Homeschooling, when some people think about it, they shudder at the thought and yet its one of Gods destined things for us to do.
It is up to the parents to teach, discipline and correct our children especially in the first 6 years of their lives when they absorb so much. They learn very quickly what is right and wrong, what is ethical, spiritual etc. If they are left with others who do not believe what you do, you are leaving your kids to be trained by someone else. Believe me, they will absorb everything from the other person just as they would absorb everything from you if you had to spend the time with them. I for one do not want to do that.
As Gods word so rightly states: Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6). It is our responsibility. Not another person, teacher at school etc. Ours and only ours.
In todays life people use the excuses that both parents have to work to make ends meet. In most cases people could have lived on less, sold one car etc as its more about the child than money. It is all about priorities and for some it is all about making more and more money and sending their kids to a day school of sorts and then wonder why their children become who they are one day. Please understand this is my personal opinion and conviction. Joshua 24:18. I believe and want to have our household serve the Lord and therefore do what God wants us to do. Not just read the bible and do nothing about it.
One of the things that is awesome is a program called Apologia Science Homeschool Curriculum.
Apologia introduces an elementary level Anatomy book that gives glory to God as children discover what’s going on inside their bodies! Take this in-depth journey into the anatomy and physiology of your body through Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology by Jeannie Fulbright and pediatrician Brooke Ryan, M.D..
From the brain in your head to the nails on your toes, you and your students will encounter fascinating facts, engaging activities, intriguing experiments, and loads of fun as you learn about the human body and how to keep it working well. Beginning with a brief history of medicine and a peek into cells and DNA, your students will voyage through fourteen lessons covering many subjects, such as the body systems: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous and more! They’ll study nutrition and health, how God designed their immune system to protect them, along with embryology and what makes them a unique creation of God. As they work their way through the course, your students will enjoy adding the organs about which they learn to their own personalized human figure to be placed in their course notebook. In addition to all this exploration, your students will enjoy scientific experiments and projects, such as testing the bacteria content around the house, finding their blood type, creating a cell model from Jello and candy, and even building a stethoscope! In keeping with the other books in the Apologia elementary science Young Explorer Series, the Charlotte Mason methodology is employed with engaging narratives, narration prompts and notebooking projects, all of which reinforce their learning using proven techniques that strengthen retention.
Enjoy the journey towards God and do what He wants you to do.
