So a lot has gone on since my first post, Peeling Away the Layers. Sorry, very busy establishing our rhythm. I was not able to post for a while! I quickly realized that my daughter who was in Preschool needed some de-schooling. As a family we needed a rhythm before we could start homeschooling. As a family we needed to decompress because of how hectic our therapy and schooling schedule was.
As soon as we decided to remove our daughter from preschool, we noticed that many "sensory integration dysfunctions" suddenly disappeared. This happened within three days! Then we noticed significant improvement in speech. Following that, my daughter's occupational therapist has now said that she no longer needs occupational therapy for sensory integration or fine motor! We are delighted! But this lead me to ask the question, "What happened this month???"
Then we realized, (I also had suspected this) our family didn't have a rhythm that was calming and nurturing to our souls. We were booked solid, running here and there, doing what we were told by well meaning people such as doctors, therapists, and teachers. Everyday was different as far as schedules and we were lucky to fit in anything fun!
Well now that we have de-schooled and have an established a family rhythm, we are seeing the healing effects begin and in such a short time period! We are so thankful to have found the Waldorf method because it has provided us a healing and nurturing foundation. Waldorf also speaks to our hearts. It just resinates with us as a family and we especially see this in our children. Even my son who is two and a half has changed significantly. Again, his language and speech has improved and he is very calm.
I would like to thank all who have inspired me with your wonderful blogs and supported this life changing experience. We are so thankful to all the connections we have made through this blog.
All we could say is Waldorf Homeschooling and Rhythms bring peace to our family. Has anyone else noticed this significant healing after beginning to homeschool? Please leave me comment to let me know about your experience. Thanks! Maria
