BROWARD HOMESCHOOL PSG Meetings
2nd Tuesday of each month
Next Meeting: March 11, 2014
"Letting Your Children Fulfill Their Calling"
How do we know we are doing all we could be doing to give our children what they need? How do we deal with guilt and anxiety and feelings of inadequacy when we think about our children and their abilities and futures? These are issues we all face in the process of homeschooling our children. But God's plan for their lives is already in place: our job and our privilege as homeschoolers is to discern this and fall into step with His will.
Homeschool Mom and PSG board member Margo Rees will encourage us in learning to see our children the way God sees them.

BROWARD HOMESCHOOL PARENT SUPPORT GROUP
Broward Enrichment Homeschool ClassesBEHCAnd whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire. William Butler YatesIn our ongoing effort to provide the greatest opportunities to the homeschooling community, PSG is proud to announce that we will be enrolling students for our second year of Home Education Enrichment Day for Middle School and High School students! Broward Enrichment Homeschool Classes (BEHC) is modeled after other enrichment programs like HEED and CEDAR. During the 2013/2014 school year, BEHC will be offering weekly classes and assistance from master teachers in a variety of subjects.Do you feel like you're led by God to homeschool your children, but you feel like you're not equipped to teach at the high school level or you feel like you're lacking in a specific subject area? Then BEHC is the solution! Our goal is to provide quality Christian classes to help assist parents in the education of their children. BEHC is not a school, and its classes are not intended to fully replace parent education. BEHC is here to help give you an extra boost and the assurance that you're on the right educational track. BEHC strives to help parents in the home education of their own children by locating and providing quality independent instructors to assist them. BEHC teachers are facilitators, instructing the student every week in class, while the parent oversees and guides their student through the rest of the school week. You don't have to plan out the lessons, but you do have to follow through and teach your child during the rest of the week. You are still your child's primary teacher! Course plan, syllabus, access to master teachers for questions and assistance with materials will all be provided to you. Class sizes will remain small, with an average of 12 students per class. Classes will be held every Wednesday at Victory Life Church (located at 155 NW 112 Ave., Plantation, FL 33325), the same church where the monthly PSG meetings are currently being held.
