4 Moms of 35+ Kids Discuss Schedules and Homeschooling Done Poorly
Posted By Smockity Frocks On January 31, 2013 @ 8:48 am In Uncategorized | 11 Comments
The 4 Moms of 35+ Kids are discussing our daily schedules today.
You can see the details of how I came up with this master schedule for multiple homeschooled children , which provides time slots for each individual child.
Every day we try to stick to the schedule, but I can’t remember having a single day yet when everything gets done. For large homeschooling families, a schedule is a target to shoot for, more of a goal than a set in stone dictator of days.
My first thought about this is, “Who am I to judge the servant of another?” I do the very best I can with homeschooling my children, and I assume every other mother does the same.
There are days, or even years, when my best isn’t the same as, say, the year before.
I would say that if a mother is struggling with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, is living with an abusive spouse, or is a single mother who must work to pay bills, then there may not be much value in her homeschooling.
Otherwise, I think almost any other parent in almost any other situation can be an effective homeschooler if
I’m sure there are many homeschoolers (including me) who could be doing a more perfect job of teaching their children, just as there are many parents who could feed their children healthier foods, more strictly limit their viewing of television and video games, and encourage more physical fitness and deeper spirituality.
I really don’t feel like it is my place to judge the effectiveness or imperfections of another’s homeschooling abilities, and I would hope others don’t feel free to judge mine.
