Hate towards a Child

My son was trying to be helpful. His helpfulness cause this man to display hate. I stop my children homeschooling and moved them to their room immediately.

The day I face racism and hate inside my own home. I was shocked, scared and confused. I found myself apologizing to the person because I couldn’t believe what I have seen and heard. The maintenance man entered my home and my 6 year old son tapped him on his back to show him where the water was seeping through the floor. As I stared around the corner. I seen the man look at my son with a hate filled facial expression as if he was disgusted and told my son to “leave him alone.” I apologized to the man and he said “its okay, I don’t want him touching me.” I went on to apologize more than once.

   Everytime the man entered the room they were in I moved them to another room. I felt shattered and got on the phone with someone and explain what was going on. I tried to stop the tears from flowing down my face but I couldn’t because my son is a child who is taught to love everyone. I could no longer look towards this man.

A day prior to the incident, my son, daughter and I read from a book of virtues and held a conversation afterwards. The conversation was about love and how we all have flesh under our skin. Our skin is just a covering to protect our flesh. Everyone has organs and bleed the same color blood. Our tears is clear and it represents pain, loneliness and sometimes happiness. I also told them to always pray for people who display hate and help those who are in need. I love everyone and teach my children to do the same but what happens when an innocent child is exposed to hate by an adult.

   My son didn’t understand what was going on as far as why the maintenance man did and said what he said but I  got him away from him. He still didn’t care about being around the man because of his innocence. He is taught love but this world is filled with hate. 

   I realize in the end my apologies wasn’t really to the man but towards his action and word. It was because I felt sorry for him and the judgement he will face with God. As a Christian I will continue to love and pray for people and things I don’t understand. 

   I’m an introvert but if you ever see me in public, just know I love you even though I don’t know you and I teach my children the same. If I could change the world I would create love and respect among mankind. I would erase how people treat people based on culture, color, gender, size, disability, wealth and poverty. It’s the heart and ones action that will be judged in the end. 

  We must raise our children to love all so things like what happened to my 6 year old son and many more out there won’t continue. Parents it all begins with you. If you teach your child to hate certain people they will. Rich should love the poor and vice versa. One color should love and embrace all color. Look around you. If this world was one color it would be boring. If the sky isn’t blue and the grass green it would be boring!

   At the end of the day I was proud of my children. They prayed for GOD to change this maintenance man’s heart so he could be a better person. I am happy I homeschool because I am able to train up my child towards the right direction. I am able to keep them away from people who display hate and bullying. Which are unGODLY principles. I am able to see and experience things that I probably would miss if they were in public school.


   I want to say thank you to my previous maintenance man Charlie from my old place for being nice to my children and always greeted them back with a smile. Its people like you and many more I have met who give me hope in this hateful world. I will continue teaching my children about  love. The same love God ask for us to display to our neighbors.

1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 

John 15:12: “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” 1 

Corinthians 13:13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

The day I learned Cursive

Hi, my name is Heaven. I’m seven years old. I’m homeschooled in 3rd grade. I wanted to share with you how I learned to write cursive. It started when I was in kindergarten. I was not fully homeschool then. I had a name tag on my desk and my teacher wrote my name in cursive. I copied it and I went home. I had homework to do so I did my homework and wrote my name in cursive. My mom was next to me to help me do my work and to remind me to write my name. She was shock and happy when she saw me write cursive and said, “How?” My mom was proud of me. So she taught me how to write cursive the right way. I am getting better every day.

One day when I get older I can help kids learn how to write cursive. I’m very happy to share my story with you. See you next time!

Homemade Dinosaur fossils

By: Wislaine

So we are currently completing lessons about dinosaurs and the Bible. We are using schoolhouse teachers for our lessons. The children loves the videos provided for each lesson. As an adult I will say how informative each lessons are. A quiz is provided after every lesson. I provided a link below to check out schoolhouse teachers.

I wanted to do something fun with Heaven and Immense so I decided to have them make their own dinosaur fossils. It made sense since we are currently going over dinosaurs. The best part of this activity was watching them glow with excitement like always while shaping their Crayola air-dry clay. Not to much was needed for this activity.

What we used to make our fossils:

Rolling pin

Crayola air dry clay

Water ( to smooth out cracks)

Toy fossil dinosaurs

Paint if desired

Modge podge if desired

Homeschooling with Love

1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

Romans 13:8: “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

1 Corinthians 16:14: “Do everything in love.”

By: Wislaine

  An important lesson I teach my children is love. They know love has no face, price, color, size, and status. Love is for all color, size, disability, culture and for everyone under God.  Love always win in any given situation. There’s no hurt in love. God said we must Love. Our children are watching us. If we display hate for one another’s color, culture, size, status then our children will continue what we have started which will be an on going dilemma.

  Homeschooling is the time to allow our children to embrace everyone. It doesn’t matter what background they come from. As a Christian I don’t think that I am Superior to anyone because one thing I know for sure is that love can eliminate hate.  I’ve never seen hate create love. I’ve seen hate create hatred, jealousy, killing, and judging without even knowing someone. It’s my duty to train my children in the direction that I want them to go and that direction is towards love.

  Now, don’t get me wrong we can dislike someone’s character, attitude and action but let’s not hate them. let’s pray for them and hope they could become better. Help them if they need help because with love all is possible. We must show our children what acts of kindness are by displaying it with total strangers (poor, elder, emotional distress and more). Let us walk this world color blind and let love lead the way.

I love you guys! 🙂

Florida Interscholastic Sports for Homeschool

In Florida, homeschoolers have the opportunity to participate in interscholastic sports programs offered by local public and private schools through the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). The FHSAA has established guidelines and eligibility requirements for homeschoolers to join school-based sports teams. Here’s an overview of the process:

  1. Eligibility: Homeschoolers must meet specific eligibility criteria to participate in interscholastic sports. Requirements may include being registered as a homeschool student, meeting academic standards, and complying with FHSAA guidelines. Eligibility criteria can vary by sport and school district, so it’s important to contact the school or district athletic department for detailed information.
  2. Registration and Notification: Homeschoolers need to register with the local public or private school where they wish to participate in sports. Parents or guardians typically need to provide documentation to verify homeschooling status, such as a letter of intent to homeschool or a notice of establishment of a homeschool program. The specific registration process and required documents may vary by school or district.
  3. Tryouts and Team Placement: Once registered, homeschoolers may participate in tryouts and evaluations to determine team placement. The selection process is typically the same as for traditionally schooled students. The school or district athletic department can provide information about tryout schedules and requirements.
  4. Compliance with School Policies: Homeschoolers who participate in interscholastic sports are expected to comply with the school’s policies and procedures, including attendance, behavior, and academic standards. It’s essential to understand and adhere to the school’s expectations to maintain eligibility and a positive sports experience.

It’s important to note that while homeschoolers can participate in interscholastic sports programs, availability and specific policies may vary by school district and individual schools. It’s recommended to contact the athletic departments of local schools or the FHSAA for detailed information on eligibility, registration procedures, and any additional requirements.

Additionally, homeschoolers in Florida can also explore other sports opportunities through local community sports programs, homeschool sports associations, and private sports clubs that offer sports training and competitive opportunities for homeschool athletes.

Worst Homeschool States

When discussing the “worst” homeschool state, it’s essential to approach the topic with sensitivity, as homeschooling laws and regulations can vary across different states. However, some states may have stricter regulations or fewer resources available for homeschooling families. It’s important to note that these factors alone do not necessarily make a state the “worst” for homeschooling, as individual preferences and circumstances play a significant role. Nonetheless, here are a few states that some homeschooling families may find more challenging:

Homeschooling parents are required to submit individualized homeschooling plans and maintain detailed records. Standardized testing is mandatory, and there are specific qualifications for homeschooling instructors.

It’s important to emphasize that these states may still provide opportunities for successful homeschooling. Families in these states may find it beneficial to connect with local homeschooling communities, support groups, and organizations to navigate the homeschooling process effectively. Additionally, it’s crucial to stay updated on any changes in homeschooling laws and regulations in each respective state.

Best Homeschool State

The concept of the “best” homeschool state can vary depending on individual preferences and needs.

Homeschooling Kingdom Children

Homeschooling can be a good option for families who want to provide their children with a customized education that aligns with their values and beliefs. This can be particularly relevant for families who want to raise their children with a focus on their faith or religious beliefs.

For kingdom children, homeschooling can provide a way for parents to incorporate biblical teachings and values into their children’s education. By homeschooling, parents can have greater control over the content of their children’s curriculum and ensure that it reflects their religious beliefs and values.

Homeschooling can also provide a more flexible schedule, which can be beneficial for families who want to incorporate regular prayer and worship into their daily routine. Additionally, homeschooling can offer a more personalized and individualized learning experience, which can help children to develop a deeper understanding of their faith and build a stronger relationship with God.

However, it is important to note that homeschooling may not be the best option for every family. Homeschooling requires a significant investment of time and resources, and parents must be prepared to take on the responsibility of educating their children. Additionally, homeschooling can limit children’s opportunities to socialize with peers and participate in extracurricular activities, which can be important for their social and emotional development.

Ultimately, the decision to homeschool kingdom children will depend on each family’s unique circumstances and values. Parents should carefully consider their options and weigh the pros and cons of homeschooling before making a decision.

What’s the difference between Unschooling vs Homeschool?

Homeschooling is a form of education in which parents take full responsibility for teaching their children at home. Parents choose the curriculum and teaching materials, set the schedule, and monitor their children’s progress. Homeschooling may be structured or unstructured, and parents may choose to follow a particular method of teaching, such as Montessori or Waldorf.

Unschooling and homeschooling are both alternative education methods that allow parents to educate their children outside of traditional school settings. While there are some similarities between the two, there are also key differences that set them apart.

Unschooling, on the other hand, is a philosophy of education that emphasizes self-directed learning and life experiences over traditional academic subjects. In unschooling, children are encouraged to pursue their interests and passions and learn through exploration and experimentation. Unschooling parents do not typically follow a structured curriculum or set schedules, and they do not typically give tests or grades.

One way to think of the difference between unschooling and homeschooling is that homeschooling is a method of education, while unschooling is a philosophy of education. Homeschooling can be structured or unstructured, and parents may choose to use a particular method or curriculum. Unschooling, on the other hand, is more focused on allowing children to learn naturally and organically, without the constraints of a structured curriculum or schedule.

Both unschooling and homeschooling can be effective forms of education, and the choice between them will depend on the needs and preferences of the individual family. Some families may prefer the structure and accountability of homeschooling, while others may prefer the freedom and creativity of unschooling. Ultimately, the most important factor in choosing an educational approach is finding one that allows children to learn and grow in the way that works best for them.
