I Get To Teach Them What I’m Excited About!
A friend of mine told me that I would love homeschooling if I taught them and included them in the things that I’m excited about. I’m finding out that it’s true!
Here’s a good example: A couple of weeks ago we bought a juicer. I’m so excited about it because it’s one of those juicers that crushes the juice out and oh, it tastes so so good! Well, I took a nutrition class in college and have since forgotten which fruits and veggies are highest in which vitamins. I wanted to know so that we can target any sickness in our home. So.. The kids and I did some research and discovered which vitamins were highest in which fruits and veggies and we made a fun chart for us to use when we are choosing out fruit.
Now, this wasn’t torture because I’m totally interested and learning right along with them. They also love it because I’m excited and totally engaged.
So, if you’re ever in a slump, involve them in something you’re interested in. It’ll make all the difference in the world for you and for them!
