Teaching your child general knowledge of the world can become a bit of a grudging job for you but is also a great part of home education. But, have you considered what it is like for your child. His or her attention span is probably 20% of yours, so to sit down and listen to a list of facts or information is practically unbearable them.
Still, it is important that a child learn general knowledge about the world, so that they are more on the same page with the rest of society and able to function within that society with excellence.
