Golden line equations and other mathematical ideas discussed with our 9yo who adores maths. Tell me again I can’t homeschool because I can’t ‘teach’ my children anything. He knows more now than a school could ever offer him imo.
Meanwhile the 6yo, who has no interest in me reading to him from children’s books, has started wanting to read alongside me when I read. He loves to learn new words, coercion and brainwash are his latest words. We don’t actually read a great deal, its more highlighting words, understanding the meaning and context. His comprehension is fantastic and he is so open to learning. He can read a little and says he is ready to learn to read so there is no need to ‘teach’ or force him to learn.
The 12yo has adult conversations, understanding many issues and though not experienced in life too much yet, she is incredibly observant about people and events.
