Hi all,   Wondering if my 5 year old son is entitled to any financial benefits as a child of a parent with a mental illness.   Dad is bipolar (and is likely to be formally diagnosed with psychosis soon too).  However, dad is not a US citizen (he is a citizen of Canada and lives there as well) therefore cannot apply for disability here.   Are there any benefits or resources available for my son to assist since Dad is unable to contribute to the financial...
I am also using the website study guide. I haven't bought any books yet, since the few that are available received pretty poor customer reviews. I am taking the Elementary Subject Knowledge one. Hope your studies go well and you pass with flying colors!!!
Hi all! Have you passed the AEPA or studying for it now? I am gearing up to take it! Do you have any recommendations on books, websites, or other resources I should use to prepare? There is a ton of stuff out there, but wonder if you have a favorite you would recommend? Thanks in advance for the help! Renee

Hello Mommas, I've felt compelled to write about this for weeks, but finally getting around to it! I've been going to a new church in Queen Creek, AZ for a few months now and lovin' it! I wanted to write about it in case any of you are looking for a new experience on Friday nights... yes, it's on Friday nights! I personally love to start my weekend with a good message. The pastors are a husband and wife team and they are awesome! The weekly messages are always so...

He'll probably get the new grasp w/o any trouble when his fine motor...

I've noticed that my 8 yr old holds it the same way as me but I haven't bothered to say anything since her writing is fine. How funny that...
