Hey, friend. In today’s episode, I answer my sweet friend Erica’s question. Erica asked me to speak to that mom who is considering homeschooling for the first time. Or maybe has been homeschooling for a while, that she’s just feeling so insecure about the fact that she’s not a professional teacher.
Well, let me tell you, you know, I have an opinion on this. I’m gonna talk to you all about co-learning and how you can provide your child a superior education, quite frankly, just by being invested. And you’ll have to forgive the quality of this recording. I was in the parking lot with my son hanging out in the minivan, but I was so inspired, I wanted to get this to you.

Key Ideas And Concepts: First Year Of Homeschooling

Co-learning and how you can provide your child a superior education just by being invested.

When we do the lessons together, particularly when it’s something like algebra or something that’s a little more complex you have to puzzle through information to try to gather the right answer.

I know where I’m struggling, which then lends itself to me teasing through what might be a barrier for my child.

When I say co-learning, I’m just thinking about this as like a lifestyle. I’m just talking about learning alongside your children, and this is a huge thing for moms that are new to the whole idea of homeschooling.

It’s about the idea that you do not have to know everything. You do not have to have a background in education. You have to only know this. That you want to learn something and all of us can walk alongside our kids.

When we don’t understand something, there’s something about that that connects us.

You are learning alongside your children, and that is how we learn. That’s how we teach.

Any mother can pull open a math book, a reading book. You’re gonna learn with your kids and your kids are gonna benefit from being able to ask you questions.

When you’re learning alongside your kids, then you know what they know. Then you’re able in life to like pick out little nuggets of information that, you know has to do with what they were just learning

It’s like the principle behind real, homeschooling and real learning. Learning is always happening.

  1. Hi my name is Mark. I have challenges of my own as my child started early this year. What do you normally do when you do not really know the answer even after reading the textbooks?

    • That’s a great question, Mark. Appreciate you asking. Your question points to something very important which is the need for us as parents and educators to teach kids HOW to find the answers to their questions in life. Meaning, we all need to feel confident in our ability to learn and seek out truth and information to help us move forward. So, an example from our own homeschool life happened quite frequently last year. My oldest was in Algebra and we were both having difficulties with Functions. The curriculum that we were using at the time is a phenomenal and very well done program. However, as with all things in life, nothing is perfect. Think: “No tool is perfect, but many are very useful.” So, I did what many educators do these days. I went to Youtube and watched videos posted by other mathematicians. My girl and I watched together, hashed out more equations until we got it. Does that help? 🙂
