This podcast is based on a detailed interview I gave, the link is above. In this interview, one of the main questions I covered was relationships, starting with your husband. A homeschool only goes as well as your relationship with God, and with your spouse. Everything else will fall into place. Being home together has brought out the good and the bad in each of us! It has helped us to look at things and examine ourselves. In this episode, I talk more about this and the ways to communicate nicely! Set some ground rules, if you didn’t do this early in your marriage there is no time like the present!
- Talk to your spouse about the issues.
- No character assassination (no demeaning comments.)
- Uplift each other.
- Be thankful each day for something (about each other, your family, etc.)
I discussed what I would do if I could “do-over” my homeschool journey. The first thing is the more unit studies in the younger grades. I didn’t start out this way but when I changed to this method my homeschooling went so much better. Another is that for non-college-bound students to be open to more creative ways of homeschooling. What is your child interested in and how will you help your child attain their goals and find employment after homeschooling? It’s easy to do textbooks and workbooks, but true learning takes place when the children can experience the information. Also, a solid formation in the Word of God and especially a creationist perspective to science. When your child realizes that God created the world and all people, there is not prejudice and there is a stronger focus on a Christian worldview. So, secular science rarely takes hold!
