Keys for Kids

Parent Minute

I never thought I’d ever homeschool my kids.

Posted on 9/29/2020 by Greg Yoder

The COVID-19 pandemic has created educational uncertainty. Many parents were given choices to send kids to school with masks, deal with online education, or take up homeschooling. Here are tips given to me by homeschool moms. Don’t try to replace the school setting. Not all home schooling looks the same. Not every lesson comes from books. Teach age appropriate life lessons. Cooking, laundry, simple home repair. Be organized, yet flexible. And don’t forget spiritual training. How do we do this when we have a full-time job? Well, it’s possible. Opposite shifts with spouse, maybe? Self-directed books, online classes, and/or co-ops may be your only options. We are our kid’s best teachers.

Suggested Reading: Deuteronomy 6:6-7 Isaiah 54:13
