We have three children, Tessa 1 year and my two stepchildren Callum 8 years and Grayer 10 years. My husband told me I have to stay home and homeschool my children but I dont know how. I can't say no or tell him I need help or he will get mad. Anyone have any advice on how I should homeschool my kids? Kisses~ Manda <3

Your State has guidelines for home schooling. Including books to use. Main thing is run like a "normal" school time. TV, Video games, music OFF Would be helpful to have a baby sitter for the baby, either in house or close by. You do not have to know all the Information. Follow your curriculum. Make it fun. Be fair, but strict on their study time. So they know when breaks are. Give homework if necessary.

Vic Originally Answered: Homeschool students: Would you join a national homeschool student newspaper staff?
I'd be a reporter, and I know I'd really love it. Do you know if anyone will start such a thing? 2) Of course I'd take it seriously, I love writing, and I've always taken it very seriously (except when the criticism part comes along and I take it very sadly :D) 3) I'm sorry, but I don't really understand the meaning of this one, maybe you could get back to me? My mom does a lot of writing and helping homeschoolers, and I'd like nothing better than to follow in her footsteps.

It is typical in the sense that most parents have to deal with the fighting, arguing, and chaos but I do believe that you can find some relief so that you and your family have some relaxing time together. First of all, children need structure. When you get everyone in the door in the evening, split the children between your husband and yourself and work together to get what needs to be done, done. All children that walk and talk are capable of assisting in family activities. Your 3 year old can sort silverware from the dishwasher. Your 5 year old can put dishes away and your 8 year old can load the dishwasher. The same thing can be accomplished with laundry. The girls can earn points for the things they accomplish which can be cashed in for rewards such as an evening at the movies or a family trip for bowling. Believe me, I know you are tired when you come home from work. The girls are simply wanting your attention and they will do anything to get it. You need to find ways to give them good attention. Make sure that dinner and bed time are consistent, every night. It is reasonable to expect an 8 year old to be in bed by 8:30. Then you can relax in the tub, read a book, or cuddle with hubby. Just being in the same room with the children is not the same as spending time with them and believe me, they know the difference. Good luck.

I have 4 kids ages 14, 13, 9, & 7. I know exactly what you're talking about. My kids have gotten better simply by getting older. I think the most important thing you have to do if you really want to get this under control (and it sounds like you do) is to immediately stop the behavior the instant it starts. This is pretty time consuming and not much fun at first, but it worked with mine. Don't let them get to the point that you have to scream to be heard. By that time they are already so wound up that nothing will help. We use corner time. Example, my youngest child is bad about yelling entirely too loud. He yells, he goes into the corner. He whines or acts up while in the corner, he stands there longer. Again, you have to be VERY consistent about this. And it sucks to have to be a drill sergeant basically, but it does work. After they figure out you mean business, life will be much calmer. Good luck.

nonsensical. I LOVE that word! lol My husband and I have three toddlers. Ages 4, 2 and 1. I can tell you first hand that there are days that I swear my children were abducted by aliens and they left these terrible acting little monsters in my house. lol In other words, its typical. That being said, I guess I'm lucky because my kids are actually pretty good. I mean, they are kids and they run around and yell and bicker, but I rarely feel like its just really out of hand. Maybe I've just learned to accept it a bit more than you. Or perhaps I've just simply learned to tune them out a bit more than you. lol Just hang in there. Remember that the good outweighs the bad. When in doubt, take them somewhere that they can run off all their energy for awhile and you can hopefully have 5 minutes of peace once you get them home again. Also, structured activities help A LOT. Sometimes they act the way they do just because they are bored. lol Good luck Mom! *In case you haven't seen/heard this, this is our anthem. The Mother's Anthem. lol Enjoy! **Disclaimer: Make sure you use the restroom BEFORE viewing this because its highly likely you'll laugh so hard you'll pee your pants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMhuAtyFCrw
