How do you explain to kids that they need homeschooling to be away from bad influences? They want to stay in school.

How do you explain to kids that they need homeschooling to be away from bad influences? They want to stay in school.

Well....: If your child wants to stay in school, then they may be better off there. If they were being bullied or were not enjoying the experience, i'm sure they would jump at the chance to stay home. As far as bad influences are concerned, early education about drugs, alcohol and sex are the parents responsibility anyway, so be sure to inform your child about these dangers. ...Read more

If you had to teach human sexuality to children or adolescents in homeschool, what are some things thing ok if religious?

Be realIstic: A religious ovum is fertilized just as easily as an atheist ovum. A religious body is just as susceptible to STDs as an atheist body. Ignorance caused tremendous suffering in earlier times. We're blessed with modern knowledge that gives us much more control over them. If your kids don't learn it from you, who will teach it to them properly? Knowledge is power. We owe it to them to give it to them. ...Read more

There are many resources available, so one does not have to create an educational program from scratch. Biggest issues usually have to do with socialization, which can be harder; but, arranging for social contacts in other settings helps with that. ...Read more

Can I homeschool my 5 year old daughter who has selective mutism?

Can I homeschool my 5 year old daughter who has selective mutism?

Why not?: I do not see any reason why that would be harmful. She will certainly talk. I am unaware of any advantage to a large classroom for a selectively mute person as they talk when they choose. She will benefit form therapy to help her overcome it with time, but homeschool might be the perfect setting for her. ...Read more

My daughter is sick and I homeschool her but would she be able to get homeschooled through the hospital ?  she has pots

My daughter is sick and I homeschool her but would she be able to get homeschooled through the hospital ?  she has pots

Words matter: The average hospital stay for kids runs 2-3 days, and schoolwork is rarely addressed as treatment proceeds. For those with long term stays, some larger facilities do co-op with local school districts to provide such services.You must ask what is available and authorize the service.Various privacy rules keep the hospital/doc from allowing anyone access to information on your kid. ...Read more
