Relaxed Homeschooling - Eternity in View
To enjoy relaxed homeschooling you must have eternity in view. A mother with eternity in view will see the importance of relaxing and enjoying her children. School work and housework are temporary.
Every day is a blessing and should be viewed as such. Each day should be fun and filled with joy. A messy house, unfinished school work, and dirty clothes will be of no consequence 100 years from now.
Nothing really matters except enjoying God's presence.
I'm not suggesting, of course, that we don't need to work in our homes or that we don't need to teach our children. I am suggesting that we shouldn't be consumed with worry and stress. We need to relax!
Teaching the children should be fun for us and for the children. We should keep our minds and hearts focused on eternity and not on the things of this world. Our homes should be cozy and peaceful learning environments.
Spend lots of time with your children having fun. Think of ways to turn work and responsibility into joy. Win their hearts. Smile!
