Socialization & Home-schooling / I Don’t Like Jake In Sales, Make Him Move His Desk

For me, being a homeschooling parent having finished “normal” school it’s important and interesting to get feedback from people who’ve been “on the other side”. So when Jo made a comment on my blog about being homeschooled I immediately asked her if she would be willing to share her experience, her thoughts on my blog. I truly enjoyed reading Jo’s first guest post. A fantastic take on what teaching and learning is all about, if you’d ask me…

I’m very happy to welcome Jo, blogging at Jo Robin Blog, here as one of my guest bloggers and I can’t wait to read her series of guest posts. Please head over and check out her great blog where she shares her life as a college student and so much more…

I’m so glad that Jo is writing about this very subject and I truly hope you give her some good constructive feedback here.

Her post was different than what I hoped for. Not in a bad way. In a really good way actually as she mentioned something which was always so important to us: Although our kids are different, I don’t want them to feel different!
