Not obviously relevant to homeschoolers but living in a foreign country with kids who are mixed ethnically and culturally I find myself thinking a lot more about culture, race and ethnicity in the context of raising my kids. The Triple Package is a very thought provoking read, I’ve made reference to it more than once in my blogging here. When you become responsible for your child’s education you start to think about what you want the end result to be, what success is and what kind of person your child will grow up to be. It’s made me think a lot about these questions – things you just don’t have to think about so much when you send your child to school.
Amy Chua’s first book ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother’ was pretty engrossing too.
