From Kelly Crawford’s blog Generation Cedar – Homeschooling Q&A Part 2: “Am I Qualified to Teach My Child?”
“I’m thinking of homeschooling and have a question: How do you teach a subject that you personally struggled with? I’m not sure I have the skills it would take…” Tonya
This question ranks right up there with the socialization question in terms of fears parents have about homeschooling. This fear is absolutely unwarranted, and I’ll try to peel back the several layers to show why.
We’ve been brainwashed by the system to think that education can only happen when an “expert” or someone really good at a subject, transfers that expertise to another person. Actually, this is a very inferior way to learn.
