I think you just have to be open to learning things as well. If your daughter is curious about something you help her to find out about it. My role was more research assistant than parent/teacher. And of course if she's interested in something that you have no skill in, for example ballet or fencing then you can look into her taking lessons. At the moment my son is learning Geometry online at the Khan Academy (great resource) he likes me to work with him, so we do it together and honestly sometimes I think I'm more of a hindrance. Frequently we are both learning at the same time. Funny thing is, the things that I'm really skilled at and could actually "teach" him don't particularly interest him. You just never know what will grab your kid's interest.
That sounds like a great way to learn. Most people cite the social aspect of schools as the main reason to attend school, even though they don't remember anything they learned academically. There are no homeschooling groups in my area, so wonder how it would work if everyone attends school except your own child.
rant.. why does everyone expect that all single women are looking for boyfriends/husbands? (okay, maybe not everyone... chinese people). They don't ask how you're doing in all other aspects of your life, as if nothing else is important and you can't live without a man. GR.
Why do people think it is so hard not to eat bread and cake?? You are not going to die if you never eat cake again really it is fine. Every pot luck at work for the past 2 years and it is the same people giving me sad looks. Going "I am so sorry for you." Like I lost a family member or something. I can't eat wheat/gluten. I am okay with it. No cake or cookie or bread or pasta is worth my hair starting to fall out again and constant joint pain. I realize they are trying to be nice but having the same conversation with the same people over and over again gets old quick.
In those situations that involve cakes, I usually accept a small piece and dig a fork in it. People don't notice if you don't take a bite. I think it's kind of rude to refuse birthday cake from the host.

Heh, my old boss still comes to our pizza meetings. He tracks me down and makes a loud scene every time, "hey you! holy crap, why no pizza?!" The first time he didn't believe me that pizza contains wheat...
I'm going to murder the shits I teach 6th period. Laziest, most disrespectful bunch of jackasses, I swear. Out of the entire class, I can see maybe 4 making it through their first semester of college. I'm waiting for 2 or 3 to be high school drop outs. The rest are fit for no more than execution. It would serve the world well if those genetic lines ended with them.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
My Dad has had a kidney removed and recurring malignant bladder tumors removed every three months for eight years. He insists that his diet sodas and cigars have absolutely nothing to do with it. Grrrrr!
I was looking for supplements a few days ago... Vitamin D with K2, only found K1, is that as good...? When I saw something that really ticked me off.
It as a cinnamon supplement. I'm like What. The. Hell? Why do we need a cinnamon supplement? We can just eat it with our food. It tastes great! Goes well in smoothies, curries and soups! If you're eating SAD it's STILL easy! Goes well in oatmeal, on toast, on practically any breakfast cereal! There's even Cinnamon Toast Crunch, it does in fact have cinnamon in it! Why does this even exist?!?
Just my annoyance of the day. XD
