As a parent (A Christian parent in particular), your job is to raise a child into an adult: an adult who stands firmly on the Christ as a foundation; an adult who can take their rightful place in society; an adult who can fulfill their responsibilities and duties. "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 We want to raise children who is a mature adult without our added every-day support. Our safe standard will be pulled away from their every day life. This is as it should be.

"This is why we must make sure that our Standards are build firmly on the base. We want our children to stand firm in knowledge and will - in thought and act - in trust and faith. By building the scaffold to the standard, our children can trust it as they work. They trust not just because it's safe but they can trust that it won't lead their work astray. They can trust that the building will be sturdy, strong, and beautiful - not blown by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:11-16) - ideas that don't line up won't affect the building."

"That's what the scaffolding does. It helps your children learn how to make fitting connections, laying brick upon brick of ideas. It gives them a platform to stand on - or tie off to if they're too high up - that doesn't wriggle and writhe with the wind, their own movements, or unforeseen forces."

" I'm going to explore what scaffolding does and how it relates to educational lessons. I'd like to consider scaffolding from both the mom's and the child's perspective. I want to think about how to better scaffold lessons in my homeschool."

"INFJs are walking contradictions. We want to be noticed and appreciated, yet we hate attention. We want to make others feel happy and comfortable, yet doing so causes a great deal of stress for us at times. We like to be alone and are very independent, yet we yearn for companionship. We are able to think very logically, yet are willing to disregard logic if our intuition tells us something different. At times, being an INFJ can feel like being two people at once, and we regularly struggle with balancing these different personas."

Totally relate to this.
