Like most people, when the global situation hit we found ourselves home schooling. As I talk about in today’s episode, it was always my intention to home school since I found out I was pregnant with my son.
What’s happened for me and a lot of families is that we’ve discovered through the pandemic that not only can we home school, but there are many reasons we ought to.
The school system as it stands is an archaic model that for some bizarre reason technology hasn’t had as big an impact as it has on every other facet of our lives.
I don’t think it’ll be very long before there’s explosive growth in home schooling among families across the world. It’s going to shake off the stuffy, ‘weird’, reputation it’s had for the last few decades to become a pretty normal part of our lives.
What I share in today’s episode is our ‘origin story’, how we came to be where we are now. I’m not here to tell anyone else how to home school, in fact, I believe there are as many approaches as there are home schoolers.
We are all individual with our unique perceptions of the world – well, shaped a lot by our own schooling which is far from individualised – and we bring something different to the home ed table.
We know our kids better than anyone and we ultimately want what’s best for them. Who better to guide their way in life and their learning?
