Sometimes you don’t realize the truth about something until you stop doing it and start doing something else, instead. This was the case with me. When my kids were in school, I knew something was off. I knew I felt like a secondary parent, but I also knew that this must be normal since everyone else was doing it, too, right?
Wrong. The reality is that I never realized the full extent of how restrictive school was for us until we started homeschooling.
