Can some of you moms that have used MFW for the younger years (2-8) help me with a concern I have?
I have enjoyed the materials I have purchased from SCM very much. I planned on using the SCM materials, Study Guides for history and other subjects as much as possible for the next few years for 6 of our 7 children. My oldest I planned on doing the MFW high school program. That would be a new venture for us.
Anyway, a mother on the TWTM board warned me that her daughter had read almost all of the SCM HIGH SCHOOL level books while she was in the MFW Elementary programs. She was basically giving me a warning about SCM not being rigorous enough. Since I don't have any MFW TMs, I have no way of verifying this and I thought I should ask here first.
Anyway, the reason why looking at the website for MFW doesn't fully shed
light on what that mom meant, is that MFW has these book recommendations
that are part of the TM (free reading), but not on their website. So unless you have the
TM, you don't see all the books that are recommended, but not required either.
I'm thinking this is where the daughter was picking up some books that SCM
might have on the high school curriculum guide possibly....
I’d love some input on the accuracy of this mom’s statement for those of you who can look at or remember your TM’s from MFW elementary years. I’m not trying to start a debate on which is a more CM program (I think that is obviously SCM) or better or anything. I just want to address in my mind what this mom stated to me as I have no way to check it out.
Also, hoping to not to cause anyone stress or anxiety, so please forgive me in advance, as that is not my intention! :-)
Thank you and blessings,
