My mom saw the CBS show and she called me. She told me it what she saw mimiced much of what my daughter and I have been going through for years! We have had bloodwork done and sent to promethius labs and are still waiting for results! I found your site via the web when I began my research.

In Topic: Gravy?

I use corn starch. There is a recipe on the box. I have NEVER had lumps or gravy that has not turned out. The only difference is that the gravy is shiny on the surface. I never had luck with flour gravy so started making gravy from corn starch years before dx. Good luck!

Shiney surface:

That may be the fat floating on the surface (sorry, I know it sounds gross). The trick is to pour the drippings into a plastic ziplock bag, the fat floats to the top. Cut a small hole in the bottom of the bag and let the juice out. Pinch the bottom of the bag before the fat flows into the pan. Also remember to dissolve the cornstarch in cold water before you add it to the gravy so you won't have lumps!!

In Topic: Home Schooling?

I too believe that teachers are wonderful (my husbands is just finishing his Master's to teach Math in the public schools!)

For our son who is gifted, the public school system just wasn't able to meet his needs. Teacher's are very busy and don't have the time for one-on-one like we do as parents. They don't have the time to customize a cirriculum that will meet each childs individual needs which is what my husband and I have done for our kids. We are all diffierent and what works for one won't necessarily work for another.

There are plenty of bullies and people with issues in all aspects of life. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, " We need to be the change we wish to see in the world". The same goes for our kids, all we can do is teach and lead by example. It's sad they have to deal with such things at such a young age but unfortunately, even my homeschooled kids are exposed to it on occasion.

As far as the issuse of being able to afford to home school... Is it because you work or are you afraid of the cost? If your concers are cost related there are many charter schools and programs out there that provide the necessary cirriculum for you at no cost. My children are homeschooled but are actually registered in the public school system and recieve their books for free as well as access to experienced teachers who keep our records and administer the state tests etc. There are so many options out there. As I said above, my son is gifted and I have found it easier to teach him myself at his own pace than to fight him tooth and nail to conform to school standards and be bored out of his mind. You need to decide for yourself what is best for your daughter, don't let the cost scare you because there are other options if you choose to homeschool!
