I think movies like this help to perpetuate the social isolation myth of homeschooling.
At the same time, I would imagine the socialization challenges and solutions could look quite differently for homeschooling families with only one child. Perhaps that could be the basis for a future conversation or panel of homeschooling parents.
Everybody’s favorite subject
Let’s talk about maths. You have a background in math and science, which I could see as beneficial as a homeschooling educator. However, I can tell you from personal experience, as the child of an aerospace engineer, that just because a parent knows math doesn’t mean that they are going to be a good teacher of it.
What’s your approach to teaching math? What do you find most challenging about it? Do you use tutors? And do you think you’ll be able to continue to teach math—or homeschooling in general—when your kids reach high school age?
