In your homeschool? Do you know what I'm asking?
I am not so extreme as to be teacher only, I am still mom but during 'work' time when my son wants to 'play me' (fuss, play around, trick me,...)I remind him we are teacher/student untill work is done. Just like when he is spiderman, a cowboy, a paleontologists,...........when he is pretending play he is whatever character and Im usually his sidekick with a name he chooses untill played out or mom over-rules characters, and as teacher/mom mom wins out when I know he could use a snack, breaktime, a nap even just as well as he neednt wait to go pee for a set time,...... we might work on something shorter or longer as needed.....I'm mom first then teacher and we are human beings not robots on a unbreakable time line. I'm still a mom-nurse, a nurturer,...whatever the minute, hour, day needs to get things done.
Nope. I am their teacher and mom. I imagine if I taught them in a coop or something like that I might need to make a distinction, but thankfully I don't.
