Over the past six months or so I have been receiving some lovely emails from people who read my blog, all asking the same question. Could I give a bit more information about how I home school? Some ask specific questions and some more general. I have found as I answer these questions that I am repeating myself and so have taken the decision to write about how I home school in a short blog series. I need to be honest and say it is for my benefit to cut down on the amount of email regurgitation I do! Instead, I will be able to direct the person asking to this series. Don’t misunderstand me, I LOVE when someone contacts me, and I very much enjoy the email contact I have with people all over the world. It has been one of the most wonderful and surprising things to come from blogging. That said, I have limited amount of time and could do without writing the same stuff over and over!
If anyone has specific questions about the hows and whys of our home school that you would like me to answer in the series please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or if you like leave a message here on the blog) and I will endeavour to answer them all. I am happy to attempt to answer almost any question relating to home school and I don’t offend easily, so they don’t have to be positive ones (however, I would appreciate a modicum of kindness!). I am not willing to comment on anything other than our home school here at angelicscalliwags. The reason for this is simply that I believe passionately that everyone should have the freedom to school their children in the way that they believe fits their family and that one way is not necessarily better or worse than another. I school this way to maximise my strengths and minimise my weaknesses. If I had different strengths and weaknesses I would inevitably school a completely different way.
I’m not very good at writing these types of posts (as you all know if you have been reading this blog for any time at all) but I will do my best and hope it will be useful for some body!
