In the public school arena, there is so much focus placed on teaching kids how to take tests...something that most kids struggle with, and something that as mom of a special needs child, I don't agree with. Growing up in a time where learning was fun, and we learned through play, the rigors that are placed on kids these days, are stripping our kids of their childhood. That's why, when my husband and I decided that we were going to homeschool our kids, we knew that we needed to take a different approach to teaching them. Bringing back things like Home Ec. After all, eating is a pretty essential part of living! This is why I am so pleased to have been able to partner with Lakeshore Learning, and bring their The Amazing Chef Cooking Set, into our homeschool area, and our lives!
