Life Is All about Learning And Gaining Knowledge

Image result for quotes children learning

I’m a homeschooling mom. Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is not. But what I learned from this experience is, that life in itself is all about learning and gaining knowledge. The world is nothing more than an oversized classroom. An oversized classroom in which we will always be students and teachers at the same time.

Once A Homeschooler, Always A Homeschooler: No Bitter Feelings

For me, being a homeschooling parent having finished “normal” school it’s important and interesting to get feedback from people who’ve been “on the other side”. So when Jo made a comment on my blog about being homeschooled I immediately asked her if she would be willing to share her experience, her thoughts on my blog. I truly enjoyed reading Jo’s first guest post. A fantastic take on what teaching and learning is all about, if you’d ask me…

I’m very happy to welcome Jo, blogging at Jo Robin Blog, here as one of my guest bloggers and I can’t wait to read her series of guest posts. Please head over and check out her great blog where she shares her life as a college student and so much more…

Teachers And Students

No, this post is not about school. And yet it is. All of us have been students and most probably still are. We never stop learning and we never stop learning and being inspired by what surrounds us. We all have been teachers too. In one way or the other. Some of us more than others but I bet that if you think about it you will come up with things that you taught someone at some point, no matter how old you are.

Think!

I’m a mom. I’m a mom that wants the best for my children. I’m a mom that believes that every child deserves the best. I’m a mom that believes everyone who’s involved in teaching a child something has the responsibility to give his or her very best to provide the kids with the best possible opportunity, teaching and training. And I’m a mom that gets angry when I witness that this is not done properly.

For Our Unique Children…

I couldn’t agree more!

But I Smile Anyway...

When I read this for the first time, it hit a nerve, so close to my heart. I printed it off, and put it in my classroom at the time.
All children are unique, they grow into unique adults. If they were all to achieve the same successes, and excel at everything they did, what a boring world we would live in … It’s good that some kids are good at maths, or literacy, and others are great in sport, or the arts. We need those strong in the sciences too, but they don’t have to be top in everything!
Equally we shouldn’t compare them… Two best friends might be polar opposites, academically, and in personality, but their two different halves, make a fantastic whole… Don’t spoil it by comparing them, and playing one off the other, so their friendship inevitably suffers…

Let’s love our children for what they are…

Let’em Watch TV

Being a homeschooling mom I am constantly around my kids. Day in, day out. Sometimes it is like a walk in the park and sometimes it is hard work. Kind of like a normal job. You have your good days and your bad days. Even during the hard days I truly enjoy having them around. It is not their company that makes it hard, it is keeping them entertained after they are done with their lesson. It is tricky to not just park them in front of the TV or a device but rather have them do something that makes sense. I have mentioned before in my post that our kids do a lot of after school activities with other kids. And that kind of helps of course. Still there are a few hours to fill, which seem long on certain days. So how keep them entertained and keep them doing something they get something out of? Kids, homeschooling and TV, apparently a common mix. And a mix a lot of people have an opinion about…
