"Am I Really Qualified To Teach My Own Children?" Some Thoughts on This Common and Provocative Question.
Prystowsky, Richard J.
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n5 p46-49 Sum 2000
A home schooling father and college professor describes the personal traits of a good teacher: a willingness to engage in child-led learning; genuine humility and compassion; the inner security to teach others freely; a willingness to learn, often from students; and patience. Parents who wish to isolate their children from the world or force-feed them need not apply. (TD)
