Magic Moments at Every Age

Some of HEM’s best homeschooling articles are about homeschooling methods. Others provide rich resources for learning. Others are personal homeschooling stories that will help other parents overcome challenges. We also cover legal and political issues. But none are more important to our general readership than the articles that are simply reflective and encouraging. I love to have at least one of these articles in each issue of the magazine, a piece that provides perspective and support for continuing the homeschooling journey.

You’ve enjoyed other articles in Home Education Magazine by Agnes Penny, like “Raising Art Critics” and “Family Time All Day Long.” In the November-December 2009 issue of HEM, this warm writer and experienced homeschool mom shares her understanding that special times keep coming even though our children are growing up fast.

Children who are getting a little older can enjoy more grown-up experiences with their homeschooling parents, from special concerts to lively discussions about books. This encouraging article tells us how homeschooling and caring for children of different ages provide variety and interest for Mom as well as kids. Make sure you look for Agnes Penny’s upcoming article, “Magic Moments at Every Age.”

You can read about the rest of the articles we’re working on for November-December at our upcoming issue page.

    Just read some of the article for Magic Moments at Every Age and can relate to my own experiences growing up. As a school teacher I see the students I teach year after year and watch them grow from moth by month. Each students experience at school and social life is different and indeed some students change and move away.
