The Jones Mom Approach
Our children desire to make us happy, to learn, and to be overall good kids. However, they need guidance and the most influential people in their lives are their parents. Being a good parent and giving our children the tools they need for success is easier than society tries to make it seem, but it does take dedication.
As parents, we must never stop doing everything we can to raise the best kids possible. It is our responsibility to teach them how to be considerate of others, to take care of the environment, to be mindful of the decisions they make, and to respect themselves. Parents are the ones who teach children manners, how to behave, patience, temper control, etc.
The best way to teach our children how to be good adults is to be their constant example. We should strive to be the kind of person we want our children to be. Our kids never stop looking to us as an example.
Raising great kids is easier when you homeschool. This is because you can integrate proper behavior and all other desirable qualities into their daily education and routine. Of course, homeschooling doesn't make sense for every family, but if you can make it work it is definitely recommended.
I am a huge supporter of the Montessori style of learning. From personal experience I can tell you that it works! I use elements of this philosophy every day. Of course, it isn't practical to turn your entire home into a Montessori classroom. Not to mention the exact methods can be confusing for the average parent. And what about other learning philosophies? Don't they have powerful aspects as well? Yes!
That's why this blog exists. Here I give you the tools you need to allow your children to learn by absorbing their environment without the need to figure out the "nitty-gritty."
Jones Mom gives you the advice and tools you need to give your little ones a beautiful, peaceful, and effective home-learning experience.
Who is Jones Mom?
Hey everyone! My name is Emily Jones and I live in middle Tennessee. I am married to the most wonderful and supportive man in the world named Jordan. Together we have two amazing children; a daughter named Emilia and a son named Journey. We stay busy with homeschooling our children and running our (very) small-scale family farm.
I enjoy writing and traveling along with showing my children the beauty in the simple things life has to offer. I truly love doing everything I can to enrich their lives. Watching them learn and grow more and more every day continuously gives me so much joy. Sharing our experiences and lessons learned with other parents is truly rewarding.
