    You know those fuzzy little creatures we all love and that give us love back! Yep, dogs and cats. Let's call them "traditional" pets! Not everyone can have them due to where they live, allergy restrictions or any number of things!
    Think you can't have a pet? Think again!

    Not only are pets great for kids, but you can use them as part of your homeschool. Homeschool mascot, learning pet care, studying their habitat or life cycle is science plus reading about them, figuring out the supplies you need, space, etc. all adds up to a full homeschool day! And you can expand from there! You also might be surprised that no matter where you live - - from apartment to farm - - you can become an official certified wildlife habitat. That's a homeschool project begging to happen, isn't it?!

    Whether you live in a small apartment that doesn't allow pets, a small house with no space, have a postage stamp size backyard, kids or parents are allergic or even have sensory issues that don't allow for pets per se, you can still create a great animal habitat for either non-traditional pets or wildlife.

    I've said it forever. Secular homeschoolers are THOUGHT-ful people. Yes, we can be empathetic, but what I really mean is that we tend to ponder deeply on subjects that interest us. And what's even cooler is that when one of our tribe is at a crossroads and asks for advice, we offer it. Well-thought-out, built-from-personal-experience kind of advice...the best of all kinds!

    Recently, on our Facebook page, one of our followers asked the following;

    I have one son who won't tolerate ANY kind of reading instruction and he's almost 8. I've been super patient, and understand that different kids read at different ages, but I'm starting to panic a bit. He asks to be read to, so I know he enjoys books, but he simply doesn't want to learn to read on his own. Is this a real issue for some kids, or just a power struggle? HELP!
    And she was lucky enough to receive over 70 replies from our members! I've crowdsourced some of my favorites, in case they will be helpful to people here at SHS, too! ...

    Hi! Iím Jackie and Iím fairly new to this community. Iíve only started my true homeschooling journey with my oldest child this year. My husband is active duty Air Force. Our children are ages 5, 3, and 1.

    Our main goal as a family is to stay together as much as possible despite the military. While sometimes it's impossible to join my husband, there are other times we have been able to follow along. Itís been worth the long car trips, plane trips, and the (lack of) money to have more time together as a family. Weíve been able to experience as a family many places including Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Montgomery, and Wichita Falls. Joining him when possible ...
