  1. I don't think so , I'm not infamous..... Home Education was the best thing in the world for me, it allowed me to grow into the person I am today, it didn't hinder me in the slightest, although I would say with retrospect that it does depend on the personality of the child. As to whether they'd be suitable for it and indeed it for them.
  2. Hi I was home educated from 11-16 prior to that I attended a state infant and primary school.
  3. Just thought I'd stick my oar in with.. I was home educated so I can report on the end result and the perspective of a child in that educational situation..if anyone's interested.
  4. Hi did anyone have any luck with these classes?
  5. Hiya everybody Just a quick roll call, who'd be up for a parents meet up in Hillsborough in the next few weeks? If I narrow it down to Monday or Tuesday 09:30-12:00 or 13:00-15:00 this will allow anyone with children at school to collect them First thing that springs to mind for me is either a pub beer garden type thing or park if the weather is nice or a coffee somewhere in Hillsboro' all ideas welcome
  6. Thanks very much Jacwelina here's hoping....
  7. Hi All Just a quick bit of advice required, my daughter came home from school with a sunflower seedling in a plastic cup, but I'm not sure what to do with it? I don't want it to die and I don't have the best history with plants - they tend to die on me :s will it be ok as is, or does it need replanting and if so how/where ? thanks in advance
  8. Hi All as there seems to be interest in the idea of a parents group in the north sheff area, I just thought I'd float the idea of perhaps a picnic in the park? or coffee in hillsborough? I chose hillsborough as I think it's fairly accessible for all (fairly good transport links and parking if it's required. Let me know what you all think Just to stress this is a group for parents (mums, dads, grandparents, step-parents etc, although kids are more than welcome, especially are parents with a bit of free time without the kids PM if interested ...
  9. Hi Niklek I will be sure to let you know if I manage to get a group together
  10. I don't know about everyone else, but since my LO started school I've really felt at a loose end God knows what I did with my time before I was a parent Thank you all for the good response, I have PM'd everyone, hopefully we can start a bit of a group up Hope you're all having a great day!
  11. Hi All I think we all know how lonely it can be as a parent, especially if you're doing it alone. It occured to me recently (and I think I'm not alone) that I focus most of my energy on work and the school-run :s....so I've decided it's time to "get a life" happy mum - happy child .... After spending the last 2 years mothering and working my ass off, It'd be nice to get together and socialise with adults again anyone else interested in a weekly coffee and chat? I'm based in the north of the city but can travel.
  12. Hi Guys I was just wondering if anyone who doesn't work full-time would be interested in starting a midweek daytime walkers group, I myself work only part-time and do tend to waste my days off sitting around doing nothing, it'd be nice to get out and about anyone interested?
  13. Hiya I don't know of any in the firvale area, but would recommend DL Auto's on Rutland Road, they've never let me down and they're not too far if you can't find anywhere closer.... Hope this helps a bit x
  14. Thanks for the comments BoroughGal, the point of this post was not to "give up" so thanks but wanted to bring this debate into the public domain so that some solution may be found - I know a fair few council people and other organisations read these posts, so hopefully the planning department or highways will take a note.... I'm not bitching, I'm hoping that some solution will be reached, so that... Police don't have to waste their time patrolling schools during the afternoons Parents aren't needlessly fined Children aren't put at risk & Buses can pass without hindrance As a relative new user of this site, I'd read posts before and hoped that I could at least express my views on here to try and bring the issue to the powers that be. Being criticised and attacked for this has not been a pleasant experience.
  15. No chip, point noted - As I said which YOU ignored, I will respect whatever rules are put in place, I think that the zig-zags should be extended before tickets are dealt out, not too much to ask is it? No problem with parking further away from the school but parents have enough to worry about with the safety issues of actually being there for children at hometime rather than to worry about being fined, if there were obvious signs showing where not to park, it would be better all round, after all, double parking relies on someone not parking on the opposite side of the road from you, if someone does this, why should you receive a ticket for their stupidity? Not allowing parking near the school only pushes the problem further away and unless we cover sheffield in yellow lines (how impractical)...isn't it better to allow this parking (so long as it doesn't cause obstruction...here comes the yellow paint idea again ) during 3-4pm so that parents can get out of the way sooner rather than later? I'm interested in intelligent solutions not slanging matches - Some people don't have the option of walking to collect their children and anyone with the option would use their cars What can be done?
