1. No Textbooks- I knew they only contained what the editors wanted to put forward.
2. No School at Home- for me this came after fighting with my oldest, b/c "that's not how we do it in school."
3. Kids thinking Learning only happens at/during school- even though I went to PS, my parents always showed me that learning is all around.
So with those things in mind I began my journey. Shiloah introduced me to TJEd, and I KNEW this is what was right for my family. I tried to share with my husband how I wanted our home set up. I began to explain the important points of TJEd. He wasn't really interested, instead he told me that homeschooling is my thing, and that I can do what ever I want. However, over the last couple of months, he keeps telling me that he doesn't think the kids are learning anything. We had planned on attending a Face to Face seminar, but that didn't happen. We have "A Thomas Jefferson Education", "The Home Companion", and "A Leadership Education," but DH doesn't want to read any of them. I guess here's the big dilemma, DH doesn't like to read. In the 8 years we've been married he's read 6 books. How do I get my husband involved? We started holding FECs which seems to help DH know what's going on with each of the kids. I've finally realized that I need to utilize my husbands strengths. He's very handy, and can teach the kids things that I can't-- like making campfires.
