  1. I have been playing GrabbyWord for years now. It's the same concept as Scrabble, but the points system is different. You get to steal points from your opponent if you alter a word, which makes it more challenging and fun. If you'd like to play, @klmama, my username on GrabbyWord is chooky.
  2. Thank you all for your suggestions. Some of these she has already read, and others sound perfect and are now ordered. Thank you 🌻
  3. My 14yr old daughter loves to read non-fiction in her spare time. She's keen on psychology, anthropology and music psychology. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you 🌻
  4. Yes, absolutely this. We have been brainstorming about the potential suitors or suitresses aspect. I'm not really concerned about the drinking thing, as I expect the self-assured part of her will manage that just fine. I don't think I have my head in the sand on this, but I'll keep my eyes wide open, as the majority of her peers will be of legal drinking age and there are bars on campus, as far as I know.
  5. Thank you all for your replies. Our whole system here is quite different, so the idea of doing college classes while still technically a highschool student is foreign to me (pardon the pun πŸ˜‰). Actually, that's not entirely true. Highschool seniors here can access some limited options of first-year university classes, in some exceptional circumstances, but only as a standard school student. This option isn't open to homeschooled students. Not in my state, anyway. Executive function skills are not a concern at all for us, luckily. We're also VERY lucky when it comes to Covid he
  6. @SeaConquest Hello! If I remember correctly, your two boys are younger than my daughter. How are they going? I hope I haven't got you mixed up with someone else, but were you studying nursing? If so, I hope it has all gone well.
  7. It's been a while since I've posted here, but I was a regular for many years, posting about my ups and downs with my homeschooled accelerated learner. Well, my daughter has now officially finished highschool and has been accepted into university. She's 14. I'm hoping that some of you can offer some advice or share some experiences about your children who started uni at a young age. She'll be living at home and we'll be commuting in together, most likely with me on campus somewhere while she's in classes. There are a few things that the uni has put in place for her, which are al
  8. @lindens I think I can relate to some of your story. Perhaps some parts of this thread may be helpful. I chimed in part-way through, with some things I used with my accelerated daughter when she was younger and a reluctant writer.
  9. If I had millions of peaches, I'd be singing 🎢🎢 πŸ˜„
  10. Thank you, @Kareni 🌼 It's so lovely of you to think of us πŸ™‚ My Korean learner is still only 14, so I will check out the content - thank you for the heads up.
  11. That's an interesting idea. I'll ask her if she's keen to try that. Thank you for the suggestion. Can you believe that she has never read HP in English? Your son would certainly be appalled!
  12. Oh yes, K-dramas. My daughter watches those. She started off by watching them with English subtitles. Then she moved on to watching them with Korean subtitles, as she found having the written Korean was helpful for fast dialogue. Now she translates in real time for her sister, with no subtitles πŸ™‚ Also, K-pop is a big deal in our household, and it is very helpful to have a resident translator for us all πŸ‘
  13. Thank you. That's very useful advice. Much appreciated πŸ™‚
