Beginning Homeschooling

Mom with Laptop Beginning Homeschooling

Are you wondering if homeschooling might be the lifestyle for your family? Does the appeal of nurturing the flames of learning in your child, speak loudly to you? Maybe the frustration of seeing your child’s special gifts (or needs) being overlooked edges you toward the leap of home education. The speakers of Homeschooling 101 bring years of experience to bear on all of your questions. Answering those heart-wearying questions about socialization, patience and how-to opens the conference day. Understanding curriculum options, nurturing preschoolers into a lifetime love of learning and accepting your limitations are all part of the day.

A Vision for Homeschooling

Homeschool vision

 Do you have a “Vision” for your home school? It is important.  Vision draws us forward when life bogs us down.  Every home school parent knows there are tough days that sometimes drag into tough weeks.  Vision is the Light that will beckon in the wearying seasons.  In fact, a right Vision becomes a Legacy Light!  Do you remember singing this song with your children? 

Feeling Bogged Down? Refuse It!

The school year is whipping by and worries about progress sometimes cloud homeschooling skies at this point. It does not need to be that way. As home educators, we are accountable for our children’s education, but we must never forget, education is not all about the books. We teach children, not lessons. The academics of home education include a step-by-step process that requires discipline and diligence, but much more is learned along the way. Learning to persevere when a subject is hard (or just plain boring!) is a vital character lesson. While our children may argue that they will never use what they are learning (we said it, didn’t we?), we know they will encounter things in their future that will seem pointless too. Completing the task at hand is a valuable skill for life!
