The biggest boob we ever made when home educating was introducing our kids to the World Wide Web via a massive pair of breasts.
We hadn’t been hooked up till then; it was fairly antiquated where we live and like with fashion, we got everything several years later than everyone else.
Keen to get started with it we all sat excitedly round the new computer and ‘dialled up’. But somehow we immediately got onto the website of a prostitute with enough bosom for ten people. I’ve never seen the kids – or my husband – so glued to a screen!
Now, the web is such a big part of home school life you can’t imagine ever being without it, as we were when we first sprung the kids from school. But apart from information, one of the very best things about it is the opportunity to network, raise awareness, and through blogs showcase home education as it really is.
I’ve been looking at some random ones lately. It is truly uplifting to see the commitment of parents, the inspirational, diverse and valuable activities that kids are engaged in, and the breadth of approaches home educating families take. You can’t help but get the impression of a wonderful way to raise and educate kids. And you also get a sense of the LOVE. You wouldn’t get that in a school.
So I thought I’d put a few links on here so that parents visiting will get a reassuring idea of how well home schooling works and hopefully some of those ridiculous myths and misconceptions about it will be dispelled.
Here are some I’ve visited so far:
They are in no special order or preference, it’s just ones I’ve got round so far and if you’re doing one and want it displayed send me a link and I’ll add it. If you’ve contacted me before and I’ve forgotten you please get in touch. If there’s enough I could start a collection!
And hopefully I’ll get the links right this time and not make such a massive boob as I did when my kids were young!
