Over the last several weeks, I’ve gotten emails from many of you, asking about homeschooling, balancing homeschooling and work, and many other wonderful homeschooling-reated questions that we are going to start exploring here on the blog.
Here at Cheeky Bums, we talk about raising vintage kids in a modern world – and homeschooling goes hand-in-hand with our mission.
Homeschooling, in it’s very nature, takes us back to being family-centric and wisdom-focused.
However, there are many facets to homeschooling that we want to look at… and there may be a few myths that we’ll dispel along the way…
ahem. for example…
This morning, my kids and I snuggled under a blanket, drank hot chocolate by the fireplace, and read several chapters in Little House On The Prairie.
Yesterday at the same time, my 2nd grader was crying over her Math lesson. Again. My Kindergartner was cutting up 437 sheets of paper for no apparent reason and my almost-2 year old had stripped down to his diaper and was running through the house, screaming like a Banshee, wearing goggles and covered in yogurt from his breakfast. (I wish I was exaggerating…as you can see, I’m not…)
Obviously today went a little better than yesterday, but when you homeschool, you also roll with the punches (…and the crazies…)
Over the next few weeks (and maybe months, who knows?) we are going to be exploring the topic of homeschooling for those of you that have wondered if it really WAS possibly to school your children at home…
We’ll be looking at…
::homeschooling in small spaces
::homeschooling multiple children and children of various ages
::how to afford homeschooling
::is homeschooling for everyone?
::spending 24 hours a day with your children…
::homeschooling if you work outside the home
::homeschooling through high school
::homeschooling and socialization (yes, we do leave the house…)
– and more!
