    Thank you!

    This is just a huge thank you for the "Myself and Others" curriculum. We recently started the level 2 set and my youngest son loves it! - go figure. It is the most peaceful and encouraging (And bonding) part of our day - seriously- totally unexpected. No idea what kind of results we'll get from the lessons, but that in itself makes it worth it.

    I've really been giving some thought to this program myself. I'm half wondering if it shouldn't be part of standard curriculum. I am not sure that this subject can be "over taught" enough for any kid. I'm really thinking about adding it into the program for all of my kids.

      I purchased it, to use with my entire family, neurotypical and those who have difficulties. During the GHC Conference in Cincy, there were quite a few families who came over and purchased it for their kids who weren't following the SC track.

      I'm looking forward to diving in this summer with it.

        What level did you purchase for the whole family? I've been considering this also.

          Because I'm linear, I started with guidebook 1.
          cherylswope also mentioned that my youngers (5 and almost 7) wouldn't get as much out of the older books right now, but the older kids (11, 11, and 13) would benefit from the younger books. Does that make sense?

            Here is a tip for larger families or multiple ages:

            Enlist the older children as "helpers" who can do any of these ...
            1. Laminate or display the visual cue cards,
            2. Teach or model the hand signals,
            3. Read aloud to everyone the literature or teaching book at the end of each lesson.

              And if the children are older - 10 and 12 - and no challengers - other than being high-energy boys - does it made sense to start at level 3? I'm thinking I will appreciate using levels 3 and 4 guides to work through the books.

                Yes! Older children may begin with Myself & Others Book Three.

                Our tips above were indicated for older children in families teaching from Book One for the sake of the younger children in those families.

                Your children will be perfectly suited for beginning with M&O Three. The guides for Three & Four will help your daily lessons and discussions.

                  Thank you! That's what I thought, but I wanted to check so I wouldn't miss anything.
