An Adventure in Homeschooling

During Christmas break, we pulled our ten-year-old daughter, M, out of a private school in Brooklyn because we decided it was doing her more harm than good. We have a younger daughter who goes to a great public school, and we decided to homeschool M for the remainder of the year and enroll her in September. I was terrified to make the leap, even for a short amount of time, because I’m in the midst of writing my second novel, but it felt like the right thing to do.
