  1. Hi Avivah, I was wondering if you, and everybody else out there, could share your thoughts on this question: We have two small children very close in age that we are thinking about homeschooling. Although we don’t want to box them into categories and will of course see how they develop, we suspect one is going to be an artistic soul and the other very academically inclined. An obvious advantage of homeschooling is honing their individual strengths, but we also don’t want their relationship to be damaged by competitiveness when they differ. What do you think? Thanks!
