|How do you all handle violence in movies?
Well, when we look into movies, if something is going to be scary or graphic I talk to the kids about it first so they know what to expect and can better decide if they want to see it or not. They each have their own limits regarding violence, and it depends on how graphic the scenes are, if the characters are "real" or fantasy, etc. etc.
RasJane, The "are you done with school?" questions are sort of annoying to me because I don't want to just say, "Yes" but I can't say "No" because then that leads to questions about our schedule, and just leads people to believe I have them sitting at the table with dittos all summer. I've taken to joking a bit by saying, "We homeschool, so depending on how you look at it, they're either ALWAYS in school, or NEVER." Then I change the subject.
Unschoolnma, we were babysitting today too--a 6 y/o and 9 y/o. I don't think I have any clean dishes left...there are sofa cushion forts all over the living room, chalk drawings all over the porch, forgotten articles of clothing everywhere...it was a good day, only two minor injuries and one lost (but later found) shoe in the lake,
no tears, everyone had fun, and now I need a nap!
