There was a time when everyone in the village/community knew just about everyone…or they at least knew something about them.  Today, that is all but gone…sadly.  Using ourselves as an example, we have lived in a community of 70 homes (small village)for close to 6 years.  However, I can only count on one hand the neighbors I know.

10 good tips for homeschooling your children

By Mary Jo Bratton

Are you considering homeschooling your children, but don’t know where to start? The following 10 tips will help answer some of your questions.


Read, read, read

But don’t read too many “This is the way to teach your child” books. You’ll end up confused and convinced that you can’t do it. Instead, read a few “how-to” books and lots of books on world history, philosophy, religion, biology, psychology, literature, and other topics. If you don’t know where to start, go to the library and look up all the children’s books on the subject in which you’re interested. The children’s books will give you an overview, with easy-to-understand explanations that provide a base for more advanced learning.


Relax: You’re not having school-at-home; you’re homeschooling

Say the word “school” out loud. What’s the scenario that comes to mind? Desks. Chalk dust. A U.S. flag in the corner. Teacher up front, lecturing to sleepy students. Lockers slamming. Bells ringing. Boring.

“School-at-home” is an image that needs to be ditched, in favor of “homeschooling.” Rid yourself of the idea that having school means sitting at a desk in a stuffy room, taking notes for six hours a day while Mom lectures endlessly about history, biology, algebra, and French. When you homeschool, the emphasis is on “home.” Sitting on the sofa while you do math problems, studying insect life under a dead log in the back yard, asking questions in the car on the way to the library, reading Western biographies instead of dry history textbooks, and writing papers about the novels of Agatha Christie or the Titanic or motorcycles, instead of “What I Did Last Summer.” It is also playing with your brothers and sisters at recess, and wearing what you like to wear, not what the group says is “in style.”
