"haha Funny you should say that because I literally shudder at the thought of how it used to be when all my kids were going to regular school. Awful! My 7yo is actually still attending a Christian private school... but being in the province, the…"
"That's great to know, I often see people comment on how difficult it is to motivate or "control" their teenagers... & what a blessing to have such a good example for the rest of your sons.
I've noticed that my girls work well…"
"Hi Riva! My oldest went to PS through 5th grade then we pulled him out when son number two was starting K. The other 4 have always been home schooled.
We haven't had any teenage troubles here. Everyone keeps telling me I'm heading for…"
I just joined THL and think this may be the 3rd time I've introduced myself on here haha I was so excited that I ran off to join a group before saying hello to everyone in general.Anyway, I'm talkative, super friendly, and homeschool 3 kids.I have a 13yo, 9yo, and 7yo, all daughters. We are a mixed family (British/Filipino and American stepdad) living in the Philippines... I welcome conversations, questions, enjoy helping out or motivating where I can, so don't hesitate to say hi. :)See More
I am 33 years old, am British/Filipino by Nationality but American by schooling... it's all mixed up and confusing- or I should say, I'M mixed up and confused. ;)
I am a full time homeschooling mommy, but I am also the executive director of an NGO that focuses on environment, health, and indigenous peoples.
I have 3 daughters aged 13, 9, and 7.
I homeschool my 13 and 9 year old... my 7 year old will begin homeschooling after her school year ends this March.
Their stepdaddy is 24 years old and American... yup, almost 9 years younger than me. :)
He gave me the support and encouragement I needed to be able to choose homeschooling for my children.
We live on a beach in our small, family-owned resort in the Philippines... we live far from the city, which is both fortunate and unfortunate. Nothing has changed much since the 80's in this small province town we live in... that is also both fortunate and unfortunate. haha!
What: We are a Christian family that use the A.C.E. curriculum. We are enrolled at School Of Tomorrow, Philippines for accreditation.
I homeschool because the quality of education in the province we live in is extremely poor.
Scariest decision I ever made, but also the very best thing I have ever done.
I'm here because:
Well, same reason everybody else is here but also because it is difficult for me to find anybody I can relate with in person. Most people around me are completely different in culture, language, and life experiences.
One set of friends have never traveled much beyond this province much less the country, whereas I have lived in many different countries and have done a lot of traveling.
On the other spectrum, I have a lot of friends from the modeling/entertainment industry who, even if not single, spend a lot of time partying and pursuing shallow interests such as fashion, beauty, makeup, spas, etc. Which is fine but this is pretty much ALL they care about.
So, SIGH. I am kind of smack dab not in the middle of any of this. haha!
My interests are art, photography, anthropology, psychology, the environment, stuff like that... while I do have friends with these similar interests, they all live in other countries.
In any case, I just want a place to be able to talk about anything and everything homeschooling or whatever it is, once in a while. :)
