All Kinked Up or Kinkless and Proud?
We are slowly getting underway with our high school homeschooling this year. We have had a late start due to so many family situations pulling us in different directions. Of course one of the beauties of homeschooling is being able to go with the flow…being flexible and creative, right?
It doesn’t matter if you are new to homeschooling or if you are a seasoned veteran, kinks happen. My unschooling daughter has been transitioning back to using an online curriculum this year. She didn’t totally give up unschooling at all, but is trying to get used to signing in and working on lessons in a timely manner. I must say she needs to work a bit harder at it. She does enjoy the online lessons though and likes the grown-up feel to them, especially the video lessons.
When your child is at one with unschooling it can be problematic to adjust to a semi-regular style of schooling. Her heart takes her back to unschooling activities more than it takes her to traditional lessons even though she knows why she needs to complete the traditional lessons. I guess you can say we are “all kinked up” at this point! I know with time our kinks will be worked out, but neither of us are good at playing the waiting game.
So how would you classify your homeschool year so far? Is is “All Kinked Up” or are you “Kinkless and Proud” ?
