I've recently been researching homeschooling as an option for my son who is about to turn two. I know it's early and he doesn't need any "formal" teaching for awhile. But I'm super excited about the prospect of home learning with him. That being said, I'm totally afraid I'll fail at it and doom him to days of boredom and laziness. I know that's a common fear...so I guess it makes sense that I'm having it :). I just read all these books and blogs about people who do tons of creative activities that require bought materials and large messes that need to be cleaned up....and I'm afraid if I don't have lots of activities that require extensive prep work, large messes (think shaving cream play) and whatnot that I will hinder my child's learning and creative development. I have read enough to know that the only thing that gives you confidence is years spent doing it...but can those of you who are experienced help me feel that I'm capable of doing a good job?
btw...the large messes part is semi tongue-in-cheek....sort of ;)
