Sometimes the obvious isn’t always ‘the way it is.’
The Virginia Tech Tragedy: A Wake up Call to Every Parent’s Nightmare, 17 July 2007, Dr. Donna’s College Insider View
How does a parent handle this [insecurity]? Obviously, home schooling your child through graduate school is not an option and we can’t control every situation our kids will find themselves in.
For most of us (my family included), ‘homeschooling college’ isn’t the path the kids choose. But ‘homeschooling college’ past the teen years (or even during the teen years) isn’t an impossibility. One of the first books about homeschooling that I read was by Alexandra Swann.
Our family didn’t follow the same homeschooling path as the Swann family, but Alexandra’s book about her education was helpful.
I’m not encouraging (or discouraging) people from following Ms. Swann’s example, only ‘reacting’ to the item above that caught my eye in a Google alert.
