Love your child.
Realize their interests.
Write them notes.
Take advantage of
Allow discipline to rule your family.
Expect them to like to read if they don’t.
Get hung up on spelling.
Try 50 million curriculums.
Forget to have fun!
I have been homeschooling for almost 7 years. (IF you count preschool and you know we all want to!)
This is what I have learned
~ We get too caught up in what other hsers are doing.
~We are suckers for comparing!
~We think we must buy and try everything out there
~ hsing curricula has become a market!! (or is that a racket?!?!)
* I wrote this list three years ago, and I have to say that I haven’t changed my mind about it. Well, maybe the do about phonics… that is still up for debate. I think two of my kids might learn better with whole words.
So what about you? What would you add to the list? I’m curious to read your list!!
And I know I have not added any pictures or details from Grace’s mission trip to Jamaica! It’s coming though, along with an interview. Suffice to say, they had a truly blessed experience, and I thank you for your prayers, good wishes and support for this adventure for her.
