  1. The tech addicted 6 year old learns from tech

    As the title indicates, our son is tech addicted. And some days I say "screw it, we're having an Octonauts day because I can't deal with you right now". He's watched Octonauts and Wild Kratts so many times. (I think I know everything there is to know about wild turkeys now). We knew he picked things up occasionally, but today, while out at the local thrift store, we picked up the HUGE coffee table book from Discovery Channel's LIFE mini series. We'd already picked up the DVD at Goodwill ...

  4. Homeschooling the tech addicted 5 year old, on a night schedule

    When my husband and I first realized that our son was as much a night owl as we were, we realized that life was going to be a little bit interesting. We realized this, btw, when he was about 4 days old, and the nurses began to panic that none of his first tests of the day were coming out right, but every later test was fine. Until we explained that we were night owls, and they realized our son probably was as well, and shifted his tests back 4 hours. Suddenly test 1 was no longer at 7am, but 11am, ...
