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. 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.
Encouraging maturity and assuming new responsibilities was a pretty informal process in our home until a friend suggested we present each girl with a “Responsibilities and Privileges” list on her birthday. We started presenting them with a new list every year and they now look forward to seeing what new privileges they have earned. It is also an opportunity for us to talk about their new responsibilities. Learn how you can implement one in your home.
