Amy, what do you recommend for grades 7-8 as Math Mammoth only goes up to grade 6? 
Amy hit the nail on the head with description. I apologize I wasn't able to do so well. Grammar and Math are my biggest concerns, and I found some suggestions for science and history on other threads. And I agree, I need to find something to iron out some strong writing skills.    Miranda: I adore Khan academy and my oldest's school recommends it for study help. We also use Study Island. Both are geared toward passing those standardized tests.    We are on a college...
Sorry. She is 12, and around about 6 or 7th grade, depending on what assessment. I used time4learning and I found it difficult to check out progress because when I had her redo lessons, it made duplicates and in no particular order. I found it hard just to figure out where she was. It took me longer to go through it's lessons to figure out exactly what she was supposed to learn than if I just did it myself.   I'm not sure my kid has gaps or is just overwhelmed going from...
Also, I don't care if it is secular or not. I don't even need lesson plans. I just want to make sure I hit all of the things necessary for this world of standardized testing.
I've been using a curriculum and I hate it. I would really prefer something with workbooks that I can just go through and teach each topic and move on once mastered. I don't care if it's secular or not, but I am prepping my kid to enroll in a college prep school in 2 years and I discovered some significant holes with the kidlet I just enrolled so I'm looking for something to make sure all of the major testing points are hit.   I'm sorry to post what may be a duplicate...
I'm looking for some books for a completely new dad to quickly get him up on natural pregnancy and birth, and attachment parenting. i've not been in the baby loop for a decade, so i don't even know where to start.
I'm about to purchase some Dermabond for the cracks in my hands. Anyone tried this? Liquid bandage won't hold and even when I tried reinforcing with the glue/tissue/glue epoxy mixture, the cracks open from where I repeatedly use these areas. I'm hoping Dermabond will hold better.
Anyone have any new revelations with this? I have all 7 forms of psoriasis and am managing my skin arthritis with olive oil soap and lotion (thantks to a Dr,. Drew segment, i heard this stuff is anti-inflammatory and am having alot of imrpovement). My problem is my nails and my joints and the spots that I have cracking open due to alot of use, ie: heal of right hand I use to push off of furniture, thumbs from texting, cooking, etc. I've done alot of holistics,...
I'm not worried about discussing it. We talk all the time. My question was, what do you do with a young teen who clearly wants to explore their sexuality and is seeking out porn? What appropriate avenue is there? I know coworkers who's son is in this stage and they know he's on the net looking at porn and they just let him go. I can't do that because rather than just surfing, my kidlet was cybering with 50+ men and giving out her full name and email to people. So...

You might not like the idea, but it might be worth it to get her a lockable journal and encourage her to write stuff for herself if language is how she is exploring her sexuality. Well we chit chatted...
