When Does Homeschool Begin?

When does Homeschooling Begin?  With Dr. Jan Bedell, the Brain Coach!Most people don’t think about educating their children until pre-school age. In this episode, the Brain Coach lets you in on some tips that will save you hours of effort in later years.  When children go through ALL the developmental steps that God intended, the foundation for successful education is laid.  Children will then be ready for more formal education.  It is our belief that these steps are so strategic that learning challenges and even labels like ADD, ADHD and reading difficulties can be avoided when the developmental foundation is fully functional.

Between birth and two years of age, a child’s brain grows at explosive rates.  Learning to “input” information in the form of sensory involvement (auditory, visual, tactile, smells and tastes) can accelerate brain growth. This causes the development/formation of proper neurological pathways, which resemble super highways.  When the networks of super highways exist, the brain is able to take the most efficient route in accomplishing a task.  You will learn to use those strategic moments in your day to help your infant be “home schooled” from birth.

MBFLP – Homeschooling Boys

Radio Show Homeschooling Boys

Homeschooling is a great option for families with sons because frankly, institutional classrooms are not very friendly to normal, active, distractible young boys. On the other hand, the same traits which make it hard to teach boys in a schoolroom setting can make it challenging at home, too! This week we talk about how boys learn differently, and how you can work with their particular style to make education both effective and enjoyable — for them and for their teacher!
