Have you ever home schooled your child/children, or thought about it? Do you follow a paid curriculum; made your own; or just going with the flow?
I am home schooling my year 8 kid for the first time this year, and things are going amazingly well. We are located in Victoria and due to covid, with lockdowns and restrictions I believe the Education system failed many students. I know it became very difficult for teachers with preparing learning plans, and the use of online teaching systems – not their fault. There was a significant reduction in learning material available to keep students engaged. I have taken a break from working to home school this year, and will evaluate whether my kid will go back for year 9, or continue home schooling.

  • I commend you and glad its working out. I am way too impatient and have all the admiration in the world for you

  • I would really like to home school my kids but hubby is super against it. He thinks they’ll be socially awkward with not being around other kids their age etc. and also thinks that they’ll end up to be weirdos when they’re older as they won’t know how to communicate and engage with other people in real life and will just rely on social media but I don’t think so…?
    Would love to hear how it goes at the end of the year.

  • I would love to hear more articles on home schooling. I would like to read the day to day routine of what a child in homeschooling is. I have only herd people say minimum re this subject. Do the children in home school make a lot of friends,do they get invited to birthday parties and when do they complete their education.

  • I homeschooled my middle child and my youngest child. With my middle, I came up with the curriculum. Mostly because there weren’t resources for year 9/10 in 2018. There’s still not a lot, but I used complete education with my youngest.
    I prefer the unschooling method of letting their interests lead them to education, as long as they know the basics.
    It’s not for everyone and it really depends on what state you live in. I’m not familiar with the expectations of Victoria. As long as whatever activity you’re doing can link back to the required outcomes, you’re good.
    But, look online for resources for your child’s age group. the NESA website has some and there are so many fun sites for younger kids.

  • Only during lockdown and it definitely was not for us

  • Sorry I have no experience, wishing you success navigating your way !
