Parent and Teacher

My daughter and I were having a particularly challenging day getting through her reading lesson.  A thought occurred to me as I found myself on the closer side of frustration.  I am a parent and a teacher. What a great thing, though very challenging.  As I thought of the opportunity to be my child’s teacher–although tough at times–I realized the many things I received from engaging in her teaching moments.

The opportunity to see the knowledge in her eyes
Practice my creativity 
Engage in her learning ideas and the amusement that comes as she works to form her ideas
The great opportunity to exercise my patience

Being a parent and a teacher can be a rocky road though there are many perks and rewards too! What are your thoughts on being a parent and a teacher?
