A is for answers. As a new parent, you become the “answer man” for your young child. (“What’s that thing? Why is it raining? Where does the sun go at night?” etc.) But as a homeschooling parent, you’ll become your children’s source of answers for the foreseeable future (at least until they learn how to look up facts and other information). This will be a key part of your job description, so find a way to make peace with it! Eventually, your children will learn to find answers for themselves. In fact, by the time they’re adults, you’ll be flattered when they actually ask for your opinion 🙂 Until then, embrace your status as “answer (wo)man”!
