Set Them Up for Success

One of my visions for my children is that they would live a life with purpose and meaning. I envision them living a full life. For me, to live a full life means being anchored on God and living out God's Will. That to me is what success really means.
In order to fulfill this vision, I believe that I need to be an intentional parent to them. That is why my husband and I decided to homeschool our kids. We believe that by homeschooling them, we can be more involved, not just in educating them but more importantly, in molding their character and values.
This decision has been a wonderful source of blessing to us. In the short span of time that we had been homeschooling our kids (which is around 4 years), we had been reaping the rewards of our decision. Among them is that they love to go to Church to hear Mass, they are prayerful, they are leaning a lot about the Bible and the heroes of our faith and they enjoy learning.
If you are interested to learn more about homeschooling and how you can set your children up for success even while they are young, this upcoming event might be of interest to you. TMA Homeschool, in cooperation with Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket organized a Parents Conference for 2015, entitled Set Them Up For Success. It will be held on March 12 at the Bayanihan Arts and Events Center from 9 AM to 5 PM. Registration will start at 8 AM.
This event seeks to enlighten and inspire parents  to raise their children to become happy, responsible, productive  adults and leaders “wherever they are planted”.  

Keynote speakers for the event are Edric Mendoza and Jayson Lo. Mr. Mendoza is a homeschooling father of five, the president of the Homeschoolers Association of the Philippine Islands and lead anchor of ANC’s On the Money. Mr. Jayson Lo is a known inspirational speaker in the country and is the author of Younique:Understanding Others by Understanding You, a book about how personality styles help identify one's strengths and weaknesses.
On top of the keynote talks, the conference will also feature workshops on character education, multi-level homeschooling, homeschooling through high school, adjusting teaching strategies for effecting learning, and celebrating dads who homeschool. Participants may also opt to attend a Question and Answer forum where TMA Homeschool will answer questions about homeschooling in the Philippines. Speakers for these sessions are seasoned homeschoolers Donna Simpao, Millona Barraca, Bles de Guzman, Joy Mendoza, and Dennis Sy. Participants may choose one track for each talk happening simultaneously. Participants can expect a day filled with doses of homeschool inspiration and information about parenting and homeschooling from these speakers.
