Bonding. Just another reason I love homeschooling. I love being around my children and I'm so thankful that we spend our days together. It's tough, it's challenging, it's (at times) stressful. It's worth it.
I'm not one of those people who think you must have a sit down, formal learning experience. I don't think you have to have work sheets and white boards and flashcards. I am one of those people who enjoy those things though! And it's what works for us and my kids learning styles! So, while Dad is upstairs teaching the girls Science (and then later History), Isaiah and I get to "do" preschool. Today was his first day! And he did great!
Bonding. This one on one time was amazing. It's hard to get one on one attention in our house- it seems like there's always someone around. Isaiah is my baby and I enjoyed spending time with him- just him- today.
How are you spending time and bonding with your children? Homeschooling or not, we should be making an effort to make sure every moment we spend with our children turns into a memory, a life lesson. We need to make our time with them count.
