The moms in this community are awesome so I'm sure you've gotten great suggestions, even though I haven't read any of the responses yet . However, I did want to share this web site with all those who are interested because I like the way in which they tackle the subject. There are printable books, coloring pages and they cover other important safety topics. http://www.keepyourchildsafe.org/kids_page.asp   HTH  
This is different because in your case, you know the motive. The issue is that Dee keeps pushing the issue. If it were us, we'd wait until (when/if) we felt comfortable with it.  
  I think you are totally right. According to what you posted above, if your K child's still 5 from Sept-Dec of that calendar year, K's not mandatory for him.   Have you tried joining any local homeschooling yahoo groups?http://groups.yahoo.com/
By 4th grade, probably the majority of the kids know that Santa’s not real. But, I’m sure there are some kids that might still believe.   I haven’t been in your position because I’ve always made it clear to our kids that Santa isn’t real. However, I’ve also let my kids know that sometimes it’s fun to pretend that he’s real (also the tooth fairy) and that they could pretend if they like. They also know that there might be other kids who believe he’s real and that...
I'm definitely NOT pregnant, but congrats to all of you. I just read this on the new posts and it caught my eye. But I did want to share that when my areolas (oops, that's what i get for sleep posting) got dark as dark can be and bigger..... I had my son! So, perhaps, just perhaps, this time it's a boy for you, buddhamom. And with that comment, I'll quickly bow out of here before I catch baby fever!
Quote:      Is it negligence on the parents' side if the child is exposed to this language/content by their peers at school? or from another child at Karate class,  or overhearing the neighborhood teens, or at a friend's house, etc.? Remember the law actually allows a parent to decide whether their under 17 yr. old child should watch an R rated movie or not. So if other parents expose their children to R rated content, then those children can easily pass on this info to...

Something is going on with these kids that they are exposed (not necessarily abused, but exposed) to these kinds of things. Where are the parents? All it takes is a few unsupervised minutes for a child to turn on a cable channel, to stumble upon an adults laptop, youtube, google search, read...
Quote: Originally Posted by PoppyMama I'm going to be the odd man out and say that this isn't outside the realm of normal. I remember lots of sex talk in school starting at about third grade. Kids mature at different rates and there is a range of "normal" when talking about sexual interest. I would go to the school with the angle of it being inappropriate instead of abnormal. Things can be inappropriate without the people doing them being abnormal or...
Another one here who finds sex better post-birth (2 vaginal) than pre. I was too tight for my own pleasure. I just wish the rest of me (abs, rear, etc.) remained in the prebirth condition, ah, such is life.
Ditto what everyone else has suggested (online games, skip counting songs, etc.) Here are a few more ideas; Printable games/puzzles http://superteacherworksheets.com/multiplication.html Use hundreds charts. Print out a filled chart for each factor. Say you're doing the 6 times tables, have your dd color in every 6th number (6, 12, 18, etc.). Then you can discuss any noticeable patterns. http://donnayoung.org/math/100-number.htm List of math literature for...
