This is the third installment in a year-long blog party designed to help Sonlight celebrate 25 years of serving homeschoolers. In January, I introduced our family. Last month, I shared how we first started on our journey as a home educating family. This month’s assignment is to focus on what great advice we’ve been given over the years, and what we like to share with new homeschoolers.
I had probably been homeschooling for 15 minutes when I got my first bit of advice. I don’t remember it, exactly, or much of what came over the course of the next few years as I tried my best to find the rhythm that fit my kids, my style, and my family. Here’s the thing about advice: it often says more about the person offering it than it does about you, or your needs. It’s a fearful thing, stepping up and telling another person the right way to do something … especially in regards to something as personal as educating your kids.
