class in Port Washington on the weekends etc.

    HS also mentioned the large for it's time Toyota Land Cruiser that he got just so that
    the whole family could go out and around together on the weekends etc.
    They traveled out somewhere to pick up their dog Java.

    HS mentioned taking the kids to their summer camp each year.

    Alison "handled" most of the Hebrew school and Temple related activities.

    A side note on driving the daughters around.
    Alison took a special driving class.
    HS once had Alison's special driving skills put to the test. (..somewhat secretly...by not telling her ahead of time.)
    This happened right about the time that the film was coming out...in the winter of 1997.
    Alison never really knew it....but she passed the test.

    I wouldn't trust a word coming out of that one's mouth.

    It is a fact that both HS and Alison would each play "psychological" games with the girls.
    ...but most of that stuff was just for fun and laughs.
    They both got a kick out of putting the girls to the/a test.

    A good father would have seen them every day not twice a month for a few hours. He had the money, the chauffeur, and the limited work hours to do it and he had no excuse other than he didn't want to.

    My dad didn't call it a meeting whenever he talked to me.

    What’s a special driving class? What does this mean?

    Emily has actually has a handful of film credits on IMDB, but it ain't much. Sadly, she got her father's looks and her mother's brain.

    She was a typical bitter ex wife who poisoned her kids to the father


    Our society is so anti-male it’s ridiculous. Everything is the husband’s fault no matter what
