My kids are not homeschooled yet, but it's the plan in a few years- for now we are doing some schooling during the summer, nothing too intense, but just to keep school fresh and introduce them to concepts they will see next year. There was a comment made on Facebook about it being punishment to make kids do schoolwork during the summer because it's summer after all. Why does it have to be punishment? Most of the time the kids are loving doing it, and it's fun stuff- we do learning games, crafts, field trips, and some paper- but it's not punishment. I guess I just don't understand why learning is thought to be punishment- have you ever had to deal with comments like that? What do you do?
