This is the reason I immediately said yes when I was invited to the Philippine Homeschool Conference Expo (PHC). I wanted to expand my knowledge, I wanted to make sure that homeschooling is part of my options when the time comes for Choi and Chai to study.
I was late to the event, but yes, I got some useful and inspirational tidbits from Andrew Pedewa about homeschooling.
- Most children will prefer punishment more than failure
- If you spend 60-80% of your time making children do what they can do then you will have a motivated person
- One thing is by far the most important of all things - that is the students know that you love them
- Always say the positives
- The power of the smile
- Affirm your children - tell them you appreciate them and love them everyday
