Does homeschooling in the summertime make me a bad mother?
I have 3 children ages 10, 6 & 3..and they keep me on my toes! I thought it would be a good idea if we continued our studies through the summer months also (I mean why not...they ARE at home anyways). But I do make it fair...I think. They have a list of subjects and they are to choose one subject per day. Plus they can not pick the same subject twice! Then I give a prepared lesson in the desired subject...here's the catch...it's always something they struggled with during the school months! Not to mention it only takes about 2 hours at the most!
Yes I know it's summertime and there are lost of fun things to do. But some argue that I'm "Taking it Overboard"! And my argument is "NO! because of my efforts, my children THRIVE! It's not like it's all-day-long!....So Am I a bad mother...or should I take a different approach?
