It’s funny…even after I had my first child I had never desired to homeschool. I still don’t. Nothing against those who do, in fact I greatly admire moms who choose to homeschool, but I would never do it myself.
That being said, my home and my family are very much like a school. Everything can be turned into a lesson. My kids are always learning and discovering new things.
My 2 year old has picked up a lot of things really early and really quickly. She learned her alphabet and numbers well before she turned two. She likes it when my husband or I write letters or numbers on her white board so she can name them. One day, I went upstairs to discover that my husband was teaching her the Greek alphabet.
I definitely believe that parents are a child’s primary teachers in life. It’s our responsibility to teach them the whys, whats, whos, wheres and hows of life, the world and our faith.
