Mar 9 I started reading and studying about homeschooling when E1 was only a year old, so I have had time to learn about many of the different theories and philosophies concerning methods of homeschooling. (I probably have over-studied it, but that’s another post.) Logically, mentally, I believe totally that traditional methods of teaching are not the best- that kids learn best and most when they are left to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule. I have seen that is the case over and over again with my kids. Still, I find it so hard to let go of that tendency to try to get them to do something the way they would be doing it if they were sitting in a classroom with 30 other kids. It always backfires, so one of these days I may figure out I really shouldn’t keep trying to do it that way.
