Oops. Reading your post again I see you did not say you homeschool. I guess I just assumed you did as this is the homeschooling forum and I do know French homeschoolers so it wouldn't strike me as...

Hi Gabrielle,
How do you like home schooling in the south of France? We lived in les Bouches-du-Rhône for 8 years but moved away to another part of France when DS was 3 so we didn't have much...

Freedom and flexibility are the biggest reasons. We can go visit my family in the U.S. and stay many weeks. We don't have bedtime battles or hectic mornings. We have lots of time to relax at home as...

The final third of this week's free podcast focuses on the democratic rule-making and discipline at a free school in Brooklyn. I thought it was very well done. The whole show is really worth...

Yeah the quality of the lessons isn't always that great. DS took a rollerskating class last summer and hated it almost immediately. I think he was off the rink within the first ten minutes. We went...

I agree 100% with everything Linda on the Move has said (and with some other pps too). I don't have a 12 year old but I've dealt with explosiveness and there are some similarities such as needing to...

No 3 is far too young, period. I question the judgement (and/or honesty) of PPs who have said they'd let her go.

I don't agree that a parent should never let the other travel internationally with...

Well I can see why you feel conflicted. I guess I wouldn't make a decision just yet, unless your DS1 decides he's done at some point. I wouldn't make him go if he doesn't want to, but wouldn't just...

I think age has a lot to do with it. I definitely wouldn't fret that she'll be a shopaholic. That can be an awful addiction but there's no reason to suspect that's what she's turning into. It's very...

Wow, NYC, I'm so excited for you! Somewhat isolated as homeschoolers here is a mild way of putting it. I can see why you want a really active area. I'm sure the regulations won't seem too bad,...
