Finally it occurred to me. There is a way to get what we both want. What if soccer becomes the focus of our homeschool? I don’t mean drills and hours of PlayStation FIFA. I mean learning science, math, reading, writing, computers, and other needed skills by using soccer as the focus. Yes, I want him to have a well-rounded education, but right now the ‘what’ he studies can be secondary to the ‘how’ to learn and the foundational skills that he can develop.
