14 years into this homeschooling career, and I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing sometimes.
My oldest son graduated without the benefit of a physics class. It doesn’t seem to have permanently damaged him (for that matter, I graduated public school without the benefit of a physics class and have never suffered from it).
But my children have never been satisfied to be just like a sibling. I know that’s something worth celebrating, but doggone it makes me tired! So I find myself in the positition of researching physics curriculums. Weighing options and feeling highly inadequate to the task. I’ve been in this position before…pretty frequently actually. I know in the end we’ll all come out wiser, and that this is part of the commitment I made to homeschool my children. I will consider and research every option to give them the best possible education.
I expect my children to learn new things each year. I can expect no less of myself.
