RAR #225: It's Just Data (What your data is REALLY telling you about your homeschool)
Why do we make things mean more than they actually mean?
We all do it.
We realize a kid doesn’t know how to tie their shoes at age 12, and we tell ourselves we’re forgetting to teach SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS.
We feed our kids frozen pizza for dinner twice in a week and think it means we don’t care about their health.
We sleep late and tell ourselves we’re lazy.
We have a late reader and think it means we’re not good at this “teaching reading” thing.
We make things mean what they don’t mean ALL THE TIME.
And today? Today we’re gonna talk about it.
I’m sharing something we’ve been talking about in Circle with Sarah, which is our homeschool coaching program in RAR Premium. Recently I did a couple of episodes on why we need to keep data in its place in our homeschool and not make things mean what they don’t mean.
I wanted you to hear it, so I’m sharing those two episodes in one RAR Podcast for you here.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Why you have to learn to separate the data from your self-worth and value
- How to make use of what the data is actually telling you
- Journal prompts to help you suss out what the data is telling you and what you’re making it mean
