Latest Brainy News
As a parent where do your responsibilities lie for your child's education? Most parents readily agree that schools
alone are not responsible for developing children into mature and well educated adults. Most parents readily agree
that it is partly their responsibility to help mold their child into a successful and well educated adult. From this
concept it has been discovered that many parents enjoy teaching their children fully, while still others prefer to have
an official teacher.
However, still there is the ideas that you can combine the two methods. If you are uncomfortable with taking over your
child's education fully you can always create a homeschool plan that will work in conjunction to your child's normal schoolwork
to help them where it is needed most and help develop the skills you as the parents want to see developed.
With more parents
considering homeschool each year, more are also considering a combination of the methods. The ultimate result for all parents
is the same, raising a happy healthy child. How each family chooses to get there is entirely up to them. With the help of this
newsletter it is my hope that you can discover some things that you can do with your child to help further their education, either
completely from your home, or as a joint venture with their teachers.
Thought for today:
" Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and
decide not to surrender, that is strength. " - Arnold Schwarzenegger
