On our plans for our kids’ success

On parenting:
Formulas, curriculum, techniques, strategies, tools.
Philosophy, values, goals, mission statements.
Homeschool, public school, private school.

They all can work

until they don’t.

One key is paying enough attention to if/when they don’t and adjust.
Not using them as a way to check out, to avoid having to work and deal with the responsibility of parenting.

The best plan can’t overcome an unengaged parent.
Even if there was such a thing as a perfect parenting plan/tool/formula we’d still have the problem of being imperfect parents.
It’s why we need grace & forgiveness and wise friends and mentors on the journey.
