Here in the United States, we’re seeing massive school closures across the country due to COVID-19. Colleges and universities have moved to online instruction, and most K-12 schools have been closed for the time being.
My daughter’s school, for now, is doing distance learning. Her teacher records “welcome” videos each morning and talks about the assignments for that day. My daughter is then able to complete and turn them in online. This has made the transition to homeschooling parent incredibly easy for me! I also appreciate the fact she is home with me and safe from potential exposure at school. (I had actually pulled her out of school before we learned it would be closing.)
Have you suddenly found yourself schooling at home as well? Does your child’s school (or your school, if you’re attending college) have curriculum posted, or are you coming up with learning content yourself? Are you enjoying this break from traditional schooling, or are you realizing all the reasons you never became a schoolteacher in the first place?

None of the above.
But I thought I’d share some beautiful video’s with you about, what I think, is The fine Art of Home Schooling.
Just watch Paul Barton, an artist living in Thailand, who schools his little daughter Emilie together with his wife amidst the Elefants. Watch him share his passions for pianoplaying, painting, sculpture and nature with his daughter for whom this is all a natural process.
He recently shared some compilation video’s with takes from her entire 5 years.
There are more gems to be found there. So, if you want to get inspired in home-schooling: this is a place to start!
Cheers and good health,
