I thought those videos communicated the idea of not hitting your kids very persuasively. Quicker than reading books or the studies that are available.

I could also recommend "Why  Love Matters" by Sue Gehrhardt - - worth reading the book reviews.

Glenn Doman's book and the subsequent amazing results with my boy inspired a ton respect for babies, and after that it would be impossible to hit them, with or without a paddle.

I was just surprised to see such a comment on this forum, where other parents have been through similar experiences with their kids.

We are in Sweden too...near Göteborg. I am from the UK, and my wife is Swedish. We are interested in homeschooling (so might have to emigrate in 3 years!)

We have really enjoyed early learning with our eldest and are trying to find some time with our youngest.

I'm really happy to have found Glen Doman's books at an early stage, for the respect it inspires in a parent for his kids.
Recently I have found a lecture series on philosophical parenting ( which has been hugely positive.

Best wishes

3  BEYOND EARLY LEARNING (for older years) / General Discussions - After Early Learning / Re: Overall education- Acceleration vs Depth on: December 27, 2012, 03:49:07 PM
I appreciate your perspective. I do spank when kids are little - I don't see that as a problem, but there are some who might. We stop spanking on the 5th birthday as the child is no longer a toddler and spankings are for toddlers who don't know any better. Our goal is to be spanking free by 5 and burn the spanking paddle (my oldest kept his). Other than a few minor bumps in the road we do not have the teen problem in our home that many of my friends experience. I would say that is true for most of the home schooled families I know. Of my three sisters, two of them have very few teen problems. Neither of them started home schooling their kids until they were older.  One of them has a lot of problems but everyone around her can tell you why she is having problems also.

I will agree that my son has what we call "mental blips". There are times when you have to give him information 3 or four times before it registers. But that is not rebellion - that may be a brain thing and I should probably extend more grace than I do in those situations.  When I say, "Go to the store and get some milk, cheese, and stuff for a salad." Then he goes to the store and gets nothing and comes back because he forgot EVERYTHING - I will buy that we have to develop strategies for dealing with that and we have. But that is not the same as "Yeah right, go get it yourself." Which my friends have experienced and much, much worse. And while my son hasn't been spanked since he was 4, I assure you that if he did speak to me that way he would scraping his lips off the wall.  yes

Your comment made me want to cry, and I really don't cry easily. I saw this and I couldn't not comment.  If you can spare 15 minutes please see if any of these are of interest to you

I first gave Kumon Wipeable letters to W when he was about 22 months.  I made sure he held the pen properly and  showed him how to do it.  Writnig quickly became his favorite activity ... now it has competition from typing.

Now he is approaching 26 months.

He has completed the Kumon lowercase work book, and done most of the simple sentances workbook. He loves writing in the peter and jane books (keywords) 1c, 2c and 3c.and rubbing them out and doing it again. He picked up 9c today. Any book that has a space or him to write his name in, he has to do it.. can hardly contain himself.

He can write a few words without me spelling them, like his name, milk, mamma, etc

for quite some time all he wanted me to do was print out dashed letters so he could trace over them

I bought his cards, they are excellent.

How about instead of saying things like "good job" , surprise her by saying "good potato" or other silly things.  (sorry for the cliche example!)

My son is quite a bit younger, but here's my tuppence worth .... I've been printing out text in a light coloured or dashed font and my son has really enjoyed writing over the top of it. I just put a video on my blog yesterday.

14  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: First readers, big print sight words? on: March 23, 2012, 07:46:07 PM
The Peter and Jane Keywords boxset (Here on Amazon UK<img src="" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />) is good ... very repetitive.. but nice clear text and it builds confidence as the book goes along because of all the repetitions.

W is really in to writing at the moment .. so the book C in the set where you get to fill in some gaps appeals to him.

15  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: First readers, big print sight words? on: March 22, 2012, 08:11:54 PM
I bought those easy readers level 1,2 and 3.  My boy likes most of them... especially sharing day ... its the suspense before she guesses correctly that it's a flute !  It's not unusual to read through 10 or more of them before bed.

The best thing about them is how handy they are.. they are quite small books, so you can easily take them anywhere.

On the downside  they are a bit dull (to me more than my boy) and the text is facing the pictures rather than being on its own page... i.e. competing for the child's attention.

I have a spiral binder and each holiday or event that comes up, i make a book on the computer and bind it. It takes about 40 mins to arrange the photos and text, but they are well liked.  I've also photographed and typed out a couple of books , but it took too long.

Books by Stephanie Blake have nice large clear text.

"Enough inigo enough" and "nose is not toes" by Doman are both good.
