My colleague's daughter was tested in 2nd grade because she was struggling with reading. She graduated valedictorian at a great suburban HS. She was accepted at Duke, Rice, Cornell....... She went to grad school at Yale. [ Reply | More ]

Of course. My dd didn't click with reading until the summer between first and second grade. Many children benefit from very explicit phonics. My dd now in college and doing well. [ Reply | More ]

Well, maybe not reassuring for your particular situation, but I have the flip side problem: my son taught himself to read - and was reading fluently - by age 3. He is of normal intelligence... and autistic. [ Reply | More ]

Yes! My best friend -- took forever to learn to read (her parents were freaking out) and she said it finally "clicked" and she went on to be a great student (U. of Chicago, grad school) and a huge reader, too. STAY CALM [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Five year old is so whiny and moody. I told him to make his own breakfast because I'm sick of catering to a person who is not being nice to me. As a second option, I suggested he ask his father to make him breakfast. DH has t gotten up with the kids once since we had them 8 years ago. And he works less than I do. Am I cruel or just putting my foot down? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Ugh that sucks -- does your dh do something else instead, or are you doing just about everything kid-related? That would bum me out if my dh never wanted to get up to hang w/the kids. But maybe he's better in the evenings, or weekend time? [ Reply | More ]

I dont know if the rules have changed but previously you COULD apply for a 4th or 5th grade spot but you could not be applying for the last year in that school -- IE if you were applying for a 5th grade seat the school had to go past 5th grade. Obviously very few options, and I honestly don't know of anyone who got a seat this way, but there was a process for it. Check the DOE website under the G&T section. GL! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Revolyn Ultra Those in the placebo group said they generally ate less and lost one pound on average. Those who took the extract lost about two pounds in two weeks. According to WebMD people need to take the extract for at least three months to see any results. According to WebMD, the information is poor but Oz said that his test results proved to him that the extract works. The Dukan diet for weight loss relies on high protein, low calorie foods for achieving rapid weight loss. While rapid weight loss is the motive behind this diet, the weight that you lose does not come back to you. Generally, it has been found that crash diets that allow you to lose weight quickly also pile up the lost pounds at the same rate. The Dukan diet supposedly keeps the lost pounds away for life. It works through 4 phases, over a period of several months, depending upon your weight loss goal. The 4 phases of the Dukan diet are explained below. This is a great way to melt off extra fat and shed those pounds. Pus you will be building your Garcinia Cambogia endurance and energy all at once too. High intensity routines are excellent exercises to get slimmer fast and they will be more fun and much more reliable than normal cardio routines. Stop eating junk food - chocolate is not a food group! Throw out your chips buttered Garcinia Cambogia Extract microwave popcorn candy and anything else unhealthy. This includes your sugar bowl and white rice and pasta. http://www.ifirmationantiagingcream.com/revolyn-ultra-de/ 0 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
