Be sure your schedule includes any tests and paper work you need to complete. If you need help with scheduling, you can search the internet for ready made schedules and calendars. The most important thing to remember is stick to your schedule once it’s made. No ifs, ands, or buts. As a home school parent, you are not only the teacher, but the principal as well.
As soon as he was clear of the classroom he paused once more, turning ever so slightly as he passed through the doorway. What he found surprised him, for as his eyes scanned the room in search of her, he found she sought him back. He allowed his lips to curl up in the faintest of smiles. She excited him. Her lustrous deep brown eyes made him catch his breath with an anticipation of what it would be like to have those sensual, moist lips press firmly against his. Not that that would ever happen. At least aside from his most intimate of dreams.
“Keisha,” he sounded, a hushed echo reverberating harshly against the cluttered shelving units lining both the walls of the narrow room. He reached down, tenderly grasping her hands while bringing his solid gaze to challenge hers.
First and foremost, be certain you can stick to any schedule you create. This is one of the hardest parts of preparing for back-to-home school. Make sure you talk to your child while you plan their schedule. Sometimes, you may forget about “after-school” activities they may have such as community sports or dance.
Set up your classroom carefully. Purchase color coded bins for different supplies. Have a bookcase set up for all school books. You will also need notebooks to store any paper work, including school work.
The program ought to be as authentic as possible. A stiff, hard fact is that the youths will consume weeks and months in the camps, but will finally return home. By all means this does not hamper with their academic studies. However, it’s important to incorporate normal school activities as well as the academic studies in the scheme of programs for them to be honored back in their usual schools.
Spying should be done discreetly, follow your kids in your car, check the history on the computer, and request to meet their friends. It is only if you suspect your child to be in great danger that you should go through their things when they are not home. If children feel betrayed and state the old, “You went through my things! How could you!” you could let them know that this is still your house and that if they would come to talk to you, then you would not have had to go through their things. Be sure to let your child know you are doing this because you love them and are concerned about them. Let them know if they don’t talk to you that you have no other way of knowing what is going on.
