Homeschooling is something I have always wanted to try with the little man. I was actually contemplating on teaching Jared at home instead of sending him to a brick-and-mortar institution. I got a lot of discouraging remarks from a number of people, including his dad, so I had to give in and enroll him in a regular school. I am not closing my doors, though, and I wish I can have the courage and the guts that most homeschooling parents do.
If you are considering homeschooling but getting a lot of negative feedback from so many people, here is a perfect conference for you participate in that might just give you the right amount of inspiration and encouragement to plunge into homeschooling and set up your little learners for future success.
TMA Homeschool, in coordination with Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket , is proud to present its Parents Conference for 2015, entitled Set Them Up For Success. It will be held at the Bayanihan Arts and Events Center from 8AM for registration (program starts at 9:00) to 5:00PM.
If you are a parent wondering what the best kind of education for your child is and where he will learn and be successful someday, then don’t miss the upcoming Parents Conference of TMA Homeschool at the Bayanihan Center, Unilab on March 12.
This event, entitled “Set Them Up for Success”, is set to enlighten and inspire you to raise your children to become happy, responsible, productive adults and leaders “wherever they are planted”. It will run for a whole day and will consist of keynote topics like “Set Them Up for Success” and “Catching your Child’s God-given Bents for Success”. Keynote speakers are Edric Mendoza and Jayson Lo.
Mr. Mendoza is a homeschooling father of five, the president of the Homeschoolers Association of the Philippine Islands and lead anchor of ANC’s On the Money. Mr. Jayson Lo is a known inspirational speaker in the country and is the author of Younique:Understanding Others by Understanding You, a book about how personality styles help identify one’s strengths and weaknesses.
Aside from keynote talks, the conference will also feature workshops on character education, multi-level homeschooling, homeschooling through high school, adjusting teaching strategies for effecting learning, and celebrating dads who homeschool. Participants may also opt to attend a Q&A forum where TMA Homeschool will answer questions about homeschooling in the Philippines. Speakers for these sessions are seasoned homeschoolers Donna Simpao, Millona Barraca, Bles de Guzman, Joy Mendoza, and Dennis Sy. Participants may choose one track for each talk happening simultaneously. Expect a day filled with doses of homeschool inspiration and information about parenting and homeschooling.
