My daughter used to hate reading with a real passion. When she was in school she could hardly read and used to make words up when forced to read out in class. Why? So the children would not make fun of her. I wonder, who is really to blame for how competitive some children are? Would it be grown ups by any chance?
Anyway meet Nikki, she is Double Dorks main character. My daughter went over to her friends house recently and found that her pal had created a Double Dork House out of cardboard and characters from the story. She got home and said "Mummy I want to make this." So here are some of her Double Dork Illustrations. Nikki's sister Brianna on the left and Brandon on the right. The only thing I don't like about the stories is the way the author introduces the girls crush. I think we need to look around at all the problems with teen girls and boys and steer them away from this sort of thing by Educating them differently like in Croatia. They have the lowest level of girl/teen problems because they teach their girls good old fashioned values, which is something that is seriously missing in our Western Culture. Hence the massive problem!

I still cannot get over how children that struggle in class are bullied and forced to read out their test results to the class. Nikki in the Double Dork diaries relates to this problem very well. School life these days is more like being in a Nazi camp. If you do not finish your work "You will stay in during your break time!" And lets face it dyslexia is common, but many slip through the net as their is no funding for children that struggle. They will not get tested properly. And parents will end up having to fit the expensive bill themselves, which is over £200. Total rip off.
Anyway my daughter loves the Dork Diaries. The illustrations and text in the books make it more fun to read. Imagine that last year she hated reading and now she wants to sell her toys to buy some books for her Library. Yes she has a little Library in her room. She would love a huge big book shelf. Maybe one day, when the boat comes in.
I often wonder what our world would be like if it was run by kind Mothers, you know Mothers that care about all children and are not brought by money. I bet if they were in Government they would help promote talented children like my daughter and make sure we had a child friendly music chart.
This is my daughters story. She begged me to homeschool her. Please support the German Homeschool Family in the USA. Children have rights to not be bullied and should not be forced to learn about S-- Education as it is proven that it was created by a very bad man!
