  5. I didn't in any way say you should only post on one forum, any more than you're saying you don't care about any of the other parents who could be intimidated. Again, I am clearly one person with one opinion (last time, I said, "I may be alone in this opinion"), but for what you described re age 8 math and 1st grade reading, the Accelerated Forum seems like the place for you to avoid the types of responses you said were getting.

I don't post on the younger boards, but if I notice such a post here, I will still always post comments about how learning earlier doesn't mean learning better. I have had a child who learned things "too early" by memorization,

I've posted here quite a bit over the years, even though I never even graduated my middle dd, she didn't do enough work (I will give her a diploma if she ever does a 4th English class, one of my minimum requirements, but she's a busy working single mother at age 27 -- a waitress who supports herself). I've enjoyed chiming in on superstar threads and saying, yes, this is great, but it isn't necessary for everyone. I hope if you see a need, you will feel free to do the same! I know it can feel like a tightrope at times, because folks who are in serious need of advanced curriculum don't
