Bravo to the Relief Team!
Some authors in homeschooling circles recently suggested the idea that the portrait of homeschooling families is changing, and therefore the needs are changing also. Among other things, they were saying that in light of new technologies and the fact that we now have second and third generation homeschoolers in certain cases, the need to attend an annual conference seems to have abated. These comments recently issued on the Web made certain homeschool veterans react, and I am happy to note that we observe elsewhere what I experienced once again this year during the conferences that I had the privilege to attend: “The dawn meets twilight”, and that is a good thing!

How do you Focus on What Matters Most?
As we are finalizing our Provincial Forms and Guides to simplify reporting and notifying for you, the most amazing part for me is to see how these potential restrictions are being embraced by you as powerful tools to focus your families on what matters most. As I have taken this conversation back into my own family, we have explored, “Why do we homeschool?” and “How does homeschooling benefit us?” In this, I gained a new appreciation, desire and passion to forge ahead through those times of uncertainty and discouragement as I was reminded why it matters to my wife and children. Here in the Wyler family, we are passionate about connecting both ourselves and others to the truth. Homeschooling has been an amazing tool to help us do that. One of the questions that has come up during this conversation has been “If we embrace these requirements as a good thing, will that open us up to more regulations? Shouldn’t we stand up against them?” Here is what I have witnessed as families and homeschoolers have embraced reporting and notifying as tools, not restrictions.

What's the Right Information to Track in your Homeschooling Adventure?
It has been truly amazing to understand and support you in this, as we move to simplify this process for you. We want to ensure that you are empowered to meet all your legal requirements, on time and in a way that actually gives you more freedom. In my first post, we explored how reporting and notifying acts as a powerful tool to re-focus and re-align you and your family with why you homeschool. Our team here at HSLDA has been committed for the past 23 years to ensuring that you have up-to-date information on the provincial homeschooling regulations that affect you. We want to make abiding by legal requirements as simple as possible for you to save you time and empower you and your family in your homeschooling.
