I began to research how children learn, particularly children like Archie who are highly sensitive, bright and inquisitive, but lack essential classroom skills: sitting still, concentrating and listening.

Join local home ed Facebook groups and attend some meet ups so you can ask questions. If you take the plunge, prepare to face doubters with confidence. Prepare also to have the occasional wobble yourself. Create a learning-rich environment for your children: have loads of books, art and craft supplies and games available so that when they have an idea for an activity, you can make it happen.
Above all, trust in the process. Your child learnt to crawl, walk, talk, and question, simply by interacting, watching and trying.
