My son often needs this type of assistance. When I give it to him, I feel like I'm helping him jump over his weaknesses (decoding, note taking, long term focusing) so he can participate in the higher level of thinking (analysis, synthesis, evaluation), but also try to be conscious of not doing the work for him. That's often a fine line. People need all sorts of help, so giving it, in itself shouldn't be the issue. If he's not able to handle the higher levels of thinking, then you're probably going to far.

If he can adequately advocate for himself and use all the technology available (and there's a lot) then he should be able to hold his own.

[ - ] When my dcs were preschool age, I used to read on UB where parents were upset because some kid had hit their kid in school. Or, more commonly, another kid BIT a kid. But apparently there are people here who believe that kids never bite one another in preschool, and if one kid does, he is immediately kicked out of the school. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

But the Israeli side is the same justification that the US gives when it kills civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. So either you have to say that we are all evil like the Israelis and we all just want to kill Iraqi and Afghani children because we hate them. So, do you admit that as a US citizen, you obviously hate those children and you are evil? or do you recognize some nuances? Because it is far easier to justify Israel bombing targets that have rocket launchers aimed at them directly, then it is for the US to bomb a target in Iraq or Afghanistan which do not have rocket launchers shooting missiles over NYC. So aren't WE more evil than the Israelis? [ Reply | More ]

My period would come 6-8 weeks after a CP. You will likely ovulate but it's hard to predict when because your cycle is not the usual 28 days this time. You can still TTC - just have sex every 2-3 days if you can. You can also use the ovulation predictor sticks but don't be surprised if you ovulate 4-6 weeks after your CP. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

If you're young and healthy throw away the pregnancy and ovulation tests. Just have lots of sex and more than likely you'll get pregnant and you'll find out the old fashioned way, when it dawns on you that you haven't had a period in six weeks and you feel weird. If it doesn't happen in six to nine months, then think about going to see someone, but in the meantime stop torturing yourself. [ Reply | More ]

I would go the other way. Read TYCOF and follow it. Don't think of it as TTC for the first couple of months until you know your fluids, then try again. I think leaving it all to chance and not understanding your body and cycles is more likely to leave you in the lurch, particularly if you are young and are prepared to go to an RE after less than a year.
