As a second year homeschooler who is really trying to get off the 'conveyor belt' and embrace child-led learning, I would like to see a post about child-led learning and learning to trust that process. :)

Subscribed to the blog.  Loved the post about whether to teach cursive or not.  I would like to see a post in the future regarding gentle ways to answer criticisms of our unconventional teaching style. :)

I would like to see posts about homeschooling while dealing with a highly sensitive child who has trouble dealing with other kids- basically, how to not let your child become isolated.

 

Especially when you don't have money for classes and group trips.

I would like to see an article on preparing kids for tests that may be required by some states, while still being focused on child led learning.

Love this! I think I may have finally found a curriculum / school that fits our family. My boys are only 2 years apart. I would like to see an article about how to best juggle teaching them both at different levels.

Looks like a nice blog! I'd like to see a post about juggling homeschooling an older kid while caring for multiple younger ones- incorporating them in to the homeschool routine.


Lovin' up my Solstice son b. 12/07 and my HBAC Autumn daughters b. 10/10 and 9/12!

I enjoyed the "Bored" article- and I would like to see more articles about home-schooling an only child.   It can be a bit of a challenge keeping up with play groups, and visiting friends - I would like to learn more about how other parents of "onlys" do it, what the effects have been and how to keep it fun and social.
