Homeschool Q & A
Below are some of the most frequent questions and concerns held by parents engaging in HOMESCHOOL. Stepping out of traditional school curricula has the biggest rewards, but is not without its challenges:
"How do I remain in 'Encouraging Parent Mode' and not become the, 'Disciplinary Teacher'?"
This is the major mind-shift for us parents to grasp, and the area I feel the most passionate about to help you with. We know that it is actually the Inner Being of your Child who is the Teacher. Your role as an adult is to engage in conversation with your child, to help them identify and release their interests and passions and to work together to prepare an environment where they can pick up the threads to find out more. Once you supply this, even just a little, your job is not to actively help your child follow the 'thread' of these interests, but watch where they lead.
Together, you and your child are going to look at your resources in a new light, and build your lateral-thinking muscles. Learning is not what we;ve been conditioned to think it is. If you have a passionto discover a subject, you can pack in four years of a school curriculum into six months. We are here for the new model of learning, Child-Directed, where the subjects they invest their energy in correlate directly to their internal gifts. I will be able to help you structure your home environment so that it becomes a place of possibility and expansion.
"Is it really possible to allow my child to choose what she learns? What if she doesn't choose the right things- the things she needs to know to have a career?"
We have decades of documented proof that children, if allowed to be self-directed within an environment which has been prepared with their thirst for knowledge in mind, will grow into responsible, gifted, intelligent, emotionally balanced adults. It may seem daunting at first, when all your child wants to do is cook in the kitchen- or play outdoor sports. What we need to remember is, that children are closer to SOURCE/God than we usually are, just because of their fewer years of Earth-life. They are able to exercise their own internal balancing homeostasis far more readily than us adults, often entrapped in jobs and positions of responsibility, which call forth specific behaviours from us.
Children will seek balance. If they have struggled with sitting in class for a year, they will seek out ways to balance this. They are still learning- just not as our schooled minds would expect. If you truly beleive they need to spend more time writing ( for example)- spend more time writing yourself. Be the one who inspires through your own example. For example, bring examples of inspired writing into your home. Read more, cultivate a story-time ( even if your child IS eleven years old!), equip your environment with signs and symbols of the joy and brilliance to be found in the realms of writing, buy some coloured inks for a fountain pen! If you force any subject, your child will auomatically rebel. If you allow space for your child to fel inspired, you will cultivate genius.
"How do I go about creating an environment conducive to learning, when I am busy looking after the other little ones at home? I feel I have no time to assist my child, or prepare adequately for his lessons."
The time you spend on creating and nurturing your child's learning does not necessarily need to be when he is actively engaged in it during the day. You can use evenings, family outings, or even visits from adult friends, to pursue finding resources, books, equipment, or even space for your son to work in. The more you 'get out of the way' physically, the freer your son will feel in his pursuit of knowledge. What children want is a feeling of emotional security- rootedness- knowing you are on-hand if he truly needs you, yet being free to pursue his interests. If you can spend your moments of free-time preparing materials (ordering books, buying materials, and clearing a space for him to experiment and study undistrubed by the little ones), he will feel cherished, yet able to pursue his interests without interruption.
My one-on-one sessions can help you identify the best spaces for your child to work: places where they dont feel abandoned, but they also feel free enough to work independently. It is a balance, which, if you can tweak it right, will serve you both.
