Admit it: as soon as you walked out of your last high school algebra class, you promptly stored all of that information in the “I don’t really need this” file and proceeded to forget every single bit of it. Pulling it back out to teach your kids is not only intimidating, it feels downright impossible! How are you supposed to answer their questions when you don’t even remember how to do it yourself? Or maybe you’re a math whiz, but the idea of trying to write a paper sends cold chills running down your spine. Maybe the last time you did research for anything that didn’t allow Google, you had a card catalogue and a massive headache trying its best to pound its way out of your skull. And what’s the verdict on Wikipedia these days, anyway?
The good news is, even if you feel completely and utterly overwhelmed by the material presented to your homeschooling child, there are options available.
