  1. I’m so sorry. *hugs* Great drawing btw.
  2. I’m so sorry that happened to your grandma. Sending prayers. 🙏 Praying it’s not as serious as it sounds, she is comforted, and family is by her side in her time of need.
  3. Hi there! You may get more results if you post in the accelerated board. I would have to say that for math Beast Academy (elementary books from the Art of Problem Solving) is very challenging. I will say I didn't care for level 2 too much. At least not the first 2 books. I would have him listen to a ton of audio books while he plays with his legos. I think what you have for him is good as well. I think we all feel that way sometimes. If he's into chemistry, he may like Biochemistry literacy for kids. It's online. My son loves it. There are young kids in his classes too. Hope this helps.
  4. I'm so sorry. That does suck. I hope there is a better way soon.
  5. Hm. Good catch. Well, I agree with you on your first bullet point. Not sure about the second point.
  6. I would find out why they are getting more wrong than correct. Are the questions they are missing the review questions or the challenging questions? I already plan that if my son can do the review questions, but not the challenging questions to move forward. It is ok with me if he can’t do the challenging problems. You are correct in that AoPS prealgebra can be the next level after BA 5. AoPS is insanely hard and I don’t think it’s for everyone. If they are not getting it, then I would switch programs. There are plenty of math programs that has prealgebra. Math USee, Mr. D, dereck Owens, teaching Textbooks, and Principals of mathematics to name a few. you may want to look into math mammoth too. Other programs such as Jousting Armadillos and Jacob’s may have prealgebra. I can’t remember if they have both prealgebra and algebra. anyhow, I hope that helps.
  7. I’m sorry this is happening. All are good suggestions so far. Can she isolate in a hotel room? Perhaps spray Lysol every now and then? Won’t cure anything, but makes me feel better. Hope she doesn’t get Covid.
  8. I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope that your life gets better. It does sound like you have a lot of good things going for you, and I'm glad you have those things. I'm sorry I am not equipped to advise you. I don't know anything else except for look for a support group. People who have been through the same thing would be a great help for you.
  9. This is so true Rosie. I'm sorry for your hurt. You are a good human and worthy of love and respect!
  10. You feel like you have no self worth? Do you like where you are now? Sometimes thinking of the positive(s) outcome can be helpful. I was a bit bitter with my parents once for years because they wouldn't let me choose what profession I wanted to do. I had to be a pharmacist. That was it. That or hit the streets. But now, I look back and I am happy with the way my life has turned out. (Even though I didn't do anything with my biology.) I wouldn't be here if they hadn't insisted I become a pharmacist. I don't believe forgiveness happens overnight. It'll take time and healing. Perhaps a support group?
  11. I was in this situation once. Someone offended one of my daughters. She was 5 I believe. Made her cry that night. We approached said offender and said offender didn’t think she did anything wrong. For me, I prayed for the ability to forgive said offender. Also, I just tried to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Because the offender doesn’t think he or she did wrong or realizes how offensive he or she was, it may be repeated. At least that is what I think will happen. It can depend on the situation I guess. But my daughter was young enough where I could always be with her whenever said offender was around. Can’t now because she is 11, and we have moved to another state, so we aren’t around said offender anymore.
  12. Oh I’m so sorry. Like someone said go get tested. Another URI virus is going around. So it really could be nothing. Glad you and your parents are vaccinated. sending good thoughts and a prayer.
  13. No. I'm not going to ban you over this. This is not what moderators do. But it's not healthy to keep up that type of conversation. It is against the board rules to have the last word.
  14. I'm sorry to hear about your mom TexasProud. I hope she gets better.
  15. Spycar and TexasProud please stop talking to each other. No one has to have the last word. Just let it go.
