Hey friend, can I share a secret with you?
You don’t have to be perfect to homeschool.
Shocking, I know.
If you look around Pinterest, it probably feels like you couldn’t swing this homeschooling thing because you don’t love crafts, you haven’t written your own reading curriculum, and math… just, math!
I was terrified to start homeschooling even though I knew it was the right thing for our family.
I’m not perfect! I kept thinking to myself. What if I’m not cut out for this!?
Can you relate? If so, guess what…
“You want to do something really fun with us, Mom!?”
I want to say yes but every ounce of my body screams no. This is parenting with PMDD. The ugly side of it, anyway.
Since my children were newborns, I’ve been making up songs for them.
It started as something to bring me joy and turned into great educational opportunities!
When our 5 year old was struggling to remember our phone number, I decided it was only appropriate that I make up a song to help him. He loves it and now has our number memorized!
If your three-five year old is ready to learn important information about your family, like his phone number, address, food allergies, and full name, try these songs! Replace my information with yours. Sing it every day and before you know it, he’ll be able to answer these important, age-appropriate questions.
When people find out that we homeschool, they naturally have a lot of questions. And honestly, I love answering them!
Today I’m sharing the 10 most common homeschool questions we get asked, along with my answers.
