How To Make Arrangements for Home Schooling in Burkburnett

Witnessing the drift toward home schooling, many are questioning how to get started home schooling. Truly, home-schooling, may will be the upsurge of the future with the planet as it’s classroom.

As soon as a kid arrives they are learning. When looked at from this angle, it is incredibly easy to start on education. As children begin to show a desire for education it’s time to start teaching them shapes, colors, the alphabet and numbers. Once a child is at school age, those who are educated in this method will already know how to read, write and give their adddress.

Once the child reaches school age, many states will need how the home-schooling parents file an teaching plan with the school district. Parents may go pick from many different ways to educate their children. From online groups to groups throughout the school district where the child would attend.

Let Them Be Bored This Summer

There’s no need for technology or entertainment to rule your kids’ summer. Instead, let them be bored and find their own adventures!

Carrying fresh towels out to the pool, I caught my youngest child in the middle of a precious make-believe moment. All eight years of him looked up, wide-eyed. Flexing outstretched, sinewy arms, he hollered, “Mama, look at my boat. It’s a real boat and it’s mine!”

I set the towels down on the picnic table, keeping my eyes on his thin lips, curled in a smile, every bit of him living out an inspired summertime adventure. It was all so stinkin’ beautiful! There he was, with his brilliant boy imagination, splashing around our pool at 9:56 in the morning on a perfect summer day!

My heart swelled with pride as I watched his body strain under the pressure of paddling. Then up came his “spear” and he slew the monstrous eel that swarmed ’round his boat. His face contorted and I knew it was all real.

Summer and Technology

A tear pricked, because this boy fought tooth and nail just a few short days before. “It’s not fair! It’s summer! All of my friends play video games and watch cartoons as much as they want!”

He invited me to fight him, but I refused. “Sorry son, this isn’t a consequence: you didn’t do anything wrong; but you and your brothers aren’t going to play video games and watch TV all day every day. It’s the decision your dad and I have made. You boys can do it every afternoon; after you’ve played yourself into a happy stupor and rested with a book for a while, then you can have some screen time. But, no, that’s not how our family does summer.”

That’s not how our family does summer.

He wanted to fight me then, but I refused to make it a fight. One of the main lessons I’ve learned in my career as “mom” is that I don’t have to fight my children. Though they try to argue with me, I don’t have to engage in the argument. Because I’m in charge, I have no need to fight.

And you’re in charge too, Mom.

I’m not suggesting a proud, unyielding, authoritarian sort of power, but a calm, collected, and kind sense of yourself as their mom.

“Son, I’m not going to fight you,” are words I often say. “God gave you to me, and I’m here to help you make the best choices this summer. One day, when you head to college, you’ll have to make most of your choices without me…until that time, I’m here to help.”

I’ve said it enough times now that they know. They know I’m not going to fight them. I’ve dropped the rope, so to speak, and no child can play a game of tug-of-war when their opponent has dropped their end of the rope.

I refused to fight my children over summertime boundaries or summertime boredom!

Summer and Creative Play

How I loved the forts of my youth and the friends who met me deep within their leafy rooms. Some friends were real, and others imaginary. I’d ride my pink bike with the white basket to Kerry’s house three blocks away. I don’t have one memory within either of our air-conditioned homes until we were 12 and started sneaking stealthily into her mother’s living room to watch her sordid soap operas. Life was lived outside in our youth, with change in our pockets in case we came across the jingling song of an ice-cream truck.

Then there was the “dump” down the street, where our local school discarded old desks, pieces of machinery, and the deflated red rubber balls I had played handball with over the course of the previous school year. My neighbor, Michael, and I would squeeze through the chain linked fence and gather what we could for our summertime inventions. We’d throw cardboard boxes over the fence before squeezing back through and carrying our loot home to his house or mine.

It was a successful day, a memorable day, the day we made our first cardboard vehicles. Using blue painter’s tape and silver duct tape, yellow masking tape and clear Scotch tape, we strapped boxes to our skateboards, decorated them with markers, and pushed one another down the middle of the street.

But the day I count even more a success, more memorable, was the day my boys pushed through the discomfort of their boredom and constructed their own cardboard fun.

When we let our children work through the discomfort of not being entertained, they have a shot at brilliance.

Don’t Give In

Dear Mom, knee-deep in summer, don’t give in! Let them be bored, for boredom breeds brilliance. You are a good and kind mom; stay calm and collected. You don’t need to engage in battles over screen time or morning movies, or respond to their whiny plea for a trip to Walmart for another toy. They don’t need toys today; they need your loving hand, opening the back door and giving them a gentle shove.

God did a good job when He made you their mom…find your authority there, and drop the rope. Go ahead and drop it…and let them be bored. I double-dog dare you!

If you tend to engage in the battle and find yourself fighting your kids each long mothering day, (winter, spring, summer, and fall) I encourage you to grab a copy of Triggers: Exchanging Parents’Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses. Sign up here for more conversations with Wendy Speake about dropping the rope and picking up grace!
