Transcript: What Do You Say to Encourage People Who Want to Homeschool?
How do you encourage someone who says, I don’t have the ability to teach my children? What do you say to them to encourage them?
If God has called you to homeschool, He will equip you. You may not know everything you need to know right now. I have had many parents come to our store and say, “I’m learning this along with my child.”
My own sister, who is a physician, is telling me about reading Charlotte’s Web and all these wonderful children’s books. I’m just looking at her, [saying] “You mean you never read that when you were a child?”
[She said,] “No, I always had other things to do. Now I get to read all these things and I’m learning all about children’s literature and some other things [I] didn’t have time for [I was] in school. “
