ISO: Article/blog post about how far a child can work away from you


Recommended Posts

I remember a homeschool article or blog post or book?? where the author talked about how you should expect a younger child to work within arms length of you and as they get into high school they can move physically farther from you, for example into another room.  Maybe Susan wrote it?


Does this spark any remembrance from anyone else?

It's sort of like tomato staking.  My understanding is tomato staking is used when  child is not behaving as you would like them too.  This article was more about how we are too quick to assume a child can be left alone to do their school work and how we should be present to help them and encourage them.
