One of the biggest struggles I have as a homeschooling parent, is knowing when to admit that I need help with teaching my boys about something. I mean…if I made the decision to educate them I home, I should know how to teach everything from Pre-K to high school calculus, right?
It took a long time for me to finally acknowledge that the correct answer to that is NO. I don’t have to know every little thing about every subject they’re going to learn at home. What I do have to do though, look/ask for help when I realize I’m hitting a wall.
This means that I give up on having my younger work from a social studies textbook one afternoon, and relent to letting him play social studies games online instead. Or this might mean getting an online writing tutor for my oldest son when he tells he wants help with his creative writing and I have no idea where to start with that.
Have you found yourself needing help teaching your kiddos? What did you do?
