For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been reading Zan Tyler’sÂ 7 Tools for Cultivating Your Child’s PotentialÂ as part of a book club at The Pelsers.
It’s an awesome book by one of the pioneers of the homeschool movement in America. It’s notÂ specificallyÂ about homeschooling, but more about being a good and Godly parent who brings out the best in your children. I recommend it.
Anyway, I am guest posting at The Pelsers today, talking about chapter 4 in the book – Discovering Purpose. The chapter is about getting to know your children: their personality style, their learning style, and their spiritual gifts. I share a story from my own homeschooling experience, as well as resources for digging into each of those three areas.
Here’s a little taste of my post.
I homeschool for so many reasons, not the least of which is that I can do a better job one on one (or one on two) than a classroom teacher with 25-30 (or more!) kids.
There is no room for debate here; thereâ€™s no doubt that a personalized education far exceeds a factory model.
What if weâ€™re treating our homeschooled children as if they were seats in an assembly line education?
You’ll have toÂ hop over to The Pelsers to read the rest.
