Education has such an impact on our children, and with home schooling you get an excellent opportunity to influence your child’s education. Not only do you get to shape the curriculum and schedule, but you are given the chance to spend more time with your child.
Schooling is such an important part of a young person’s life. And education continues throughout life, so whatever you can do to inspire learning, and cause your children to have curiousity, and a thirst for more knowledge – well, all the better. Help your youngster to hone his talents, and encourage him or her to explore things in this world. That is how your student will begin to know where his or her interests lie.
Parents instinctively know many things about their kids; so, because of this, a parent can make an excellent teacher. The parent(s) have more drive to see to it that their child becomes learned. So who better to teach them? Additionally, the parents (or guardian) want the best for their children. Also, if a parent homeschools, he or she can see to it that the homeschool schedule fits the student. This more easily allows for afterschool curriculum.

Home Schooling: Preparations
You must steel yourself and your kids for all the challenges ahead. While the road to achievement with Home schooling may be bumpy, at least there won’t be any “KEEP OUT” signs. You choose what topics you are interested in having your children know about! If you feel you want your child/student to know more about different cultures (incl. 3rd world nations possibly), then you can darn well include a World Culture class, and possibly schedule learning languages .
You can also make your kids more aware of the world situation through hands-on activities, like Volunteer work, or sending things via donation to children in third world countries after you’ve studied their nation in your class.

Things Important to a Child – Is Child Abandonment an Issue?
Get this. As a child, I was very sensitive. The things my parents did (or failed to do) really struck home with me.
I am going to be truthful here, about the good things my parents did as well as some things that really hurt. Maybe it will help you.
Spending quality time with my dad was quite important to me. So much so, that I would even do chores outside (like raking leaves) in order to be with him. My dad was accepting of this and praised me for contributing.
Some kids are sensitive like this. If your child pipes up & offers to do something (& you’re involved), don’t dismiss it out of hand.

Minot Restaurants: Montana Mike’s Has a Kids Menu & Lunch Specials
BY JAN ASHBY
One of the very SPECIAL items is the Steak with Mushrooms offering – of course, you’ll love it if you’re partial to mushrooms (which I am). If you don’t go for this, then perhaps the Flame-grilled Chicken breast, Angus steak kabobs, Angus Sirloin Beef Tips, or Catfish would be to your liking. All of their steaks are AGED STEAKS, and do have a good flavor as they are “USDA Prime Aged Beef”.
The atmosphere at Montana Mike’s is rather loud – so be sure you don’t go when you have a headache ! Also, they do have wi-fi and a full bar.
