August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #242: List The Homeschool Pros And Cons

Tip of the Week

If your children do not seem excited about homeschooling, find out why they are concerned. The most common fear is that they will have no friends. Help them make out a list of homeschool pros and cons. The pros could include the option of being able to travel during the school year, joining groups and co-op programs where they can make friends or that they could do schoolwork online. Talking about your children’s concerns with them can go far in helping them see that homeschooling is not a bad thing.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
