We talk a lot about the dynamics of a good homeschool curriculum. Everything from does it cover all the basics to does it teach from a Christian Worldview is discussed in detail between homeschool moms as they try to figure out what curriculum to buy each year. We are very concerned with how the curriculum affects and educates our children, but, have we ever considered how it affects and educates us as homeschool moms?
Any mom who has been homeschooling more than a few minutes knows that all the knowledge she imparts pales in comparison to all the knowledge she gains simply by teaching her young children. Subjects I absolutely detested during my school years have become favorites. Information that was disconnected and disjointed in my mind as a child has become connected and makes sense as I pull the pieces together for my children. And a faith that was likewise disconnected and disjointed, has become woven together through the threads of the homeschool curriculum I have chosen to use to teach my children.
