Veteran Home-Schooling Dad

Emerson, age 8: "Dad, can you help [6-year-old] Reagan?"

Me: "Son, you can help her. You know your ABCs and 123s. You teach her. I've got confidence in you."

So, my 8-year-old son is now a kindergarten teacher.

In case you're wondering, the reason Reagan is still in kindergarten is that she's a genius and so darn cute, she thinks she can slide by on her cleverness, good looks and irresistible charm. I don't know where she gets that . . .


  1. If not her mon -- I dont either.

  2. You mean cleverness, good looks, and irresistible charm AREN'T all that anyone needs for a successful career in politics?
    I love the name Reagan. Been thinking about it for my next, since it's a great name for either sex. Plus, my in-laws are Democrats...
    So cool to meet another homeschooling parent!

  3. My wife is a teacher and the latest teaching technique (Everything old is new again) is the pairing of students.
