10 Things NOT to Do When You Start Homeschooling

Although my own start into the homeschooling life all those years ago was a bit, um, rocky, some good did come out of it. I can use those experiences to help others. 🙂

Visit my channel today to find out 10 things I highly recommend you NOT do when you begin your homeschooling journey.

They Want Your Kids to Be Wards of the State

I hate to say I told you so…but I told you so.
Earlier this week I made a video about how the elite/statists have a utopian vision of children one day being out of the clutches of their parents, only to be raised in schools/institutional settings by the government, instead.
In that video, I spoke about how the school days/compulsory ages are being stretched out longer and longer so that children would be under governmental control longer. You simply couldn’t make indoctrination happen any easier.
I also spoke about the plan to one day create public boarding schools. Another step towards the elimination of the family.

A couple days ago, Kamala Harris gifted us with evidence of everything I spoke about. I also came across some very disturbing information about public boarding schools.

Sounding the Alarm | My Viewers Give Me Strength

Today’s video is going to be a little bit different. Over the past month or so, I’ve been getting so many encouraging emails from people who watch my channel, and these messages have helped me in so many ways. So…what I decided to do today is to share how I got to where I am – sounding the alarm – about public education. I’m also sharing one specific email I got which is a perfect example of why I do what I do.

Unboxing Our Very First THINKING TREE FUNSCHOOLING JOURNALS!!

Although we have been a notebooking family for quite some time, up until this point, we’ve never tried the Funschooling journals that so many people recommended to us.

A couple weeks ago, @funschooling.adventures shared a giveaway, which I entered and WON! Yesterday my package arrived, and I impatiently waited to open it all day so that I could do it with you in an UNBOXING video!

Head over to my channel today to see my first impressions of the journals and for a detailed flip-through. 😊

Homeschooling |The Trouble with Too Much Fun

Over the last few weeks, I’ve covered some really heavy topics, so last night I decided to give my brain a break and go back to a homeschool video.
Trust me. I needed the reprieve. It is mentally exhausting to think about the sort of things I talk about all the time. 😭

Let’s talk about fun. Keeping your kids excited and interested by doing fun activities is a must when it comes to homeschooling. But let’s talk about the other side of that – when your “fun” starts to take away from your child’s education.

They Want Your Children, and They’re Not Hiding It

Here’s the video I promised the other day when I shared the screenshots from the PSEA advertisement on Instagram. Apparently, YouTube doesn’t agree with what I had to say because they demonetized it before it was even published. Dressing boys in drag is just fine for ads, but standing up for families is controversial. Got it. 🤦‍♀️

Public Education and the Hidden Curriculum Part 7: ONE CAN’T HIDE

Today I made another Patreon video public. 🤗

If you’re even slightly acquainted with Orwell’s 1984, then you’ve most likely heard the expression “Big Brother is watching you,” and it couldn’t be more true today.

One thing people tend to forget, though, is that the public education system is another arm of Big Brother, and make no mistake about it – surveillance is another aspect of the hidden curriculum.

Plan a Homeschool High School Week with Me!

Last week when I published my Plan with Me post, I received a few requests for me to do one for our high schoolers, as well. So I did. 🙂

As simple as my homeschool planning is for my 1st through 8th graders, my high school planning is even simpler.
Sounds counterintuitive, right? I explained why this is the case in my latest video.

Homeschooling Is for EVERY Child

It’s time to get something straight – there is no child that isn’t a “good fit” for homeschooling. This is a notion brought on by generations of social conditioning. Parents were the primary educators of their children for THOUSANDS OF YEARS. School as we know it has been but a blink of an eye.

It is natural for children to be home. It is natural for kids to be with their families. The problem we face is that we’ve been trained to forget this.

Science: Relaxed Homeschooling

Today is my last video in my Relaxed Homeschooling series…for now. Over the past few weeks I’ve shared how we approach language arts, math, and social studies. Today I’m tackling science.

Always remember that your child’s education need not look a thing like school. In fact, we don’t use any textbooks at all to cover social studies or science, the two main subjects that people feel chained to textbooks for.

I hope you gain some new ideas (if you’re looking for new ideas 😉)!
