There are also more resources accessible to families, and there are even more arranged events for home schooled pupils, too. Have you considered attending local homeschooling events!?

You will find all sorts of social functions, some of them sporting events. You will find affairs arranged where home-scholled pupils group collectively, and there are affairs where said pupils and their families get along with the community. Because students are home schooled do not mean that they are always found in their house during school hours either.

There are excursions and also other scholastic happenings which pupils can enjoy. There is also the opportunity of being outside, maybe studying at the library or outdoors within the park. Home-schooled students may also meet up for classes and study sessions. There are lots of freedoms to home schooling, including the point that students can learn anyplace, not just behind the closed doors of your public school.

Mentors give the best coaching and they need to be certified. Parents are not required to be certified to home school their kids. It could be a problem with home schooling. You might find that there are good parts and bad parts. Having been an educator, I choose to hold things the way they are, but there are actually advantages to home-schooling.

It’s a bit gloomy how the schools are so messed up at this time with regards to security and the way that they are perceived. Everyone has fond memories of being in school. Someone I am aware of and regard wants to be a professor. I was previously a teacher as I mentioned. And I have known several countless teachers. Home schooling is an option, although the factors behind its enlarged approval are mostly based on public schools being under so much scrutiny.

Something should be done to reinstate the concept that parents might trust their children to public schools. We must do a more satisfactory job. There is a find a detach somewhere, and truthfully, it’s not even close to being nearly the schools themselves. It is a public problem, of course, if you may well ask me, a faith based issue, as it is everything.

Nonetheless, each home and family circumstances differs, and homeschooling is a really lovely option. Despite the fact that I am a backer for reinstating public schools to their previous glory, I am also an individual who knows home-schooling is great in the correct kind of situation. Everyhthing needs to be in position, plus all social facets of schooling and going to events in your community.

Ask Dr. Angie: Patience

Question:

How does one learn to be patient with your children as they struggle to learn?

—Bernice

Answer:

Bernice has asked the million-dollar question: how do we find patience when it comes to our children?

If you know me, then you know I have three boys, a husband and four dogs, so I have a long history of asking myself, “How can I be more patient?” I used to think that if they would “just do this” or “just do that,” then I could find more tolerance and patience. But the truth we will always come back to is that patience is about us: ourselves and how we view and react to any given situation.

Now, Bernice specifically wants to know how to find that lost virtue of patience with her child when he is struggling through the learning process. It is especially difficult with these kiddos when learning is so hard for them because they have a thinking style that allows them to be intelligent, out-of-the-box critical thinkers. At the same time, they are struggling in school and seemingly questioning everything that we suggest and all school figures of authority.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some tools to find patience with our children in any given scenario? That is what we are talking about here. And it is actually really simple. All this stuff is simple. We parents make it complicated.

So, hold on and hear me out about this.

The reason we get annoyed, frustrated, or impatient about anything is because we have an expectation that is not being met. And, odds are, we are taking our children’s behavior personally as an assault against us.

So we have to ask ourselves, “What is the real expectation that I have for my child when he is doing _____ (homework, reading, doing his chores, getting up in the morning)?”

If your expectation is that your child with dyslexia will enjoy his homework and sit for an hour straight without asking you any questions, then you are going to lose your patience when he gets up every five minutes or continually asks you questions.

If your expectation is that he should be reading better by now and he is not, then you might lose your patience.

When I was homeschooling my son with dyslexia, I would get so upset because he could read the word “the” one day and then the next day he would read it as “and.” I thought that he just wasn’t trying hard enough. This would end up with me yelling and him crying and feeling like a failure.

But when I knew better, I did better. My expectation changed.

Maya Angelou said, “When you know better, you do better.”

Once my expectation changed, he still continued to have difficulties reading, but I no longer reacted with anger and impatience.

So it wasn’t him. It was me, and how I was responding to him.

When we control our own responses, it is amazing how those around us begin to change.

The other thing that I had to realize is that his crying and anger were not about me, so I was able to stop taking his behavior personally. His actions were secondary to his own feelings, core beliefs, and fears. In other words, he was doing the best he could.

With our kids, we are lucky because our core emotion or feeling towards them is love. If we go back to that place of love and what we love about them, it becomes simple to say to yourself “How can I love my child right now in this situation?”, and patience will come more easily.

I was at a conference recently where a parent asked, “How do I not get irritated with my 4 year old that wants me to play with her all day when I have things to do, like the laundry?”

The speaker from stage was great. She said, “Your little girl just wants to be with you. Spend time with you.” As this mother listened, the speaker continued, “Don’t expect her not want to be with you. Take her with you to do the laundry. Let her help. Enjoy your time with her…this time with our children isn’t forever.”

So what do you do the next time you feel impatience bubbling up regarding your child?

First: check if your expectation for the situation is reasonable and if it is not, breathe and readjust.

Dr. Miguel Ruiz states in his amazingly-relevant book, The Four Agreements, “We judge others according to our image of perfection, and naturally they fall short of our expectations.”

Second: put yourself in their shoes: empathize, feel what they are feeling. That gives you understanding; remember, “When you know better, you do better.”

Third: choose to see the situation from a place of love. Ask yourself, “What does loving my child right now look like?”

Fourth: honor who your child came here to be…not who you want them to be.

Until next time, keep it simple.
