For me, I needed to drop all the labels and put my kids first. That meant listening to them. Really listening and asking them questions about what direction they wanted our days to go, when they felt was the best time or days of the week for functions, what they wanted to start or get rid of in our schedule. Most days we watch TV, play games and watch movies on a theme for the week. Their Dad is an Accountant so he does Math with them in the evenings. Our days are filled with Museum trips and outings, art club and other functions with our unschool friends. You may even consider a co-op or something fun like skating or other weekly activities the kids enjoy. Our parenting style is Unschool, but we have found fun ways to learn that aren't 7 hour a day desk lessons that were meant to fill a school day for working parents. Many of the programs we have seen are meant for private schools and have lots and lots of busy work, we do a couple workbook pages........ and have lots of fun!~
