  1. I don't wish to be rude by even asking this. Sometimes old threads are interesting and fun. But I just have a question -- is there a rule, policy, custom, or protocol for this? You'd think I'd know by now where the Hive Mind stands on the subject of zombie threads, but I don't.
  2. apparently...and this was news to me...it's now effective for boys too...gah!! Pharmaceutical companies are becoming predators :glare: That is all.
  3. This year our church is offering "prizes" (term used in the letter) for memory work and attendence. Every 5th week the kids will be asked to recite a memory verse they have learned over the previous month. This will earn them a ticket to be turned in for a prize. There will also be prizes given out for perfect attendance throughout the previous month, and at the end of the year a prize for perfect attendance (100%), excellent attendance (90%), and good attendance (80%). This church does not lack kids, but obviously they think there is a need for incentives to get them there on Su
  4. Is anyone else the poor sibling? One of my sisters is married. Her husband is some sort of vice president for a telecommunications company. They have no children. They have dogs. They live overseas in an island paradise. My other sister is a research scientist. She is married to a doctor. They have one son, who is five. They have already saved enough for his first year at Harvard. They make more than eight times what my husband makes. Then there's us. I stay home. My husband makes a modest salary. We are happy. But ... Whenever the sisters come to visit, they expect us to g
  5. What is the consensus on Math U See high school levels (with the Honors level questions)? Will it adequately prepare children for college if they choose the science/math route? Compared to Saxon math, does Math U See produce learners who understand the why behind math and can successfully solve algebraic problems? I wish there were more reviews for MUS since it was revised with the Honors questions. I love Mr. Demme's presentation of material but I fear under-preparing my children for college.
  6. Thought others might find this article from yesterday's NYTimes thought-provoking. We've already implemented the "testing as reinforcement" component in our homeschool, but hadn't heard about the "spaced repetition", which makes a lot of sense and wouldn't be too hard to put into place. Thoughts? Article here.
  7. Have you ever had someone say that to you? We just attended a party over the weekend and this guy kept saying it over and over again to DH and me. (We didn't even say that we homeschool, though we have for five years. He just put two and two together because we have a mutual friend that homeschools and he quickly realized that is how we knew the family.) I have actually heard that comment more times than the "What about the socialization" question everyone always talks/laughs about. I still don't understand that comment. In this case, it was coming from an 'older first time paren
  8. I've just gotten my 3rd postcard advertising a different online public school...it's free!...it's a research-based curriculum!...it slices and dices!:glare: I am sooo sick of all of these companies trying to entice me back into public school. I am also really alarmed, b/c I have had alot of people lately assume that we are doing public school online at home when I tell them we homeschool. It appears that the term "homeschool" means online school to many people now, and I fear that soon there won't be enough homeschoolers who are educating without a governement program to defend the movement
  9. How many of you moms get your infant's ears pierced? Dh wants us to do it to our newborn. I'm totally against it. He thinks most moms do it to their babies. I say no way. What says the Hive?:bigear:
  10. Ugh. DD 3 has had a UTI since 12/26. We took her to the ER on the 26th and she got an antibiotic. 10 days later we went back. Yet another UTI. More antibiotics. This time a 14 day course of antibiotics that still doesn't help. 4 days after finishing it we went to the pediatrician (Because we now recognize the symptom) and got another 10 day course of a new antibiotic that still doesn't help. Today, 4 days after finishing the last batch of meds, she's got the symptoms again and now it's a 20 day course of meds with a check at the 10 day mark, then 10 more days of meds, another check u
  11. I know you are all sick and tired of reading my harping about OPSEC (operational security) and giving out what is actually considered confidential, secure and/or classified information over the internet when "it's all over the news", so I thought I would take a moment to explain what it is I am talking about. I have been around this stuff for over 20 years. What we all "see in the news" seems, on the surface, to be very specific. It isn't. Here are some examples from the recent horrific disaster in Haiti: These are past tense events. All of the people are already on the grou
  12. This is what they said: Thank you for your interest in The Homeschool Lounge. It is with regret that we must decline your application at this time. If you think you've been declined in error, you can contact the administrator at administrator@thehomeschoollounge.com If your membership was declined it was most likely for one or more of the following reasons... • An incomplete profile, you did not fill out all of the required application questions. • You are not a Homeschool Mom, our site is for Homeschooling moms or soon to be Homeschooling moms only, no men allowed, we do
  13. This morning, dd woke up telling me that her foot hurt. When the time came for ballet, I told her she should go to observe, at the very least, as we are at recital time. However, if she decided to dance and her feet hurt, she should tell the teacher so that she could sit out and observe the class, so as not to lose the choreography. She has a male teacher who is just too complicated. I told her not to be afraid of him and to speak up, but to do it respectfully. Before class began, she walked up to him, said, "Hi, Mr. So-and-So. How are you?" and advised him of her foot situation. He ackno
  14. Has anyone heard about this? What do you think? I am having a very hard time deciding which side I agree with. Divorcing dad wants to take kids to Saudi Arabia Culture clash at root of Cincinnati custody fight BY DAN HORN • DHORN@ENQUIRER.COM • When Rima Shaheen and Talal Bawazir go to court later this month to resolve their divorce, they will fight over more than which school their four kids attend or which parent gets to take them to movies on weekends. Shaheen wants the kids to stay with her in Cincinnati, where they have lived for the past six years. Bawazir
  15. We're working on dd's bedroom now. I got a ceiling fan off of freecycle (yeah me!), but it's really ugly. I've taken off the blades and I'm spray painting them pink (they look SO cute!). I'm also going to replace the globes with something in pink gingham. Now, my question - the main fixture (that holds the motor) of the fan is brass. I really don't like brass! Can I spray paint it white? There are openings to the motor and I'm not sure I'll do damage to it or not. What do you think?
  16. Can I just ramble a bit? I really feel that the HS community has completely enabled itself to settle for for lower standards than we should. "Is it okay if we take off school this week even though we are 6 weeks behind? We just need to take a break." "Can my 10 year old do Core 1?" "My 10 year old is not writing, and is in 2nd grade math. Is that okay? " All of these are all too often met with a resounding YES! Yes! It's okay if you are behind. That's what homeschooling is for! You set your own pace! Yes, your 10 year old can do Core 1. You can supplement, but
  17. Let me start by saying I love this store and spend alot of time (and money) in it. :D In our local store, they have the Love and S*x section located directly outside the (only) bathroom....so when I'm coming out with my kids you see all those books. Now, I understand they are a bookstore and are going to sell them, and they have to put them somewhere...but is this where they are located in all B & N stores? My issue is that last night when we were coming out of the restrooms, one of the books was faced out (someone had pulled it out, not the store) and the picture on the front
  18. So we've delved into atheism quite a bit the past few weeks. As an atheist, I'm looking at this Ham person and thinking, "What the heck??" Since apparently neither side can prove to the satisfaction of the other side the age of the earth, does it matter to you whether the earth is 10,000 years old and was created in 6 days or not? Do you feel it makes the bible somehow less significant if science shows the earth to be older than that? Why does it matter?
  19. I just did an Internet seach for modest swimsuits and came across this Web site: http://www.modest-swimwear.net/index.htm What do you think about these suits? Are they too modest or weird-looking? I welcome any opinions, yay or nay. I'm on a quest to find modest swimming suits for myself and my daughter. I just cannot believe how skimpy the suits are this year -- even for little girls. I've seen little girls' bikinis with padded bra tops and suits that look like lingerie, for Pete's sake! Last summer we just wore regular 1-piece suits with swimming trunks over them. That way, w
  20. My kids and I drove to the airport to pick up my mom. It is located in a nearby community. I decided to go early because this town is also the major shopping hub of the region. While we were shopping at a warehouse grocery store something very strange happened to me. And it happened so fast I still can't believe it. I went into the store and left my two boys out in the vehicle (they didn't want to come in after the zillion other stops we made and I knew it was only going to be a few minutes). When I came out my son was in the parking lot cradling a little dog. That is not strange.
  21. Please help me get a grip. I am finding myself increasingly irritated and angry at my ds8. Here are the issues. He does an incredible amount of backtalking and complaining and arguing and explaining and badgering. He is a kid who tends to always think he knows more than he does and more than me and even if he does (know more than me) doesn't 'get' that he is 8 and I am his mother. Ugh. That description just made him sound like a beast of a child. He has many good points and I love love love him dearly, BUT for now I need to focus on these issues so I can get him under control.
  22. I had a conversation a couple years ago that I suddenly remembered and thought would be interesting to discuss here: It was with a distant in-law I had just met, who had homeschooled for years, and whose kids were grown. She had taken her kids out of school back when homeschooling wasn't as popular as it is now, and she was talking about how she started the first homeschool support group in her town, etc. She said, "It was interesting, though ... as I began to meet with other homeschooling families, it became clear there were two different groups: the Real Homeschoolers, and the I
  23. She is very advanced, and is asking a lot that I didn't expect yet! She accepted Christ at age 3, and is now asking questions like, "What if I'm not really a Christian, What if it's all just stories, How do we know our religion is the right one, What if there is no Heaven?", etc. She is not just asking questions, she is really experiencing angst over this. It is such a glorious opportunity though! And I told her it is very normal to have all these questions, and finding the answers will help build her faith, and that is a necessary process that most people go through. The communication is
  24. Let me start off by saying that DD is 14 years old and we don't have extra money. Typical scenario: I take her and one of her friends to the mall. I give her some cash to buy whatever she needs (clothes, usually, plus a snack & a drink). Say I give her $40, and I expect her to buy a shirt and a pair of flip-flops. She will spend at least half of her money to buy something for her friend. For example, she will buy 2 shirts, one for herself and one for her friend. Suddenly, the flip-flops which were of supreme importance before we went to the mall are not important now. She
  25. A friend's toddler has MRSA. Said toddler was at my house while the rash was active (still is--she's on antibiotics now). The rash was bandaged up at the time. I vaguely recall reading really scary things about MRSA and am feeling a little panicked. We are going backpacking in the boundary waters shortly and I fear a crisis. I will google and try to figure this out, but wanted to also turn to the Hive for your wisdom. What can you tell me about MRSA?
