Yes, there’s a whole bunch of complicated academics that needs to be done before graduation!
Bad news: Most of the actual “stuff” your child learns they will never use. I haven’t used algebra since my final exam on the subject in college (sophomore year).
Good news: If you teach your child that academic stuff and in the process teach them how to manage their time, manage their tasks, use their creativity, and solve problems it really doesn’t matter what their grades are, they will have the core skills they need to be successful.
If you manage to teach them responsibility and how to build great relationships as well they are going to be successful and make a difference in the world. Make sure that no matter what you’re teaching, you’re teaching that stuff.
The rest is just details.
