Christian Singles and the Beginning of Dating

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — @ 4:09 pm

Many Christian singles have been asking when is the right time to start dating again, many of whom are divorcees. The best thing you can do is ask questions that will truly build your life in the ways of God and in your romantic life as a Christian single, a life that is overwhelmed by peace, good health and joy. Divorced Christian singles are people who have faced a lot in the line of love and dating. They are not like youthful Christian singles, who are upbeat about entering the world of Christian dating with zeal and enthusiasm of finding their right match. The life of a divorced Christian individual who has been harboring ideas of re-entering the world of dating is mired by many thoughts and factors. The Christian divorcee has been hurt before, probably by the divorce, and he/she might not be ready to start another dating instance so soon. They first take their time as they deduce themselves and grovel over what really went wrong. It is after some time that sees a lot of soul searching on their part that they eventually decide to try out dating again. Christian singles are then left with the question of whether when, how and with whom to start a Christian dating. Many facts that govern their beginning of dating surround them, and sometimes making a decision is really hard. The first thing that crosses the mind of these Christian singles is the fact that the court of the Union must have occasioned and accepted their divorce but does the Bible, and God in that instance, accepted it? This is not a problem to torture your mind at all, since the bible is categorical. In the book of Mathew 5:32, the bible accepts your divorce if at all the other partner to the relationship had been committing fornication or sexually endeavors outside your marriage. The bible also gives the Christian singles the right to begin dating once more, as Corinthians 7:15 say that you can if your partner is not a believer of the Christian doctrine and he/she has chosen to leave your union. You are a Christian and since the bible is your guide and God your witness, there must be a reason for your divorce which the bible acknowledges, and if it is absent you have no choice but to remain with your spouse and remain faithful. You do not belong to the Christian singles circle and you are not alone. This is the predicament of many and you should not worry; pray for your partner as you continue with your life, and don’t forget to ask God to restore your marriage to what it were in the beginning. In addition, in case the other partner who has already divorced you has decided to marry again, you can go ahead with a novel Christian dating as it fits the criteria set by Mathew 5, and even consider marrying again, in case the Lord God has put in your heart that you do so.

Basic Tips on How to Homeschool Your Children

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — @ 4:02 pm

 

It is estimated that around 1 million students are homeschooled in the United States every year. Homeschooling is an excellent way to stay close to your children; give them the proper care they need while helping them become well-rounded adults. Homeschooling allows you individualize; to find education that is best suited for your children.

Reasons for Homeschooling vs Public School

Find out whether you share the following thoughts about why homeschooling is required: (i) Parents have religious belief that they can provide better education at home; (ii) Parents thinking that the environment at school will not be congenial for their children; (iii) Homeschooling will help develop character and morality of a child; (iv) There are subjects taught at schools that are not in accordance with the faith, thinking of the parents; (v) The child has special needs or disabilities.

Now, the question arises whether or not homeschooling has any adverse affects on a child’s education; maybe not. Homeschooled children have above average test results on the ACT and SAT college entrance exams. Also, homeschooled kids are sometimes better at social adjustment than kids who go to school. The way the homeschooled children make up for not attending a regular school is by participating in homeschool support groups, scouting, church or faith based and recreational activities, and other associations.

Getting Started with Homeschooling

One way of knowing more about homeschooling is by joining local support groups. Such groups can be found by word of mouth or through public or private schools, religious groups, or state or national associations. Each state has at least one homeschooling association. These groups offer necessary advice and information and hold conferences at which families who school at home discuss legal, philosophical, and teaching issues. Some school districts allow homeschoolers to attend public school part-time.

Following are different homeschool methods: (i) Diane Lockman’s authentic classical trivium (The Classical Scholar) unit studies, (ii) Charlotte Mason’s methodology, (iii) Montessori or Waldorf methods, and (iv) eclectic blends of different styles.

Is Homeschooling for Everyone?

Maybe not. Homeschooling is can be hard  work. It can also be expensive, as you have to pay for educational materials and extracurricular activities. You may also be faced with a loss of income if one parent has to quit a job to homeschool. References: The Responsibilities of Homeschooling means being able to devote yourself to your children all day through. You, as a parent will be fully responsible for the direction, depth, and breadth of your child’s education for the rest of their life. This is a very big responsibility and should not be taken lightly,homeschooling vs public school.

Ask yourself these questions:  What is your choice homeschooling vs public school? What is your choice? Why do you think you want to homeschool? What is it that your child will be able to achieve by being homeschooled that he or she will not receive in a regular school? What do you consider a “good” education? These questions can help you make the decision, and help you create the right environment that will be best for your children.

What is the best homeschooling cirriculum for a first grader?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — @ 4:02 pm

I am new to homeschooling my son, and I am involved with some local homeschooling groups. But, I am having some troubles with ideas on how to keep a schedule for my son and what to do with him during the day sometimes.

Do you think it is better to have a planned and scheduled cirriculum, just keep his days busy with stuff – crafts, reading, projects – and ditch a play by play schedule, or do you have any other more ecclectic ideas?

Homeschooled Children Continue Outperforming Their Public School Counterparts as Homeschooling Increases in Popularity

In America, there was a time when the idea of homeschooling raised eyebrows of concern and could result in a visit from social services. A lack of trust by the government and public in general in a parent’s ability to educate their own children made homeschooling a bit of a stigma.

Even today in some circles, there are still many “old school” thinkers that go so far as to say that homeschooling is tantamount to deliberate child abuse. As ridiculous as that sounds to most of us, overcoming such ignorance has been a problem for some parents looking into homeschooling.

Overseas, it can be much worse. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany, a law instituted under Hitler and still enforced today. German families who choose to home school must do so in secret and run the risk of arrest; or worse, having the state take their children away.

Performance of home schools versus public and private schools

It doesn’t take much effort or investigation to discover that homeschoolers excel above their public school counter parts in nearly every category. According to a study conducted by Dr. Lawrence Rudner:

• The average home schooled 8th grade student performs four grade levels above the national average.

• One in four home school students are enrolled in a grade level that is above their age level.

• In every grade and in every subject, home schooled students outperform both public and private school students.

Other studies confirm these findings, showing that home schooled students have a much higher college entry rate, score higher on SAT’s and ACT’s, have a higher rate of college graduation, and earn higher incomes in the workforce.

These numbers come despite the fact that about 25% of parents in America who choose to home school either never attended college, or attended but never received a degree. An additional 7-10% have only an Associate degree.

Why do homeschooled children perform so well?

The advantages to homeschooling are many, and are quite revealing as to why homeschooled children do so well.

One on one attention – Whenever a child needs assistance, the parent is there to give him or her full attention, whereas in public schools a teacher must divide their attention between dozens of children.

Ability to focus more time where needed – If a student excels in math, but flounders in science, then a parent can very easily devote as much time as is needed to teaching science. Public schools are regimented, with each subject receiving equal time regardless as to the performance of the student.

Homeschooled students move at their own pace – If a student excels in math then they can advance much quicker than students in a public school, where all students are required to move at the same pace.

Diminished distractions – The parents control the environment, and there is no peer pressure from other students trying to talk a homeschooled student into doing things other than school work or study.

Do parents need some kind of special training or certification?

Some states highly regulate home schools, requiring training and certification in some instances. However, studies show that there is virtually no difference in performance between homeschooled students in highly regulated states versus homeschooled students in states with little or no regulation.

The truth is that homeschooling is gaining in popularity and as such, more and more information and help materials are becoming available. The modern homeschooling parent can now effectively teach their children, regardless of the parent’s own education level, thanks to pre-developed curriculums such as those provided by Heritage Home School Academy.

Parents today can use these curriculums to guide their children. Some curriculums are so effective that parents can study ahead of their children in any subject for which they are lacking and effectively teach the same subject to their children. Furthermore, many children often “learn to learn,” reaching a point where they are able to teach themselves and follow a curriculum with little interaction required from the parent.

Each year more families choose to start homeschooling, spreading knowledge about its benefits, and erasing old stigmas along the way. For more information about homeschooling and home school curriculums, visit Heritage Home School Academy.

Heritage Home School Academy is a provider of accredited home school curriculums for grades K-12. Heritage also provides a Christian home school curriculum based on the Bible for those wishing to incorporate Christian values into their homeschooling, something that is outlawed in public schools.
