Racist Homeschooling: “I Don’t Even Care.” Girlfriends’ Guide to Homeschooling with Angela Jordan Perry

Are you racist and homeschooling?

So…are you a ‘Racist Homeschooler?”

Ahhhh…..hard topic, right?

I just jumped right in there and put it out there……..Just. Like. That.

To make sure that we are on the same page regarding the definition of ‘racist’ let me explain where I’m coming from regarding ‘racist’ or ‘racism.’

Racism is the idea of being superior over another race/or group of people.

Also, racism is NOT having a desire to or purpose to be in community with other races beside your own.

When we moved to South Carolina 2005 we were smacked right dab in the race divide with racist homeschoolers.

We’ve grown through it as a *brown skin* family while homeschooling in SC.

We just kept doing what we needed to do.

Just kept moving but talked about it at length when we were in the privacy of our home.

Needless to say, 12 years later living in South Carolina and homeschooling here in South Carolina while some relationships outside of our race have been made in our homeschooling journey……but much *tolerance* has been the case instead of true connection and joining together.

For years now we’ve just *moved on* through all of the discomforts of this topic and situation as we homeschool.

How many of you are enduring the same?

If this topic of discussion hits a nerve….a nerve that it bothering you….then you may need to soberly think about this subject.

If you understand where I’m coming from ……then hang around and let’s talk about ‘racist homeschooling’ openly.

You’ve not talked about it. Nor have you had a comfortable or safe place to discuss this.

Now you do!

Well….we are going to discuss this topic over the next several posts with Girlfriends’ Guide to Homeschooling on FB live videos and on the YouTube channel for Girlfriends’ Guide to Homeschooling.

Here’s the introduction of this topic!!

Expect to see Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and even Part 4 on this subject. 🙂

Share your thoughts, comments, concerns etc.

(Share on your social media pages. This may be *just* the topic your homeschooling friends, family or others. Ha! need to see.)

Guest Blogger: Sin, Forgiveness, Redemption and a PG Movie (Elizabeth Doan)

Earlier this evening, my daughter came to me and said that she had watched a movie with some bad words in it with a friend. I could tell she was struggling and I wanted to “freak out.” I said a quick prayer in my head for God to guide me in how to deal with this one.

After all, she did come to me and tell me.

A few moments later, God gave me an answer that I hope she will keep with her always. I told her that the little voice that was telling her that the movie wasn’t right was God’s Holy Spirit nudging her.

When she asked Jesus into her heart, the Holy Spirit took up permanent residence.

I told her that if she was ever not sure what to do, to pray and let the Holy Spirit guide her. I let her know that I wished she would have chosen not to watch the movie as soon as she felt that it wasn’t right.

She was feeling pretty awful as I spoke.

Then I told her the best part.

I told her that all she had to do was pray to God and ask for forgiveness and that He promises to make us clean again and to throw that sin as far as “the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12).

I explained that when Jesus died on the cross, He covered us and made us clean and white as snow when we mess up, that we’re a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). I finished by telling her that after He throws our sins away that He expects us not to keep repeating the same sin and that it’s our gift back to Him to do better and listen to the Holy Spirit.

She cried and hugged me and thanked me for comforting her. Oh my heart!

Sin, Forgiveness, Redemption and a PG Movie

I know that a movie may not seem like a big deal. But I also know, that throughout her life, she’s going to mess up in things both big and small. I don’t ever want her to feel like it’s all over, that she is damaged.

That’s the devil talking and God offers us so much more.

I want her to remember that the Holy Spirit will be with her always and she needs to listen to it.

I also want her to know that there’s forgiveness and grace.

I want her to know this message so badly because her Momma has messed up so bad on so many things big and small.

In those messes, I let Satan tell me that I’d never be good enough, that I was damaged goods and that God could never use me.

I believed him for so so long.

Then one day, redemption set in…God’s grace.

Let me tell you, He’s blessed me with my hearts desires and my cup runneth over every day. I’ll never been the same now that I’m on this side of His grace.

I know a movie choice isn’t life altering but if she is able to learn about His grace and forgiveness now, it will forever change her steps. That is my prayer for her and for all of my children.

Thank you God for making me their Mom.

Thank you for your wisdom when I am at a loss.

Thank you for using my failures and making them your victories.

Live: Withdrawing from public school to Homeschool in SC (vblog)

Today’s conversation is an extension of my conversation with Susan M. just last week. Susan is a Mom that was considering homeschooling this late in the year. After our conversation she realized that she can do it and will do so as it will be best for her daughter.

As always your questions always provide pertinent conversation for the UCHU YouTube channel.

If you’ve not subscribed yet or gone to YouTube and given your thumbs up…..THEN DO SO NOW. 🙂

Since so many are this late in the schooling year they want to know a few things:
1. Is it to late to withdraw from public school to public school?

2. What is the process for withdrawing students from public school?

3. How to count the 180 days of required homeschooling until Option 3 laws.

(Share this post with a friend or on your social media resource. You just never know who may be considering homeschooling and desire to do so NOW.)

UCHU students – California Achievement Test (CAT) 2017

I wear many hats…(although that’s about to change abruptly soon.)

This weekend I’ve been spending time giving support to homeschooling Moms and Dads offering California Achievement Testing (CAT) for UCHU students and a few other students in two other rooms on our testing site.

I love what I do!

If you wanted to have your children tested just for your knowledge….catch us next season.

While providing standardized testing is not required under Option 3 in South Carolina many families still like to have their children tested. Tested just so they can be aware of where their students are in their schooling journey academically.

More details coming in July/August 2017 for beginning of the homeschooling year testing the end of August 2017.

LIVE YOUTUBE: Homeschooled: But don’t know how to ‘adult.’

There is a new terminology out there called ‘adulting.’

Who knew that ‘adult’ was a verb or could be used as a verb?

Anyhoo….

How many homeschooled children do you know (may your own – Ha!) that aren’t ready to enter into adulthood?

From day to day and from year to year…..we are busy and focused on academics for our students. Sometimes this focus also brings failure to focus on life skills and basic things that will otherwise prepare our students for life.

Our conversation today covers some important things you will want to make sure you cover over the course of your homeschooling that will get your students ready for entering into ‘adulting.’

The list within the video is by no means exhaustive…..so share your thoughts and additions to the list.
