Since nobody reads blogs during the summer months except those of you reading this now, I've decided to post some parenting stuff and other potentially useful tips.
Last week I had a brain storm. I had just gotten back from taking my keyboarding test at the college *97 wpm* and VC was inquiring how I am able to type so quickly. He said there is no way he can type without looking at the keyboard.
But a second past - and I was upstairs digging through my giveaway pile locating the instructional typing CD-ROM that I purchased in 2003 for less than $10.
Lucky VC, he is now spending 5 minutes a day doing fun, interactive typing lessons. He balked and kicked and screamed on Day 1 but then he discovered it is fun in a learned kinda way, and he has agreed to 5 minutes a day. But not more than 5 because he told his friends on Facebook Chat that he would be back in 5 minutes and you know they must be running their stopwatches or something ;-)
He is now at 14 wpm.
Of course I'll keep you posted on his progress because I'm turning into that mom in my previous post....
