Doesn’t matter what I read it has implications for an educational life – but actually – doesn’t everything? Seems to when you’re a home educator; you suddenly see the potential in everything and that view never goes away.
There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person’.
It struck me that education requires us to pay attention to these four ‘rooms’ as well – in order for it to be complete.
No prizes for guessing which ones tend to get neglected in schools. Perhaps we should remember these ‘four rooms’ when home educating or parenting our children, and make sure each are given equal attention every day.
