ranch, I don’t see the
I don’t see the problem. You seem to be educating them quite well. Parents are the primary educators and it would seem that you have a good grasp on that. Don’t doubt yourself. I would submit that travel abroad has tremendous educational value, far greater than a classroom setting. Take responsibility for their education and you’ll be surprised at how well you do. A homeschool curricula as suggested above would probably be valuable. It strikes me that you are locked into the public school, mass production, ‘classroom’ mindset and that’s limiting you.
As far as what they want to do, ultimately you are the adult and parent. Therefore the final decision is yours. Although they appear to be smart, they are also young and don’t possess the adult perspective that you bring to the process. Take their opinions into consideration and then make the decision on what’s best for them, not simply on what they want.
In a nutshell, I say go for it!!
P.S. BTW, I’m totally jealous of your opportunity to travel with your kids like that!
