I’m new to your company, and am transitioning from a very unstructured unschooling approach to something more structured. I have an 11-year-old son who is very bright, catches on quickly to things, reads voraciously, but has been unschooled. I’m looking at your complete curriculum packages, and am thinking I might choose the 5th grade package for him . . . but I’m not sure exactly how to make the decision.
I’m wondering, though, about what feels to me like an increasing number of DVD/computer-style resources that “replace” parental involvement (like Sequential Spelling). Yes, homeschooling parents are busy, but isn’t spending time with your kids as they learn a major part of the whole point? What is your perspective on this?
