Why go to the Expo?

Home education is time-consuming. It must be all that lack of socialization that fills the day. In all seriousness, time is precious, so why do we plan and offer conferences that take more of your time? Because we believe homeschooling with excellence involves learning and growing as educators and families! Because we believe that homeschool families need encouragement and fun times in their journey! The challenges—and sacrifices—involved in choosing to home educate our children invite us into an exciting world. It is a world with possibilities we may never have considered. The Expo allows us as homeschool parents to be encouraged and energized. Excellent speakers and educational entertainment combine for a great family experience.

From Homeschooling 101 to the College Fair, there are workshops and activities for everyone. The KidsZone (ages 4-12) may just be the place that inspires some new fun learning techniques in your homeschool setting. The two-day Film Camp is geared to helping teens build a theological foundation for entertainment and practical film-making skills so they can impact this powerful industry. Incorporating fine art into studies, inspiring an entrepreneur or encouraging a homeschool dad is just a few of the great workshop possibilities. The Exhibitors Hall offers another wealth of information and inspiration. The quantity and quality of resources will prime the pump for planning next year’s adventure. The Expo will refresh you to finish this year and move into the next with enthusiasm.

Take time today to visit the Expo website and prayerfully consider whether this is just the boost you need! It will be time invested well.

Are You Training Your Child To Complain?

Do you find yourself second guessing the amount of work you assigned your child based on their moaning and groaning? You know your child’s capabilities and have given out the assignments. As time passes your student is taking a long time and starts appeals of, “It’s too much writing and my hand hurts! All my assignments are long today, can you shorten some? I’ll never get this done in time.”

There are times to reevaluate, but do not let your child regularly manipulate you into changing your mind about the day’s lesson plan. If it works once, they’ll try again and a bad habit of complaining has started.

Be encouraged, if this has already started as a pattern in your homeschool you have the power to turn it around. Stand firm for a few days and your children will come to know that you have a NO WHINING HOMESCHOOL ZONE!

What Is Kids Zone?
