If you've homeschooled for any length of time, there's a very good chance that you've been asked the socialization question. It's some form of "Aren't you worried about your kids being socialized?" When that question gets asked, I use it as a chance to gently educate the one asking on how we, as homeschoolers, could POSSIBLY still socialize. This question is asked by two types of people and for two different reasons. The first type of person is the one who pictures homeschoolers as hermits, and they don't know much at all about homeschooling. The second type is the potential homeschooler. They like the idea of homeschooling, but they have questions, and this is one of them because they're so accustomed to "school" being equated to "socialization" because their student has friends at the school. They don't know how to fill that particular void.

"We must derive our theory of education from our philosophy of life. The problem turns out to be a religious problem."

-T.S. Eliot


Public education in this country was originally founded on the belief that the people must be taught to read and study Scripture.

It was called the "Ye Old Deluder Satan Act." This act established free public education in the American colony of Massachusetts in 1647, with similar acts soon adopted in each of the other New England colonies (with the exception of Rhode Island). It was enacted because it was the "one chief project of ye old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of the Scriptures." This law required every town with 50 or more families to hire and maintain a teacher to instruct all children in reading and writing for the purpose of teaching them to read the Bible

The other day, I attended a memorial service at my church. When it was time to get ready, I went to my closet and picked out a dark skirt. I chose a top that was a fall color but muted. Nothing flashy, but still dressy enough. Since the skirt and top were both solid colors, I chose a long necklace that would break up the plain expanse of burgundy. I added boots, and my outfit was complete.

Is handwriting difficult for your children? Do they complain of pain in their hand after only writing a sentence or two? Do they have trouble expressing their thoughts on paper but have no problem verbally sharing them with you? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this post is for you.

You’ve heard that BJU Press Homeschool has a great biblical worldview throughout its curriculum. You’ve heard about the excellent critical thinking skills it encourages. You’ve also heard that there are workbooks. When you have a child who physically struggles with writing, workbooks may be a deciding factor when looking for curricula that will fit their needs. I want to encourage you that using BJU Press Homeschool materials when writing is a struggle is possible.

Our homeschool journey began 15 years ago. We decided to do some preschool work with our oldest son, who was five at the time. The summer before his preschool year, our second son was almost two years old, and I was also pregnant with our third child, who was scheduled to be born in October. I decided that since the preschool video course was so short, and I was going to have my hands full, it would be best to do the video course. That would provide consistency during that busy stage in our family's life.

Like any child, an advanced student needs you to customize the curriculum to suit his particular needs. If you have a super speller on your hands, you don't need to skip levels or even lists. Instead, try using some of these ideas to adapt the curriculum to fit your child.

Standardized testing is unlike any other academic test that kids experience. Since it's so different, I rec-ommend a little prep work. And no, I'm not talking about study guides and filling in little bubbles. Please go out together and play some basketball!
