Re: Home schooling for Cruisers

Self educating your children:

If you want to do it you will read the "positive" posts and go away smiling.
If you do not want to do it you will read the "negative" posts and go away smiling.

Some learners seem to learn no matter where you put them and who "teaches" them.
Some learners don't seem to learn no matter where you put them and who "teaches" them.

If you do not have the skills you need (Literature, Science, Art, Music, Mathematics, Sociology etc.) then it might be best if you get some qualified help.

Me, I think an educator should be a trained professional, but many people home school with good results. And, if you are a world cruiser, with children on board, you might indeed finding yourself doing "Home Schooling", "Home Mechanical work", "Home Dentistry", "Home Surgery".

Good luck in your adventure.
