My son has been homeschooled since first grade. While homeschooling wasn’t initially our first choice, it’s something that we now love. Homeschooling gives us a lot of freedom in terms of what he learns, where he learns it, and when he learns — since we aren’t beholden to a brick-and-mortar school, and we don’t have to follow a strict schedule, we’re able to go out and have all kinds of adventures, and he’s able to study a lot of nontraditional subjects and topics.
However. In my experience, homeschooling your child the way we do (a hybrid of homeschooling and unschooling, and leaning more toward the latter every day) also means that sometimes, you mess up. Sometimes, you don’t realize you’re in over your head until it’s too late, and you don’t have always have the resources to dig yourself back out of the hole you’ve made.
Case in point: my homeschooled kid missed almost two years of math. It didn’t happen on purpose, but it did happen. I’m not proud of it, but now that we’re on the other side, it’s a lot easier to talk about. Luckily, he’s mostly caught up now, and the experience has even taught me a lot about just how okay most kids will be after the virus epidemic finally concludes.
