Always Learning

Now that I look at the world through homeschooling glasses, I see that we're always learning, including me! I read a great homeschool mom's blog and got some great insights about childhood learning and what to expect with homeschooling.

One of the things that resonated with me was her idea that we should never tell a child how to use a toy, and, on a related note, try not to color or paint on their picture. It makes sense. This can impede their imagination and make them hesitant to try new things without seeking parental approval. She also got me thinking about some great preschool homeschooling ideas, and so yesterday M was fully immersed in making and playing with homemade dough....why didn't I think of this before?!
