Mommybostic Posted January 18, 2011 Share Posted January 18, 2011 Well, two weeks in and my son and I are both still kicking! It's been hard, fun, tiring, fascinating, educating, and more! I just thought I'd share my little tidbits to anyone who may be on the fence--but mostly I'd just like to share with some like-minded parents! 1. Lesson plans can be wonderful things--but I haven't done exactly what is on the plan yet--not one single day! 2. My son is just as bright as I thought he was, though his attention span is very short and he needs a lot of positive reinforcement to stay motivated. 3. I find that my brain is still fully functioning even after all of these years--much more so than I thought! This experience could be great for both of us! 4. My son's attitude is already improving away from the corrosive influence of his "friends." 5. Time flies! I was afraid we would be trying to fill up the day, but instead the day ends and we have things left to do! 6. My favorite curriculum component doesn't impress my son, and is turning out to be rather cumbersome for our particular situation. Sigh. One of the hardest things is to remember that he is learning, not me, and so it has to be geared for him. Sigh again. I'm sure more will be revealed in the fullness of time. Right now I am SO glad that I finally had the courage to take this step, and I am so excited about where we can go in the future! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
