The Rouse Family
I have always loved science and math. My husband and I both attended North Carolina State University. He majored in software engineering and I in accounting. We are a tech family, and usually have a phone, tablet, or computer nearby to research something.
We are a unique homeschool family for several reasons, but the main reasons are our family size and technology focus. My husband and I have a six-year-old and three-year-old triplets. We embrace technology and science, and our kids learned to use iPads before they could speak or walk. We don't usually tell people that because they will assume our kids will never read or write, but that has not been the case. My oldest read by the age of three and my triplets are themselves close to learning to read. Their handwriting is also age appropriate. For our home school, electronics have helped us introduce and teach concepts and subject matter. We build on that foundation every year by incorporating new technology into their lessons. Once we complete the lessons, we take field trips, which allow the kids to ask questions and experience their education in the “real world.”
We have not followed any set rules for home schooling, but rather, we have followed the child.
