What do I Need to Homeschool?


Trust.

Our homeschool journey is much like when we were preparing to become parents.
We ran around collecting the things we believed we would need, only to discover that the only things necessary were not on the market.

The same holds true for homeschooling.
The keys for learning are within.
The days that run most smoothly are those in which I step back in trust and forward in presence.
It requires massive amounts of 'unlearning' on my part; being patient for progress, avoiding comparisons with traditionally schooled children, observing and being attentive to individual needs and freeing up the notion that education happens in one place at a given time with a proven method.


Life is learning. 
And I'm still in school with them!
