home schooling 真这么牛吗? 湾区父母生的10兄妹,全部在13岁前跳级上大学(图)


根据《每日邮报》(Daily Mail)报道,哈汀与奇普(Kip)这对夫妇从高中念书时就开始交往,步入社会后结婚,并先后诞下10名小孩。家中的每一个孩子都在13岁前就考取大学入学资格。他们的大女儿17岁就从蒙哥马利(Montgomery)奥本大学(Auburn University)毕业,并且取得数学学士学位,家中年仅11岁的老么则是在去(2020)年通过大学入学考试,家里的小孩已有8名兄弟姐妹,在16岁左右的年纪就从大学毕业。


不仅如此,这些孩子除了在学业上的成绩优异之外,事业上更是有非凡的成就,排行第六的儿子,在去年考取律师资格,年仅19岁就成为阿拉巴马州最年轻的律师,其他兄弟姐妹也担任一些让人羡慕的职业,像是医师、火箭设计师、建筑师等。


儘管拥有如此成就,哈汀却坚持自己的小孩「不是天才」,她认为小孩能有这样的成绩,是因为他们夫妻俩坚持「在家教育」,哈汀认为「在家上学的本质非常高效,比到学校上课还要有效率,而且任何人都做得到」。也因此哈汀与其丈夫正致力于推广「在家教育」,不仅受邀到美国各地进行演讲,也提供有兴趣的家庭谘询服务,并且写了一本名为《The Brainy Bunch》的书详述在家教育的方法与技巧。


Parents home schooled all 10 of their children into university by 13 years old

A ‘brainy bunch’ family in the US has mastered home schooling, with all 10 children starting university the same year they became teenagers.


High school sweethearts Monalisa and Kit Harding, both 53, have made a name for themselves as home schooling experts after getting their 10 children through high school and university all before 18.

Their oldest Hannah, now 34, became a child prodigy in maths when she got her bachelor’s degree from Auburn University, in Montgomery, at the age of 17.

Monalisa and Kit also raised the youngest-ever lawyer – their sixth child Seth Harding, now 20, who qualified through university and professional exams at just 19. More

The family from San Jose in California have recently celebrated their youngest, 11-year-old Thunder, passing his entrance exams for university.

When he starts he will join his older sister Lorennah, 13, who is in her second year at Bellevue University.

Reaching these impressive milestones so early has become commonplace in the Harding family – as every single one of the children has started university by the time they turn 13.

The Harding kids have all gone on to become doctors, architects and even spacecraft designers.

But Monalisa insists her kids are not ‘geniuses’, crediting the effectiveness of home schooling and her children’s hard work for their success.

The mum said: ‘The nature of home schooling is so efficient – anyone can do it.

‘It’s just about parents dedicating the time to get it done and prioritising their children’s education above all else.

‘We’re not a wealthy family. We had to make sacrifices so that I had the time to teach each of them individually.

‘When you raise kids in an environment where home schooling and hard work is the norm, then, as they grow, they’ll naturally adapt to it and take it in their stride.

‘They all worked and continue to work extremely hard, which is why they’re breaking new ground every day – I couldn’t be more proud of them.’

Monalisa and Kit, a military man who now works in government, also help other parents who want to start home schooling their own children.

They have spoken at several conferences all over the US and have travelled as far as Japan to share their experience.

‘It’s really fulfilling because we put our hearts and souls into our children, and knowing people admire that and want to do the same is a really great feeling,’ Monalisa said.

早几年上大学,为啥那么重要?让娃小时候多瞎玩几年,估计在牛爸牛妈眼里,是浪费生命吧。

你说错了,恰恰相反,homeschooling 最大的好处是孩子们可以跟着父母全世界旅行,小孩子的阅历比一般小孩好多了。当然楼主这个10个小孩的,是另外的故事。

娃成功以后他们的生意也上来了。
