Boredom
By Barbara Frank

When our family first began homeschooling, I wanted every day to be chock-filled with discovery and wonder for my children. I pictured incredible, mind-blowing unit studies, fascinating books and curriculum, and countless field trips, to get them out of the house a lot. I intended to provide so many worthwhile educational opportunities for them that they would never be bored.

To me, bored children signified failure on my part: Failure to hold their interest, to keep them engaged in learning about the world around them. I had often experienced intense boredom as a child, trapped in a school room. I did not want my children to feel that way.

But no matter how carefully I chose learning materials and opportunities, I couldn't always find something that interested everyone. Sometimes, someone got bored. After all, people have different interests. To make matters worse, there were also times when we weren't doing school that they were bored. I dreaded hearing someone exclaim: "Mom, there's nothing to do!"

I felt it was up to me to keep them occupied and entertained, even though I had so many other responsibilities. When we first began homeschooling, my older children were five and six. We did school in the morning, and in the afternoons I ran myself ragged working at home as a free-lance editor, while keeping the house running and the kids busy. We had recently moved, so I also needed to unpack and organize everything.

This went on for about six months, and then I got sick, and not just for a day, either. I was sick for nearly three months. I had developed a chronic medical condition that was aggravated by stress. I put my editing job on hold, and my husband took over my household duties at night, after work. As for the children? They were forced to entertain themselves, and they did.

Clark Financial Group, Inc. – Solutions for Funding College
By Janet Esposito

“What career is best for me? What college is best for me? How am I going to pay for college?” Helping your student prepare for entering college is similar to taking on a part-time job. There is school selection, entrance-exam preparation, and admissions letters – all incredibly time-consuming efforts for both parent and students. But for parents, the scariest part of the entire process is the cost of secondary education. Tuition, books, meal plans, housing, all add up quickly.

Fortunately, we all know there is financial aid available. Federal money, state money, athletic scholarships, institutional scholarships, private institution grant money – there are all kinds of financial aid available to those who qualify. But where do you begin? There are so many moving parts; so many balls to juggle. The entire endeavor can feel absolutely overwhelming for busy parents, especially those families struggling through these difficult economic times.
