Homeschoolers love to compare their lives with one another. Its one of the more confusing lifestyles to settle into, so I find that most of us spend or first years peeking over the proverbial fence to see what everyone else is doing before we either quit or settle into our own home-school skin.
I was blessed to sit and visit with a group of about 12 home-school parents this morning. It was so refreshing. There's something magical about sitting and visiting over coffee and treats.
I was reminded that each and every family in a unique and amazing self-contained unit.The important thing is that we settle into what works for our own families in the current season of life that we are walking through at this moment in time.
Here are some of the differences between the homeschooling families I sat with this morning:
Some children never lift a finger around their home, some are paid to make their beds, some have a whole list of to do tasks to be completed. Some people believe that chores are a necessity while standing next to someone who believes chores are cruel.
Some families have art easels where a television would typically be found. Some allow their children to "coupons" to buy TV time. There are families who only watch on the weekends and some have no television boundaries in their homes.
Some people eat out more than 4 times a week, some never eat anything unless it is prepared in their own kitchen. Some kids learn to cook when they are 5, and some of us have to wait until we are grown up and on our own to learn how to boil water.
Some homeschoolers try to duplicate a traditional classroom atmosphere (even building mini school rooms to occupy 5 days a week) whereas some kids are left to govern their own days and learn as they go through discovery and failure/success. Some homeschoolers buy textbooks, worksheets, quizzes, and tests, others use their local library as their curriculum, and some create their own.
Some kids complete an endless chain of worksheets, note taking, and written response questions while other homeschoolers are covered in dirt as they build their own catapults in their backyard.
We are all so uniquely and wonderfully made. No two home-school families are alike.
The important thing is that we take the time to discover who "we are" and then blossom with our kids. No one can really tell you how to home-school your kids.
You know what they need to work on (not any particular worksheet, but maybe learning to read or master their math facts).
Take what makes you and your children unique and allow yourself to grow into the best you can be.
Definitely spend time with other homeschoolers, either in person or on-line, and get to that place where there is open sharing.
Glean ideas, tips, projects and encouragement that you want to incorporate into your life and let go of the rest. Every year, things will change. That's OK. Actually that's the beauty of home-school.
