I’ve been collecting links to a few things that I’ve been reading lately – about time I posted them up and shared….
Since Josh is planning on going to university there was some advice here that I’ve taken to heart.
Shopping is one of those things that can work for us or against us and it totally depends on how intentional we are. If we think through what we want our children’s behaviour to look like during this time, teach them, train them, expect it of them then the weekly shopping trip can be both a time of training and in the long run, an enjoyable time together. Start your thinking with these shopping tips:
The value of motherhood – it is always good to be encouraged to see the truth in what we do.
Homeschoolers and Socialisation – okay, this one is more for the fascination factor – I have never seen such a list on articles about the socialisation issue. (Check out the sidebar for this list) I know it can be an annoying issue that people throw up but sometimes people ask out of genuine care for our kids – if we can speak to them knowledgeably about what socialisation really is (they probably can’t even define it themselves) and then share how we are addressing these real issues then we may well win a friend.
Socialisation is one thing that people always hit on – for our dose of socialisation for the week, we had a gypsy van staying with us – very different culture to ours, but it was a great week!
Have a wonderful week.
