Do you ever feel like you are experimenting on your children? You add this and that to your mad science mixture and hope that when the green fog clears you end up with an educated child. You’re not alone. Homeschooling your children can feel like that. In the early years of homeschooling, it’s good to remember that teaching your children is a learning process for them and you. While in that learning process, remind yourself that homeschooling is different from public school.
One of the ways it’s different is that you are in charge. Maybe that doesn’t sound like rocket science, but it’s a monumental idea. You decide what your children need to learn. You decide when they need to learn it. You have all the freedom and all the responsibility. Often the responsibility weighs heavy on us. Here are some tips to help you see that your responsibility can mesh with your freedom into one glorious mad science mixture that bubbles into success.
