My best dozen pieces of homeschooling advice (from simple homeschool)

Adopted from simple homeschool

  1. Read aloud every single day.
  2. Don’t get distracted by what someone else is doing.
  3. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don’t compare your kids to others.
  4. Get outside.
  5. Be nice.
  6. Take trips.
  7. Don’t try to control your environment by controlling your kids.
  8. Let your kids get dirty.
  9. Don’t box them in with labels.
  10. Remember that children are, indeed, wonderfully and fearfully made.
  11. It’s much more important to show love to my child than to finish the math book.
  12. Enjoy them.
I especially like Albert Einstein's quote:
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.
