How can you be more effective in your homeschooling? If you are like our family, then you feel that you still don’t have this homeschooling thing all figured out yet.
Most of the families I have spoken with, no matter the how long they’ve homeschooled, have said they are still learning and making adjustments. Yet, a simple change in your habits can help you be more effective.
As a homeschooling family we sometimes get some strange reactions and conversations when we share this with other people. Below are some funny animated videos that resemble some of the conversations we’ve had, as well as some extreme examples of homeschooling stereotypes.
What can a 6-year old teach you about your will to succeed? What my son is doing to get better at baseball is a great example of being willing to succeed.
I have a lot of interests. From Family to Business to Fitness to Homeschooling to Basketball to Personal Finance to Personal Branding to Personal Development…etc! I have long list of blogs and sites that I subscribe to that cater to my interests. It is very important that we read daily.
We are finishing our 3rd year of homeschool, and are more than knee deep in the homeschool lifestyle. This year is the 1st year that our entire family was involved. As we close out the school year I am even more excited and committed to continue this path. When you look at the benefits of homeschooling for your children and for you it is evident that Homeschooling is a No Brianer!
This is something I never thought I’d do. I am a very private person and do not share a lot of things that are personal to me. But here I am posting My Life Goals for the world to see! Who woulda thunk it!? Not me!
My hope for you in sharing my goals is that you will be inspired to dream bigger than ever, that you will be bold enough to pursue your goals, and if you have never set life goals after you finish reading this post you will sit down and start the process of writing your life goals.
I am not a big fan of the film “The Secret”, which was one of the biggest selling DVDs the year it was released (2006). I do believe that our thoughts are powerful, as everything that was ever created by man, or woman, originated in our minds. However, once a thought is conceived some action has to be taken. Many times the action(s) have to be done over and over again, in spite of difficulty or opposition. This to me is the The REAL Secret to Success and Achievement…
I hate excuses. It bothers me to the core when I hear people making excuses, and that includes hearing myself make excuses, as I am not immune to them. I preach and teach in my household all the time “unsuccessful people make excuses…successful people make it happen!” I have found one guaranteed way to get rid of any excuse.
I would not say that I am an avid reader, but I do really enjoy reading. Having a spouse and 3 kids to spend time with probably keeps me from reading more, but I try to spend time reading (books) daily. Here are some books that I have read this year, am currently reading, or plan to read soon.
The success of Tim Tebow has had a positive impact on families choosing to homeschool their children while pursuing athletics for them as well. Since being a homeschool dad I have noticed many similarities in homeschool education and athletic training. Those similarities lead me to believe that homeschooling and athletics are a perfect match!
