Academically, I don't know what kindergarten is going to do for her, since their goals for the year are to get kids started on reading and numbers, and Athena already reads and can add and subtract.I realize I'm in an extreme minority here, but I have to say I'm pretty much totally unconcerned about Athena pulling up something objectionable on the Internet, and as for viewing something inappropriate, I think if she did her first reaction would simply to be to ask what it is that she's viewing.Athena knows from us that there are some things that she as a kid isn't supposed to be viewing -- that there's an adult world and a kid's world, and when we tell her something is for adults, she usually gets it.The user also reportedly said on 4chan that staff at the Metropolitan Correctional Facility in Lower Manhattan attempted to revive Epstein for 40 minutes before he was transferred to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
