Complete the math curriculum.
Start educating at age four.
Skip grade levels.
Dual enroll and take AP classes.
Learn all the states, capitals, countries, topography of the entire world in this ONE homeschooling year.
Participate in three different sports and extra curricular activities.
Our list of accomplishments and expectations grows and grows like a looming monster with each child.
More to do. More to accomplish. More. More. More.
But at what point is more…..too much!
Many countries of the world educate differently. Finland at the top of the list for having different educational thoughts.
If the truth be said as American’s we whole-heartedly believe that we must DO – MUCH to be successful.
Today’s blog post will challenge your thoughts.
It will challenge your worldview.
May even cause us to rethink that which drives us in our homeschooling.
So homeschooling friend, what did this post speak to you?
Thanks for sharing.
Homeschooling is DEFINITELY one of those things that home educators constantly find themselves second guessing at.
The reasons for this is NUMEROUS.
1. So and so uses this method for schooling?
2. This books says not to do this?
3. This method sounds great maybe I should be doing that?
4. I don’t know what I’m doing so maybe I should be doing something other than what I’m doing in our schooling?
Today’s blog post topic will encourage you on this Wednesday’s Words of Encouragement.

*To what level do you allow your children to permit their imagination to flourish in their daily homeschooling?
*What do you think allowing your children *to flourish in imagination* looks like within a homeschooling setting?
*How much imagination *time* should be allowed from day to day in the schooling our our students?
*What does this look like within the studies of our older children?
