Mia is now in 10th grade and Anna in 5th grade. Both of our sweet girls want to homeschool again this year, and we are happy to make that happen. Last year was the best year we’ve had in a long time, and I’m hopeful this year will be great, too. After trial and error in trying different methods and curricula, we’ve found our own groove and found what works for us. My heart is full and deeply grateful.
Today, I work for a few hours and homeschool with the girls for a few hours. I’m listening to this today and am glad for the reminder that attachment is the most important aspect of parenting. Even as our children grow, our attachment bond with our children is the most important aspect of their growth. I’m sure that we can maintain attachment with our children if they are in school, too, although homeschooling the girls right now feels so in line with maintaining healthy attachment.
