As we strive to help our children assume responsibility for their education, there are six steps we can keep in mind to equip and encourage them on the journey.
- Start with conversations about why you learn.
- Set an example and be a lifelong learner.
- Set clear expectations and ensure your child understands them.
- Provide training.
- Provide accountability and quality control.
- Allow your child to reap the rewards of a job well done.
Join me as we discuss these six steps in this episode of the podcast. You’ll hear about real situations in our homeschool of how I implement each of these steps, sometimes more successfully than others.
