Reply To: Restful Learning without undermining goals

    Hello. This is a great question. Although I am not educating the higher ages right now, this has always been a question that I have always pondered. The quest to train my children to appreciate the importance of their education and to value the virtues of diligence and self-control has always been one of my most significant goals in our homeschool. This in particular has been a weekly, if not daily, battle.

    If I am not continuously reminding them of their responsibilities and assignments, then they just would not do it. Period. So the struggle begins. The battle rages. Restful learning is out the window. Restful, contemplative learning is so foreign in our home, that I as the teacher and mom, can become disappointed and discouraged. That is why I am here.

    I would love to know an answer to this. Thanks.
