I was attending a homeschool conference where the speaker was giving facts on how many Olympiads raised children that became Olympiads themselves. The point the speaker was making is that children are a lot like their parents. So whenever my husband says, “What is with our kids and math?” I remind him that we were late bloomers.
On one hand, our children will be like us and we shouldn’t have unrealistic fantasies for expectations. However, they are also a unique individual and homeschooling gives them the opportunity to explore personal interest. God uses ordinary people for extraordinary circumstances, not just straight A students.
