Every Homeschooler is DifferentApr 14th, 2008 | By Jessica Parnell | Category: General Homeschool Posts
And yet, so many homeschooling moms make the same mistake. We see a homeschooling family that looks so together and kids that look so sharp or we hear about the program they are using and it sounds so good that we decide we have to try it. In no time, we invest in something new or we borrow their materials and off we go.
But it doesn’t always work. We scratch our heads and we wonder why. Are we terrible teachers? Are our kids not as smart, artistic, disciplined . . . as those other kids?
Bottom line is, every kid is different. It is our challenge as parents to notice those differences, to pay attention to our kids’ talents, abilities, passions, bents . . . and find ways to work in and around those areas.
So resist the urge to compare; instead, focus on your kids, your homeschool program, your family, and your goals and watch as your kids begin to grow.
