Do you love using books and stories to help build character in your children but don’t always have the time or energy to read aloud to them? Read alouds with your kids can be so wonderful but I’m guessing that, like me, you have a long list of to-do’s and can’t always get to it. Audiobooks are such a great option as you can get a few minutes to breathe as you listen along with your children.
Are you starting to look into colleges with your homeschooled high schooler? While it may feel like an overwhelming task at times, thankfully there are some great college options for homeschooled children, including colleges that seek out homeschoolers.
Finding a writing curriculum that is a good fit for your homeschool isn’t always an easy task. For our own homeschool, writing is an area that I’ve struggled to find the right resources for my 9-year-old. We’ve tried a few different things that made me feel like I was just “winging it” and left me wondering if he was learning all that he could and should be.
It may seem that there is no need for a reading curriculum after your child learns how to read and is reading well on their own. However, there is so much more to reading than just knowing how to do it.
As parents, it can be frustrating when our kids show attitudes of ungratefulness and entitlement. We want them to express appreciation for the things they have and not complain about what they don’t have.
