See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I am a planner. Oh boy am I. And I am going to be homeschooling my future children. I knew this for years now. However, I am also twenty-seven with no kids, or husband.... not even a boyfriend. BUT, like I said, I am a planner! I really enjoy planning, it's fun!
Anyways, I am in college trying to get my degree in Early Childhood Education. I am still getting the basics like English, Sciences, Maths.. etc. This semester I am taking General Biology. Which I am having a hard time learning with my Learning Disability. Now a friend of mine (who knows I want to homeschool my kids) said why don't you get some children's books and curriculum's now to help me understand biology ,or whatever subject, better?! This was a good idea until I started to think, I wanted to explore those young books with my future kids.... do them together... learn together. That was part of the fun I had been planning for.
So my question to you is, I am afraid to "ruin the fun" for myself if I get these extra help through children's books and games. Will I "ruin the fun" for myself if I look at and explore the subjects without my kids?
Thanks For everything!
UPDATE: I am needing to pass these basic classes to get my degree, and the only thing that is helping is those elementary school videos and curriculum's. The worst part is I am having sooooo much fun! Also, I am already starting to see the down play of some of me learning before my kids and how it's effecting now.
You see, there were some videos I didn't enjoy because I already knew the stuff on them. As I was watching those videos, I thought to myself, is this how it's going to be with me and my kids. My joy and excitement demolished because I already knew this stuff.
I am just hoping what you guys said will come true. That I will forget most of it and have to relearn it again. All I hope for is I don't forget the big picture of things. I need that to be able to teach them the small stuff.
