sending private messages

I am trying to send a pm and it says sent successfully, but then it's just in my outbox. When I check sent messages, it's not there. Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Organization / How much do you keep?

I keep the notebooks and their writings (final copy if it's rewritten, etc), drawings. I toss all English, math, dictation. The projects are all tossed. I have quite a few grown children that I homeschooled as well and the only thing I like about their old work is looking through their writings and ...

Re: Are we behind, is this enough?

If you are only in unit 10 of Beyond and you feel he places in Bigger now, I would switch him to Bigger. You didn't say what your younger one is doing, but it seems like if you have that one in Little Hearts and the older in Bigger it would be a good spread. That would be a huge jump in Singapore. I...

Re: Need Help/ Ideas - Resurrection- Reformation

Just answering questions is a lot easier in some ways than doing things the CM way. Doing the activities and narrations, etc, requires more out them, requires them to really think about and interact and decide things on their own. It's easier to read the question and search the text for it if you do...

Re: Decided to combine 2 kids - what does your day look like

That's great that your younger 2 are excited. What's really great is that they know what you are talking about since they've been doing the guides. They know what they are getting into. I know what you mean about your youngest being on her own too much. Last year my 13 yo in CTC was pretty much alwa...

Re: Decided to combine 2 kids - what does your day look like

I'm glad you are slowing down your oldest. (I think you meant to say that she is on the youngest end of the range?) That is a long time for a 10 yo to spend. What about having her slow to 1/2 speed. That would give her time to really focus on the things that take her longer to do or that she wants t...

Re: Horrified by "homeschooled Kids" behavior at CoOp event

I think that all of us with cave to peer pressure at different times, no matter how much "training" or character building we have done. Sometimes, if they are not needing to practice that training much and are always is controlled areas, they will fail easily and maybe many times. But, that is a gre...

Re: Decided to combine 2 kids - what does your day look like

I've always wondered how you were able to do it with the work schedule and the school and the house and the meals and... We sure have a lot on our plates, don't we? I've been wondering why I can't do it all and thinking I need to just work harder, because others do it! :) Having this board is so enc...

Re: Putting My Oldest in School

Thanks for sharing with us Lora Beth! All of these decisions with our children are so multifaceted aren't they? Tough things. It will be really different after so many years of not having any in school. You are not being selfish at all to think about how it will affect you! It's huge. It's so hard t...

Re: no thinking skills in math-want to give up :)

Thanks for those tips Julie. I understand what you are saying, about working with them. I do work with her. When is it that they are actually doing the problems though? So many problems I try to help her think things through and give examples or whatever--and have worked other problems with her--but...

Re: no thinking skills in math-want to give up :)

Hope, thank you so much for the encouragement. It helps to hear some of those things sometimes! I only see failures. :) I was just looking through another math curriculum that I have on my shelf from years ago. It's grade 7, and she is just about done with 4B. There are only a couple of things in th...
