My son is living at home again now and has chosen to do home school with his sister. Wow what a challenge for me year 11. I didn’t do too well the first time I tried it 🙂 They’ve both started off well. I’m happy with the first week. They’re both keen to learn and they like their books and what we’re planning to do for the term. It’s exciting to learn things together and also to plan together what we can work on and achieve. My son is teaching himself some programming. He’s starting off with a book on the basics of computer programming 🙂 I’ve never seen him read so much before!!! It’s great what personal motivation does.
Both the children come with me to work now and help with the running of the Teen Challenge drop-in centre as well as helping teaching computing classes, fixing computers, admin etc. Jessica is now a junior trainee as well as a TC volunteer!
