My most pressing issue right now is finding a writing program/system for my 13 yr old son. I guess I have been avoiding it for the most part since bringing him home because he HATES it so much. I need a serious plan that starts him from pretty much the ground up. I believe this will ease our frustration a bit. I would rather start at the beginning of something and move along more quickly than continue this struggle. I have been looking into Writing With Ease (Susan Wise Bauer). Are any of you familiar with this and what do you think? Any other suggestions?
