As I sit down to start working on a new issue of Family Magazine, I find myself pondering a topic that seems to come up regularly among homeschool moms: teaching multiple children. It doesn’t seem to matter what age group or subject we’re looking at. The nature of our one-room schools automatically forces us to consider how we’re going to handle teaching them all at once.
As a mother of five, I definitely had questions about how to homeschool all of them at once! It seemed like my best source of advice always came from other moms. Even though we are all different and have to remember that what works for someone else may not work for us, it’s also pretty obvious that the best “experts” in any situation are those who have shared the trenches with you. Other homeschool moms get it!
What About You?
The flip side is also true – you have solid advice that can benefit other homeschool moms. No matter where you are on the journey, you have experiences that can help someone else. Take a moment and think about that. What about you? What ideas can other moms glean from you? What advice would you give to moms on schooling multiple ages?
I want to invite you to join in and share your homeschool advice with other moms in the Well Planned Gal community. And, be sure to come back for encouragement for other moms as well. Let’s take the time to share the journey with one another!
