  1. Thank you everyone for all of the help. I gave her the information and we are both going to look into it in our towns. I'm also going to look into buying some online. I just need to make another EBay and Paypal account since it's probably been 7-18 years since I've used it. She hasn't seen her room yet. I think she will on Monday. She starts in 2 weeks so that deosnt give her a lot of time. Apparently she does get a small stipend but she has a lot she Needs for the classroom since she is expecting the furniture but not much else. She will need to supply anything else.
  2. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and she lives in Florida.
  3. I would love that if you have the time. It's been a long time since I had a 4th grader.
  4. My dd is a 2nd year teacher. Last year was pre-k but this year is 4th grade at a new school. She is trying to build her classroom library from scratch and doesn't get a stipend. It's a new classroom this year. The first year they will have 4th grade. I could absolutely kick myself for getting rid of all of our homeschooling books and many reading books. What was I thinking? We used to have so many books after homeschooling 14 years. All my kids are grown now 😢 Anyway money is tight for her and she moved out of state. I'm trying to figure out ways to help her. What wo
  5. I am so sorry for your loss. You and your son have been a true example of unrelenting faith. I pray that you feel God's warmth surround you as well as knowing how many people you have touched. We may not know you IRL but please know that so many of us are praying for you and thinking of you.
  6. I just wish that I could reset my 15 year old daughter's clock. No matter what we have tried it hasn't worked. For the past 3 months I have gotten her up at the same time (even on weekends) but it doesn't help. She still can't fall asleep until between 2 and 5 and wakes up several times during the night. So even waking her up at 9:00 am wasn't giving her enough sleep since she is really only sleeping for about half the time. About a week ago I gave up again and have been letting her "sleep" as late as she can. This doesn't always mean noon since we have activities, appointments, etc. tha
  7. I wish I knew since it has been over 2 years since my 15 year old daughter started with her severe insomnia. Nothing has been able to help her but here are a few suggestions that we were given. Maybe something will help you: Melatonin, Gaba, milk and a good snack before bed, plenty of exercise and fresh air during the day, blocking out artificial light before bed (no TV, computers, lights). We got special glasses that block out the blue light so that she could still see but that hasn't helped either. Using a light box first thing in the morning or getting outside as soon as possible.
