  1. My aspie is the same. I little lie: Me: Did you brush your teeth? Him: Yes. Me (seeing the moss growing on the surface): No you didn't. He doesn't have a violent bone in his body. Displays of anger make him significantly uncomfortable. He's never had a tantrum in his life. A sharp or fresh word - yes. My understanding is that Lanza was on the anti-psychotic Fanapt which is typically given to schizophrenics, so, yeah, this wasn't about being ASD.
  2. Like the signature line!

  3. saw your signature quote...you might enjoy this blog. I check it daily to see if it's time to lock myself into my shelter :-)

  4. You sound very capable and motivated. What a wonderful experience for both you and your parents. Good luck with your search and don't forget to post on the High School Board for advice. There are many experienced home schoolers over there willing to help.
  5. Did you see the F. alg sol'n manual posted on the for sale boards?

  6. Great question. My 12 yo ds is dyslexic; he's a rising 7th grader reading on or nearly on grade level. We attempted Latin for two years. While he completely understood how to apply the grammar rules, he had a very difficult time retaining the vocabulary. He needed a tremendous amout of drill from week to week to keep the vocabulary he had previously learned. We dropped Latin at the end of 5th grade. Because my husband and sons practice Aikido, they've had the opportunity to travel to Japan. Previously my dh has gone, and next year my ds will go with him. For the past 18 months or so, they've both been using Rosetta Stone Japanese. This has gone relatively well and has been fun and gentle. My intention is to continue this. A living language just feels more revelant and interesting. The prospect of traveling to and meeting folks who speak the language has sparked an interest in my son. The fact that he's sharing this with dh is more meaningful as well. My goal for my ds is a college education and, right now, I don't anticipate trying to get a waiver for the language requirement. Our community college offers courses in Japanese, so when he's old enough, I'd like him to attempt that. While I haven't BTDT, I do see it as a potential problem. Just my thoughts, YMMV, Stacy
  7. This is a fun thread, Stacy! I would rep you if I could :001_smile:
  8. I just began reading Atlas a couple of nights ago! Great post.

  9. Love your Ayn Rand reference in the auto bailout thread. You get a 10 for excellent use of subtlety! ( I think I spelled that right.)

  10. Or maybe two? :001_smile:

  11. You look like you could use a friend :001_smile:
