  1. After reading your post, I listened very carefully to the episodes you mentioned. I did not hear any swear words in either episode. In Lyman Coulter and George C. Pickett, might you be referring to the word ass? If so, this is a perfectly legitimate (and "clean") use of that word. According to the Webster's dictionary, it means, "a stupid, obstinate, or perverse person".
  2. I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't panic yet. She's only 6. For now, I would just keep casually working on it, maybe trying different "angles" (methods). No pressure...You don't want her to feel frustrated or like she can't get it. Read a lot TO her. Sometimes the "light" just switches on suddenly.
  3. We loved Video Text Interactive for algebra I and II. I kept telling my girls that this is the way algebra should be taught. (Not the way I learned it in a public school classroom.) We started VTI for geography and quickly became very frustrated. I asked around for suggestions and ended up switching to Teaching Textbooks for geography, and this is going very well.
