School is in session here and we've gradually made the transition to full steam ahead this week. That means no mercy in a few areas!
Academics are not the real job of homeschooling. Building character is. Any wise crack can sit down and do a math lesson and get an A+. My goal is to help shape words, actions, and behavior based on timeless tried and true methods that are wrapped up in the Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated.
And let me say that your's truly can't just talk the talk but I have to walk the walk. Modeling it is everything.
Moms who's children attend public school have work to do, too. Sometimes I imagine it's more than mine. They have to battle so much more with their children being influenced 7 hours a day with people you don't know. It seems that the maintenance of preserving your values is a continual effort.
Either way, being a mom is hard work. For me, I have found my strength in my faith since the Bible has a lot to say about being a parent. It gives instruction that helps immensely and gives me the reason to get up every morning.
Stay the course!
