Focus on What you Know

I was trapped in a party filled with certified teachers, It was a barbecue and while my hamburger was grilling, they were grilling me on my educational philosophy!.  They were asking me questions about homeschooling using words I didn't even understand.  Even with my college degree, I still felt woefully inadequate. How could people I barely knew make me feel so uncomfortable about my ability to homeschool?

But wait a minute!  I knew that my homeschool was working.  I knew my children were learning, their social skills were improving, and that college was in sight.  My lack of an educational philosophy didn't seem to be standing in the way.

Instead of worrying about what you DON'T know, consider what you DO know.
John 9:25
He replied, "Whether he is a sinner or not, I don't know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!"

When faced with a negative response, don't worry about their arguments and concerns.  Focus on what you know to be true.  "This is working for us. My children are learning."

Love it! Very timely. Seems like the end of the year is "testing time" for everyone else -- pointing out those areas where we are weaker. *sigh* Will my children's education have holes? Absolutely! But they are fine, godly, kind, happy, and balanced individuals. That's enough :-).

Love love love this!! We don't have to know how to decipher their lingo like "balanced assessment" or "criterion-referenced test" to help our children succeed academically. I've stumbled onto the "professional" teacher sites and found myself seizing up with panic, then I have to remind myself that I am still my children's best teacher. Lee, your advice is wise indeed.
