"Homeschooling During Junior High"
Practical Suggestions for Homeschooling Parents During the Junior High School Years
When we homeschool, we are training up the whole child. God has given us our children to raise and
give them back to Him. During the process, questions are normal and lead to greater understanding of
our mission by their answers. "What am I supposed to be doing? What happens as my child
matures? How do I know the different stages of development? Are they learning enough?
When, what, and where are they supposed to be at during these stages of development?"
Understanding the ages and stages of your child, frees
you to understand whether an action is defiant or developmental. Through the process of home
educating your children, you can find the keys to their hearts and the interests that move them, even when they
are very young. Homeschooling is so much more than just the academics. It is about raising our
children to love the Lord with their whole heart, soul, and mind.
Join us this month as Shelly shares what is appropriate for children during the Junior High School years
and what their typical development-related issues may be. She will also show you what you can do to make the
school day much more smooth with children this age!
This knowledge enables parents to be released from unrealistic pressures for their
children, and allows them to become more confident as they educate their sons and daughters. Shelly
will teach about:
- How to balance the parent and teacher roles,
- What is appropriate for each stage of the Junior High School Years,
- How to keep your child's heart tender,
- Daily habits that help our children to accept training and parenting from the same person, and
- Realistic expectations for children to learn at various grade levels.
- What to do if your child is either above or below grade level
- What subjects to teach and which colleges accept homeschooled students (and how to prepare)
You will definitely want to come and hear about this exciting talk as we discuss training our
children during the Junior High School years. You will learn to balance the relationship between parent and teacher.
Come be encouraged and empowered as you prepare the next generation of followers of Christ!
