  1. Curious if anyone has done the Dr,. Amen online ADD class? Just wondering if it would be anything new that we don't already know...
  2. Been following this thread since Thursday. Super curious to hear how it turned out.
  3. Custom Ink is amazing. You can do all the design set up yourself (their system is super easy to use) or they can help you. Best part is once everything is done, you send a link to all your people and they pay for their own shirts! Customer ink sends them all to you and you distribute.
  4. I drug test him for sure, immediately. If that comes up negative, he honestly just sounds like he has a bad case of Senioritis. I’d encourage the parents to offer him money or a trip somewhere, to finish. Honestly at this point he needs a carrot, not the stick. Some kids need to be enticed (ie dragged) to the finish line haha.
  5. I’m glad you are going to go. It’s important to take care of yourself too.
  6. I have a newer Bosch dishwasher and use the Costco tablets with no issues. I also use a rinse aid. We do not wash the dishes before they go with the dishwasher, the kids load them up, all grimy and gross haha.
  7. Can you put your 7 year old in a low back more compact booster instead of a high back? I’d put the 7 year old in a smaller booster in the 3rd row(side seat) with a teen or the 9 year old. 9 year old can help buckle the 7 year old. Put the 3 year old in the middle row. Take the 8th center seat out and store it. Then you have 1 seat in the back row open, one seat in the middle row open plus the passenger seat. My teens sometimes have to sit in the 3rd row and then either go through the middle (with 8th seat out) or just fold a captains chair forward.
  8. I don’t go to the doctor, or take my kid for any of those symptoms.
  9. I know that's a confusing title, lol. My youngest is 11. I feel like I've let him slip into watching too much tv at night. When my older kids were little, we watched tv on Thursday nights and a movie or two on the weekend. But he's literally watching tv every night and I don't like it. For example, tonight I'm sick and in bed and was just sort of ignoring what was happening downstairs. He's been watching tv since 6pm, so an hour and a half. My next oldest child is 17, so he doesn't have anyone to play with at night, like his siblings all did. He doesn't like sports, so no evening sport practices. He doesn't want to try anything new like a class or something (we just started working with a counselor to try and change this) He's reluctantly bridging from Cub Scouts in March, so he'll have a weekly Boy Scout meeting, and that will help a bit. So if you have an only child or a large age gap like we do, what does that child do in the evening? I'm starting to think I may give him homework or something lol.
  10. I’ve used it for various grades and kids during elementary and middle school. We only used Spelling, English, Cursive and occasionally Math. It filled in the gaps when I was overwhelmed. what about looking at Veritas Self Paced? My 5th grader is using it this year and absolutely love loves it.
  11. Cable girls Land girls Velvet When Calls the heart The 100 Jane the Virgin Designated Survivor (just finished this and it was soooo good) The 4400 Continum North and South Grand Hotel
  12. Duolingo app is seriously all we’ve used for 2 years. My 5th graders accent is near perfect and his comprehension is amazing. 15 min per day.
  13. Well it originally sounded like 2 opposite gender teen siblings sleeping in the same bed. Yes, I think that would raise some issues. It may be culturally appropriate in some places, but it’s definitely not common here. If anyone were to report it, I’d think they’d consider it cause for investigation.
  14. I wouldn’t be as concerned with them sleeping in the same room, as I would be about them in the same bed. And honestly, if CPS ever caught wind of that, it would probably raise some red flags.
