  1. She is hoping for a wide variety of people and she's especially short on children. The topic is perceptions of fairness and the survey should only take about 5 minutes. Here is the link. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VDZQFDB Thank you
  2. There's a huge price jump from the 2003 edition to the more current one (is it 2015 or 2016?). So what are the differences between the two?
  3. I have not read the book. But I do know of a naturopath that is curing many of these issues (ADD, Asperger's, OCD, anxiety etc) with mineral supplementation. That simple.
  4. Until I read this post, it had sort of slipped my mind that dd used to have echolalia. As a matter of fact, I have a couple of kids that used to be very quirky but are just normal teens now. I credit being home all those years with their development into pretty regular kids. Not saying it's any magical thing I did - they just had time to develop on their own without a lot of intervention and diagnoses. Sounds like she's doing great.
  5. My french spelling is rusty. Forgive me. 1) Tu aides l’environnement avec tes actions ? Parfois, mais la plupart du temps, non. (but she might want to reverse the first two words to make it a question. Aides-tu?) 2) Quand oui, comment ? Je débranch mes routeurs et mes téléphones chaque soir. 3) Tu veux aider plus l’environnement ? Oui. (again, this is a statement with a question mark - reverse and hyphenate the first two words to make it a question) 4) Tu sais que tablettes, ordinateurs et téléphones mobile a un grande rejets de co2 ? Non, je ne savais pas ça. 5) Maintenant que t
  6. I wonder why historical people are often viewed by modern idiots, as having been stupid.
  7. In french they're trombones, which is kind of fun.
  8. I've heard they have toxic heavy metals in them. I forget how this is harmful if you aren't licking the thing. ;) but maybe they off-gas or something. I know a naturopath that warns against them.
  9. Where I live, typically the only women who are SAHMs are either homeschooling or have preschoolers. There's almost a taboo about being any other kind of SAHer. It's viewed as unfair to the spouse as he would have to carry the financial burden single handedly and decrease his lifestyle. But the homeschool group is growing exponentially and these women are influencing others to re-think the double income lifestyle and replace it with something simpler whether or not they homeschool so I'm hopeful change is coming. I know that I was a very lonely SAHM for a while there - it seemed nobody else I
  10. I learned a lot of helpful weight loss tips from the program. I lost 15 lbs in 6 weeks(most of that in the first 3 weeks) and kept it off for months until I stopped the program. I didn't follow it to a T though. I do a whole foods version - I don't use artificial sweeteners but honey, maple sugar or syrup and coconut sugar and I don't use any weird processed ingredients like collagen, whey protein powder etc. It can be done with regular foods too. And it's not too complicated. Pick you protein then decide if you'll have veggies with it or high fat stuff. That's really the most important part o
  11. I've always been struck by the difference between the Ingall's farms and that of Almonzo's parents. And I think Caroline came from a successful family too, didn't she? Maybe he wanted a life like that and needed to find a better place to make it happen, which he never did.
  12. Haven't been around much now that my kids are in school, and I'm sure it's likely been discussed, but what is the difference between the SWB books Story of Science and Story of Western Science?
