I’ll admit it. I want to be the Fun Homeschool Mom.
I want my children to wake up and think they have the best teacher in the whole world. I want their lessons to be as engaging as they are educational. And let’s not forget the FUN. Especially with science projects and hopefully with math.
But my focus needs to be on providing them with a solid foundation for their education, not on providing entertainment.
Of course you can have fun while learning, but the learning is the focus and not the fun. There has to be a balance and my children have to learn that some things in life might not be entertaining but they are still essential.
How do you fight the need to always make school fun?
I don’t know for sure. I’ve explained to the kiddos that some things just aren’t fun, and they do it because they have to. It’s of course the type of answer they don’t like.
