Teach your Internet homeschool highschool children the Power of Intention – part 1

“Love does not obey our expectations, it obeys our intentions.”
Lloyd Strom

Teaching our homeschool highschool children the power of intention, to focus their thoughts on their future and the positive aspects, goals, decision or paths of learning to create their own future is a parents responsibility that goes beyond measure. To briefly begin this article let’s look at a young king, one of a few young kings and queens history has shown us from cultures from around the world as proof it can be done and perhaps it has been forgotten or set aside.

2 Kings 22:1

Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.

In the above example the young king Josiah, even though he was only eight years old, he was still expected to rule a nation of people and they in turn expected him to act like a king. His advisers taught him the power of intention, the power of love to prepare him to guide his people the right way and not like a tyrant. Josiah did rule his people the right way for thirty years and was a legendary and beloved king known around the world.

Throughout history we have had more than one hundred examples of young rulers using the power of intention, the power of love to influence to others. In the semi-autobiographical movie ‘The King and I’ the king of Siam passed his kingdom to his young son to his young son, who was taught to lead his people with the power of intention.

Pharaoh Tutankhamen a legendary young king of Egypt on the same level as pharaoh Queen Cleopatra were also young rulers whose powers of intention affected millions of people over decades.

By sowing small seeds of confidence in our highschool homeschool children at home, confidence in their intentions, confidence in a few conscious directions, a few conscious steps of faith, and acceptance of what they are doing and the direction they are going will carry them through a very fulfilling life.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

As our children’s teacher’s by making these intentions a daily habit is like watering the seeds we are sowing, planting a garden of confidence to grow in their minds, make a positive change on their futures – instead of watching their futures make changes on them.

“Just what is meant by ‘your word?’ It means your conscious intention, your conscious direction, your conscious faith and acceptance that, because of what you are doing, the Power of Spirit will flow through your word in the direction you give It.”
Ernest Holmes


Goal Setting for Internet Homeschoolers part 2

In part 1, we realized that if any Internet high-school homechooled students imagined that it is difficult to change anything or achieve anything then they will not be able to overcome that hurdle no matter what size it is, then what we need to learn is how to eat an elephant.

Eat an elephant? Yes! Eat an elephant…piece by piece, like army ants – until it is devoured…in a matter of hours – which means, it can be done.
Proverbs 6:8
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

So mothers/teachers/fathers encourage our Internet high-school homeschooled students to have faith, doubt not that the elephant can be eaten like the ants have been doing for centuries and dinner will be served on each and every hurdle they face or come across, each and every time… It was the exact same idea expressed in Matthew in Matthew 21:21 in part 1 of Goal Setting for Internet Homeschoolers.

Women workshops – what you want to see what’s inside and how it works

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Self-esteem is a core identity issue, essential to personal validation and our ability to experience joy.

Once achieved, it comes from the inside out. But it is assaulted or stunted from the outside in. A homeschooling mom with low self-esteem does not feel good about herself because she has absorbed negative messages about women from the culture and/or relationships.

The reign of youth, beauty and thinness in our society dooms every woman to eventual failure. Women’s magazines, starting with the teenage market, program them to focus all their efforts on their appearance.

Many girls learn, by age 12, to drop formerly enjoyable activities in favor of the beauty treadmill leading to nowhere. They become fanatical about diets. They munch, like rabbits, on leaves without salad dressing, jog in ice storms, and swear they love it! Ads abound for cosmetic surgery, enticing us to “repair” our aging bodies, as if the natural process of aging were an accident or a disease. Yet with all this effort, they still never feel like they are good enough.

In a women’s workshop a set of activities is designed to promote learning, discussion and feedback about a topic or event, you can achieve this with the traditional get together workshop, but online, all you need to do is logon to find other homeschooling mom’s views and suggestions about their life changing ways into a better self.

Get better everyday

Plan to do one thing that will help you improve physically, intellectually, emotionally, even spiritually. Making just one change for the better as a homeschooling mom will boost your attitude from the inside out. You can actually chose what you want to change in this category first. Things you do most are the ones you need to focus on. A simple task won’t take that long.

Little things add up

It’s amazing, really. The seemingly meaningless things you as a homeschooling mom do for yourself may not have immediate results, but after just a short period of time they’ll have you looking and feeling better. So add those bubbles to your bath, make sure you eat your vegetables, get enough sleep, think of doing something nice when you have nothing to do, and the results will be worth it.

Mirrors don’t lie

Catty acquaintances can. Well-meaning friends might out of kindness or fear of hurting the friendship, but if you’ve got spinach in your teeth, your mirror will point it out. These things can be bothersome when you thought you were in your best but end up like this, so keep in mind about how to look your best every time and enjoy its benefits. Remember, your homeschooling students are looking at your daily appearance – no pressure, right?

Just go

If you just can’t get rid of that cowlick in your hair, that pimple on your nose, or those extra three pounds from yesterday’s buffet, just throw some gel in you hair, conceal that pimple the best you can, and wear something that’s not too clingy.


To get that attitude going the right way, you need to appreciate your face and body for what it is. It may be unrealistic to tell you to love it, but you certainly shouldn’t hate it. You definitely need to value what life has thrown you. That’s easier said than done in this society of model adulation and unrealistic standards.

If you take a look at any success story and grasp the one element of similarity between them, you’ll notice that virtually every self-made, successful person has this one super-important object of success in their mind- a burning desire to succeed. What counts is your frame of mind. Age, location, ethnic origin, gender, or any other individuality have absolutely no part in your attitude to become what you desire.

The Powers of a Positive Attitude in Homeschoolers

Get weird for 1 minute…
I am going to ask mompreneurs to do something very weird right now, for you and your homeschoolers. First of all, I want everyone to listen to your thoughts. Now tell me, what thoughts fill your heads? Would anyone label them as positive, or negative?

Now let’s say you and your children are walking down the street with these thoughts. Do you think anyone who would meet you and your homeschoolers would be able to tell you what’s on your mind?

The answer to number one is up to you. But, the answer for number two can be pretty generic. Although people will not be able to tell you exactly what you or your homeschoolers think, they will more or less have an idea of how you are feeling.

Party pooper…it’s a frame of mind.
Here’s another question. When you and your homeschoolers enter a party filled with friends, do they all fall silent as if something terrible had happened? Or does everybody there perk up as if waiting for something exciting to happen?

You know what? The answer to all these depends on your frame of mind.

Thoughts are very powerful. They affect your general attitude. The attitude you carry reflects on your appearance, too – unless, of course, you have a family of great actors.

And it doesn’t end there. Your homeschooler’s attitude can also affect people around you.

The type of attitude your homeschoolers carry depends on each of you. It can be either positive or negative.

Thoughts have power…
Positive thoughts have a filling effect. They are admittedly invigorating. Plus, the people around the person carrying positive thoughts are usually energized by this type of attitude.

Negative thoughts on the other hand have a sapping effect on other people. Aside from making you look gloomy and sad, negative thoughts can turn a festive gathering into a funeral wake.

A positive attitude attracts people, while a negative attitude repels them. People tend to shy away from those who carry a negative attitude.

We can also define attitude as the way of looking at the world. If you or your homeschoolers choose to focus on the negative things in the world, more or less you have a negative attitude brewing up. However, if you and your homeschoolers choose to focus on the positive things, everyone is more likely to carry a positive attitude.

A positive attitude has positive gains…
Your family has much to gain from a very positive attitude. For one, studies have shown that a positive attitude promotes better health. Those with this kind of attitude also have more friends. Projecting a positive attitude also helps one to handle stress and problems better than those who have a negative attitude.

A positive attitude begins with a healthy self-image. If you and your homeschoolers will love the way your family is and are satisfied, confident, and self-assured, everyone will also make others who are around feel the same way.

A negative attitude, on the other hand, has, of course, an opposite effect. So, carrying a negative attitude has a twofold drawback. You feel bad about yourself, and you make others feel the same way.

Fostering a positive attitude…
If you want your homeschooler’s to have a positive attitude, you have to foster healthy thoughts. This is probably very hard to do nowadays since, all around us, the media feeds us nothing but negative thoughts. A study shows that for every 14 things a parent says to his or her child, only one is positive. This is truly a saddening thought.

If you want a healthier outlook in life, you need to think happy thoughts, and you have to hear positive things as well. So, what can you do? Well, for starters, you could see a funny movie, you could play with your homeschoolers , spend some time telling jokes with friends. All these activities fill you with positive stimuli, which in turn promotes positive attitude.

Although it is impossible to keep ourselves from the negative things around us, you can still carry a positive attitude by focusing on the good things, the positive things in life.

And this positive attitude your family now fosters can be of benefit to other people. Sometimes when other people feel down, the thing people mostly do is try to give them advice. But sometimes, all they need is somebody to sit by them, and listen to them. If you have a positive attitude you may be able to cheer them up without even having to say anything.

Choosing the right attitude…
If positive attitude is really great, why do people choose to adopt a negative attitude instead? One who carries a negative attitude may be actually sending a signal for attention. Before you get me wrong, feeling sad, angry, or gloomy is not wrong itself. But dwelling on these thoughts for far too long is not healthy either. There is a time to mourn.

As always, if you are beset by troubles, even in anybody’s darkest hour, focus on the good things in life, there will always be hope. Problems become something you can overcome.

You do not have much to lose by adopting a healthy, positive attitude. Studies show that such an attitude actually retards aging, makes you healthier, helps you develop a better stress coping mechanism, and has a very positive effect on all the people you meet every day. So, what’s not to like about a positive attitude? Adopt one today.

Where the Teacher is Mom for Internet Homeschoolers

There is an army of teachers in this country and around the world that get no pay, do not show up at a classroom and get no recognition for the work they do. But they are doing the job of teaching young minds and getting them through a year of academic work. These are the heroes of computer based homeschool teachers who are quietly doing the job of educating the next generation. And we have learned from studies into internet homeschooling, they are doing a pretty good job because computer based homeschooled students often rank high in college preparation exams.

If you are considering becoming a teacher in the unlimited scope of internet homeschooling your own children, the task is not as intimidating as it seems. And the potential benefits to your children are great. Public schools are notorious for taking bright young minds and snuffing out that fire for learning that they were born with.

The reason this happens is simple. Public schools are mandated to teach a very large body of kids so because of the volume of kids they must pass through each grade, the emphasis much be on discipline and order and the priority for high quality academics has to slide so that every child can get through. A lot of adults can verify this viewpoint and the evidence is obvious that improvements in the near future are slim.

That is why the focused and specialized environment of a homeschoolers situation is perfect for a bright mind such as your child has because you can customize your curriculum to fit your child and to accelerate as fast as they show an aptitude to go. You don’t have to put a big emphasis on being in their seat when the bell rings and being in school uniform down to their underwear.

There are no bells in an homeschoolers environment and they can come to school in their underwear if they want to …(not recommended). As long as they learn, that is the emphasis in a home school environment.

When you set out to becoming a internet homeschool teacher, you have a huge amount of flexibility in how you structure the learning environment. If you have a room you can set aside as the “classroom”, that is a nice set up – because you and your child know that when you go into that room, learning will happen here. But because the goal in that room is to complete one step along the way to finishing a curriculum, your young student knows that class will be over when they achieve their goals, not when the bell rings and that encourages productivity and focus.

It is also a myth that internet homeschooling will become expensive. In fact, you can virtually set up a perfectly valid year long curriculum for very little cost with resources on the internet. By logging into the public school’s system, you can find the curriculum for the grade your child is in school and what must be learned to finish that grade. In many cases, local public schools and many private schools have programs to help you get started so that your child follows a similar educational path that is going on down the street in the public schools. This is an advantage to you and the school because should you decide to send your child back to public school the next year, they are not out of step with the program.

Materials can often be had for very little expense as well. Many times a textbook that is being used for a particular subject will come out with a new edition. When that happens, you can pick up copies of the previous edition, now out of date to the public schools, for very little cost and often for free. The topics in the text book are just as valid in the previous edition so you can conduct full year of classes using that textbook and not face any serious cost investment at all. The Internet has vast free resources for homeschoolers that can be used parallel to what is taught in the public schools.

By looking for ways to take advantage of public facilities like the computers at the public library and of programs offered by churches, public schools and other institutions or online resources to help home school teachers like you be successful, you can set up a program at home that will help your child succeed as a student in this educational setting. It will be an adventure for you. And you will see a new appreciation come in to your child’s eyes when he or she suddenly realizes that mom is still mom but she is also an outstanding teacher as well.

Free Time Management Tips for Mompreneurs

Mompreneurs have always valued the essence of time. However, only a few people have mastered the skill of properly allocating their time for their work. We see a lot of books in book shops claiming they have the secret to proper time management. But do we really have to pay just to understand the secret of proper time management?

You really don’t have to buy these books to understand the secret of Proper Time Management. All a mompreneur needs is common sense and discipline. However, there are more reliable ways to achieve your goal. Here are a few tips to help mompreneurs manage their time.

Before you go and start making a list of things you need to do, a mompreneur has to realize that the list will never work if she won’t back it up with discipline. When talking about discipline here, it means you have to know your own priorities as a mompreneur very well, to guide you in abiding with the rules that you have set for yourself.

1. List a set of things to do for the day – This is the traditional way to proper time management. Make a list of things you as a mompreneur have to do for the day to keep you informed on what to do for the day. The list will help you to avoid distractions if any should arise during the day.

It is recommended to create a flexible “to do list”; having a flexible list allows you to fit unexpected events and occasions (only important ones) without destroying the whole list.

2. Change Bad Time Management Habits – It usually helps for starters to change Bad Time Management Habits. If you reflect on your everyday activities, you’d probably realize that you spend a lot of time watching too much TV or other forms of leisure. It is okay to spend time on leisure, but never when it exceeds the alloted time for it. Changing these habits would increase your time to do more meaningful activities.

3. Set some things to do for the day as top priority. – The idea of setting hierarchies among a mompreneur’s list of priorities is that those on top of the list are what you need to attend to first. It also helps you to finish on time when you use it in conjunction with your “to-do” list and daily timetable.

4. Learn how to say “NO” – When offered to do something, most people have trouble refusing. Hence, they are confronted with more tasks than they can manage. This is more important when it comes to tasks that are less important, such as watching a movie or going to a football game. You have to remember that once you have completed your pending tasks, you will have time to enjoy yourself.

If you’re planning to go out, you have to plan this a few days ahead. Therefore, you can finish your task ahead as well to save enough time for these long breaks.

5. Dividing your workload – This is specially helpful when working with other people as a team. You don’t have to do everything yourself. When dividing a mompreneur’s workload, people tend to finish faster because they can focus on doing a specific task.

6. Keeping your workplace clean and organized – When a mompreneur’s workplace is a mess, it is usually hard to look for things underneath the pile. Sometimes it takes hours for you to look for a lost paper on a cluttered pile. Therefore keeping things organized improves your over-all efficiency.

7. Setting Goals for yourself – Having practical and achievable goals for yourself is an important step in proper time management. Setting goals keeps mompreneur’s motivated to do jobs well. Remember that you need efficiency to get things done the right way.

Financing Internet Homeschooling…

When people talk about teaching their children from home in the absence of any definite or structured curriculum, it is perhaps natural to think that internet homeschooling is cheap. But this is far from the truth. Although internet homeschooling does not stick to any particular text, this is perhaps more of a bane than a boon, when it comes to finance.

When you need to make sure that your children receives state-of-the-art education so that they can compete with regular school goers, expenses will naturally mount. The actual cost of educating a child at home is surprisingly high. Up-to-date textbooks, course materials, a library, computing equipment, lighting, specially designed furniture all cost money. In this case, the cost may be slightly lesser when it comes to Internet homeschooling the second child. Add to this any additional tuition cost for tutors who come to teach subjects that cannot be handled by parents, like higher-level math or science. The total cost can be a bit mind boggling.

If you take another important factor into consideration, internet homeschooling costs may effectively triple. The need for having one of the parents tied to the house and fully dedicated to providing the foundation for a good internet homeschooling education deprives the family of a second earning member. The average internet homeschooling teacher is usually a lady with a college degree. This means that she can easily bring home a pay of $35,000 or more. It is also interesting to note that most families that have more than 2 children do not opt for internet homeschooling at all.

But, there are those who have been successful in carrying out internet homeschooling at low rates. This is dependent on the size of the family, the support group, the type of materials used and the availability of the material. When successive children can reuse the materials, cost goes down. Much of the course material can be purchased from vendors of internet homeschooling materials or from other internet homeschooling families whose children have graduated. A membership in a public library, theater, concerts, ballets and other cultural events also help in cutting costs. Sometimes, it is even possible
to barter expertise. For instance, the mother of an 8-year old gives dancing classes, and her daughter receives drawing classes for free. Support groups allow you to divide the cost of field trips, science projects and fairs.

Whatever the cost, advocates of internet homeschooling say that the benefits far outweigh these considerations. When you are able to decide what knowledge your child receives and when he or she should be taught and to what extent, it gives you a lot of freedom and a lot of power. Both the children as well as the parents benefit from this mutually enriching experience.

Internet Homeschooler’s Peer Tutoring, Anyone?

They can because they think they can… Virgil

Okay, we have heard about tutoring centers, one-on-one tutoring and online tutoring, but students can also be tutors. Homeschooler’s peer tutoring is about training students to assist younger students or students of the same age in homeschooling academic lessons.

There are studies conducted that showed that homeschoolers peer tutoring can improve academic learning and understanding among homeschooling students compared with homeschooling teacher instruction. It showed its benefits whether it is in small groups or part of the class. Homeschooling peer tutoring can be used in different subject areas and showed significant results in homeschooling mathematics, reading, spelling, comprehension and writing.

The reason why homeschooling peer tutoring can be successful is that homeschooling students feel more comfortable with each other. They interact with each other more openly and also help in improving self-confidence and self-efficacy. Aside from this, homeschooling peer tutoring also allows both parties, the tutors and the students, to widen their homeschooling academic knowledge. They would be able to support and promote homeschooling development for both parties.

In homeschooling peer tutoring, homeschooling tutors would be able to earn a salary (mompreneurs, I got your attention and homeschooling students attention at once…) and at the same time provide assistance to their homeschooling friends. Homeschooling tutors would also be able to have a deeper understanding of the homeschooling subjects and topics they would be teaching.

In one-on-one homeschooling peer tutoring, both parties would be meeting at least once a week, so that they would be able to fit homeschool tutoring to their class schedules. Homeschools that would have homeschooling peer tutoring programs would usually have the sessions outside the classroom but still inside a homeschooling environment, like a library.

Another kind of homeschooling peer tutoring is the class-wide. Since there are a lot of students inside a homeschooling classroom, homeschooling teachers may find it difficult to focus and help each homeschooling student. The class-wide program pairs every homeschooling student with each other. They would be given lessons and one homeschooling student is asked to tutor the other homeschooling student while the other one will answer the questions about the homeschooling topic.

The reason why class-wide homeschooling peer tutoring works is that homeschooling students are more comfortable asking questions to a classmate than to a homeschooling teacher. Most homeschooling students would fear asking questions because they are afraid of getting embarrassed. Homeschooling peer tutoring would also allow homeschooling students to be resolved of their confusion immediately, since they could ask their homeschooling partner right away.

If you think that homeschooling peer tutoring would work for you homeschooling child, how would you be able to ask or look for one? The place to go is your favorite homeschooling resource and ask if they have homeschooling peer tutoring programs.

Homeschooling parents should make their homeschooling children attending homeschooling peer tutoring be aware that it is important to attend sessions and avoid being late. Aside from that, it is also important that homeschooling students would be attending their regular classes. Homeschooling tutoring sessions are not intended to be substitute for missed classes. It’s a refresher and troubleshooting homeschool class. Meaning, things that you are unable to understand in regular homeschool classes are made clear in homeschoolers tutoring sessions.

If your child wants to be a homeschooling peer tutor, then all your homeschoolers child has to do is inquire about it at your favorite homeschooling resources site. Most of the times, homeschooling students who would like to be a homeschooling peer tutor needs to attend homeschooling peer to peer tutoring training sessions.

Homeschooling peer tutors would also have to learn giving positive feedback. It is encouraged that homeschooling tutors praise their charges especially if they are making progress or correct answers. If the homeschooling tutee is experiencing problems understanding, then provide time for the homeschooling tutee to practice and at the same time correct the mistakes without sounding patronizing.

But homeschooling peer tutoring is not always picture-perfect. There are times when homeschooling tutor and tutee cannot work well together or sometimes techniques and style of homeschool teaching learned in homeschool training is not effective for everybody. Techniques for homeschool teaching effectively would be developed during the sessions. What needs to be remembered is that homeschooling peer tutoring cannot replace regular homeschooling instruction, but this can be a great form of supplemental homeschooling education.

Proverbs 22:6 (King James Version)

6. Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Secrets of a Positive Attitude to Instill in Homeschoolers

Greetings homeschooling self help readers,

Are you or your homeschoolers constantly bombarded by thoughts of negativity? Plagued by feelings of insecurity? Do you or any of your homeschoolers see everything in a negative manner? The reason for this lies deep within our hearts. We are what we mentally and spiritually eat.

If a person eats candy on a daily basis, odds are their body will be affected in some way. They may have liver issues, develop diabetes or incur some other type of health problem directly related to the amount of candy they have consumed. In the same way, a person who constantly feeds themselves negative thoughts will simply turn into a negative person.

This is the time to get you and your homeschoolers to go on a diet. A diet of positive attitude food. We have to literally stop feeding our minds negative things. Ask yourself is this thought negative or positive? What do negative thoughts in a homeschooler’s environment look like? Well, they start with can’t rather than can, no as opposed to yes, won’t instead of will. The Bible which is the greatest self help book ever written, speaks about taking every thought captive. The problem in our society has become that our thoughts have taken us captive. We have begun to let our thoughts control us.

A great way to know what we are negative about is to ask those people who are closest to us, which on a different perspective would be a homeschoolers parents. You can ask your spouse or another person in your life who really knows you how they would rate your attitude on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 being super positive and 1 super negative. Ask this person to be totally honest with you, for your homeschoolers take time finish this part with them. Everyone will benefit from the honesty even if it causes pain. Ask this person what it is that you specifically say that they perceive as negative, and address for your homeschoolers what they often say that’s negative. Write down the negative sayings and look at the actual words. Now is the time for everyone to be honest with themselves. These words are a reflection of what is inside ourselves. They are who we are. The great thing is that anyone can change. It is as simple as making a choice to do so.

Decisions must be made to replace the thoughts of negativity with thoughts of positivity. Decide what words will be changed to replace the negative words on the paper. Once this has been done, make an effort to insert these new positive thoughts in everyone’s mind. Everyone will begin to notice a positive change taking place in their lives. Your family, friends and co-workers will all notice it as well. They may not know what it is that is different about you, but they will know that you are not the same person that you were.

The items which are causing negativity in our lives could very well be the news, movies, or constantly replaying a tragedy in our minds and the list could go on. These things should be eliminated in our new mental health regimen to be a success. The news can be very negative and does not help someone who is trying to rid their mind of such thoughts. When we are feeding ourselves thoughts of death from a war or gunshot or car accident visually the outcome will be negative. I do believe there is a time to grieve over the death of a loved one. However, if a person constantly replays this negative event in their minds it can lead to depression. The person who has passed away is not coming back and we must close that chapter in our lives and move on to the next chapter. This is a difficult task which can only be done by making a decision to proceed with our own life, no matter how hard this may be.

Anyone in a homeschoolers environment can do it. Anyone can and will have a positive attitude, if we simply take the steps outlined above. We do not have to be what we were in the past. Anyone can be different in the future. The choice is always yours. I know you will make a positive one.

Always hoping everyone a continued positive attitude success…

Preparing High school Homeschoolers to be a Real Estate Specialist

High school homeschoolers have a fantastic future ahead of them and with a gentle hand homeschooling moms can guide them in the direction that their hearts lead them. A gentle hand can use some of the articles I have published for homeschoolers to let their high school homeschoolers hearts dream a dream that can come true: Homeschooling Frederick Douglass, Homeschooling Creative Writers, Homeschooling Astronomers and a few more.

This particular article will briefly address the globetrotter in your homeschooler’s family, we all have one – always looking at maps of the world, Geography channel may also give them away and then there’s National Geographic.

If your homeschooling globetrotter is also interested in where people live in different neighborhoods, cities, parts of the country or the world, then this particular homeschooler has the potential of becoming a real estate specialist!

Look for more signs in your potential real estate specialist, like easily able to make new friends – great networking skill, keeping in contact with old friends – essential skill for following up with clients, a sponge in absorbing new knowledge – critical to keeping up-to-date in real estate and many other good signs.

Try increasing your potential real estate specialist’s vocabulary with real estate terms, see if their interested. Make note if they see for sale signs and repeatedly ask why, there are tons of other ways to notice a focused interest in real estate and getting them prepared early will make your homeschooling entrepreneurs a blazing success!

The Inside is What Counts in Homeschoolers and Homeschooling Parents

Greetings homeschooling self-help readers,

This article will deal with what is on the inside of us as homeschooling parents and highschool homeschoolers.

Who we are on the inside, seems to show up on the outside no matter how hard we try to hide it. You have no doubt heard of people wearing their hearts on their sleeves and this is because what is in our hearts are some deep emotions. You can be the best actor/actress in the world but if you are hurting inside you are in bad emotional shape. You can mask your pain with a smile or a laugh but that pain is still there. You can not make that pain disappear with alcohol or drugs it simply returns when the narcotic is out of the system, and ensuring our young homeschoolers are aware of this knowledge is an effective weapon for drug or alcohol prevention.

Medication will also need to be constantly taken if one is on anti-depressants. Why? Because the heart itself, what is on the inside of every single person on this planet is never dealt with.

God speaks of people who honor Him with their lips but their hearts are far from Him. God knows what is inside of all of us. The choice can be to run from who we are. To pour ourselves into various addictions to get away from who we are. We must however deal with who we really are if we are to move past any pain in our lives.

Before my darling aunt passed away, she uttered the words it is time to move on… Those words were very hard to hear but they still ring true today as I am reminded of them when I reflect back on my last days with her. I could have chosen to stay in the emotional state of numbness that I was in during her last days on earth or proceed to keep all the great memories of my aunt in my heart and enyoy the rest of the time that God has given me on the earth. The choice was mine. It was a difficult one but one that I believe that all of us must make when it comes to dealing with who we are. If I chose to stay in a state of numbness and deal with it by working too much or withdrawl I would be too busy focusing on myself. I would miss out on spending time with my amazing wife and children and I would never be able to get that time back.

Take a look at who you are inside, emphasize this to your homeschoolers. Anyone can talk about the pain with someone they can trust and move on. Anyone can do it. Everyone must do it if they are to be the very best that you can be. Choose not to live in the past because you will miss the very future that God has planned for you.

Much continued positive attitude success…and always remember to digg deeper.

Freedom On Juneteenth – What We Have Forgotten

Every year for 145 years we have continued to celebrate that fateful Juneteenth day in Galveston, Texas when the 2 year old news arrived that the emancipation proclamation had been signed freeing all slaves. Black slavery was abolished on this Juneteenth day, the 19th day of 1865 in Texas and an emancipation proclamation summary was delivered throughout Texas either officially or unofficially. But have we remembered to celebrate everything?

This Juneteenth celebration a final blow to American slavery has moved beyond the borders of Galveston, beyond the borders of the great State of Texas, beyond the borders of the U.S. to encircle several countries and faiths and peoples. We need to ask ourselves – have we remembered to celebrate everything?

Juneteenth in Galveston Texas is sometimes celebrated for a day or a week and even a whole month. Being freed from slavery can have that kind of memorable effect to where you want generation after generation to almost feel the embrace of emancipation. To remember Juneteenth not only as a time to barbecue and drink – but as a historic marker of freedom for a downtrodden people. Juneteenth celebrations and Texas emancipation should be synonymous in our minds – to be taught to our homeschooled children as history so that it will never be repeated. Remember to celebrate everything. Remember to teach those homeschoolers and youth anywhere near you the importance of this epic day. Remember to share stories about freedom a month before and a month after to emphasize the importance of having the right to be free.

Texas emancipation law is that – an actual law on a physical piece of paper, that needs to be read and remembered. Emancipation in Texas was not taken lightly 145 years ago, we must also remember and try to imagine what it was like to hear the emancipation proclamation summary. Imagine what it was like standing there with half your strength already gone from working all morning (read 4 a.m. until), what it was like to have whip marks on or backs that itched or ached even if they had already healed from years ago.

Imagine standing there barefoot and barely clothed in rags to hear – you are FREE. In your Juneteenth celebrations, remember to celebrate everything – you are FREE.

African American slavery is a crime punishable by law. Juneteenth day from now on has to emphasize, remember to celebrate everything – you are FREE.

The plight of African American people has a solution – FREEDOM. Remember to celebrate everything.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mentoring: A Glue that Binds African Traditions and Should be Shared with Homeschoolers

When the subject of conversation turns to rich culture and traditions, Africa would definitely be a part of that discussion for an internet homeschooler’s curriculum. And with the voyage of Africans to the Great Americas, our people have endured so much-poverty, discrimination, racism and numerous other attacks. The society, as it seemed, had waged war against our race but they were resilient. And now that we are among a different nation, it is imperative that we as African Americans uphold our traditions.

Just looking at how we as African Americans survived the slavery and intolerance against ourselves, most would grow to respect our people. But what made us pliant to all these trials? Was it keeping our traditions? If it was, how did our traditions reach the modern day African American internet homeschooler’s? Handing down these customs to younger generations meant having someone teach the ways of the old. This is where mentoring comes into homeschooling.

Mentoring is simply defined as a process where an experienced individual gives support and encouragement to a person who has less experience. The mentor in an internet homeschooler’s environment then serves as the advisor though his or her example and guidance. Mentoring should be informal or formal, normally depending on circumstances in our homeschool. The most engaging field trip would be to schedule a 15 session with a successful or prominent African American in your city to talk with you internet homeschoolers about the importance of our history upon his or her successes.

With formal/informal mentoring among African Americans, the mentor should be the guide of the student on his academic works. He or she should also guide the student to community affairs which aim to maintain their traditions through several factors such as faith, music, poetry, and others. It could also be as serious as coping with racial discrimination and how to be confident despite the environmental circumstances.

But what are the traditions that need to be handed down to the next generation in our homeschooler’s environment? Looking at the younger generations of African Americans now, we can conclude that they have gone a long way and have improved immensely in all aspects. Confidence and self-worth is a great part of African American mentoring in our homeschools. What is there to be ashamed about our culture anyway? We are a great people and we value close family ties, respect for the elderly and we excel in arts, government, finance, education and sports among many other areas of society.

Due to this need for mentoring among the African American race, 100 Black Men, Inc. was born in 1963. Its purpose is to improve African American lives in a community full of other nationalities. Currently, there are famous members such as Denzel Washington, Bill Cosby, Michael Jordan to name a few examples to be shared in our internet homeschooler’s classes. Outside the organization we have , Ophra Winfrey, Cicley Tyson, Barbara Jordan, and Maya Angelou as a wealth of greatness among our community to share in homeschooler’s studies.

Mentoring was and still is an essential duty of this organization. One of their programs intended that children ages nine until post secondary learning would get holistic knowledge through some rites of passage which includes preparation of the males for their manhood. Also, the subjects cover aspects of heritage, family, etiquette, survival and other skills, and even faith. Resource management, athletics and tutoring are also essential parts of the learning process.

By taking part in such mentoring activities or providing similar activities at home, our young African Americans would develop a better understanding of his or her culture. Pride and self-esteem would also be established without disrespecting other colors or race a vital foundation for any home.

The mentoring process, in general, teaches respect and appreciation for the African culture. By knowing the rich history and contemporary assets of our people, we are better able to keep and protect what rightfully belongs to us which no amount or form of slavery would be able or has been able to corrupt.

A battle lost or won is easily described, understood, and appreciated, but the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation, to appreciate it.
Frederick Douglass

Are Your Home Schoolers Stressing You Out?

Remember the first time you saw your first-born child? You might have been amazed at her eyes, or mesmerized by the perfection of his hands. You might have dutifully recorded the first smile, the first laughs, the first steps, the first dance. He or she became the most important individual in your life. When that little person came into your world, you knew that your life had changed forever.

There is nothing quite like the joy of parenthood. It can lift your spirits on the most miserable day. It gives you a reason to rise in the morning to cheer your homeschoolers to class, and a good excuse for blowing bubbles, catching fireflies, or gazing at a fireworks display. When you give your child a hug at night, you know that all is right with the universe.

However, homeschooler’s parenthood can also be quite stressful. There are so many demands on your time, so many commitments you need to fulfill. Your responsibilities can leave you feeling anxious and frustrated. If your child is sick, or is having trouble in school, or has become involved in drug or alcohol abuse, your stress level could rise to the max.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to eliminate the stressors associated with being a homeschooling parent. They simply come with the territory. While you can educate your homeschooled child, you cannot expect to control him or her, particularly when your child reaches the teenage years. Therefore, you have to learn to somehow manage the stress of homeschooler’s parenthood before it gets the better of you.

The most important strategy you can adopt is to keep the communication going between yourself and your homeschooled child, even when it becomes difficult. Your stress level will be greatly reduced if you can talk with your homeschooled child, especially when something is bothering him or her. It is important for your homeschooled child to know that your love is unconditional, and that he or she can turn to you at any time of the day or night. Strengthening the bond of trust can do a great deal to eliminate your stress.

Another stress-reducing tact you can take is to set aside time to spend with your homeschooled child—other than helping him or her with homeschooling homework. This is particularly important if you have more than one homeschooled child. You need some fun time with your homeschooled child—to let him or her know that you care outside of the structured or unstructered homeschooled environment. Plan for an afternoon of rollerskating or an evening playing checkers. You’ll find that such relaxing activities can help to alleviate your stress.

Also, it is important that you build into your day as a homeschooling parent a break in the action. Have your husband or wife watch the children for ten minutes while you re-group. This is particularly important if you find yourself under so much stress that you are about to lose your temper. Give yourself a homeschooling parent timeout—and watch your stress level drop considerably.

Mention needs to be made about the special stress that single homeschooling parents feel. Theirs is a difficult lot and the pressures can be intense. That is why it is so critically important for single homeschooling parents to strengthen their support systems. They need to have another homeschooling parent, a brother or sister, or friend they can rely on when the stress of homeschooler’s parenting becomes overwhelming. Just having someone to talk to can be a tremendous stress-reliever. In other cases, a homeschooling single parent might need someone to watch his or her homeschooled children for the night so that the parent can re-group. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness—it is indicative of great emotional strength. If you find yourself as a homeschooling parent falling apart, don’t wait for a crisis to get some assistance. If you turn to others for support, you will find that your homeschooling family unit will only grow stronger.

Homeschooler’s Parenting is perhaps the single greatest responsibility a person can hold. As a result, there is a tremendous amount of stress involved. Recognizing that fact is an important part of the homeschooler’s parenting process. Once you are attuned to stress—and the causes of it—you as a homeschooling parent are more likely to be able to manage it well. It is important also for you as a homeschooling parent to recognize that stress management is an on-going process—that it doesn’t happen overnight. However, with time, you can become a first-rate homeschooling stress manager.

Teach Abundance to our Internet Homeschoolers

…homeschool children may be at a greater risk for obesity, give them a chance to live healthy lives!

Health & Family

Sixty-four calories is about four ounces of apple juice or a quarter of an oatmeal raisin walnut CLIF bar. It’s also the number of calories U.S. kids need to trim from their daily diet if they’re going to meet the federal goals for slashing obesity by 2020. 

Without cutting those calories — either by eating less, exercising more or both — a child or teen in 2020 would tip the scales at nearly 4 lbs. more than a kid of the same age weighed in 2007-08, according to research by Columbia University researchers published Tuesday in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. That would result in more than 20% of children being classified as obese; the current figure is 17%.
