I have a 6 year old little girl that is reading 2 years above her grade level and 21 month old little boy that is having development issues (being born a few weeks early may have something to do with it).

My daughter is just like I was as a child, she learns things very quickly and then becomes a behavior problem for the teacher. I'm hoping the added challenge of a foreign language with be academically stimulating and challenging enough that it solve her behavior issues. I currently stay home with my son while attending college full-time via an online university. Since starting this online program I have become fully aware of how powerful one to one laptop programs can be. I want to get them adopted in my local school and/or move to an area that has them when I graduate from my university.
