More and more parents are now looking to homeschooling as an alternative to the poor education found in our public schools. If you’re looking for homeschooling in Royse City, TX than Great Homeschool has something for you. Homeschooling happens to be popular, yet it is the choice of many families recently. There are many reasons why, one of them being the college shootings which transpire. Today more resources offered to families, and there are more scheduled events for home schooled scholars, too. Have you investigated attending local home schooling affairs!?

There are actually all kinds of social affairs, many of them sporting events. There are events organized where homeschooled students congregate collectively, and then there are events where these students along with their families get meet with the community. Because children are homeschooled doesn’t mean that she or he is always gonna be in their own home during school hours either.

There are field trips along with other scholastic encounters that students can also enjoy. Additionally there is the opportunity of getting outside, possibly studying in the library or outdoors at the park. Home Schooled pupils can also assemble for classes and study sessions. There are several freedoms to home-schooling, involving the reality that scholars can learn any place, not only behind the closed doors of the public school.

There are many elements of public schools that individuals are paying more attention to these days. Are they safe? Definitely, you can still find huge advantages to attending public school as things stand at the moment. This is especially true regarding the social elements of students interacting with their peers for many hours on a daily basis. Additionally, there is a uniform cyllabus and school environment expectations regarding conduct.

Instructors supply the best coaching and they must be certified. Parents are not required to be certified in order to home-school their children. That may be a downside to homeschooling. There are good and bad parts. Having been a teacher, I prefer to maintain things the way they are, but you can see advantages to homeschooling.

It’s just a little depressing the schools are so messed up at the moment when it comes to security and the way in which they can be perceived. Everybody has tender recollections of being in school. Someone I am familiar with and esteem wants to be a teacher. I had been a teacher as I explained. And I’ve been aware of many countless educators. Home schooling can be an option, but the reasons behind its enlarged approval are largely based on public schools being under so much scrutiny.

There needs to be something done to reinstate the idea that parents could entrust their kids to public schools. We must do a better job. You might find a detach anywhere, and honestly, it’s not near to being pretty much the schools themselves. It is a societal predicament, and when you ask me, a faith based issue, as it is everything.

Nevertheless, every house and family condition differs, and homeschooling is a very nice option. Though I’m a promoter for restoring public schools for their previous glory, I’m also someone that identifies home-schooling is fantastic in the right sort of situation. Everyhthing should be in place, including all social aspects of schooling and joining events in the area.

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.
