In this interview Israel and Yvette cover the following topics: 

Common Mistakes Christian Parents Make

Many well-intentioned parents make harmful mistakes as they relate to their children. These mistakes often contribute to bitterness in their children. Over time, they can result in children rejecting their parent and their values. Learn to avoid these pitfalls.

Influence vs. Control: How to Best Motivate Your Child

There is a careful tension that must be maintained between being your child’s authority figure and being their life coach. There is a necessary shift in approach that must take place as your children go through various stages of development. If this transition is not carefully managed, your parenting approach will likely backfire resulting in a lack of influence in your child’s life. Learn the proper balance in this important message.

The Power of Affirmation

When you are trying to inspire and motivate children, there are two forces that are often exerted: Positive and Negative Reinforcement. In this session, Israel explains the importance of Affirmation as a way to inspire and motivate your reluctant child. Drawing from practical and Biblical examples, this session will help you to keep those important relational connections as you are attempting to impart knowledge.

How to Keep Your Child in the Faith

Studies show that 70% of churched youth abandon the Christian faith sometime before high school graduation. While there are no guarantees in parenting, there are steps parents can take that have been proven through various studies to statistically improve the chances of your child embracing and remaining in the faith. Learn what actionable steps you can take to help strengthen your child against unbelief.

“The thing is—it’s not even about the academics. Homeschooling is important, academics are important, because that’s what points our children towards Christ. But parenting is not about academics. It’s about discipling and training the hearts of our children." - Yvette Hampton

Heidi St. John - You Can Homeschool!

In late June and early July we were in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center. During our time there Yvette had a chance to record an episode of the Heidi St. John Podcast with Heidi. 

Heidi St. John and Yvette Hampton answer viewers questions about homeschooling.

Following the show, Yvette and Heidi went live on Facebook to answer viewer questions about homeschooling. This episode of the podcast and the following Q&A was such an encouragement to listeners we decided to rebroadcast it and make the Q&A video available to our subscribers and Backstage Pass members.

We have got to educate people, as to what freedom and liberty are about, what the constitution is all about, parental rights, and who our kids belong to. That’s very elementary. Socialism and Marxism would have us believe our kids belong to the government.” – Zan Tyler

 

Zan Tyler - Homeschool Podcast Interview

While we were at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center, in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming interviews for Schoolhouse Rocked, homeschool pioneer, Zan Tyler stopped by for a surprise visit. Zan was instrumental in the fight to make homeschooling legal in South Carolina, in the early 1980s. She was in Oregon to speak at the Oregon Christian Home Education Association Network (OCEANetwork) homeschool conference, in Albany, Oregon and wanted to visit Heidi St. John and get a tour of the homeschool resource center. Because her story of the legal battles and persecution that she endured to pave the way for homeschooling families in her state provided such important historical perspective and cautionary advice, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to interview her for the movie and for the podcast.

Following her dramatic battle for the right to homeschool her children, Zan went on to teach them through graduation and all three of them attended college on a variety of scholarships. Gaining resolve during her battle, she went on to fight for other homeschooling families in South Carolina and across the United States, founding the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools in 1990, Speaking at homeschool conventions around the world, and writing several books, including Seven Tools for Cultivating Your Child’s Potential and the forward for Heidi St. John's Busy Homeschool Mom's Guide to Daylight: Managing Your Days Through the Homeschool Years. She has also worked to develop Bible-bases homeschool resources as the director of Apologia Press. Here is her story.

The song, "Christmas Time is Here" is from Christmas, by Tyler Michael Smith. Thanks, Tyler, for letting us use the song and for giving us great music to enjoy this Christmas season. Our family has loved this album.
