5 EASY Steps to start homeschooling - Interview with Stephanie Lambert of THSC

Watch Yvette's full interview with Stephanie Lambert on the Schoolhouse Rocked YouTube Channel.

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. She lives in Lubbock and serves in her church, reads, decorates, snowboards and travels in her free time.

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.

"A lot of times parents are fearful because they think "I'm not trained," or "I don't have any special background.", but they are the expert when it comes to their child, so we’re arming them with some good resources. If you have a child with dyslexia, then we're going to point you to resources and books and services for dyslexia or autism because knowledge is power and we battle fear by prayer and trusting in God..." - Faith Berens

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.
