So, we are just about to start week three of our home learning and what a rollercoaster it has been so far. The age gap between my kids hasn’t really helped at all– having an eager 2-year-old and not so eager 6-year-old has had its challenges!– but I have slowly been working through this and trying my best to find the best balance I can in this very strange situation. So, what I have learnt? Other than that Pluto is no longer a planet?! I have learnt this about attempting to be a home learning parent… Continue reading “5 Things I Have Learnt From Attempting To Be a Home Learning Parent”
