As I strive to change my habits from schooling to Discipling my children I have tried to see our day in blocks of time.  One question I ask myself – either as I plan those blocks of time or as we go through our day being flexible with that very same plan –

 

What is the most important thing for this hour?

 

Is it housework, is it Phonics, Math, Bible reading, is it a discussion, is it getting the washing on the line, is it my phone calls or office work, is it reading aloud and having a good laugh together.    What is my focus this hour?

 

At the end of the day I would like to say that each of my children have had one good learning experience for the day. That would be 365 experiences a year.  WOW!

 

What would I consider as a thing learnt?  A light switched on.  A skill mastered a little more.  A character trait stretched.  A concept discussed.  Keeping in mind that learning is continual even the most knowledgeable on a topic still has more to learn.

 

356 experiences a year!   One hour at a time.
