The ten year anniversary of The Parenting Passageway is coming up in October. This blog has seen me through the days and years of when our oldest child was tiny, all the way through high school and three children homeschooling multiple times through the grades! Amazing all the different changes in ten years!
One thing that has been consistent about this blog is a love of developmental parenting and education. I often felt Waldorf Education met the developmental needs of our children very well, and wrote about what we were doing in our homeschooling. I extend an invitation to you to check out my thoughts regarding the different grades and what we did for certain blocks.
All of this information is free, and I hope you can use what you like out of it to put together developmental education for your own children.
