How to get started with home schooling?

How to get started with home schooling?
How to get started with home schooling? Education being a very important aspect of a human being’s existence is needed to nurture the child’s craft, hone his/her talents, and provide him/her with all the possible answers to all of the wonders of this world. We, the parents know this fact, and this is why we would always want the best for our children. In this respect, when the concept of homeschooling was introduced into the society, we have been astonished by the fact that there are other ways in educating our children. At first, opting for home schooling is an overwhelming matter, as most of the parents think that it is impossible to teach a child through home schooling method. However, on its basic concept, homeschooling refers to the alternative way of educating children. It is different from the usual type of schooling because the learning process is done at home and the teachers are usually the parents themselves. A particular type of teaching method obtained in a different institution is used and that provides the actual homeschooling programs. Like with many other types of education, homeschooling has provided many advantages and benefits to both parents and children. This is why many parents opted for home schooling in providing their child with the indispensable education that their children need. Some parents may find homeschooling a daunting task. For ones who find homeschooling a bit of an overwhelming task, here is a list of useful tips on how to get you started in homeschooling your child:

1. Decide

The problem that most parents face when opting for home schooling is the fact that they find it hard to finally decide whether to home school their child or not. Deciding on this kind of thing is relatively important especially because the future of the child is dependent on it. The choice should be based on the capacity of the parents to conform to the requirements in homeschooling their child. If they are able to wholly participate with whatever items were entailed in the program in order to provide the best education for their children, then a decision has to follow.

2. Process

You should keep in mind that homeschooling is not a one or two-time event, but rather – it is a process. Since you are aware of this, should take things one at a time. For instance, if you have a pre-school child, you should focus more on what pre-school students should learn. You should not delve more on how to teach higher levels of education that are fit for students in higher levels.

3. State laws

Get familiar with your state laws regarding homeschooling, as each state in the US has its own laws regarding homeschooling. It is best to know what your state asserts about homeschooling so that you can provide the best education for your children in conformity with the law.

4. Support group

Homeschooling should not be the only the responsibility of the parents. This is the reason why it is important to find a local “support group” where you can mingle with other homeschoolers, who can provide you with additional pointers regarding the process. Each member of the “support group” can help each other regarding the best technique in teaching the children.

5. Homework

You will get started on the right track by doing your homework, before beginning the homeschooling. In this manner, you will be able to know the important details you need to be familiar with, in order to provide the best education for your children. Knowing in advance, what you have to do, will give you the best guidance in homeschooling.

6. Child’s learning manner

Lear the way your child learns best. It is best to assess your child’s learning manner before you choose a particular homeschooling method. Conforming to your child’s learning manner will provide the best way to your homeschool your child. As there are many choices available when teaching your child through a homeschool program, it is still best to always pattern the program that you will choose on your child’s learning style.

7. Organize

Get the things needed for the homeschooling organised. Just like in a typical school – homeschooling your children would need different materials and a proper place where they can easily and comfortably learn new things each day. Therefore it is best to organise the place where you will be learning first, by providing an adequate space for the learning. Most children would respond to the process easily if they are comfortable with the place where their classes are held.

8. Budget

Plan how much money you will need to spend on organising the homeschooling. Some parents tend to over indulge with the materials needed in homeschooling, but this is not necessarily a good option. Just because you have lowered your expenses with opting to home school, compared to sending your children into a typical public or private school, does not have to mean that you can spend the equal amount of money or more. Set a budget for homeschooling, as there are many books and other materials that can be found on the Internet which is definitely cheaper. Homeschooling is not just a process, but also a lifestyle. It is something that you should be best acquainted with, in order to give your children the best possible education they need.  

How to boost confidence in children?

How to boost confidence in children?

How to boost confidence in children? VIRTUE LESSONS: What parents should not do

Luckily, there is no set formula on how to raise children, because each child is different, unique, so parent’s relationships with their children are one of a kind. Knowing this, when you are trying to bring up your child, you should always have in mind – that there are things which are counterproductive when talking with a child (trying to correct him/her in her/his action) and it is a question of what parents should not do under any condition. I will try to explain these points in the following paragraphs: If you want to bring up the child with a good understanding of moral values and a good discipline, you must first develop the child’s consciousness a routine to do it’s best in the tasks to generate the positive image of his/herself. You must avoid anything that can destroy this positive image. Out of ignorance, anger, annoyance, irritation and sometimes desperation, parents use lawful methods in raising their children. The commandment “Thou shall not sin”, should be remembered, to avoid using any of the following methods:

NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO HUMILIATE THE CHILD

With every negative comment to the child, you erode his/her confidence.

NO THREATS

With every threat to the child, you teach him/her to become afraid of you, or even hate us. Threats are absolutely useless, as they do not improve the behaviour of the child.

NO EXTORT PROMISES

A promise means nothing to a small child. The promise, the same way as the threat, is more relevant in the future development as they understand more. The children live only in the present! If they are sensitive and conscientious, the exhortation of promises will develop own fault syndrome each time he/she breaks the promise. If he/she is not sensitive, it will teach him/her cynicism: when the words and reality differ from each other.

NO EXCESSIVE SPONSORING

It belittles the child in his own eyes, while excessive trusteeship gives her/him the idea, that he/she can not do anything. Parents can underestimate the ability of the child to do something independently, therefore it is necessary to accept the motto: “Never do for the child what he can do for him/herself “.

NO LONG TALKS

Long explanations, without any particular reason, mean to the child: “You are not capable of understanding simple things, you better listen what I am telling you now”.

NO DEMANDS ON IMMEDIATE OBEDIENCE

If your husband tells you: “Dear, leave everything that you are doing and prepare me a cup of tea!” Would you like this? This is how your child reacts when you are demanding to do something immediately. Try to give advice, before demanding anything.

NO PAMPERING

If it is a question of permissiveness, the child will feel that the parents are afraid to be firm in observance of borders, that they are afraid to say “no”. This boosts the confidence in the child, that all rules are not firm, and that they will stretch just under a little of pressure. Even though this can work within the home, it will be a bitter disappointment outside! If you indulge the child, you deprive him/her the opportunity to grow into a person who can adapt to any situation.

BE CONSISTENT IN THE RULES YOU MAKE

Consistency is necessary for the child, as he/she should know what he/she should expect. Confusion in following the rules – allowing one thing one day and forbidding the same on another day – does not promote good discipline. It confuses the child and he/she will not know what to expect from the parents next time.

NO UNNECESSARY MORALS

If you are ‘preaching’ too much, this instils a feeling of fault in the child. Then it leads to developing a negative self-image, which as mentioned, will lead to low self-esteem. All of the morals in the children’s world sum up to: What you have done is bad! or You are bad because you did this! How could have you done such a bad thing after doing so many good ones? Reprimand and critics on a regular basis decrease the child’s self-worth. Scientifically it is proven, that under such “strain” the child becomes ‘disconnected’, becomes paying less or no attention. It is his/her unique way of defence, which he/she quickly masters. As the child cannot be disconnected completely and eventually feels guilty, it is advisable that you measure the moral stories and try to be more proactive.

NO REQUEST TO DO THINGS THAT ARE INAPPROPRIATE FOR THE AGE OF THE CHILD

Do not expect a three-year-old child to obey like a six-year-old. You demand from her/him mature behaviour, that she/he is not capable of understanding. This affects the development of his consciousness in an undesirable manner. I hope you will find the advice on your children upbringing useful and that will try to implement some of them not only in the general building of their characters but also in helping them in their educational growth.

Who’s teaching the babies? New revolutionary edu resources

Who’s teaching the babies? New revolutionary edu resources   Establish and affirm a baby’s unique identity and purpose Maybe you already know that babies’ development begins in the mothers’ womb, but what you might know is that you can teach the babies while they are in the mothers’ womb. It might seem odd to you, but for Dr. Melodye Hilton it does not seem this ways, as she has developed the page “Who’s Teaching the Babies?™”, a new Christian-based resource, that is providing curriculum and educational tools for daycares, caregivers and churches. There is no better place to establish the foundational reason for being, than at the beginning—conception. Dr. Hilton says, “Through science and proven experience, we have recognized the life-empowering results of teaching babies in the most crucial and foundational window of opportunity—conception through three years.” What you are asking yourself is: How can people teach babies? Fact that we should have in mind are the following: An infant’s brain begins to form just three weeks after conception. During this time, trillions of neurons are produced, reaching a lifetime high before birth. Synapses – connections between cells in the brain – are rapidly developed, with memory beginning at only four months in utero. In this vital stage of life, it has been scientifically proven that is the foundational launching point for a human being’s entire life. The experiences, interactions, social connections, and words received during this once-in-a-lifetime developmental stage, are building the framework for the child’s future. Not only are personality and intellect shaped during this time, but also habitual thought patterns, identity, emotional health, and the ability to trust. WTTB™ is created to meet this core need in a healthy and life-giving way! Dr. Hilton has developed a series of teaching tools, that were meticulously designed with parents and grandparents in mind. Beyond in-home use, the easy-to-use format translates easily into individual and group settings, making it ideal for daycare centers and churches. With a vibrant and colourful display, friendly to use – Who’s Teaching the Babies?™ makes it appealing for babies and young children to receive not only education, but also validation as a significant and unique individual with meaningful purpose. Dr. Hilton emphasises that, “We can positively impact our future society if we are willing to invest into the babies and children of today. We can strengthen a generation to go against the odds of societal pressure and live successful and healthy lives.” Each baby is a valuable, precious, and worth the investment, as identity and destiny are established…one baby at a time!
