You can have the best homeschooling year ever! Your vision will in large measure determine your success. In this session we will explore three topics that lay a vital foundation for the success of your homeschool adventure and that will bring out the best in your children as well.
First, we will discuss the power and purpose that God has invested in your home and family—and in you as a parent. We will also consider the importance of helping your children establish a strong identity, which will enable them to withstand peer pressure as they grow older. We will consider the topic of identity within the context of being image-bearers of God, and ways to develop a strong family identity.
Next, we will identify some simple but dynamic guidelines for strengthening the relationships in your home to provide a strong foundation for both teaching and learning. We will discuss the importance of investing ourselves in the lives of our children—looking at the importance of time and personal presence.
Third, we will learn how to discover and recognize the gifts, strengths, learning styles, and special purposes God has placed within your children. We will also discuss ways to minimize conflict in your home and school day.
These first three tools lay the groundwork for providing stimulating and creative academics in a supportive and loving environment. Our goal is to train children who love the Lord, know how to engage their culture for Christ, and can use their gifts to serve those around them while bringing glory to God. (This webinar is based on Zan's book, 7 Tools for Cultivating Your Child's Potential.)
