I read a very interesting article yesterday concerning the spoon-fed mentality of college students today. As homeschoolers, we need to ask ourselves if we are holding our children's hand every step of the education way or if we are allowing them to fall once in a while. Do we show them exactly where to find the answers? Do we fall into the trap of preparing them to pass exams instead of truly learning the material? Or, do we allow them to find information for themselves and learn through hard work?
Take a few minutes to read the article by Jerry Weinberger. It may surprise you. It may depress you. It should challenge you. I know it did me.
