Over here....that would be because the parents do it instead.

My DS is 13. This year, we're turning it around. I have asked him to start on his projects and get all the planning and first draft done. Then I'll "help" him with refining it. We are talking about each section and I'm asking him how he thinks he should present or word smith to make it better.
*sigh* It's not easy....this parenting thing.
Oh.. good... I'm glad you said that, cuz... he's a third grader... and probably ADD.. which doesn't help. The thing is.. he's in the mentally gifted program... which I kinda was surprised and said, you must be mistaken when I spoke with the people who did the testing.. and they are like.. nope... it's not always about how good thier grades are.. sometimes they are bored.. or have a different way of thinking.. but they look for certain qualities, and they do those standard tests.. and IQ stuff... and if all of these numbers add up.. then they consider them gifted. in any event... he does ok in school... but I can see what they mean... he might have a differnt way of processing info.. and then eventually come up with the answer... for example... most people would say 2+2 = 4..... but to him.... he might be like.. 1+1+1+1=4... or 8-4=4 . same answer.. just a differnt way of coming up with it. they look for unusual or creative thinking.
Happy Valentine's Day.
It is nice to know that with DVC my prices won't keep going up (unless I want to buy more later, it does keep going up to buy in.)
Both my girls are in gifted and my oldest is ADD. Actually, most of the kids I've seen in their gifted classes seem very ADD. Gifted kids just seem to think differently and need a little more stimulation.
Thanks! Happy Valentine's Day to you too.
Hey! I've missed you guys. I have no idea what I've missed and hope all is well with everyone. My computer is home!!! However, my email is not working as usual. It's now suddenly asking for a username and p/w where it never did before.
....hey, I missed ya....
Happy Valentine's Day!.
Happy Valentine's Day!
....and for YOU....
I saw you on FB woman! But glad you are back here.
...she wasn't indecent, was she?
Yes, the old laptop my husband was given would allow me on fb easily enough. The DISboard took way to long....if it would load.
Hanging at AKV this weekend! We went to AK today. Waited almost an hour for the safari but the animals were active. A giraffe walked in front of our jeep and made us wait. We ate at Yak & Yeti for the first time. I really liked it!
You. really. are. the. Mean. Queen!
I am so jealous (but so happy to be able to live vicariously through you!!).
Oh look, it's snowing......again.
