You have to know everything about a topic before you can teach it to your children.

by Shelley Luna

I have found that part of the joy of homeschooling is learning alongside my children, specifically in the areas of science and history.

For example, during the latter part of our school year we had a brief study of George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere and the Revolutionary war. I only had a few facts stored in my brain from my own school years, but reading and researching with my older son sparked my desire to learn more about our Founders and the beginning of our nation.

So now I have an extensive reading list of my own to complete. What we don't know, we can research and learn ourselves. While there will be some subjects we may have to seek outside help on (Oh, how I dread geometry!), for the most part, I think we can use the homeschooling experience to learn with our kids and show them that learning is a joyful, lifelong endeavor.

**Well stated Shelley - Thanks!
