Bring Your Friendship Voice to the Table
Move into “shared learning mode” (instead of “teacher mode”) when home educating.
Be the one who:
- is curious,
- doesn’t know all the answers,
- wonders aloud,
- is inspired by a child’s idea,
- gets a kick out of her kid’s antics.
Let go of your need to be obeyed, thanked, and appreciated.
It’s a little shift—a tiny tweak, really, to sit on the same side of the learning table as your child. It’s the unique opportunity that is not always possible in school.
