Strengths, Weaknesses, and Homeschooling
Is it normal for your homeschooler to have strengths and weaknesses in certain subjects? How much should you worry about keeping your child at grade level? Is there a way to know what your child “should” be learning?
This week, the homeschool sisters dive into these questions and offer up some thoughts about the “standards,” plus how to keep from worrying all the time.
They chat about kid quirks, dealing with state requirements, grandma doubts and dad concerns. And mostly, they remind you that all kids naturally develop on their own timelines, so don’t fret- you’ve got this!
