    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.

    Hi all. My son is 10 years old and in grade 5 at a cbse school currently. He is being taxed with quite a lot of homeworks. But, the gk he receives is near to 4 out of 10. So, i was thinkig homeschooling. But, dont have any idea about it. I would really appreciate if anyone shed some light on this.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    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.
    Thanks
    Vidhyaa

      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.

    Hi,

    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.

    Hi, we are going to be relocating to goa next year with our sons, who will be 15 and 13. We’re
    Concerned that our boys won’t cope in a very ridgid school setting and anyway one of our main reasons for relocating is to get away from that kind of pressure. Nothing set in stone about where exactly but possibly north goa, but it’s got to be right for our boys too. I just wanted to see
    if there are any families with kids who are homeschooled who are in the same age range.
