The darker side of homeschooling, from what I posted the other day, is that when my child is struggling with a portion of his schooling I have no one to point the finger at, but myself. With any form of schooling I know the parents always play a huge roll, but I do feel quite a weight on my shoulders knowing their education is solely on ME. Not a teacher who was trained for years to do this. But me. Just their mom.
So, when I perceive a struggle … not even really knowing if it actually is a struggle or not or if what they are experiencing is totally normal … its on me and it is ME that hasn’t done enough.
But the bright side is, I’m pretty darned committed to walk with my kids through whatever struggle they face, and will do whatever I can to bring them past it. So, that’s what I plan to do.
