I was homeschooled for eight years, from age 11 through to college, before it was a novel way for tiger parents to show off their dynamic commitment to their children’s education. Photo by Annie Spratt/UnsplashHomeschooling is at once traditional, radical, empowering, frustrating, revealing and, most importantly, not quite any of the above. Spending very long stretches of time with my parents (I’m an only child) was both the most trying and also the most positively formative part of being homeschooled. And you’ll realise this only thanks to all the frustrations, failures and annoyances that you and your kids encounter. Of course you’re finding homeschooling tough – you’re trying to do it alongside your day job!
