What is that one lesson that you just are not looking forward to teaching? Are there any subjects you just will not teach?

Why?

My kids started when they were in 4th and 6th grades. I didn't think it was the best plan to teach them as if they were in school but rather to facilitate them in learning how to learn. I would go over any lesson with them at any time but if they could do it own their own or be taught how that was better, IMO.

I absolutely hated grading though. When I had to grade. The worse things for me were Latin and upper math. I also had them to lab sciences at a local science museum because I didn't want to deal with the labs myself.

 How to drive! That is Hubby's class! I won't teach it! I had to teach myself how to do it because everyone that tried to teach me just made me more nervous & self conscious about it!

I struggle with teaching science, too. I just am not a real scientific person by nature, and I'm not too confident in my abilities to teach it. I am sure I'll feel the same about math in a few years when they are into more complicated stuff, too. We may have to outsource that. ;)

Writing and grammar, I can't stand it as much as my son can't.  It is going to be a PITA!

I hate history, so we use the American girl series, and the magic treehouse series.

OMG, that WAS the worst. It has ruined me. I'm now very uncomfortable with anyone driving. LOL

Honestly I can't think of anything.  I love teaching my kids everything that I know and then some.  I guess  if there is one thing I dread teaching them it is cooking.  I hate cooking.  Although their enthusiasm usually wins me over .  No matter how much I dislike cooking we usually have a great time together.

Haha, this is probably me too! Dd loves to cook but I get frustrated that she doesn't get it and it takes forever, but she wants to learn so I plan to add that in for her one night a week. DS hates cooking and says his wife will do it (which is hilarious bc DH cooks way more often than I do, lol), but I think he will also get one night a week to plan and make a meal, he's getting old enough.

But I hate cooking. Especially because we live with my mil so I feel like its not my kitchen :/

science.  we buy complete curriculum from timberdoodle and the kit doesn't come with a comprehensive science lesson.  i usually wing it and use things i find online, but i'm always worried that i'm missing something.  it's not difficult to teach, it's just difficult for me to figure out what to teach.

I hate writing and grammar, which is weird, because I love every other aspect of Language Arts. But teaching writing and grammar just does not come easy to me.
