Homeschooling a Dad – my daughter’s perspective

As I thought she would, my Thing I has posted on her blog about her perspective on our first week or so of homeschooling.

“This week was my first full week of homeschool. It’s quite overwhelming to think about the fact I am an official homeschooler… but I’m dealing with it.

So how am I feeling?

There’s excitement, I’m a lot freer than I used to be, even though I’m still very busy. The freedom is both internal and external.

Internally, I’m less stressed. I’m enjoying life. My head is above the water again. Externally, I’m getting back into the hobbies I’d lost, although I have yet to recommence dancing.”

About D K Powell

British freelance journalist, author, writer, editor, musician, educational consultant. I lived with Wifey, Thing I (daughter) & Thing II (son) in Bangladesh for 5-6 years working for an NGO called LAMB. Wifey led the Hospital Rehab department and I used to teach O levels at the school before going full-time as a freelance writer in 2013. Now we're back in the UK learning how to be British again. When not writing or editing, I'm busy trying to complete a Masters degree in Intercultural relations in Asian Contexts and reading way too many books at once. I also drink tea - lots of it.
