The dinner table is an opportunity to talk with our kids but so often everyone is tired and unless I am intentional about conversation things slide all too quickly. I try and take one idea, one conversational topic to the table incase I need to direct things. My daughter , Jessica, sent me this link this week: how to have better dinner conversations. I think there are some great tips in there regardless of how old our children are.
Our family has a little saying, “Google is your friend” – these tips make using Google even better!
I always appreciate reading about teaching multiple ages. We have a combination of family learning, pairing children up to learn or independent learning happen in our house.
Marilyn Howshall’s Lifestyle of Learning books were a central part to my learning curve towards discipleship homeschooling. She has a new website.
