Today I'm writing over at Simple Homeschool about my biggest homeschooling mistake. Though it is a homeschooling post, I'm sharing here because I think it's a mistake that is common to us as mothers no matter where our children go to school--just in our day to day role as parents.
From my post:
"I began my homeschooling career like many of you: with a whole host of stereotypes and a conveyor belt education hangover. I believed I wasn't fully equipped to teach my children and that a system knew what they needed better than I did.
Even though I dared, as many of you have, to venture out on this path--I carried my baggage with me. As a result, I wanted to homeschool the "right" way. I desperately didn't want to fail my children or screw up their education, their socialization, their lives!
So I read some really good books about homeschooling, searched for the ideal curriculum, and turned down the dial on my inner intuition.
But something didn't feel right.
