Home Schooling: A Stable Home Environment
Throughout your children's lives, you'll spend countless hours helping them learn. Whether it's tying shoes, telling time, shooting a free throw, or mastering multiplication tables, your children will be learning at a fast pace, and they'll need your help
Resistant to deterioration or displacement
Not likely to break down, fall apart, or give way
Firm, steady, not easily thrown off balance
Constancy of character or purpose
Capable of returning to equilibrium or original position after being shaken or displaced.
Think about your family being like parts of a hanging mobile with you, the parents, being the larger pieces and your children the smaller pieces. When external or internal stresses occur, the pieces move. They are all affected by the shifting motion of the others. Stability is what gives your family the ability to maintain an even keel and return to the balanced position even after a jostling occurs.
How can you tell whether or not your home gives your children a feeling of stability? Over the years, I've noticed three specific situations that tend to rob the home of its stability:
Constant time crunch
Schoolwork anxiety and stress
Family crisis, such as death, divorce, or relocation
Difficult circumstances do come unannounced and uninvited into all of our lives. But what can us as parents do to reestablish stability and support our kids so they can keep growing and learning when something happens to shake the family's security? Let's deal with these stability robbers one at a time.
Do we have time?
Mom hurries in from work with a sack of groceries. Brian screeches by on his bike on his way to a friend's house. Upstairs, Jessica hurriedly dresses for ballet class, skips dowry the stairs three at a time to dash into the kitchen, and asks, "Mom, can you drive me to the dance studio?" At the same time, a tense Dad races home on the highway, knowing he will be home only forty-five minutes before he has to preside at the church's Adult Education committee meeting. Overcrowded lives, stressed parents, hurried children, do you ever have a night like this? We had far too many!
"I feel like I'm on a fast train and can't get off," said one mother. "My life is all bits and pieces."
"I wish we had some time for Dad and me to go camping," ten-year-old Michael confided.
"The only thing I want for Christmas is about two more weeks to get ready for it," lamented a harried mom of twins and a teenager as she came in from hours of running errands.
Most of us are zooming through life in fast-forward. Our kids lead sped-up lives as well. With schools cutting back on recess and lunch time, and extracurricular activities increasing, most of kids' waking hours are now packed with classes, homework, sports, lessons, and much more.
What happens to kids who are constantly rushed and whose days and minds are crammed? First, short-term memory is affected. Lots of stimulation without time to relax is like baking bread without giving it time to rise. When kids have downtime or are resting or sleeping, the brain creates the connections and long-term memory needed in the learning process. If a child's short-term memory is jumbled and rushed, then his mind doesn't build long-term memory patterns.
Too much outside stimulation also diverts and usurps interior energy. It's like trying to watch a DVD on fast-forward.When things go too fast, kids may miss the meaning of what they hear. Their minds become like a bowl of peanuts, just bits and pieces, and they get disorganized. The combination of stress and hurry can rob children of vital reading, writing, and math skills. In order to build a long-term framework of knowledge, there needs to be a time each day when kids are quiet, settled, and reflective.
"A little bit of stress can be motivating, add interest, and keep arousal levels high enough to complete a task," said one researcher. But too much stress and pressure works against the learning process and can affect brain function. "When there is excess stress over the long term, the brain produces a chemical that disrupts working memory and reduces one's desire to explore new ideas and creatively solve problems." Maybe one place to start in promoting your child's learning this year would be to reduce excess hurriedness in your family's life.
Make an effort to give your child some of your time each week, preferably each day, so she can just hang out and play or talk with you. When your attention is focused on her and truly "tuned in" to her needs, it helps reduce her stress and it's a tangible way to express your care. It helps build self-worth, establish communication, and create emotional closeness, and it's the very best way to fill up a young person's "emotional tank." When their emotional needs are met, children's behavior improves and learning increases.
Time together may be having a hamburger out with your child or throwing the football around and talking over the events of the day after school. It can be a walk around the block or stopping for a Coke on the way home from soccer practice. It could be just doing a puzzle or playing a game your child enjoys. Or perhaps the thirty minutes before bedtime is your favorite time to spend together.
After several decades of working with families and kids, Dr. Dale Jordan, a learning specialist and education professor, concluded that "the most important thing you can do for your child's education is to clear your calendar and be there during those formative years." He advised that as often as possible, we should come home in the evening; get relaxed; have a meal together; share the events of the day; and make time for homework, reading, and other shared activities.
It takes some planning to help our kids plan their time between work, play, study, sleep, family time, and other activities so there's balance in their lives. (It's hard enough to do this in our own lives!) When they are overscheduled and running from one activity to another, young people experience burnout just as adults do. Home becomes only a pit stop where clothes are changed and a glass of juice is gulped down on the way out the door. Kids need to have some unstructured time for play, thinking, or rest in the family setting. Downtime gives them chances to explore, use their curiosity, think, daydream, or just be quiet.
Our home was as busy as anyone else's, and we certainly experienced hectic times when two basketball games, a tennis match, theater practice, a big meeting at work, and a friend's birthday party happened to fall on the same day. But if that becomes the norm and your child is showing signs of over commitment, then it's time to intervene. Signs of over commitment include headaches and stomach pain, frequent restlessness and tiredness, appearing depressed but not communicating feelings, losing interest in an activity that once was important, falling grades or decreased interest in schoolwork, antisocial behavior such as lying and stealing, and being more dependent on parents than in the past.
Here are some ideas to try that might help your child cope with stress or over commitment:
Assist your child in evaluating which activities are producing a problem.
If she has too little free time, help her change her schedule to make room for relaxation and play.
Spend time together with your child each day, even if for only fifteen minutes.
Simplify your own schedule. If it is hectic or unmanageable, it can cause your child to be stressed or nervous about her activities.
You might be forced to make some tough decisions. You really want her to have the advantage of both piano lessons and ballet class, but are it worth the time crunch it causes? Your athletic son may want to play soccer, hockey, and basketball, but is there really enough time in a week for all three? Some of your decisions may be unpopular, but you'll be teaching your child how to keep his life manageable, a skill hell thanks you for in the long run.
