This Mama is one mad mama bear. I am starting to wonder if before my son goes on ANY meds I research them first before agreeing to them. I cannot believe a psychiatrist would prescribe something that is so potent. Now it feels like we can’t even get my son off this drug. I am writing this blog post for a couple of reasons. One to vent, two because this is a potent drug and if you or your kids are on it you should know about it, three I am hoping to find others out there who maybe going through what we are or have gone through it.
Every week I am trying to bring you the good, the bad, and the ugly of what we go through each week. If you have been following you know that I have a 13 year old son who has High Functioning Autism, as well as other problems. I also have 7 year old daughter with Aspergers. I don’t want to sugar coat anything that we are going through as there are times where it isn’t easy. There are times we have the most awesome moments.
Do your children like board games? What about board games you can take on the go that are both educational and fun? My kids absolutely love board games. I especially love the ones that I can take any where with out having the mess of a board game to clean up. We recently had the chance to review We Discover Wildlife: Forest Quest by Kindermatica LTD.
Since the first book we started reading on the Circle C Ranch my daughter has fallen in love with the stories. We are going to be starting at the very beginning very soon as my daughter loves Andi’s character and the horses. We received the book Tales from the Circle C Ranch by Susan K. Marlow and Andrea Carter’s Tales from the Circle C Ranch Learning Lapbook for our review. After reading this book we are really interested in more of the Circle C Adventures.
One of the more funner sides of homeschooling is being able to homeschool the kids with videos. We can take subjects and build on them using videos and sometimes it is just as fun to let the kids pick the topic and just let them lead. It has also given us new ideas for new things to study as well. It is also a nice break from the tradition text books and worksheets too. We recently received a subscription for SmartKidz Media Library For Homeschoolers by SmartKidz Media for review.
