Ways We Have De-stressed Our Home
Many things can cause disharmony in our homeschools. I’ve come up with a few ideas that might be able to lower your “stress meter.”
You know the questions people ask about socialization, but are they saying that the public school children have the best social skills of all the children in the world? I certainly hope they don’t believe that.
These questions stem from the misconception that we learn our social skills in classrooms full of peers, run by government institutions. But do the public school children have time during class to socialize? Or is that after school and during after-school activities? Since we, as homeschoolers, spend less time in actual class, then we have 4 or 5 more hours in a day for social activities than those in the traditional classroom!
- The primary danger of the television screen lies not so much in the behavior it produces as the behavior it prevents. … Turning on the television set can turn off the process that transforms children into adults.
I hope you have found something here that will make your homeschool less stressful. Remember, God loves your children even more than you do. You may have days when you feel like you cannot keep up with the task of homeschooling, but there is never a second when God isn’t up to it.
