New How-To Guide for Christian Homeschooling Is a Ground-breaking Australian First

The goal of Christian homeschooling is to equip kids with a holistic thinking toolbox. This requires some form of structure and a ton of nurturing. The best educational outcomes are achieved by utilising what is known as transdisciplinary learning. This is, explains Polytechnic, ‘the integration of knowledge into some meaningful whole.’ Home educators are not raising specialists in a given field (narrow disciplinary learning). The same can be said about insulated ...

Kirk Cameron on Fatherhood, Adoption & Leading by Example

For Hollywood dad, Kirk Cameron, modelling manhood is dad-life proper. Get past the Americana exterior, and the former atheist’s down-to-earth grasp of back-to-basics parenting has gravitas. Known for his role as Mike Seaver in the seven-season sitcom, Growing Pains, Cameron is also a father of six. Four of whom he and his wife of 31 years adopted not long after getting married. Two of whom, arrived later on. He recently shared ...

Look across a spectrum of homeschooling success stories, and you’ll come across the words freedom and flexibility.

Homeschooling Requires Routine, But Flexibility is Still the Key Ingredient

While homeschooling, a timetable is necessary, but so is the ability to pivot and make space for unexpected events. A balance of routine and flexibility will create a healthy learning environment. Make this an axiom: routine is life, yet without flexibility, a routine life is dull. Without elasticity, routine devolves into a rigid, joyless obsession over ledger ticks and timestamps. Flexibility saves routine from its inevitable dreary end. In the context ...

Field Trips: The Benefits for Dads and their Kids

Field trips bring lasting benefits for fathers and their children, providing life lessons and character-building opportunities. If like me, you were a kid in the 1980s, chances are you remember watching The Waltons. The two-story white house, Mary-Ellen, John-Boy, the sawmill, Ike and the general store; the yellow rumble-seat car, the ‘recipe,’ the Baldwin ladies, and John Walton Snr calling out “Good night, everybody” at the close of every episode. There ...

Schooling From Home is Not Homeschooling

Schooling from home may look like homeschooling, but the similarities are only superficial. At a fundamental level, the two are drastically different. Criticising current trends can be like walking into a minefield without a map. One size doesn’t fit all. Despite the assertions of blanket “equality” and blurred distinctions, some distinctions do matter. Everyone is of equal value, but not everyone, nor everything is equal.  For instance, beliefs may align with facts, ...
