• Secular Homeschool Parent Book Club

    pizap-com15699013535531-jpg
    As a homeschooling parent, I love joining my kids in their reading. I have fun reliving a lot of my favorite childhood books. I love discussing the book with them, hearing their input and likes or dislikes about the storyline. We have some very intense conversations. Donít get me wrong.

    What I dislike as a homeschooling parent, sometimes forgetting about myself. Forget that I love reading. Forget that I need to take the time for me, even if it is 10 minutes a night. That I need to carve out a few minutes to immerse myself in something JUST for me. I mean I purchase books with the intent to read them. Every bookstore trip or library visit, I come home with homeschool books, the boy find books and I even grab something for myself that basically becomes a paperweight for 3 weeks until I return it unread. I know that I am not the only one guilty of this. We put our kids and families first. Nothing wrong with that. But I have decided that in order to be a better homeschooling Mom, I need to take time for me. 5 minutes, 10 minutes where I sit and read a few pages.

    Hence the idea of the Secular Homeschool Parent Book Club. I would love to be able to get together in the forum with other members, we pick a book, take a month to read it(if I give myself a time limit, I will make sure I do it) and then come on here and chat about it. I posted the idea in the poll section and had some interest. Are you interested? Let me know!
