I would like to start a new Accomplishment Thread especially for kids.
By Kids I do not mean the youngest members on here but actually the kids of members.

I am currently trying to teach my 5 year old daughter and I think it would be nice to see how her progress relates to other kids her age.

Birgit's accomplishments so far:

Checkerboard pattern
Solving a face
White cross (via daisy)
Solving 1st layer (I found out she is actually color neutral on this, I have found her cube with different layers solved)
75% on 2nd layer

She can in fact do the 2nd layer but is not very confident yet.
So she asks for help but all I actually have to is confirm that she is doing it right.

I am still surfing the forum on possible apporaches for the LL.
Already found a very interesting one by Chis Hardwick using commutators all based around very similar moves.
However I am still considering using some corner swapping, Sune and U perm for finishing it.

Or do I dare to use R'D'RD with the risk that all will get messed up when a D is forgotten?

My little sister is 1 and she can throw a cube.

I'm 17 and I can tell when unnecessary threads are created.

My 7 year old sister can solve:

1 face of 2x2
Tips of Pyraminx Checkerboard on 2-5
Make dog on Rubiks Twist

I'm using this for the opposite purpose. If this thread doesn't get removed, could it be changed to relatives/friends?
I've taught my Dad to solve the Pyraminx. He's completely against algorithms, so I haven't been able to teach him 3x3 (I know there are methods with few/no algorithms, but they'd be too hard to teach).
He averages like 5 minutes

Just the sort of comment I'd expect from a kid who starts threads about anagrams or gift-wrapping??? :confused:

Yeah, we might as well remove 25% of all threads here.
This one has got a very specific subject, cubing related and (provided replies stay on topic) it can eventually become of use for other parents that are teaching their kids.

Well she's not my child, but my sister. She's 5 and I just taught her how to solve a Magic. She's super excited to be able to compete in Vancouver Open I tried teaching her how to solve the cube but it was to frustrating for both of us. But she can solve easy "scrambles".

Yeah I know about that one but I'll leave it up to the moderators mercy.
It's not that the forum currently is getting tons of new accomplishment threads every week.

To be "safe" I could have chosen a different thread title for the exact same post but that didn't seem right either.

Oh well, we'll see...

Alternatively I might start a thread about "teaching kids", discussing various approaches and post a result in there every once in a while.

Lol cubenovice.

YES JDL!!

Once i decided to teach my 6-years-old sister how to solve the 3x3. But she was driving me crazy. Still she knows how to build up the cross.
