“Learning can only happen when a child is interested. If he’s not interested, it’s like throwing marshmallows at his head and calling it eating.”

About Lisa

I live in South Africa with my husband and two small children, doing things, thinking about things and sometimes writing about them.

    Great image. But if I threw marshmallows at my kids that last thing I’d have to worry about would be them eating them!

    LOL. Kolya’s not big on marshmallows at this age. Though he has discovered chocolate. Still, like you say, it’s a great image. My aim is to drip-feed a trickle of home education propaganda to my friends and family so that if I do decide to home educate (and I have no idea how single parents do it), I won’t get treated as a reactionary hippie freak 😉 Nah, who am I kidding, of course I’ll get treated as a reactionary hippie freak…
