Best of Life as a Lifeschooler: Co-ops: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

co-opsWe hope you are enjoying your summer break!  Here’s one of our best episodes to brighten your summer day: What makes homeschool co-ops good? And what makes them bad or downright ugly? Are there certain things that we should look for when we try to find a co-op?

On this episode, veteran homeschooler Christi Deason and I tackle the issue of homeschool co-ops and try to answer these questions. When Christi was homeschooling her children, the landscape of homeschooling and co-ops looked different than it does now. We talk about what has changed and where we see problems developing.

It seems everyone these days who homeschools is involved in a homeschool co-op of some sort. In fact, in the survey we conducted before this interview, all the respondents except one indicated that they had been involved in a co-op at some point in their homeschooling. But is it truly necessary for all families to even be involved in a co-op?

Our opinion is, simply, no. What works for some, may not work for your family. And there is nothing wrong with being your child’s sole teacher! For the homeschool pioneers, this was normal. Remember, homeschooling is about freedom, and your children will be successful if you follow the Lord’s leading.

So how do you know if a co-op is right for your family? We give some suggestions to help you determine if a homeschool co-op is right for you and some ideas of what to look for. Here are a few tips:

  • Look for something small
  • Look for something with families you know and respect
  • If your children are young, keep it fun-focused (not academic)
  • Look for something with some flexibility
  • Look for something that fills a true need

Here are some other things to remember:

  • Pray first and ask God if this is the right direction for your family
  • Be okay with the fact that what works this year may not work another year
  • Always be willing to “shift” if things don’t work out

There are some great co-ops out there! Just be careful to pray first and be discerning during the vetting process. Know what you want and don’t settle for any homeschool co-op simply because you think you need to. At the end of the journey, YOU are the teacher and you and your spouse are the ones responsible for your children’s education. God will show you what is best if you trust Him.

HSHSP Ep 168: Dealing with Discouragement in Homeschool High School

This week on HSHSP Ep 168: Dealing with Discouragement in Homeschool High School.

HSHSP Ep 168: Dealing with Discouragement in Homeschool High School. Life is rarely perfect, most of the time life is simply real. But that can be really discouraging. Here's are our tips for dealing with discouragement in homeschooling high school. #HomeschoolHighSchool #HomeschoolHighSchoolPodcast #DealingWithDiscouragement

 

HSHSP Ep 168: Dealing with Discouragement in Homeschool High School

There’s no such thing as a Pinterest-perfect life. There’s no such thing as a Pinterest-perfect mom. Not even a homeschool mom, as much as we would like to try!

Everyone of us (even your 7Sisters- who are just like you, only older) have had periods of discouragement. It’s just part of real life! Join Kym and Vicki as they get real about when life gets real and they get real discouraged. AND what they do about it.

 

Having a teenager and being a mom means there are two humans working together on homeschooling high school (or even more humans working on homeschooling high school). Real humans sometimes have times of discouragement. We shouldn’t ignore the feelings, we should acknowledge it and then decide what to do about it.

Kym reminds us the first thing to do when feeling discouragement is: PRAY! When we tell God what our lives are like, we are being real and honest (like the Psalms). Then it is wise to sit and listen, allowing God’s creativity to work in our souls so we find the creativity to handle the discouragement in a positive, helpful way.

Do you feel discouraged even in your prayer? God cares. Talk to him about that. He wants our relationship, our honest relationship. Lean into the discouragement in God’s presence, even if it feels *not good enough*…be real with God!

Go for a walk. This can be one of the best ways to pray! It can also be a great way to allow your creativity to happen or simply allow your brain to rest and notice the beautiful things God has made. Here are some other mindful things you can do.

Do some deep breathing. Allow yourself to breathe in, asking God for help. Then exhale, thanking him for help. The oxygen will lower your stress hormones and help you physically feel calmer. Download Vicki’s freebie guide to deep breathing: Progressive Relaxation.

Tell someone you trust and ask for a *processing session*. Tell them they don’t need to fix it, just listen…and maybe agree: *That’s really hard!*

Practice self-awareness. Vicki talks about examining the 3W’s of life:

Listen to what is going on for your teen. Don’t practice a full frontal attack at what he/she is doing or thinking wrong. Instead, take a walk or drive together and just listen. Then ask them to talk out the process, and ask wha they believe the outcomes will be. Sometimes the teens will recalibrate themselves. However, sometimes, we must allow them to make their own mistakes. (Just like God sometimes does with us.) Then TRUST God to be the healer and redeemer our teen needs and TRUST God’s infinite love for our kids.

Remember: It is better to get out of God’s way and stay where we belong: on our needs in prayer. And get some prayer support from friends you can trust.

Join Vicki and Kym for an encouraging discussion about dealing with discouragement.

But first, I want to recommend to you the the elementary language arts curriculum designed to motivate students. I used my training as a psychologist and my experience teaching language arts to my own and my friends’ kids to create the curriculum I always wanted. To see if Grammar Galaxy is going to motivate your kids like it has thousands of other students, go to GrammarGalaxyBooks.com. I’m thrilled that Grammar Galaxy was recently given a Reader Favorite Award by readers of Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

Indoctrination Through Education

Indoctrination Through Education | Is indoctrination through education true? As homeschoolers we realize the importance of educating our children, but do you realize what is happening all around you? Our children, whether we are aware of it or not are effected by indoctrination through education! | #podcast #homeschoolpodcast #bridgewayproud #bridgewayacademyIs indoctrination through education true? As homeschoolers we realize the importance of educating our children, but do you realize what is happening all around you? Our children, whether we are aware of it or not are affected by indoctrination through education!

Indoctrination Through Education – Episode 353

We homeschool for many different reasons. I began homeschooling because my son was having difficulty learning and I happened to be an educator with a certification in specific learning disabilities and early childhood education. However, my reasons for homeschooling my subsequent children all had to do with religious reasons. I wanted to teach my children to think for themselves, be grounded in Scripture and allow them access to books that would stretch them academically and the ability to have time to think. If you have listened to my podcasts this is one thing I talk about often, the ability for children to think!

Thinking is an art as well as reason. Our children need to learn how to discern what they hear and how to make decisions for themselves. Does this mean we abdicate our role as parents? Absolutely not!

Indoctrination through education is happening in the local public schools, private schools, universities and colleges as well as the charter schools or online schools that are government-funded. What is indoctrination? I believe the terminology of the past has changed, indoctrination on the left or the right is often bantered around, but indoctrination is the repetition of philosophy or ideology that if repeated enough is believed as truth. Indoctrination happens when kids don’t think for themselves. Indoctrination happens when there is an absence of thought!

Even Hitler realized this when he was quoted as saying, “Slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea.” (He wrote in Mein Kampf.)

We hear it all the time, slogans and sound bites. We believe things that are not true. Need an example? “We only use 10% of our brains,” is an untruth that many people believe.

David Coleman, who graduated from Yale graduate and was a Rhodes Scholar is the architect of Common Core. While this podcast is not addressing Common Core in detail, know that he has set out along with a group of “education reformers” to change the landscape of American Education, which most of us believe is for the worse. In a nutshell, Common Core teaches kids to think about thinking (and causes confusion) while it pushes kids to learn — or the “process of learning” it is all meaningless. The result is kids who don’t care. For example, look at common core math problems that have made their rounds on social media. The false news surrounding this graphic I am using as an example is that it says it will teach the kids crucial problem-solving skills. All it does is confuse kids. Here is a sample graphic. 

Keys To Indoctrination In Education:

  1. Mediocre and confusing education
    • Dummy down curriculum – think Common Core
    • Feelings vs. learning – not a combination of the two
    • Kids don’t care
    • No freedom of thought
  2. Polarization and Tribal Mentality
    • Following the familiar
    • Following the crowd
    • Believing what you hear repeated
    • No facts or reason – only feelings
    • Illusionary truth effect
  3. Revisionist History
    • Falsifying facts with agendas (homophobe and white nationalism cliches)
    • Facts distorted
    • American is portrayed as a ruthless nation while other nations are elevated
    • The world stage is exalted with other nations held up as sterling examples

Absolutes are given a backstage in the classroom, movies, and in social media, it is frowned upon! There are no absolutes only relativism. There is no independent thought only skills without content-driven outcomes. Kids are trained in the process of doing math, not on the math facts themselves. After all, we have smartphones and Google to help with our answers. Right?

Help! How Do We Combat Indoctrination In Education?

  1. Teach Kids To Have Independent Thoughts
    • Present ideas and allow for discussion.
    • Open-ended discussions
    • Allow for thoughts that may conflict with yours
    • Expect factual representation
  2. Questions
    • Ask why
    • Multiple sources of reference
    • Primary sources and documents
  3. Educated Teachers
    • Parents, know your stuff!
    • Clear understanding and though
    • Simplify
    • Defend position

A person who thinks will realize when they are being taught propaganda. (Creationism vs. Evolution.) If kids receive information passively it doesn’t matter what you teach them, they will not be in a position to learn. For example fiction, and the humanities has been removed from most curriculums and the richness of language is all but forgotten. (Truth Seekers Mystery Series – fiction with fact.)

Until we teach our children to question, to think for themselves and to ground their beliefs in truth (God), we will have a fallen generation that is indoctrinated by the things they hear in the media (soundbites over and over again) without caring to learn what really matters.

Flexibility and Adaptability: Foreign Language Adaptability with Ali Thomas of NiHao Chinese

Guest Ali Thomas, co-owner of NiHao Chinese, is here with us today talking about Flexibility and Adaptability, especially in regards to Foreign Language Acquisition. #podcastGuest Ali Thomas, co-owner of NiHao Chinese, is here with us today talking about Flexibility and Adaptability, especially in regards to Foreign Language Acquisition.

Learning a foreign language and international travel helps you understand people and cultures different than yourself- develops flexibility and adaptability as well as empathy and compassion.

When Ali was a young adult she traveled alone to Nghệ An Province in Viet Nam.

Trying new things may include failing. We need to look at  failing is just a jumping off point- we have to lean into the fear- and realize that no one is a professional at facing down fear.

  1. First time we do something is the hardest- but we learn what’s possible.
  2. We have to be willing to course correct.
  3. Develops our human gift of curiosity

Professor Joe Fuller of Harvard Business School- we are preparing our kids for jobs that don’t exist yet, work and industries are changing quickly but the one constant students need regardless of the future is Soft Skills. Emotional IQ is the commodity of the future!

  • You can’t outsource them
  • They can’t be digitized

Using Music to Share the Love of Homeopathy with Jayna Ray

Jayna Ray shares with Sue her songs about Homeopathy on this week's podcast.This week on Homeopathy for Mommies, Sue interview musician Jayna Ray about using music to share the love of homeopathy.  Sue met Jayna on her recent trip to Washington DC with Americans for Homeopathy Choice.  Here is an excerpt from Jayna’s bio:

Jayna Ray grew up in Southern Oregon, and has always had a passion for music and nature. At age 4, she remembers making up her first song on her great grandmothers piano. She began taking piano lessons at age 6, and as a teen learned to play the guitar which is when her songwriting skills really started to develop.  In life Jayna has struggled with depression and an autoimmune disease which would later motivate her to become more awake to her subconscious beliefs, inspiring her to write many songs about love, forgiveness, and healing. After marrying her bestie and becoming a mother of 4 amazing boys, Jayna embarked on a healing journey and became very passionate about what she experienced, and in her mid-thirties became determined to overcome the fear of sharing these songs. Many inspirations come from nature itself, and also the teachings of spiritual teachers.  Her primary genres are Alternative Folk, Ambient folk, and some roots rock. She hopes her music will spread love and light, bringing peace and joy to listeners.

Teaching a Providential View of History

teaching a providential view of history

Teaching a Providential View of History

When teaching a providential view of history, our view of history isn’t that there is a “Christian history” and then “secular history.” All of history is God’s story, it’s His Story. His working with people, places, and events to bring about his Kingdom, rule, and reign.

The main purpose of history is story of God.

Are we teaching the story of man or are we teaching the story of God? What has God done and what is God doing?

This is a Providential View of History.

What is the Big Picture of History?

Teaching a Providential View of History

In every era we need to go back and look at what God was doing. In every era of history God is at work. There’s never been a time when God hasn’t been at work.

This is why we focus on missionary work, the work of the church, etc. But, even in so-called secular history we see God working as the hand of Providence.

The decision to homeschool is difficult. There is so much to learn, and there are often radical changes that take place in your family. Unfortunately, not everyone will be supportive.

Well-meaning friends and relatives may believe you are going to “ruin your child.” How can you make sure that you have laid a good foundation for your child’s future? How can you respectfully defend your choice to those who disagree with you?

Many studies indicate that Christian youth are leaving the Church, and anti-Christian education has been linked as a major factor in this equation. The Bible is full of instructions on how God desires His children to be educated. IF GOD has a definite opinion about the issue of education, wouldn’t you desire to find out what it is and how best to implement HIS WISDOM? Order your copy here.
