Today I have a guest post up on Velvet Ashes, an online community for women serving overseas. In my post I share some of what I learned from homeschooled TCKs while researching for Misunderstood. There are a few stats and quotes from the book, as I discuss how loneliness can negatively affect homeschooled TCKs – and how parents can help.
As I have mentored and interviewed TCKs, I have seen over and over that parents have the power to dramatically impact their child’s experience.
Homeschooling may be academically daunting at times, but a parent’s engaged and supportive presence makes a huge difference.
Homeschooling may be socially isolating at times, but parents can lead the way in providing access to and encouraging engagement with peers.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please head over to Velvet Ashes to read the full article and comment there.
