For all kids, but especially for children that are homeschooled, it’s important that you have age-appropriate activities. Of course, that’s hard to do in a lot of situations. If you have an older child and a younger child at home, then there’s a good chance that the activities and even the types of entertainment that your kids enjoy are going to be geared for the older one. That leads to some problems for the younger one.
It doesn’t even have to do with something being “age appropriate” in the sense that the younger one is going to be exposed to things for which they’re not ready. It’s more about giving them some “me” time. If your younger kids are constantly exposed to adults and older kids and entertainment or activities that THEY like, then your younger one is eventually going to feel left out, at least to some extent. Do your little ones a favor and build some “me” time into their activities and entertainment throughout the day. If they watch TV, make sure they watch something separate from the older siblings…something geared towards their age. If they like to play computer games like all kids do, lol, have them play educational games for their grade level.
