Nine Steps to Getting Started

Lay the Foundation. Your reasons for deciding to home school will lay the foundation for your entire home-schooling experience. Why are you making this decision? a desire for a better education? greater influence on character/discipline? Finding a home-schooling method which is right for your family will involve some experimenting. Home education is a work in progress.

Be Informed. Read books about homeschooling. Hewitt's Home Education Guide will show you how to homeschool the Hewitt way. Select ideas that support your philosophical foundation and that will help you meet your educational goals.

Know your pupils, your children. Seek methods of teaching which will play to their learning styles and interests while bolstering the areas in which they are weak.

Learn what your school authorities require. Write or call the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA, P.O. Box 159, Paeonian Springs, VA 22129, []) for information on how to comply with the state laws. If you are a member and your home-school rights are threatened, HSLDA's home-school attorneys will represent you.

Join a Support Group. Attend home-school support group meetings in your area. Look for one in which your children can participate in group activities and socialization. You may visit more than one to find the right size or style; you may even decide to develop your own small group with several other families.

Create an Education-Friendly Home. Begin to gather resources and prepare space for your home school. Some suggested items are a table/desk, bookcase, storage space for supplies, computer, map/globe, dictionary, thesaurus, field guides, nature books, good reading material, encyclopedias, educational games, paper, pencils, and art materials.

Select Curriculum and Develop Goals. A curriculum is not only books; it is all the things used to meet your goals. It needs to be appropriate for your children's abilities. There are many different criteria used in selecting materials. The materials we carry reflect the Hewitt method of homeschooling.

Set goals that will help your students develop an intrinsic love for learning and inspire creativity in four major areas: academics, character building, service, and work. True homeschooling is not patterned after traditional public education. It integrates practical skills with the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of education.

Develop Discipline and Earn Respect. Be consistent leaders. As role models for your children, give them cause to respect you. Children feel more secure and less frustrated when they know who is in control.

The golden rule should be the basis of all rules. Rules should be few and reasonable; they should include obedience, courtesy, and safety. Children need to know what is expected and the consequences of broken rules.

Develop Order. There is a time in life for many things, but your children will never be this age again. Now is the time for your children.

Simplify your lifestyle. Weed out activities and things that don't support your decision to homeschool. Together organize a routine that meets your family's needs.

Be Enthusiastic! Children learn attitudes from parents. If you are happy, interested, and excited about what you are teaching, they will be happy about learning. Many parents declare they learn more than the children during their first year of home teaching.

Trust the Work of the Holy Spirit. One parent observed in her church a family whose children seemed very well-mannered, bright, and helpful to young and old alike. They were cheerful, willing to do their best, and respectful. When they entered those difficult teen years, these children grew to be even more responsible. Asked her secret, the mother replied that every morning she went to each child's room, awakened him softly, knelt by his bed, and prayed that God would be with him that day and help him to do right, to learn, and to use the talents God had given him. She also prayed for wisdom in helping him learn to live a Godly life.
