It's so exciting to see many families choosing the homeschool their children. As a homeschooling mom of many years and a HomeWorks by Precept Consultant, I have many parents asking for some tips for getting started. Here are my top seven tips for newbie homeschooling parents.

At the beginning of the school year, the day our curriculum comes in is called “Box Day”. But today is also “Box Day”. Today we are officially done with school and now it is time to “Box” the school year.

It’s that time of year again when most of us are wrapping up one school year and gearing up for the next. Even if you school year-round, you’re likely to have a some downtime while the kids enjoy the outdoors. Use that time to declutter your school space.

Kentucky is one of the easier states to comply with homeschool law. There are no mandatory test requirements, no requirements to be under an umbrella school, and no requirements to have your curriculum approved. It is important, however, to comply with other laws and requirements.

I am frequently asked the question, “Why in the world do you homeschool?” and the question is generally followed by, “I could never do that! I don’t have the patience!" or "You just don’t know my kids!" or "You must be so organized!” Inside my brain, I smile and think about this “loaded” question!

Mothering is a gift from God. Whether our children come to us naturally or through special circumstances, God gives us an instinct and a bond that is hard to describe, and it is strong and beautiful. We experience a quiet joy and a tender need to help our children in their growth. God created us to teach and nurture them.

We live, learn and serve in our community. For me, it makes sense to include community resources into my support network. These community resources will look different from city to city and from family to family. I have learned that even within my family, my children’s different needs and personalities means I tap into different community resources for them.

After more than ten years of homeschooling, two college graduates, and four girls currently at home, we have learned much about making our curriculum work for us – and not the other way around! The beauty of homeschooling is that each child can learn in a way that is as unique as they are. This may sound strange coming from someone who uses full-service BJU Press Distance Learning for each child, but we’ve found a way to customize the curriculum to provide each of our children with the inspiration, excitement, and interest they need to enjoy their homeschooling adventure!

Spring. It’s that magical time of year when grass and trees become lush and green. Flowers peek up out of the earth and beautify our yards. Birds serenade your morning wake-up routines and get you going with a song in your heart. It isn’t long before you start planning for warm weather activities and some time away from homeschool studies.

As my children got older, keeping up with grading got harder. Most of us, when we chose this journey, did not choose to homeschool because we were dreaming of grading and the great joy it would bring to our souls. I was finding myself grading on evenings and weekends and resenting the free time the rest of my family had. I have found a few things helpful for becoming more effective with my time.

As a homeschooling momma of 7, I’m familiar with the fear of ruining your children for life. I’ve even tossed around the idea of pushing my kids on the school bus and throwing in that towel!
