    Bravo Sangeetha & Hema.
    Here is something I wrote after listening to your interview on Radio One, particularly the incident of learning about multiplication in the bathroom.

    I am a mother of 13 year old girl child, right now studying in 9th standard. She is facing lots of problem in her school. My daughter is humiliated in school by teachers. We believe this is suppressing her and affecting her confidence and self-esteem.

    After i heard your interview, i want to know more about this.

    We are thinking of this concept of home schooling. My only concern is how to go about, with 10th and 12th. My daughter wants to be a Motivational trainer. So if she wants to pursue her studies abroad, how should i go about.

    Can anybody help me with this please.

    Good to know that their are like minded people, My son is 3 months old and I just wanted to know if there are any Books that gives complete idea about Home Schooling and Board Exams (10 std and 12th std). I just wanted guidance so, that my little boy can become who he wants to be.

    Thanks & Regards,

      the best option is to meet some homeschooler in your locality and discuss the matter. different people have different apporaches to hoemschooling so after discussing these things you can choose what fits you the best.

    I am located in Chennai. I have 2 kids 3 yr old daughter and a 6 yr old son. My son is very creative but i fear the schools in chennai will suppress his creativity forcing him to simply work with homework rather than helping him to understand the concepts.
