Reilly&DeclansMom and I mentioned the Ordinary Parents' Guide in our posts She likes it, I don't. I tried to use it with Ani for higher level phonics and it bored her to death. Then again, this is also the child who completed First Language Lessons, in it's entirety, in 3 months and still remembers everything. The repitition of OPG was awful for her. For Cameron, it was also a major flop, so we've just given up on it completely and sold it a few months ago. It made no sense to Cameron and the memorization was extremely frustrating to him and he saw no point for it. Using it made him decide he just may never actually want to learn to read, it was that awful for him.
