-- The recent pandemic and the school closures that ensued have forced many parents to re-think their children's education, turning to homeschooling as they weather the unknown. As parents get down to the nitty-gritty of the day-to-day schoolwork routine, it is common for new homeschoolers to ask themselves, "What am I doing? How can I possibly keep this up?" And the most heart-wrenching of them all, "Am I going to ruin my child?"
Knowing that new home educating parents will ask themselves these very questions, Senior Editor for The Old Schoolhouse© Magazine,
Deborah Wuehler, addresses these concerns and shares practical advice, along with timely encouragement, to parents, reassuring them that they are not only up for the task of home educating their children, but have already set their children up for success just by choosing to homeschool.
"You are giving them the freedom to learn in their own unique ways, to develop passions for ideas and knowledge, and nurturing their curiosity. You are answering their questions—no matter how many," says Wuehler. She goes on to explain, "You are the expert in their sleep patterns, their nutrition, and their physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and academic needs. You are the expert!"
