[Editor's Note: Have you ever struggled with making a decision on behalf of your child's best interests... only to realize that they should have some input and, in fact, they do have an opinion? Shocking! Idaho Dad at A Family Runs Through It recently had an experience like that with regard to the future of their homeschooling. I love when our kids teach us things in such simple ways. -Jenna]
His answer was clear and confident. “I want to continue homeschooling.”
The door that I’d left open suddenly started to close. Actually, it was more of a slam.
