Two Sides to Every Coin

Home educating is not without challenges. Let’s face it, there are days when it can just wear us down. How many times have you thought: Homeschooling is tough because…...

“There’s so much to do!”
The flip side: Homeschooling is great, because while our children are still at home, we get to re-prioritize our lives and let go of activities with lesser importance and lesser value....

“It’s so easy to feel inadequate when we look at what other homeschoolers are doing, and what their children are achieving.
”The flip side: Because we can spend a whole afternoon with another family, or go on a picnic or a camping trip together, we also have time to see the realities in each others’ lives. We see that we each have strengths and we each have struggles. Knowing this we can also help each other, affirm each other, and share with each other....

“We feel the weight of responsibility for our children’s education.
”The flip side: Ask any parent whose child slipped through the cracks at an institutional school, while we take on this large responsibility, we also gain the opportunity to find the most effective ways to teach our children.

The next time you find yourself focusing on the challenges of homeschooling rather than the benefits, remember, there are two sides to every coin. Take another look. Often times, the flip side is much more interesting!
