    Ten Things; Ten Years

    By Mark Roth on March 10, 2010 at 7:20 am

    No, I didn’t write this:

    When I first started homeschooling ten years ago, I quickly learned to depend upon the wisdom of experienced homeschooling moms. These ladies provided me with a listening ear and wise advice that proved true time after time. The longer I’ve homeschooled, the more I’ve added little nuggets to my own repertoire of wisdom. Here are the top ten things I have learned in my first ten years.

    10. Invest in less curriculum and more educational toys.

    9. Turn off the TV, the Internet, and all other electronic devices.

    8. Don’t rush your children to read by a certain age.

    7. Any time you can read aloud to your kids is time well spent.

    6. Math does matter.

    5. Schedule time for the things that fall by the wayside.

    4. A day off will not harm your children’s education forever, and it might just be the one thing the whole family needs.

    3. Homeschooling is hard.

    2. Homeschooling is huge.

    1. There is no perfect child, perfect home, perfect mom, or perfect family.
