It is the set of rules I was to live by that would make homeschooling successful. A mantra, if you will. It says:
#1 -- Learning Is Fun
#2 -- I can do it better
#3 -- Exposure to Everything Good
#4 -- The truth (and Resources) are out there
#5 -- (K-6) They're gonna do it again--no stress
On another page I found,
"1. Learning Is Active
2. Experience-based education
3. We aren't in a hurry"
So there you have it--a mixture of my own reassurances and my own educational philosophies when I was getting started.
And you know what? I CAN do schooling better than the public schools can. Learning actually IS fun. And the resources were truly out there (and free).
It's a lot of work to make my own curricula, but it's fun, and hopefully it will make homeschooling LESS work for other families.
