the point of this post is two-fold.
#1- i am trying to imbed a link into something, which i have never done before.
(I know, vicki, hard to believe, but true. now we'll just see if it works!)
#2- because i found this video to be quite interesting.
now, of course, i take it all in, chew it up, digest, and then regurgitate it into something more suited to our 'unschooling' lifestyle; but i still think it's very useful info. so, any homeschooling/unschooling parents out there who might be sweating the 'reading skills' stuff, take a look. and those of you who have no worries about it, due to either incredibly gifted and advanced children, or a natural cool-as-a-cucumber confidence that everything will fall into place when and how it's ready to; watching the video will still give you some technical statistics and psyco-babble lingo to use if ever you need to defend yourself, your kids, or your family's lifestyle and educational choices! kind of a one-up in the pocket, just in case!
