Routine..

Posted by Dawn at Wednesday, August 14, 2013
One of the main goals that I have in mind to achieve as a stay at home mum within this 4 months left for the year is to create a schedule for my children to follow so that they can get into the habit of doing what is important- quiet time, praying, reading as well as doing and revising their homework.


It hasn't been easy as there will be things that crop up in the day or I am just not in the mood to push it strictly. Though I have not been following it strictly, it has been a guide for me and it does help me to enforce certain things in place which I am quite happy thus far. For example, I will do quiet time with the children in the morning when they both wake up and at night, before they sleep. I would pray with them before sending them off to school which helps me also as a mum, to place my trust in God to protect and pour His favour upon them as they are in school.

Now, whenever I am lazy, my faithful daughter, Danielle always reminds me and pushes me to do quiet time. Haha.. So I am glad this routine has helped.

Have been reading some text from Charlotte Mason who is a British educator and an expert in homeschooling,. She has invested her life in improving the quality of education. This is taken from her text which reminds me why I want to stay at home to educate my children..



Education is a discipline, a life and at atmosphere which I hope to achieve with my children and not forgetting to create a wonderful home where my husband can come back to after a hard day's of work and enjoy the company of his children and to the cooking which I have prepared. That is sheer bliss!
