The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016

Parents need to have the numerous and the best options when it comes to raising their children. It nice to see how a lot of things have changed since the time of our parents. I remember growing up without all of these new technology: no iPads, no smart phones, no internet. And with all of these new things, the available channels for our children to learn new things have increased exponentially, too.

With the fast paced lifestyle and with information readily available, lifestyle, habits and mindsets have also changed. In terms of education, the only choice that we had before was to go to school (as we know it) and listen to our teacher. A new option though has risen which is now believed to be an equally great option — homeschooling. Homeschooling or home education is when the parents personally teach their children.

For those who want to learn more about homeschooling, please do attend this conference!

 

PHC 2016-For Social Media Posts (with logos) -As of Sept 27)

This year, HAPI, in cooperation with Philam Life, is setting up the PHC to be even bigger and better than before. This event is set to take place from 7 a.m. (start of registration) to 6 p.m. on October 22, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center, SMX Aura Premier in Taguig City, the PHC 2016 with the theme “From Roots to Wings: Homeschooling through the Stages”.

Hoping to meet the needs and address the concerns of homeschooling families at different stages – from learning more about homeschooling, getting started, and staying the course perhaps even up to the end of high school – the theme was inspired by the following lines of this poem:

“If I could give you just two things,
One would be Roots, the other, Wings.”
Roots, not to tie you to the ground,
But to guide you to
where your fulfillment is found
The nourishing start, the firm
foundation,
The source of your inner determination.
Wings to soar over obstacles,
wings to fly free,
Wings to glide to the heights of the
best you can be.”

Bearing the theme in mind, the PHC 2016’s line-up of speakers includes international and local speakers who are passionate homeschooling advocates, and are also experienced homeschoolers. The PHC 2016 Expo is also sure to delight any homeschooler with its offerings of products and services that can help them provide their kids with a rich learning experience.

I guarantee that this event will not disappoint. If you want to know more about the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016, please any of the following:

Homeschooling is Cool!

I have always admired parents who homeschool their children. Contrary to what people think of homeschooled children that they probably lack social skills, most of the homeschooled children that I have met are very confident and some are even really good at conversing with adults even. But what really impressed me is that these children are very independent.

As a parent, my wish is for my daughter to grow up to be an independent, happy and confident individual. I know that homeschooling can definitely help since the parents will always be the child’s best teacher.

My goal as a parent is to raise an independent child!

I’m in the stage of parenthood where I am looking at different practices, methods and looking at the experiences of other parents. I want to see and explore options especially in terms of education. One of the options that I am looking at is Homeschooling. I admire my friends who are homeschooling parents because it seems like it takes a great deal of patience to teach your children. It also seems like a homeschooling parent never runs out of ideas — they constantly need to be entertaining, fun, innovative, etc. so that their kids will learn. I love their passion for learning, too!

To Homeschool or Not to Homeschool?

Zeeka’s (my daughter) is already almost 1 year and a half. I already get questions on where will I send her for pre-school? Just yesterday, my mom was already urging me to check out schools, which I really plan to do anyway. In the Work-at-home community that I am a part of though, a lot of the moms their homeschool their children. Then there are progressive schools.

In the past years, Homeschooling has already become an option because in truth, you, as parents, we are the best teachers for our children. Also, the tuition fees of traditional school has gone up and is steadily increasing at around 8-10% per year.

From what I read, Homeschooling is really not for everyone. It takes a lot of dedication and heart! Homeschooling is a choice and you have to really commit to it once you decide to homeschool your child. I actually haven’t decided yet on whether to homeschool Zeeka or not. I want to explore and research about it more. That is why Manila Workshops and the Learning basket is holding the second Homeschooling Conference entitled Educating for Life on September 6, 2014. This is supported by the Homeschool Association of the Philippines. This conference is also co-presented by Unilab.

In this day and age, a lot of choices are now available to us, parents, which is actually great! There are so many choices on how to educate our children and sometimes it can be overwhelming. What we can do is research and try to observe our children, too. As early as when I was still pregnant with Zeeka, I was already researching about homeschooling, progressive schools and traditional schools. I plan to continue learning more about these forms of education until it’s time for Zeeka to really go to school. How about you, mommy and daddy and guardians, have you thought about your child’s education? Have you checked out the different forms of education?

BTW, I was impressed with this young lad speak at Ted Talks.

Preschool Dilemmas: Fear not! You can Homeschool your Child

As early as now, I am thinking of Zeeka’s education. My husband says it is still too early to worry about it. But being the stubborn me, I have already read blogs of the other moms and have checked out the websites of ‘schools’ that she can go to even as a baby. But apart from all these schools and places where they teach and develop children, at home, I honestly don’t know what to do to teach her.

I had my first experience in teaching a child when David, my nephew was smaller. I used to teach him ABC while I was on maternity leave that time (which was just a few hours a day). But, I know that was completely different. David was a nephew and most of the teaching really came from my BIL and SIL, his parents.

Now that I have my own daughter, I am with her 24 hours and I know that the task of teaching her will be on me. I have grown attached to her and sometimes, I think if I will ever be ready to see her go to school and not be with her at home. I know that every kid now is required to go to preschool, but for those who think that their 3-year-old is too young to be sent off to a preschool, you might be interested in homeschooling your preschooler.
