The Fine Art of Homeschool Balancing

Great post over by Jessica at Simple Homeschool about the need to balance homeschooling's academic focus with character training. I was challenged, as I am VERY academically focused. It's easy for me to try and squelch bad behavior instead of taking the time to instruct and train. Along those lines, Jessica made this point:

Man cannot live on books alone. We need to develop quality relationships, enjoy one another’s company, and learn to get along with one another. Better that my sons be godly garbage collectors than arrogant men with initials at the end of their names.

So true, but so easy to forget. Needed that reminder!
