Parenting

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

For over 100 years, American culture has had an ever-increasing infatuation with electronic media and entertainment.  A handful of thoughtful skeptics in the past contemplated the long-term effects on family, society, and individuals.  Now we are reaping the consequences as more and more studies confirm what some had rightly predicted. That is, our ability to be attentive is steadily eroding. We are becoming less attentive to our families, study, work, and most importantly, to God. What are the results and what will it take to regain the ground that has been lost?

Yvette Hampton talks with Phillip Telfer, homeschool dad, pastor, author, film producer, and director of Media Talk 101 about these issues. In this interview, Phillip doesn’t just address the problems with digital devices, he offers many solutions on how to overcome those problems and take back the hearts of your family members.

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of this discussion.

Overcoming Digital Distraction, Part 1 - Phillip Telfer on the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

SUMMER BREAK!

Phillip Telfer has ministered to youth and families for over 25 years, sharing at camps, retreats, schools, conferences, and churches around the country.  He is the director of the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 and author of the book Media Choices: Convictions or Compromise? and the young adult novel Why Save Alexander. He wrote, produced, and co-directed the award-winning documentary Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture, and founded the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild. Phillip loves Jesus, his family, and his local church. He’s finicky about coffee so he took up the hobby of home roasting and when he needs to unplug he can be found in his workshop crafting things from wood. He and his wife Mary have been happily married for thirty years and are blessed with four wonderful children, one fantastic son-in-law, and two precious grandchildren. Phillip and Mary are dedicated to homeschooling their three teens through high school.

Why Homeschool? Aby Rinella on the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast

 

Knowing your "Why" - Aby Rinella talks about why homeschooling matters

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

"Why do I homeschool? Because today my children will be at home with me, learning about the catastrophic events that happened in New York. About the evil that happens when we deviate from God's design. And about how we have a God that mourns because he loves his people. They will be home with me, praying for the preborn babies, rather than in a public school system that tells them they get to choose for themselves what is good and evil, rather than looking to God for truth." - Aby Rinella

SUMMER BREAK!

A great reset for homeschool families; a time to reflect on the last year and prepare for the next. A time for the kids to unwind and run free. But, as with anything, we know that there is always an opportunity to have the blessings robbed if we do not protect these special times.

But take heart, you can make this the best summer yet; a summer full of fun and memories, with learning and growth woven in. You can turn that boredom into opportunity all while getting the much-needed break you have been waiting for!*
