    Default Dad School - professor Sua Sponte

    So I have 4 teenage boys who's school has been suspended for pretty much the remainder of the academic year.

    As many of you may know I have over several decades acquired a very valuable set of skills and experience.

    About a week ago I had a revelation that I was quite fortunate to be home and off rotation at the moment; so I decided to take advantage of this opportunity to impart many of those skills to my bored at home boys.

    Thus "Dad School" was born. Each day I take 3-6 hours to teach a new skill or topic. Including practical exercises and checks on learning. Each evening they receive a short reading assignment that we discuss the following day.

    Thus far everyone loves it!
    Cheers

    Reminds me of when I read Lone Survivor when it came out. Luttrell had a neighbor that ran some sort of boot camp operation during the summer for neighborhood kids and apparently many of them ended up as Rangers, Green Berets, Seals, or something along those lines.

    Good work.
