    As a result of this post, I’ve learned that Kim and Mrs. Du Toit are homeschoolers. Mrs. Du Toit has penned an excellent essay on why they became homeschoolers. It’s long but an absolute gem. My favorite line:

    You can read every child psychology and child development manual out there, but it still does not prepare you for the reality of your own child. You become a parent through trial and error, with way too many errors. I had secretly decided when Wendy was about 2 that the best I could hope for was to see her through to adulthood and offer to pay for her first two years of psychotherapy.

    I’ve added both Du Toits to the blogroll.
