A huge decision it is … homeschooling. Now that you’ve made
this decision to teach at home, the many questions you thought
you had now seem to have doubled. Doubled at least! Now one
question just seems to lead to three more. Questions will need
to be answered on curriculum, on testing and assessing. What
about the style of teaching and curriculum.
Have you check out and become familiar with all of the state and
local mandates concerning operating a home school in your area?
As a parent ...Read the rest of this entry »

While recently doing some research on the preschool learning
and preschool homeschool curriculum, and what type of preschool
activities would create a positive self motivation preschool
learning environment for the homeschool, I came across some
ideas that are so simple it was almost embarrassing that I had
to discover this through my ‘research’ time.
When one preschool teacher was asked ‘what is the one preschool
teaching tool or tools in your classroom that you could not do
without? ...Read the rest of this entry »

Grandparents, what better way to stay close to your grown
children than to advise them about important issues like the
dangers of public schools for your grandchildren? What better
way to feel younger if you offer to help homeschool your
When your children grow up and get careers of their own, that
doesn't mean you have to be lonely in a big, empty house and
lose contact with your kids. Helping to homeschool your
grandchildren can be a wonderful way for you to stay in close
and ...Read the rest of this entry »

Everyone is talking about the U.S. borders not being secure -
illegal aliens streaming over our borders, about securing our
broadband connections from hackers, and I was just curious about
the silence of securing our children's minds.
Has anyone been paying attention to our most precious treasure
being assaulted on a daily basis by the equivalent of illegal
aliens - a failing education system, drugs, violence, teen
pregnancy and immoral attacks on all levels? Our children's
spiritual borders ...Read the rest of this entry »

Helping New Parents and Infants Transition
Of all the research done on childcare and early childhood
education you'd think someone would do studies on the fear that
make couples looney in the head after they become parents. The
biggest thing for a new parent is fear. Fear of what they would
do if anything happened to their little Johnny or little Sue.
This advice was given to them by their loving and caring family,
friends, experts and professionals that never had a child. Truly
all of that ...Read the rest of this entry »

Flashes of memory stream into my consciousness. They take me
back thirty years plus. I was a boy then, a newcomer to a poor
and tough neighborhood. My parents, of moderate means and daring
to a fault, had decided to move there after my father had
accepted an editing job in the federal government. They had
taken a lease on a low-rent brick house, which was also
run-down, covered in filth, and littered with trash. I do not
mince my words: Previous tenants had been pigs that got along
with bugs ...Read the rest of this entry »

I believe that we have a right to know about the possibilities
of health risks that are associated with consumable products.
Our healthcare has been on a steady decline over the past years.
We are faced with more cancers than ever before, more illness
and sickness than ever before. I will not say that all of our
household products are causing the increase in the above
mentioned, but I will say that there are many sites that discuss
the toxin issue in our homes. Do your families and yourself ...Read the rest of this entry »

Keep Preschoolers Cool about School
The first day of school is a momentous occasion for parent and
child. Excitement, tinged with uncertainty, fills the weeks
before September. Anxious mothers coax awkward five-year-old
fingers to tie shoelaces (or give up and buy sneakers with
Velcro), while proud fathers urge their children to write their
own names or recite the alphabet.
It used to be that children entering the school system were
expected to have mastered certain skills before arriving, ...Read the rest of this entry »

I know this Mom. She homeschools her 5 children, plus she tutors
several other children that are dropped off at her house. AND
she's a Pastor's wife. AND she's working on fixing up the
fixer-upper they just moved into. Whenever I've been in her
house, it's been immaculate. Her children all have perfect
manners. They all seem to be way ahead of their grade level.
She's definitely gotta be a Homeschool Super Mom.
You're probably thinking of someone like this too, right?
Someone that made you ...Read the rest of this entry »

Kids have the attention span of an ant! Why wouldn’t they? They
have everything they could ever want given to them in a New York
