January 26, 2007, Newsletter Issue #161: Give Your Homeschooling Children Time Alone

Tip of the Week

If you are homeschooling multiple children you should make sure everyone has their own alone time. Many homeschooling parents schedule this as part of the homeschool day. When you are working with your younger children on their elementary homeschool program, allow your older homeschoolers to go to their rooms, outside or to different parts of the home to be alone. When you are working with your older homeschoolers give each of your younger children an activity to do alone in their own space. Allowing these breaks will keep bickering and stress at a minimum.

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).
