My oldest child is currently using SOS, and would like to continue using it. However, I have had no end this year with computer problems because almost weekly she messes with something on the computer to change the settings that I have to go in and fix. (She's ADD with hyperactivity. VERY easily distracted.) No amount of discussion, punishment, etc, will make her stop. (The most recent was when she locked the computer out with a password, and no one knew what the password was. That was a fun time fixing that one!) So, as much as she enjoys getting to do her work on the computer, I've been considering switching her to workbooks for obvious reasons. I can get a year's worth of curriculum for about the same price for SOS or LifePAC, so I was wondering if anyone here had experience with both and could tell me what they like/don't like when comparing the two.
Right off hand, I'm already worried that workbooks will be harder to have her redo if she messes up, with erasing pencil marks not being quite as tidy as clearing out a computer file (and erasing a lesson just seems like it might humiliate her, as there's evidence she already tried it, where clearing out the lesson so she can try again is more like a clean slate). On the other hand, that poor computer won't make it much longer if she doesn't stop fooling around with things, and with two other kids and a household to manage, I can't stand over her shoulder all day. Her handwriting is great, but she hates writing, and completely locks up when having to copy (e.g., spelling words). Any advice is much appreciated! :)
