I’d like to share some links of my meanderings around the Internet this past week.
- The Nourishing Cook is giving away a nutrition course for teenagers. Get in quick!
- 2:21 The Mag is an online magazine for teen girls. This magazine is about so much more than fashion or tips on how to catch the eye of that guy you like. They write fun stuff and love to laugh it up but their heart is about getting to know God through the redemptive freedom we have in His Son, Jesus, digging into His Word and embracing the joy of the Spirit.
- Home made scouring powder and other uses for baking powder over at Tammy Recipes.
- Lee Binz, the HomeScholar talks about knowing what is acceptable as real life learning to award as a credit.
- Mark Gregston shares that the teen years are not the time to back off!
- Raising Homemakers has a post titled Etiquette for Little Ones including a pdf print out.
- CCW Online has an article titled Childhood Conversion that is good for all parents to read- print it out though. It might be something you’ll want to refer to.
- An oldie but a goodie is for homeschooling parents- The Moore Formula
Some ask why more families don’t follow this Formula. Most parents are uncomfortable with the unconventional ideas. They teach as they were taught, unaware that such methods are responsible for many of today’s school problems. So they pay heavily for books which tie them, and their children down and burn them out.
- Homeschooling Highschoolers over at Fimby
- Dr. Albert Mohler gives his thoughts on instilling a love of reading in boys
There are several enemies of reading in the lives of boys. The educational system is largely feminized, and boys are often not challenged. We must remember that boys have always been boys, as the saying goes. There is nothing in the constitutional makeup of boys that is opposed to reading. Generations of boys grew to love books and lost themselves in stories, adventures, historical biographies, and the like.
