1  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Loyalty Points coupons on: April 24, 2012, 06:56:06 AM
A couple of Questions:

I would like to earn enough loyalty points to redeem them for a 50% off coupon for Little Reader Delux.  However, because I do not have enough loyalty points, the dropdown menu only tells me that I have insufficient points.  Is there a way for me to find out how many points are needed for this coupon?  I would like to have a goal in mind.

Also, is there an ETA for the release of LR version 3?  Or will I be able to upgrade when it becomes available, if I by LR version 2 now?

Wow, thank you for all that info Teachingmytoddlers!  I really needed to hear that and I didn't even know it.  I really appreciate your insight.

Thanks for posting about your giveaway!  I also appreciated the post on your blog about babies and television.  Thank you!  I hope you have much success with the Monkisee products.  I am definitely interested in them for my little one.

Hello leemr,

I think you have done a wonderful job at being part of the forum.  What I have found most helpful for myself is to look through the recent threads and click on the topics I find most interesting.  I also enjoy going through the Forums main page and clicking through the categories.

Then in my teaching endeavors, if I ever have a question, I start a new topic with my question and wait for responses from other forum members.  There are many friendly people here who will answer your questions with great advice and resources and their own experiences.  I also enjoy responding to other members topics when I feel I have something to add to the conversation, though my experiences are limited, I try to help any way that I can.

The most important thing to remember is that this is a tool to help you, and that you can decide when and how to use it. 

Good Luck!

Hi Azalina!
I think you have come to the right place.  I love the Brillkids programs, as well as many of the other curriculum that we discuss here.  I have a lot of respect for you to take the teaching of your child in to your own hands.  Bravo!  Good luck in your teaching endeavors, and let us know when you have questions about anything.  The parents on this forum are wonderful at helping us new parents when we have questions. 
6  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / Re: Hi : ') on: April 24, 2012, 06:08:58 AM
Hi Keri! 
So glad to meet you!  It is so amazing how different we all are and yet how similar we are in wanting to teach our children.  I am a mother of one, who was home schooled as a child.  I love visiting this forum to find great curriculum sources, and to learn about the Brillkids products.  I also enjoy reading the advice we give to one another.  I hope you enjoy this forum, and I look forward to getting to know you.

Hello Gemling!
Welcome to the forum!  So glad to meet you.
Thank you for sharing the website starfall.com!  I love it, and I am going to add it to my son's learning routine.  Karma to you!

Welcome to the Forum!  I hope you enjoy all you can learn here.  The greatest thing I have learned is that I am not alone in my quest to teach my child.  Good luck, and hope to hear more from you soon.
9  Parents' Lounge / Coffee Corner - General Chat / Re: gender experiment by parents here is the article what do you think? on: June 25, 2011, 03:24:12 AM
I remember the discomfort on peoples' faces when I told them I was a vegan in college.  Especially people at church.  As if for some reason my food choice was offensive to them.  Or the comments people made about my mother home-schooling  my siblings and I.  "What our schools aren't good enough for you?"  I heard one of my one woman say once.

So for that I say, let them bring up their children the way that they see fit.  They obviously aren't trying to damage them.  They are trying to raise them the best way that they see fit.  And something obviously happened to their oldest child to cause them to want to create this type of environment for their youngest child.  I applaud them for caring enough about their children to take a stand on something whether or not I agree with it.

That being said, my opinion on the subject of gender neutrality is as follows:
The truth is the truth.  Either a child is a boy or a girl (in almost all cases).  I believe in teaching children the unique and wonderful qualities of their gender, instead of pretending that they are generic.  Working with ones specific gifts and talents and qualities, and learning to appreciate them for what they are is healthy and builds self confidence.  

It is important to remember that the egg did not come before the chicken.  No one sat down and made a list of things that boys should like and girls should like for the world to abide by, such as pink must only be for girls and toy cars must only be for boys.  These are things that each respective gender is naturally drawn to.  For example girls are naturally more nurturing and have the ability to bear children and they like to play with dolls.  Before there were toy dolls, little girls would make dolls out of dish rags or corn husks.  And yes we encourage this naturally occurring desire to nurture by buying them dolls.  But we don't force them to play with dolls.  Quite the opposite.  But we don't necessarily offer toy trucks to little girls either.  Why would we, most girls wouldn't want to play with them.

If this family has two boys who are both asking to have long hair and wear braids without being prompted to do so, they are the exception and not the rule.  I wonder why a little boy would want to have braids in their hair.  Do they admire a female in their life who wears braids in their hair?  Do they have an interest in Native American culture?  Or are do they think they are girls?  I bet there is a logical explanation, and I think that a heart to heart discussion with a child about whatever it is that they want to do (that is incongruent with the norms of gender in our society) would reveal that the child does not in fact have gender confusion, but that they have another reason for wanting that thing.

It is possible that this family is trying to create a gender neutral environment and may be creating a gender confusing environment.  Not to mention an environment where gender distinction is something to be ashamed of.  This is frightening to me, but I don't think that this is their intention, and I am not an expert so, take my opinion is only my perception.
10  The BrillKids Forum / BrillKids Announcements / Re: Get 5% Off on your Online Store purchase this Fathers' Day! on: June 17, 2011, 09:36:02 PM
The Fathers' Day discount can be applied to any product from the BrillKids Online Store. This special discount cannot be used together with other BrillKids discount coupons and does not cover any applicable shipping rates.
[/color]

So if I understand this correctly we will not be able to use this discount in combination with our Brillkids discount coupons which we have purchased with our loyalty points.  Is this correct? 

Will we be able to use it in combination with an affiliate code?  Or does using this discount void any other possible discount.  I am ready to buy LR and was waiting for a promotion like this one to save some more in addition to my coupons.  Was that not a good idea?
11  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / Re: AGreenButterfly Intro on: June 17, 2011, 09:19:46 PM
Hello AGreenButterfly, and welcome to the forum.  It is so nice to hear about the activities and successes of your children.  I am sure we will all benefit from your comments.  I hope you enjoy the forum!

13  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: What are the best wooden building blocks for a toddler? on: June 17, 2011, 04:43:37 AM
Great question!  I saw these blocks at a Scottish festival in the US. 

www.thevillageblocksmith.com

I cannot speak from experience because I have not used them in my home. But I think they are amazing, and beautiful, and I will definitely be purchasing them for my son in the future.

The creator of the blocks is very creative. For example, his business cards are small blocks of wood with the website printed on them.  I love supporting small creative businesses like this one.

Good luck in your search!
14  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Looking for Mr. Men Books in French and Spanish on: June 03, 2011, 10:15:33 PM
I have been looking for the Mr. Men and Little Miss books in French and Spanish for months.  I have found the complete box sets in English, and would like to purchase the complete sets in French and Spanish as well, however I have never seen them and don't know if they exist.   I can only find them in in French sold as single books, but nothing in spanish.  I would like to find a retailer with international shipping or one who has shipping to North America.

Does anyone read these books with their Children?  Has anyone purchased them?  I read these books as a child and really loved them.
 
15  The BrillKids Forum / BrillKids Announcements / Re: Join the BrillKids Blogger Team on: June 01, 2011, 08:37:34 PM
Where can a find a list of all of the blogs on the Brillkids Blogger team?  I am interested in reading these blogs.  Does such a list exist?
