Most people’s definition of “education” is a more formal approach, but the truth is that you’ve already been educating your child for 5 years! You are the “expert” when it comes to your child and you will be able to tell when he/she is ready to start reading, writing, etc. We will talk about simple ways to recognize when your child is ready to experiment with reading, writing and basic math! Most of all you will be encouraged to relax and enjoy this season of early learning and quiet the voices that want to put unnecessary pressure on you and your littles!
Durenda Wilson has been homeschooling since 1996 and has graduated 7 of her 8 children so far. She has been married to Darryl for 31 years, and they have 6 grandkids. Durenda is convinced that home education is an incredible blessing but only if we don’t let it hold us hostage to unnecessary expectations and notions of what it “should” look like. The heart of her message encourages parents to create a simple, unhurried lifestyle while growing a strong, cohesive family. It’s in this nurturing environment where learning most naturally happens and where life-long learners are grown. Durenda’s new book, The Four Hour School Day will be released in June of 2021! She has also written The Unhurried Homeschooler: A Simple, Mercifully Short Book on Homeschooling En Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart: 31 Days in God’s Word. Durenda is also the host of The Durenda Wilson Podcast.
