I was a pioneer homeschooling mom back in the 1980's when homeschooling was first becoming popular.
I so understand, it was so much harder to do back then. Hey, perhaps we know each other somehow? lol

Congratulations!! I love hearing how others are doing after their home education.
[I think the McDougall program would be wonderful as a nutrition course for homeschoolers. My oldest son and his wife are homeschooling their kids. He is an artist and he and his wife write things for homeschoolers. Perhaps he and I can get together and colaborate on a plant-based nutrition book for kids.[/quote]
I do most to all the cooking and all the shopping and no one ever complains about the food so I will just shift what is served. We work very cooperatively. Today we are working on a modified Day 1, yeah that new, and then so on and so forth. Haven't heard a peep actually no one has noticed or will because it just isn't that different. lol We have been working toward this direction for some time now.
I am going to use the McDougal videos and Forks over Knives, using the adult programs and vids and stopping for discussion time and note taking. Usually it is easier to get mine to understand the choice differences from a science and and historical standpoint. Seeing the trail that others have forged helps them to comprehend the depth of the problem as well.
Anyway, nice to meet you.
