It’s The Small Things

on September 28, 2012

There are so many things a parent can do when homeschooling their child. It’s basically a limitless world of possibilities. But the most important thing we can do – make it special. Find a way to make it special in your own way that works for your family. For each family this may be different, and that’s okay. One of the biggest mistake a homeschooling parent can make it to believe they have to do things just like other families to succeed. We don’t need to be like other families, we just need to do what will work the best for our own families. πŸ™‚

So for us, one small thing we do is certificates. We make a big thing out of it, getting a frame and putting them up on the wall. Some of our books have had certificates in the back of them which was great. The rest we made on the computer. It is a joy for my daughter to complete a book and know she gets to decorate her certificate, pick out a frame and see it hung on the wall. It’s such a feeling of accomplishment for her, and the ones on the wall are reminders that she can succeed.

It’s something small, but in our home it makes a big difference. πŸ™‚
