Default Re: What is your best advice for a new homeschooler?

Try to remove your pre-conceived notions of what learning looks like, what children "should" be learning at various ages, and try to dismiss the expectations of others. Most of the great minds throughout history learned at home, slowly, with a patient parent or tutor who allowed ideas to develop in their own time.
