  1. Whats that saying about arguing on the internet?
  2. oh im sure peace hill press is taking some profit too. Plus SWB has a fulltime job already. honestly, just think about it a minute. 3.99 for a lecture to help out the patrons to use her books. HarperCollins, and other book publishers are now offering free chapters online as supplements to garner more interest. I see this as just being a bit more greedy. Peace Hill Press and SWB would be wise to offer this lecture for free. IT will garner interest in her works and ultimately improve profits rather than appear as greedy, penny-pinchers.
  3. Oh i will vote with my wallet and not buy it. I just see her as trying to get an inch more when she already has a mile.... Hey its my opinion. You guys are free to have yours, this is the way I see it. Maybe because I have taught both high school and college, but I certainly was never paid for so much time and effort I put into my job. As an adjunct, we get paid peanuts. As a high school teacher, well we all know how this country treats public school teachers. Again why ask for a bit more from the same people that are shelling out hundreds for your other materials. To me, it sounds greedy, not trying to make a living.
  4. ugh 3.99 are you kidding me??? I seriously have an issue with SWB sometimes. I understand she has to make a living, but really honestly, alot of her work is just regurgitation of works that have been published and used for a hundred years. Like her book regarding classical education for yourself. Just a rewrite of how to read a book..... GIve this lecture away for free. We are buying your stuff already! PS. Im an academic, with a science PhD. SWB is an academic teaching at a college. Share your information. Its called a seminar.
  5. is this it?

  7. Why wait a few months to seek help? Go now. Its good to be under the advice of a professional when it comes to depression. Plus your son might be displaying signs of lack of motivation because you are not happy. Best to go get help now rather than wait.
  8. My DD is 5.5 (january birthday) and although technically set to start kindergarten in the fall, I believe she is ready for first grade work. Right now we are doing the following EZ Lessons MUS Primer ETC1 Handwriting (ZB Grade 1 book) FIAR DD will be done with EZ lessons by September then I think we will start the following: AAR1 Continue with ETC books SOTW and activity book WTM biology notebooking BFSU Unit studies (basically taking Nebel's ideas for each lesson and expanding into a 2-4 week unit of activities 2x per week). ZB cursive book. - though maybe I should look into prescript as suggested earlier? Probably will still do FIAR book studies as I have 3 other little ones below her :) Now DD really wants to write. She writes partial sentences all the time and verbally narrates stories to me all day long. I am thinking of starting her on ELL and WWE now rather than waiting until she is done with AAR1. What do y'all think?
  9. my foot hurts. I have plantar fascitis, and have orthotics, wear awesome shoes, but still by the end of the day they hurt and when I wake up in the morning, I feel as if I am 80 - my feet hurt so bad.
