(reminders – this is about free resources for homeschool, in 30 non-consecutive posts…meaning: there won’t be a post every day, but there will be 30 🙂 )
PREFACE/ENCOURAGEMENT/PONTIFICATION: We put inordinate pressure on our kids if we expect them to be heroes in everything, or even in anything. They are who they are, and not everyone has the desire to be THE BEST at any one thing. Some shine in one area, some excel in many, and some are just simply happy to enjoy life. But whatever they are, they love to learn. That’s why I enjoy this information age. Yes, it can become all-consuming if we let our kids (and ourselves) withdraw from the real world of people and relationships and just learn things. But sites, like the ones below, are so full of good content, provided free by individuals, companies, and government, that it’s a shame to let them go to waste. It’s not an either/or proposition – EITHER our kids don’t know anything, OR they know everything. EITHER they’re dumb, OR they’re useful. With what’s available, our kids, with their penchant for soaking up the world, can learn so much AND do real things.
