Look deeper into the psychology and temptations of your particular students. Keep a “pedagogical diary” and record your thoughts. Then, share the results with your colleagues, academic team, or another homeschooling parent. Consider having your academic team do this together and then share the results and discuss at a team meeting. If you are a homeschool parent, consider sharing with your spouse or a homeschooling friend with similar philosophy of education.
