I have had a busy but enjoyable day today.
Emily seems to be coming down with something again and has not been feeling well all day and is hot to touch but is feeling cold and shivery. She has gone to bed with two water bottles as she said she needed to warm up and wouldn't settle.Alan will take them out once she goes off to sleep so she doesn't over heat.
I have worked through the doubts of the last few days and feel confident again about our approach with Emily's education.
I thought back to the little girl who came out of school and the change in her today is like night and day.In all the information I have read about home schooling and unschooling in particular it seems that allowing children to read at their own pace,without pressure and when they are ready whatever age that may be enables a child who has difficulty to find their own way.
I feel lighter and have been much more relaxed since I confronted the fears I was having.
