    time working on a master s degree and then a Ph D Every once in awhile I d get so busy I felt like I was neglecting my schooling At that point all the textbooks would be put away and my kids would be sort of on their own for awhile Gradually it dawned on me that they were actually being more productive and were happier when I gave them a little space than when I structured everything for them and became a teacher To me the heart of relaxed homeschooling is the following You are a mom not a teacher You have a family not a school Your husband is the head of the household but he s not the principal of a school You have individual relationships with your children not a classroom What does education often do It makes a straight cut ditch of a free meandering brook Henry David Thoreau I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education They seem to me to be built upon the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think Whereas if the child is left to himself he will think more and better if less showily Let him go and come freely let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself instead of sitting indoors at a little round table while a sweet voiced teacher suggests that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks or make a rainbow out of strips of coloured paper or plant straw trees in bead flower pots Such teaching fills the mind with artificial associations that must be got rid of before the child can develop independent ideas out of actual experience Anne Sullivan There s not one replicated study in the United States today that suggests that little children should be in school at 5 or 6 Not even one There s not one replicated study today in the United States that even suggests that a normal child should be in kindergarten The home is the best garden for the child the average home and the time has come when we should be strengthening the home instead of taking children out earlier Dr Raymond and Dorothy Moore When a baby is picked up spoken to and loved he is starting his education as God planned it For all our lives we are human beings in an active state of learning responding understanding Education extends to all of life In fact an educational system that says one bright summer s day in the dawn of my youth There Now you are educated This piece of paper says so is doing me a gross disfavor The truly educated person has only had many doors of interest opened He knows that life will not be long enough to follow everything through fully Susan Schaeffer Macaulay A sense of curiosity is nature s original school of education Smiley Blanton It is in fact
