prairiewindmomma Posted January 23, 2012 Share Posted January 23, 2012 I keep bumping into people IRL whose perspective on homeschooling is that if they provide proper materials to their children that the child should essentially be able to teach themselves. My experience has been that learning (especially math) comes more easily when the parent teaches a concept and the child does a worksheet to solidify/review their understanding of the concept. Homeschooling should be more than having amazon ship you a few boxes of books, iykwim. Obviously as homeschooling mothers, we are short on time. Many of us have multiple students. And, we all have seasons in life when school is less than ideal (I've homeschooled through three bedrests, a child having cancer, etc.). I also believe children should work more independently as they grow older. But, what's the baseline? What's the ideal? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
