My mom was a 5th grade teacher for 18 years. She was my biggest cheerleader in my decision to homeschool.

Interesting story about my name. I arrived at MB in 07 and registered as DisgustedWife because I had found my then husband involved in texting a friend's wife. I busted that up and went to work trying to 'fix' my marriage..someone...it might have been LousyGolfer, or LA, suggested that I change my name to reflect a more gentle spirit toward my husband. So I changed it to SeekingWife. Then 2 years later I put a keylogger on his computer and discovered the affair...I was afraid he would find my snooping threads so I got a new ID....I remember the night I had to come up with one. I was at the library using their computer....I remember the total relief I felt that night that I was NOT crazy....and I was Smiling. I knew I was NOT gonna be his wife for long... Thus SmilingWoman. I had a rough year or so but truly I am still Smiling and now I'm a wife again too.

Speaking of the Queen she is doing a smackdown on a poor poster over there right now.(divorcing board--on a thread about children of divorce) Once she starts in on someone everyone else knows to stay the heck away unless they totally agree with her. Really scary.

My mom was a 5th grade teacher for 18 years. She was my biggest cheerleader in my decision to homeschool.
My favorite principal (Mrs. G), who retired last year, confided to me that she is encouraging her daughter to homeschool her youngest child. Mrs. G said that public education has forgotten that children are kids and not test-takers.

I'll join the homeschooling group, even though I've never done it. But I did teach both of my sons to read before they went to school.

Now I'm going to be working with my littlest girl, since she loves to read. My sons never became interested in doing a lot of reading.

I do have a problem with the stuff the teacher sends home for our kindergartner. It is much too easy for her.

Susan Wise Bauer writes in her book 'The Well Trained Mind' that it was noted that the main difference between kids who had been homeschooled and kids who had always been public schooled is that the homeschoolers don't know how to stand in line. smile

I've made sure to teach my ds12 how to properly stand in a line.

The problem with your K'er is why I homeschool. My ds was reading by 4 and probably 2nd grade math...I will never forget he was 4 years old and we were in Wal-Mart, standing in the check out line (ha!) when I saw him quietly and busily counting on all his fingers, stopping, nodding his head to himself and counting some more. I watched him until he seemed satisfied with whatever he had calculated and then I said, 'whatcha doing son?' He says, 'Oh I was just making sure that 3 threes is 9.' I about fell over. Multiplication!

So then I got serious about my decision. I looked at the standards for public school in my state and realized he was already doing 2nd grade work at age 4. What would be thepoint of putting him in K? And I didn't want to advance him because although he was/is very smart he is also still just the age he is maturity wise.

It has worked well for us. I highly recommend it to all but the worst parents. smile

DQ.

For Drama Queen.

She starts drama, she ends drama, and makes drama allll the way in between.


Just think about how that board would be without DQ. No drama.

By "ending drama", I mean she gives others the boot. Which, in a way, starts a new kind of drama.

My poor friend who just got a divorce from the atheist....he told her he is dating someone and is going to introduce the kids to her this weekend. She is having a REALLY tough time with this. I feel so bad for her.

My worst day...by far...was when I realized XH was going to introduce our son to the OW. It was after the divorce...but I remember the sheer gut wrenching grief I felt.

That is not unusual. You say good things, so don't be surprised if folks agree with you.

It just is, since you can still post, that the next time you get edited, will be your last.

And you will be gone.

Finding an ethical way to deal with pain, fear, disappointment etc..is part of the experience of becoming a stronger person...one who is driven by compassion instead of compulsion...ie I have a legitimate reason to be stressed out right now...however, my response to it will determine how others percieve me, and myself.

I am sure you are correct. I don't know why I even hang around there. There is a poster on 101 right now that I really feel for....her husband is acting Craaazy and most of what she is being told is 'well, he is probably just fed up with your mouth.'

As one who lived in crazy for way too many years I can tell you that crazy actions on his part often escalated as I became less vocal. It was almost as if he kept going until he could get a reaction out of me and then have an excuse to fight with me or leave the house or both. I think he often set those situations up so he could easily escape to go do whatever and I would be in no mood or position to question him.

But I didn't dare say too much on her thread....

I am a teacher, but I helped a friend homeschool her son for four years. She said high school math was over her head, so I took that part of instruction and loved it. I also did standardized testing for some local homeschoolers and enjoyed helping them with that.

I taught in a small private school for a year and had one class of three for algebra and a class of six for geometry. It was heavenly, except for the pay.
