“Am I doing a good job of homeschooling my children?”  It’s a question that many of us ask ourselves.  And how do you answer?  Rebecca Kochenderfer, the author of Homeschooling and Loving It! and the founder of believes you can answer this query by asking yourself a few additional questions–

  • Have my relationships with my children improved or grown stronger?
  • Are my family members happy and healthy?
  • Are my children learning to be kind, honest, respectful, self-reliant and responsible?
  • Have my children learned how to think, express themselves and do they enjoy increased self-esteem as a result?

If you can answer “yes” to these questions, then you can answer affirmatively to the first question, “Am I doing a good job of homeschooling my children?”.

Also, from Rebecca’s book– “Isn’t in interesting….Learning and assimilating information happens best when the student is having FUN!”.  So maybe this can be another question you ask yourself–“Are the children and I having fun”?  Because as you know, fun learning is forever learning!
