We’ve tried a number of different reading apps over the years, some paid, and some free, and right now my 6 year olds are using HOMER for their reading practice. We’ve been using it for about a month now, and it’s been a good addition to our homeschool toolbox.
We live in a hyper-connected world where people’s tragedies and struggles go viral, where we can be reached anytime, anywhere – by strangers as well as friends. While being informed and aware is a good thing, I fear that we are unwittingly hurting the mental health of our kids and young people – not to mention ourselves. We weren’t made for this.
