Hi,
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
