  1. Ugh i do not have good habits mostly! i have been storing all the reusable shopping bags in my car. Does that count? and we basically always start school at 9 no matter what other mess is around
  2. Yeah I don’t know the ins and outs but dh commented that she looked middle eastern at the beginning of the movie and white by the end of it. Again apologies if that is the wrong description. I am seriously ignorant about some of this stuff!
  3. I had a Facebook friend recommendation for someone I had been talking about an hour ago again the other day. It’s not the first time and it’s someone who was an extremely remote friend. Either Facebook heard the name or knew I was in the same location as the connection and recommended the friend based on that.
  4. Also now I’m wondering if people found the Aladdin movie racist? The white actress who plays the princess is made up to look more middle eastern (now I’m questioning if that is the right term?).
  5. I had no idea it was a thing or an offensive one. I grew up without much diversity and with a bit of racism so I do totally understand doing stuff like that and not realising till your older that it’s not ok. I still feel like I’ve got no idea and probably say offensive stuff. Not saying this is necessarily the case for Trudeau just that it is possible for people to change a lot in 20 years.
  6. Interesting questions. I guess it may depend what you’re doing it for as well. We are mostly going for vocabulary exposure and familiarity so grammar is not a top priority. We use Picta dicta at the moment which has no grammar yet just vocabulary and stories.
  7. Just thought I’d share as this is a resources we use (and paid for) and is currently free at home school giveaways hope it’s ok to share here You do have to sign up for their emails but I guess you can unsubscribe if they’re annoying
  8. I ticked no are you out of your mind? But I don’t really quite think that. We live in a fire risk area so for 7 months of the year I won’t leave someone here without a vehicle and licensed driver. And I won’t babysit more kids than I can safely relocate unless the weather makes it really safe. i also wouldn’t be leaving my particular kid for that length of time yet but I do get different kids and circumstances

    I think that’s because someone’s religion doesn’t feel like a moral judgment on everyone else. Whereas making a judgment call outside of religion does
  10. I wonder if it would be more effective to make a laminated chore chart with the daily stuff they need to do. Then anytime a kids Mucking around you send them back to the chart until it’s all checked off.
  11. I made a tally chart of each time they complained one day when it was really getting to me. They were kind of stunned at how many times there were in an hour and then started making up silly complaints to try to increase the score. It did work. was it petty? Maybe but nowhere near as petty as some things they were complaining about!
  12. Oh I see i thought you were saying the pill and no impact on birth rate and was like wha?! This thread has taken too many twists and turns for me to follow now
  13. I guess an ideal eventually has to be stability otherwise you eventually have suffering for the older generation. And endless growth is not sustainable.
  14. No not at all but the poster I was replying to seemed to be saying there wasnt i may have misunderstood though
  15. I don’t think we’re undermining the contribution of anyone who is raising kids? I don’t see anywhere someone said anything specifically about birthing them. We’re also not saying anyone is not contributing just saying that raising kids is a significant effort that is sometimes undervalued in our society. anyway we are a million miles from the original topic so maybe time for a new thread.
