Teaching Your Children at Home:

Encouraging Christian Homeschool Families      
"18“So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 19Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 20Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 21so that as long as the sky remains above the earth, you and your children may flourish in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors."  Deuteronomy 11

As a SAHM and Homeschool Mom of 2 Toddlers It's important to know where to begin on this journey of homeschooling or teaching your children to prepare them for p.s. Here's some beginning steps to help you know what you need to do for Homeschooling:

1. Know the Law of Your State especially if you plan on pulling them out of public school
        1. Home School State Laws
  1. Get Connected-Find a Support group
  2. Research & Choose Curriculum
2. Read about different styles of homeschooling from families. Here's some books I've read and that have helped me as a homeschool mom. There's also plenty of groups for homeschooling that you can ask questions on.
  1. Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit by Teri Maxwell. I am planning on rereading this because she gives some great advice to help with dealing with the pressures of being a mom. The Maxwells have been homeschooling for a long time and I love many of their resources. You can visit their website too: www.titus2.com 
  2. A Woman After God's Own Heart® by Elizabeth George I picked up this book when I was a new wife and pregnant with my first child over 4 years ago and I still turn to it and the author has many other books that I would recommend for the whole family.
  3. Mommy, Teach Me to Read: A Complete and Easy-to-Use Home Reading Program I read this and used some suggestions from it.
  4. Help! I'm Married to a Homeschooling Mom: Showing Dads How to Meet the Needs of Their Homeschooling Wives this is a funny book for Dad's but I enjoyed it too.
"Teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." KJV
"Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." NLT
