  1. ETA: SP is for after you learn phonics ....age 8+, oops. For under that, I'd use Logic of English, but not sure if the beginning level is formally out.
  2. We love Spelling Power. I review it in depth on Amazon under the 3rd edition. I use kalanamak on Amazon
  3. They all say "great" but don't discuss size, detail, examples, ages much.
  4. Like art history, earth science, the body, or the countries of WWII? Amazon has a bunch. What say ye?
  5. My other technique is to convince myself carrying this sorrow or unforgiveness or whatever is actually rather self-centered. That is always the icing on the cake for me.
  6. Simplify everything you can and then become Sarg. As in drill. X not done: no leaving for your Y class, sorry if you miss it. etc.
  7. In AA, you do what you can, and you do some sort of service if you can't. Was the person a Vet? Donate to the local VA hospital time or books or some such thing.
  8. Not a Christian, but I don't see why it wouldn't work for one: Making it right by anyone who was harmed. Vowing to do better in future. When I have a memory of something I did, I just remind myself I've done both of those things. If I can't stop the thoughts, I go into the bathroom, look in the mirror and say STOP THAT very sharply. Works for me.
  9. Word roots. I look at the spelling words, and pick a couple to put up and dissect. I used to do math, but now tend to use the Boogie board for it. If I know there is going to be a word in dictation or narration that is hard to spell, I might write it up and ask him to look at it before reading. Spelling rules. I use Spelling Power, and put up the rule for the list we are working on. I flesh it out (SP is brief on rules), and perhaps put up common exceptions. Chores, so he can check them off.
  10. And may be for weeks. When my father had pneumonia he said: Why didn't doctor tell me I'd feel awful for 6 weeks? Promise me you'll always warn your patients that this can last and you feel depressed and tired. So, plan on 6 weeks and be joyous if youth has its way! As long as his breathing is okay, let him sleep and hydrate him, and make the food simple, plain and easy to digest. I'd feed him in bed, and "freshen" the bed nearly every time he's up to pee. Nothing says love like a comfy bed to a sick child.
  11. How long they are covered for leak, seal breech, etc. How long the company has been around. I had some paving done, and the guy, I found out, regularly closes his business and starts up under another relative's name, so he doesn't have to be responsible for problems.
  12. I know a realtor who, when starting out, took anyone, and found out there are a lot of dreamers out there who love to gawk at house they don't have a snowball's chance of getting. I don't blame realtors for this rule. I got a letter from a financing place which said I was approved for XXXX dollars. After finding a house, I shopped around for financing and went with some one else.
  13. I voted boy because they are statistically (a little bit) more likely.
