    Are there any parents teaching more than one child in different grades? If so, how do you balance it?

    I am teaching a 5th grader and 1st grader this year. It can be stressful to be sure I'm giving them each the time they need, but we're doing ok so far. They both use Time4Learning. We have two computers so they start at the same time. My 1st grader takes a break after about 45 minutes and then I can give my undivided attention to my 5th grader for some of the more difficult stuff. Then we'll break for lunch and resume afterwards. I'll help the younger one while the older boy works on spelling and reading. All while a three year old runs around needing constant attention. It can be difficult but a schedule can make a big difference!
