If you’re a homeschool parent, you’ve probably heard words like that. If you’re not a homeschool parent, you could be the ones SAYING those words. First, let me say this is not a Parent Minute about the pros and cons of homeschooling, but it is a Parent Minute about our kids spending time with Christian adults. What I’ve noticed is the kids who spend a lot of time with adults are typically respectful. They look adults in the eyes and generally can carry on a decent conversation with them. I know this may be an overgeneralization, but the reality is homeschool kids spend a lot of time with adults. What am I trying to tell you? Encourage your kids to spend more time with Christian adults—they can become mentors and make a huge difference in their lives.
