As a homeschooler, I can struggle with pride.
I can become so puffed up about the skills that my sons have developed under my watchful eye.
Sometimes I miss the mark entirely.
Do you struggle with this too?
- Are you so tickled that your kindergartener can write her name, that you forget to teach her to tie her shoes?
- Are you so focused on your son’s math problems that you neglect to encourage him to say please and thank you, or better yet,”Help!”
- Do you sometimes wonder if they will ever learn to write an essay using proper grammar because you lose sleep at night worrying if you should have used an apostrophe in that last email? (Psshhh. Not me. I sleep like a dead horse at night)
I can get distracted by grades, curriculum, and progress too. And then, something so small, so basic, so obvious hits me in the forehead like a nerf dart from a guilty husband. (Yes, my husband delights in using me as target practice when wielding a nerf weapon).
This made me feel like a loser.
This made me feel like I am a lousy parent.
This made me lose a gasket.
How could I have neglected this important life skill?
