      Dear Sangita,
       
      We are planning to shift to Coimbatore this June but are in Bangalore now. We are going to homeschool our kids once we reach Coimbatore. I have a son who is 15 years of age. Would love to know about your experiences in enabling your children as they all seem to be older kids. If you think this will be possible only face to face, I would love to meet you too. If an introductory mail can be sent by you and maybe by Vineeta who seems to be another parent who enables older children, it would be a lovely resource for the group. Others who have older children could also chip in as can parents with more than three children too...Questions like how can you learn together with 3-4 different keen minds of differing ages without compromising on anyone anytime...such questions do need to be tackled correcctly. I am going to try some things which I shall post on a mail as and when I carry out my plans. But if there are others, it would be lovely to learn about their experiences too. I find most home schoolers have younger children. They will get older soon and it would be a nice stepping stone for the parents when their children get to the 14-16 stage.
       
       
      warm regards
      Radha

      Hi Sum, Sathish and Sangeetha,
       
      We too live in Banaswadi Ext. area (Thyagaraj Layout), very close to Purva Park. We are homeschooling our three children aged 16 1/2, 15 and 10. Nice to know others too around here who are homeschooling as well.
       
      Regards,
      Sangita Vasuraj

      Hi,
      We stay in the Banaswadi area in East Bangalore almost midway between
      Frazer Town and Indira Nagar. We have a 3 and half yr olf boy who we
      plan to homeschool using the Unschooling method largely and
      incorporating the Montessori, Waldorf or eclectic methods.
      Would like to get in touch with other homeschooling fam,ilies in the
      area.

      Regards
      Sum
