So many good questions!
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the thoughtful questions you’ve posed. Most recently our conversations have centered on homeschooling – how and what works, and why.
For those of you who’ve asked, our family of ten have homeschooled from “day one” with four high school graduates and one college graduate so far. But with our youngest being only ten-years-old, we still have a way to go!
Last week we talked about what a typical homeschooling day looked like in our home, and today we’re covering questions like:
How do you avoid gaping holes in your child’s education?
What do you do about teaching so many different ages?
And how do you keep up with it all??
What if you have an illness or new babies or other major setbacks?
What are some recommended resources?
Here’s some of the best advice I can think to offer when it comes to homeschooling…..
