Homeschool - Planning AheadWritten by Mary Joyce
Probably one of first tasks you should assign yourself after you have committed to your decision to homeschool would be to investigate homeschooling law in your area. As a parent you will need to understand your stateís laws and regulations concerning operating of a homeschool. Each state sets its own guidelines, parameters, and regulations for homeschooling. Some are quite easy and some are not. There is no general statement that applies to all states. Be sure to inquire and get copies of all homeschool rules and regulations for your state.
Be sure to check with your state about mandatory school ages. If possible donít feel as though you have to begin homeschooling your child at traditional age if state allows. Studies show that many children that start traditional schooling at required early age also get bored earlier that those who start at a later age.
Looking ahead what about college? Do home schooled kids have trouble being accepted into colleges? Without question! Home schooled young people have successfully enrolled in State Universities across country, Tech Schools, even Ivy League Universities. In fact, many universities send recruiters to Homeschool seminars and conventions to attract home schooled kids.
Massage SchoolsWritten by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot
Massage schools and massage school instruction are one of fastest growing elements in healthcare. There are nearly a thousand massage schools and training courses in US, alone. Beside massage schools there are several community, technical and University Colleges that offer massage instruction courses as well.(Holistic Junction has a comprehensive listing of massage schools onsite.)
It is important when searching for massage schools to find right one for you. With so many varieties of massage schools and over 200 massage techniques, one should try different massages to see which s/he might be interested in learning. A trial apprenticeship with an established massage schools and/or massage professionals is a unique way to see if you really want to learn and practice massage.
Massage schools offer beneficial, healing techniques to potential practitioners. Because massage is most natural of ways to heal, massage schools expand our knowledge on our instinctual, nurturing human touch. Studies ultimately reveal that touch reduces stress and depression, alleviates pain and reinforces immune system. Simply, massage schools teach us to touch therapeutically. Massage schools not only instruct us how to heal, but there are several massage associations that support and promote benefits of each massage therapist and massage schools.
