Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Why do so many parents who seriously consider homeschooling stop short of actually trying it?

Quite a few of them worry about their children’s ability to earn a living when they grow up. When we run into resistance to homeschooling, we often hear something like this: “If he doesn’t go to a ‘real’ school, how will he learn the skills he’ll need to get a good job? To say nothing of going to college!”

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

A few years ago, in the middle of a 10th-grade science class I was teaching at a local public high school, a girl unexpectedly rose from her seat and demanded her classmates’ attention.
“Listen, everybody! I’ve got something to tell you. I’m pregnant — I’m gonna have a baby!”
After a round of applause, one of the students asked a question: “Who’s the baby’s father?”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the 15-year-old girl. “But there’s only four or five guys it could be.”

Why You Should Homeschool Your Christian Child - Part 1

by Lee Duigon
Part 2 | Part 3

It needs more than ever to be stressed that the best and truest educators are parents under God. The greatest school is the family … The moral training of the child, the discipline of good habits, is an inheritance from the parents to the child which surpasses all others. The family is the first and basic school of man.

            — R. J. Rushdoony[1]

What 98% of Christian Teens Lack and What Christian Parents Can Do About it Today

by David G. Hagopian

Christian pollster, George Barna, reports that only 2% of all born-again American teens have a biblical worldview. This means that 98% of Christian teens lack a Christian worldview! How did we get here? Before we can answer this important question, we first need to understand a little bit about worldviews. A worldview is a set of assumptions we hold about the world and our lives in it that shapes what we think, say, and do. We get our assumptions from many places, most notably at home and in the classroom.

IN THE PROCESS OF RECOVERY
Often, those of us who struggle with issues relating to your behavior, fail to realize that recovery is a process, not a goal that once reached we think that we do not have to put out an effort. Paul writes in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, that he has ran a good race, and finished the course, and have kept the faith. What a wonderful statement. Paul was describing the process of life.

Train Up Your ChildrenPremium Content

Proverbs 22:6 RSV
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

From the Associated Press (Garland, Texas):An essay that won a 6-year-old girl four tickets to a Hannah Montana concert began with the powerful line: "My daddy died this year in Iraq." While gripping, it wasn’t true — and now the girl may lose her tickets after her mom acknowledged to contest organizers it was all a lie.

We Fight the Wrong Way

Ephesians 6:12, 18 (NRSV)
For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. . . . Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.

Criticism vs. FeedbackPremium Content

    If you have no heart to change it, you have no right to criticize it.

I'm skeptical whenever someone wants to provide "constructive criticism."

I think criticism is a passive-aggressive form of boasting, an easy way to attract attention while trying to appear concerned. Critics often claim that they're trying to help, but the real intent is to find fault, to highlight some flaw or failure.

In a sadly transparent admission of impotence, the critic tries to cast himself as the expert and raise his perceived status by tearing down someone else. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn, and most fools do."
