What Is Homeschooling and How Do I Know If It's Right FOr My Family?

Written by Anita York

What is Homeschooling And How Do I Know If It's Right For My Family? Do you know what these famous people have in common? Alexander Graham Bell George Patton Albert Einstein Benjamin Franklin Winston Churchill Agatha Christie George Bernard Shaw Will Rogers If you guessed that they were all homeschoolers, you'd be correct. This is a very short list of famous and successful people who were educated at home. If you would like to expand this list, do a search onrepparttar Internet for ?famous homeschoolers.? There are many websites that list these people and some provide detailed biographies. There is even a book called, aptly, ?Famous Homeschoolers,? by Nancy and Malcolm Plant. (http://www.fun-books.com/specials.htm) The point here is to get intorepparttar 109368 mindset that people can be educated and become successful adults without attending public school. And because I can almost ?hear? what you are thinking, no, it is not necessary to have a high school diploma to go to college. So what is homeschooling? Inrepparttar 109369 broadest sense, homeschooling is educating your children at home. You, as parent, become teacher. Parents homeschool for more reasons than you can imagine. Some want to avoid having their children exposed to violence and peer pressure. Some homeschool so that they can make sure their children's education adheres to their religious beliefs. Some live a different lifestyle?perhaps they travel a lot?and want their children's schooling to be flexible enough to fit around that life style. And some, like me, simply enjoy being with their children. They don't wantrepparttar 109370 public school to interrupt and weakenrepparttar 109371 parent/child bond that they have been working hard to create forrepparttar 109372 first five years of their child's life. Just as there are many reasons to homeschool, there are many methods of homeschooling. Allrepparttar 109373 way from ?un-schooling? (learning by doing, learning from life, not using textbook type materials) to ?school at home? (using textbooks at desks set up in a schoolroom at home) and everything in between. It's very easy to find hundreds of homeschool Websites by using a search engine, but just to get you started, try: Jon's Homeschool Resource Page http://www.midnightbeach.com/hs/ When I decided to write this article, I thought hard about what I could offer that wasn't being displayed on thousands of Websites onrepparttar 109374 Internet. I realized thatrepparttar 109375 only thing I have to offer anyone interested in homeschooling is?my experience. So everything inrepparttar 109376 article below comes from my fifteen years of experience homeschooling my four youngest children. I hope it is of some use to you. Deciding to homeschool your child may be one ofrepparttar 109377 most important decisions you ever make as a parent, and it will take a lot of thought and soul searching. Torepparttar 109378 newcomer, it may seem impossible, overwhelming and very, very lonely. But like most huge obstacles, once it's broken down into smaller pieces, it becomes manageable. We'll take it one step at a time, in small enough chunks to get a hold of. So, if you're game, roll up your sleeves and let's get to work figuring out if homeschooling is for you and your child. First things first. Organization isrepparttar 109379 key. Get a three-ring binder (homeschooling parent's LOVE three-ring binders) and put a label onrepparttar 109380 front. (If you've maderepparttar 109381 transition to digital record keeping, you can just start a folder onrepparttar 109382 computer. But it's not as much fun.) Label it something serious, like ? My Homeschooling Plans? or ?Homeschooling Thoughts.? Put some paper inrepparttar 109383 binder, find a really comfortable ink pen, and sit down somewhere quiet. Ready? Good. Now, let's get started. What are your reasons for considering homeschooling? Even if you haven't actually maderepparttar 109384 decision to homeschool,repparttar 109385 fact that you are here reading this article says you are curious. Perhaps you honestly don't knowrepparttar 109386 answer yet?and that's ok. The remainder of this article is going to try to help you start to find those answers. Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but each state has it's own set of laws that must be followed. Compulsory (how I hate that word) education here in Washington State starts atrepparttar 109387 age of 8. Even though I had been homeschooling him from birth, to stay legal once my son reached 8-years old, I was required to become ?certified.? That meant I either had to have two years of college education, or take a ?certification class.? I met this requirement by taking an independent correspondence class, during which I was asked to put on paper my goals, philosophies and reasons for wanting to homeschool. I'd like to help you dorepparttar 109388 same right now. Start a page--eitherrepparttar 109389 ?tree? kind or a file onrepparttar 109390 computer?and title it ?My Educational Beliefs.? List what personal beliefs you have about education?especiallyrepparttar 109391 education of your own children. Get as detailed as you can here--the value is inrepparttar 109392 thinking process behindrepparttar 109393 list. Take your time, I'm in no hurry.

Sequel to Primeval Earth Energy on Magnetism, Electricity and Gravity.

Primeval Earth Energy The Sequel


Say we now throw in a data memory facility torepparttar PEE. Take dowsing, whererepparttar 109367 PEE is sent to earth byrepparttar 109368 brain saying Gold or China or Water or whatever is being searched for then having received a mental confirmation tag on thatrepparttar 109369 brain thinks what depth. Sounds far fetched doesn’t it but that is exactly what dowsers do, viarepparttar 109370 rod orrepparttar 109371 pendulum. Just try a pendulum 29 inches long over a gold bracelet or ring. Think find gold and it circlesrepparttar 109372 bracelet then think how many inches belowrepparttar 109373 pendulum, and circle that many times and stop.

And it does, doesnt it.

Is this far fetched, after all, you just did it yourself. Anyone can. Surely something is communicating betweenrepparttar 109374 brain andrepparttar 109375 pendulum andrepparttar 109376 object, why not intelligent memory PEE, which can pass fromrepparttar 109377 body torepparttar 109378 earth pre programmed byrepparttar 109379 brain. Take this in tandem with sound waves and we seerepparttar 109380 path clear for hypnotism, as PEE passes over sound waves between brains a step further, telepathy sans sound but still energy transference with data memory, no more odd than wireless computer comms same energy being involved so eventuallyrepparttar 109381 message could be contained inrepparttar 109382 energy itself between computers perhaps. Deja vu could well be stray PEE being seen twice like a rebound, similar to synchronicity being a pointer PEE left from a previous attempt by someone elses research being triggered by your own need ofrepparttar 109383 self same data object. Look at telekinesis, poltergeists and ESP in a similar vein . Try thinking onrepparttar 109384 avenues for this yourself. It fits in .

On a totally different tack, if there is so much surface attrition, for so very very long onrepparttar 109385 surface ofrepparttar 109386 Earth due to geological or man made disharmony and disaster, and conversely there is so much warmth, shelter and ley line PEE flowing freely and abundantly underground from pole to pole, then surely it makes sense that there must be beings living underground where energy is easily tapped into, there is no need for heating or shelter fromrepparttar 109387 elements and light sources fuelled by PEE could easily support and sustain abundant crops coupled withrepparttar 109388 unquenchable water supplies. Perhaps extra and differing energy could also be gleaned from tree roots underground, maybe thats why they are called tap roots. Inrepparttar 109389 event of a meteor disaster or nuclear holocaust I would imagine we would be forced underground anyway whether we liked it or not, and there is no reason to suppose this has not happened before. Next time we will finish our trilogy with a glimpse into pre history and our future. Malc pugh copyright may 27th 2004

Primeval Earth Energy Pre History and our future.

Downrepparttar 109390 centuries all previous efforts of man are relegated to being pathetic attempts at civilisation falling short of our own lofty standards. No credence is given to a possibility thatrepparttar 109391 perpetrators were at least as accomplished as us, if not superior. Many of these artefacts and achievements will in any event have been swallowed up by time, eroding and rusting and decomposing and decaying until onlyrepparttar 109392 most durable edifices survive in any case. Evenrepparttar 109393 pyramids andrepparttar 109394 Sphinx were originally covered in an outer coating long since flaked off most of their surfaces. Yet we seem to treat all pre history as being infinitely subordinate to our own science. Take this one example,repparttar 109395 Pyramids. There is sufficient evidence to suppose a flow of energy is generated simply by their being there. This may well be tapping into PEE centuries before us, yet we still struggle on on oil, gas and nuclear fuels, all finite and some with distinctly problematic by products. So who isrepparttar 109396 more advanced if this wererepparttar 109397 case.

The proliferation of pyramids all overrepparttar 109398 globe prompted speculation it was copy cat afterrepparttar 109399 Egyptians, and perhaps before that Atlanteans, who may have been even more advanced, but their satellite states like Egypt may have only retainedrepparttar 109400 technology until it stopped working or no one remained who knew how to keep it going. In this case is it not probable thatrepparttar 109401 Pyramids, wherever their location, were actually forms of power stations. I find many previously inexplicable things in antiquity take on a fresh meaning too when viewed inrepparttar 109402 light of Primeval Earth Energy.

More recently, nothing has caused more speculation thanrepparttar 109403 Philadelphia experiment, well documented by others and needing no help from me. The intention, apparently, was to makerepparttar 109404 destroyer,repparttar 109405 Eldridge, invisible. The means were disputed, but I believe were four huge Tesla coils, two attached to each side ofrepparttar 109406 hull. Taking my previous examples of magnets being able to deflect or absorb Primeval Earth Energy to create a void, or nothingness in between them , where possibly spacecraft could lift off sans gravity as we deem it, then in this case we have a ship and men in somewhere there should be nothingness whenrepparttar 109407 coils were switched on. Presumably this is what was intended to promote invisibility. However, a ship and men cannot be a ship and men AND nothingness. Where can it go. It could perhaps shift into a massless state and move in time. Which is virtually what has been described in what happened if you read about it. Butrepparttar 109408 men were still moving so when it all was turned off, mass reasserted itself, withrepparttar 109409 apparent grisly and grotesque consequences reported physically. Let us now consider this further. The survivors often went into a FREEZE where they were STUCK in time. Is it not possible this is because their bodies had some PEE fromrepparttar 109410 time ofrepparttar 109411 experiment, and some from where and when they ended up, reputedly Montauk, in another time entirely. If so, surely there would be a contrary pull at times byrepparttar 109412 different constituent PEE trying to get back to their own Earth time frame, withrepparttar 109413 men being caught in between so to speak, until one PEE transcended for a time. This would explain some of them walking through walls and disappearing inrepparttar 109414 middle of a fight, widely attested as true by onlookers. If time is involved matter can not be it would seem, and also PEE seems to carry a time stamp with it.
