Homeschooling From A Distance and teaching TRUST

Homeschooling From a Distance One of the hardest  lessons  I've learned from  homeschooling  our three kids is to step way and leave them alone. Equipping them with  knowledge ,  understanding  and  tools  is important; but the best way to teach your  kids  sometimes is to reassure them that you  TRUST  them. It will push them into the confidence they need to accomplish tasks and projects that they would otherwise steer clear of. They will  teach  each other , set their own  classroom  environment , and learn to  work  as a  team !   Conquering  a new  lifeskills  is just a bonus! They will let you know if they need you....until then step away and  enjoy  your fruit! 😍
