Sometimes it’s easy to compare our children to other children. Our children need grace, too. God made each one in His image, but He didn’t use a cookie cutter.
Some children learn calculus with ease; others are good with their hands. Some learn to read when they are four; others when they are eleven. Some grow up to be skilled engineers; others become compassionate caregivers.
Trust God’s wisdom in making each child the way He did.
One of the beauties of homeschooling is that you can tailor a child’s learning to help him become the person God intended. Teach him. Be patient with her. Wait when he needs you to wait. Push when she needs you to push. But never try to press your child into someone else’s mold — and certainly don’t pass your child off for someone else to mold.
Accept each individual God has created and put in your care.
Mothers of grace give children grace.
To sum up, all of you be
harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly,
kindhearted, and humble in spirit.
1 Peter 3:8
