I learn the most about how to homeschool my kids from my kids.
Recently, I gave my child an assignment that was taking f o r e v e r to complete. Thinking that the child was spending a lot of time daydreaming, I told this kid to go a little faster.
Later, I went over the assignment to see how my child did. The first 3/4 of the assignment were done well with little errors. Then the last 4th of the assignment was mostly incorrect. There was a marked difference in between the two sections. So I asked my kid about the difference and I was told that it was because I had said to hurry up.
So that daydreaming wasn’t actually daydreaming, but the child processing the questions in a pace that worked.
Lesson learned for this homeschooling mom!
