Summary of Law 7: The completion, test, and confirmation of the work of teaching must be made by review and application. Gregory posits not only that review and application are the “essential conditions of all true teaching,” but also that “not to review is to leave the job half done.” The aim of reviewing material is threefold:
Our home schools are really only as strong as our relationships with our kids, and I wince as I say that, but I will say it because it's true. The final section of the homeschool audit asks you to examine your relationships. What causes conflict in your homeschool day? How can you defuse it rather than escalate it? These issues are the formation of character - ours and our kids’. As Rachel Jankovic says, “Sin is a fact of life. It is the way we deal with it that changes ours.” This section is not about ridding ourselves or our kids of sin, because that’s impossible. But it is about thinking of strategies to help us deal with it appropriately. It's the small things that add up and make an atmosphere and a relationship. Choose one small habit to build into your routine this next term. Small but significant changes snowball into large and significant changes.
