"Book Bending"

"For some children and for some of the time, certain books will happen to be just right. But if you find yourself struggling to mold your child to a book, try reversing priorities. It's the child you are teaching, not the book. Bend the book, or find another; make the studies fit the child."

Great minds...

I just came to this realization today and blogged on it. I'd been caught up in the curriculum and forgeting my daughter's needs and interests. The funny thing? I used to be a radical unschooler so you'd think I would know better.
