Homeschooling
October 25, 2021

I feel like I am definitely not qualified to homeschool my kids. But, all of the stuff that they have missed out on while being in public school is awful. Public school is not teaching them how to type properly, cursive, times tables, or many other things that they should definitely know while going to school.

All of my kids just hunt and peck, but do not know how to type properly. I downloaded a program and have them learning. I talked to a friend of the family that is younger... and she was turned down for a job because she does not know how to type properly. How the fuck are the kids supposed to know how to function in a digital society, and not know how to type? That is basic, and easy. Why would it not be taught in school?

Cursive. Just why? Why not teach it?

I was helping my 12 year old with math, and she didn't know simple math. She had to count up how much was 6x8. So, we are working on times tables.

They are in 6th and 7th grade. And that is just the tip of the iceberg of things that they have not been taught.
