I’m hanging out on Social Networks, just like you! Just “Like” A2Z Homeschooling on Facebook or read posts below. What’s on your mind? Post your question, and I’ll get back very fast! Or join our Facebook Group for discussion about your homeschool life, and to share your joys and concerns.
What should I do if someone whose books I have promoted to homeschoolers for years came out on Facebook and, in no uncertain terms, said she did not want to do business with married lesbians who were homeschooling? Should I take down the links? Should I add to the description something like "No lesbian customers welcomed to order," or just leave the links with a neutral description for those who may really need her product? I'm not sure she knew I was "listening" or she had forgotten I was on her "friends" list. How can I be cool about this when I'm feeling rather "hot under the collar" at the moment. I do try to remain religiously and politically neutral on my site. But generally I often don't know if someone is likely to be extremely rude to a someone I send to them.Read More...
The main event occurs on June 30th. On that night, Venus and Jupiter will be a jaw-dropping 1/3rd of a degree apart. That's less than the diameter of a full Moon. You'll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger.
Venus and Jupiter are converging for a must-see cl...Read More...
Often kids will feel more reassured if they are part of the plan than if you tell them not to worry about it.
There are also modern ways to let everyone know who is safe and who is not, and what they need.
Consider getting everyone a Twitter account who is old enough to handle one. Create an agreed upon hashtag so family members and good friends can relay messages without having to remember a lot of @s.
Instead of worrying about collecting up and hauling around important papers, scan them, and put both on a CD and somewhere in "the Cloud." You can even just email them to yourself where they will stay on the server where you can collect them later. Ditto with family photographs.
You could create an "album" here with a photo of each family member and each pet. Any go missing, the photos could be used to help find them.
I use this site to listen to dispatches in my county. Navigate around to find yours. Often the one with the most listeners has the most activity. I don't do this very often, but when a fire is too close to someone I love, I check here. There isn't always someone talking on these. http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/225

But this was neither a scene from a movie nor was it the past. A white man had just entered a black church and massacred people as they prayed. He had assassinated a civil rights leader. This was not a page in a textbook I was reading nor an inscription on a monument I was visiting.
This was now.
This was real.
This was—this is—still happening.
Talk to your children about this! Please!
