“I meet teaching parents all around the country and find them to be intelligent, enthusiastic, creative people doing a marvelous job of teaching their children. But, sad to say, most of them do not know what a great job they are doing. Everyone thinks it goes smoothly in everyone else’s house and theirs is the only place that has problems. I’ll let you in on a secret about teaching: there is no place in the world where it rolls along smoothly without problems. Only in articles and books can that happen.”
I was first introduced to Dr. Ruth Beechick’s educational philosophy of “natural learning” while our child was a preschooler. Dr. Beechick’s insight was invaluable to my husband and I as parents and home educators.
Recently, I was asked by a homeschooling parent if there was a website to quick reference on Dr. Beechick’s natural learning philsophy. After persuing various blogs on the internet, I finally found one which fit the biil!
