In the homeschool environment, parents and children must successfully function as teacher and student. For many families the two roles are so intertwined that there is a very fine line divides family time and classroom time.
When structured learning is creatively disguised as family communication, children learn that their parents love them, care about them, respect their opinions and take pride in discussing the day-to-day operations of academics, family life and other topics. In fact, many homeschool families have very little that they will not discuss openly with one another (considering their age, of course).
As your child prepares for the high school homeschool curriculum, it is important that he or she also learn to think more independently and responsibly for his or her own education. This is an important and valuable skill for the transition into adult life and becoming an independent thinker in the adult world.
