The best thing you can do for your children when homeschooling is to set aside one-on-one time with each one of them. Each child is individual and having this alone time can help you see into the mind and heart of each of your children. When children know that they alone will have mom or dad's “ear” each day they are more inclined to relax. They will also interact easier with their siblings. This means they will be more focused on their homeschool curriculum. One-on-one time does not have to mean an hour for each child, either. Simply find a quite place each day where you and each child can have privacy for 10 or 15 minutes. Not only does this time help to build the parent-child bond, but it makes each child feel important and it builds self-esteem.
