Educating Our Kids
What did school look like when you were growing up? If you’re like most, you probably went to either a public or private school and you probably had no input into that decision.
With the current school climate of testing and lots of homework, many families are really looking at what makes the most sense for their families in terms of how we educate our kids in a way that our parents probably didn’t. It creates a whole series of decisions that add to the craziness of parenting today.
Yet deciding on the educational path for your family is super important, as it impacts every other area of your life. (Ask any parent who is struggling with homework every night, or for whom homeschooling isn’t working!)
Finding an environment that works for your family isn’t as simple as pointing your sails in a direction and going that way. Conscious parents often re-evaluate their path to assess whether it’s really working for everyone.
In this series, we’ll be looking at different educational options and speaking with parents and children who are having very different educational experiences. We’ll tease out when something isn’t working and needs to be adjusted, and when an educational environment needs a complete overhaul. It’s about helping you to find your own way, whatever that looks like for you and your family!
