There wasn’t an option for not being at work: ie retired.

I second 2paw: need more work options, such as looking for work/unemployed.

There wasn’t an option for not being at work ie homemaker with grown children. I’d love to see more stuff for grownups on the site.

Also not an option for a combo of schooling choices & no way to leave it blank. (Making surveys is hard, isn’t it? A local environmental non-profit sent one out that was *so* messed up, I wasn’t the only one to send feedback that it wasn’t working…they sent out a new one & asked everyone to please please give it another try. This one is much better than theirs!)

no option for grown up children- ie children but no schooling. I stopped there.

No option for children too young to be in school. I answered “traditional non-private school” because we plan to send our kids to public school when the time comes.

I also found the age ranges to be gigantic!

ah – next time I might test it on a few more people – so thank you all for your feedback – I have fixed those points – so a couple of results (for the retired folk) might be a little skewed – but thank you all. I will post the results in a week or so.

The children are grown up and don’t live with us! I answered “I buy the occasional thing” but actually I do buy online quite often but wouldn’t describe myself as an addict! We live in a rural area and it is practical to get the postal service to do the work rather than drive miles to buy something!

I’m a little (a lot) out of touch with all the gizmos, and I’d love for you to write something about the “craft apps and resources” you mention! Just an idea – thanks :)

In the states, private means you pay quite a bit of money to send your child. Public is government run and free. Lastly, what about homeschool – no curriculum, or even better, non-secular homeschool. Those that follow a curriculum tend to be secular, as for the most part those are the only curriculums.

Same here too – although I think in the UK a public school is actually a fee paying school. Anyway i think you know what I mean by this question.

I’d like to see more patterns for larger and/or women that aren’t frumpy.

Looking into it

22 Maureen January 26, 2012 at 12:18 am

That should have read larger and/or older women!!

What Francesca said – could you do an article on the apps & gizmos for tablets? :)
