Yvette Hampton, producer and host of the upcoming documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution, brings you encouragement and resources from home education experts and REAL families just like yours, to help you train your children well.

Episodes

Join Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella for an encouraging conversation with Connie Albers, veteran homeschool mom and author of Parenting beyond the Rules. Connie answers several questions such as “If you could talk to your younger self, what would you say? What was the most important decision you made regarding parenting or homeschooling? How did you homeschool multiple kids through graduation without being an expert in every subject? How important is curriculum choice? You managed your home and schedule with multiple kids at different ages? How did you foster a healthy marriage through your years of raising kids and homeschooling?”

Stephanie Lambert was homeschooled before home schooling was officially legal in Texas. Her parents had a vision for instilling strong values and providing a quality education to their four children. This included joining in the fight to make families free to home educate. Stephanie’s childhood is filled with memories as a THSC volunteer in her family’s home. Her time on staff with THSC then began with event planning, touching thousands of lives each year. She went on to serve as THSC’s Director of Events and Director of Development and is now the Executive Director of the organization. Stephanie has a passion for empowering and encouraging parents to raise their children to know Christ and to be the next generation of leaders our country needs.

It’s 2020 and EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED! For the first time, many have been faced with one of the greatest decisions of their parenting lives. How will they educate their children? Will they continue to send them to school during this time of  COVID-19 restrictions, masks, and social distancing? Will they sit them in front of a computer screen for hours of ZOOM virtual classes? Or will they withdraw them completely and HOMESCHOOL and test the waters of real, parent-directed education at home.

On a daily basis, parents are considering homeschooling for the first time ever and asking the question, “But How?” That’s what Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella are answering this week on The Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast.

This is the final part of a three part conversation, so if you missed Monday's and Wednesday's episodes you will want to go back and listen to them first.

How do I homeschool - 10 Steps to Homeschooling with Excellence

Watch this important full conversation on the Schoolhouse Rocked YouTube Channel.

Here are 10 very specific steps to get you started on the right path, or encourage you along the way if you’re already traveling the homeschool road.

Psalm 1:1-2: “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night.”

Proverbs 1:8: “Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”

1) PRAY. Do that first. Surrender your homeschool to the Lord. Seek Him in all you do.

2) KNOW YOUR WHY. So that when it gets hard, and it will, you can go back and be reminded.

3) KNOW YOUR STATE LAWS – Visit SchoolhouseRocked.com/homeschooling-in-your-state/  to find the homeschooling laws in your state and connect with your state homeschool organization.

4) JOIN HSLDA

5) DE-SCHOOL – Get rid of the “school” mentality - Do not compare, do not try to recreate someone else’s homeschool or traditional school in your home. Answer the call the Lord has given YOUR family. Give time for a family reset.

6) FIND A LOCAL COMMUNITY

7) UNDERSTAND STYLE - your teaching style and your children's learning styles.

8) CHOOSE CURRICULUM – Ask friends or family for recommendations

9) ATTEND A HOMESCHOOL CONFERENCE  – in person, if possible. Learn about your state conference by becoming a member of your state homeschool organization.

10) START WITH THE END IN MIND, and at the same time, acknowledge that change is inevitable. Be flexible.

“The homeschooling journey doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it shouldn’t be. In a world that wants to tell you “how-to” homeschool better, come and discover that simplifying, letting God lead, and focusing on your family is far greater than any new “method” or "system.”

From the book: “Karen shares from her fifteen years of experience as a homeschooling mom. She will help you stay focused on the true goals for your family. Homeschooling is about so much more than just academics. You are building a family, and not just a transcript. It isn’t about a piece of paper that defines your children, but the foundation upon which they stand, that defines them. Join Karen as she takes you on the journey from just starting out in kindergarten, all the way until dropping her first born at college. It was a spiritual journey, a faith-building journey, and a family-building journey. And in the end, keeping it simple and focusing on God and family, were the most beautiful parts of all. Wherever you are in your homeschooling journey, you will be encouraged to build your family on the Lord’s foundation.”

From the book: “Karen shares from her fifteen years of experience as a homeschooling mom. She will help you stay focused on the true goals for your family. Homeschooling is about so much more than just academics. You are building a family, and not just a transcript. It isn’t about a piece of paper that defines your children, but the foundation upon which they stand, that defines them. Join Karen as she takes you on the journey from just starting out in kindergarten, all the way until dropping her first born at college. It was a spiritual journey, a faith-building journey, and a family-building journey. And in the end, keeping it simple and focusing on God and family, were the most beautiful parts of all. Wherever you are in your homeschooling journey, you will be encouraged to build your family on the Lord’s foundation.”

“The homeschooling journey doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it shouldn’t be. In a world that wants to tell you “how-to” homeschool better, come and discover that simplifying, letting God lead, and focusing on your family is far greater than any new “method” or "system.”

Yvette Hampton talks with return guest Karen DeBeus about her new book, The Simple Homeschool Journey: Building a Family, Not Just a Transcript.

This is a three-part interview, so make sure you come back Wednesday and Thursday to hear the rest.
