Today Reggie took a final exam in his college Sociology class. It was obviously so hard, that the entire class had to come together just to pass.
Well, not exactly.
You see, “back in my day”, that was considered cheating. However, these days, it seems to be common practice.
Economist Peter Schiff was just telling this story with his son, on a recent podcast. As he was driving his young man to school, he was flabbergasted that this son knew the questions that were going to be on the upcoming test, had the answers, etc., all sanctioned by the teacher. Today, I know exactly how he feels.
Now, I understand that I’m not a certified teacher nor am I up on all of the latest research on the best way students learn. But I do know that one of the most fearful parts about being homeschool parent is the pressure we put on ourselves to live up the school’s standards. It may not be the current standards used in education, but those standards that we remember when we [were] in school.
Therefore, allow me to suggest a few ideas that may help you with your anxiety if you are thinking about homeschooling in the upcoming year, or feeling bad that you are not living up to a particular standard.
