      AussieHomeschool Closing Down   11/14/2019

      All good things must come to an end and AussieHomeschool is no different. It is with much sadness yet even more necessity that this must be so.   As of Sunday evening, 17/11/2019 the Discussion Forums will close. The Classifieds, for now although not indeterminate, will continue as is.       Why is this happening now? In all honesty, it probably should have happened many years ago but I created this forum, which originally a homeschool classifieds forum for Aussies, about 20 years or so ago. I, along with others for whom I am gratefully indebted to, have spent many, many hours sweating, laughing, praying, crying, writing, apologising, pleading and speaking about this wonderful place. In this day and age of Social Media, along with our ages and therefore differernt stages of life, it is simply not viable in any way for it to continue. You may think differently and that's okay - you honestly have to have lived through some of the dramas and learning opportunities that we all have to truly appreciate why we have the standards that we do - they were borne out of necessity and not undertaken lightly. Much blood, sweat and tears have been spilt over this place. Even more friendships, learning, debate, love, prayer and great times have been had becuase of AussieHomeschool. No one could ever be more thankful for it than I.

      I understand you may feel frustration or even anger and for that I apologise, I feel you. But now it is YOUR time to go out and spread the word of home education and its benefits. Share YOUR story, tell those you know and don't know about homeschooling and what is has done for your family.   On behalf of John (my long suffering and patient husband), myself and the ENTIRE moderating team over the many years - I THANK YOU and WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS.   God Bless, Susan (HomeGrownKids /  AussieHomeschool)

The 10 Commandments for Posting

Our guidelines are based on what "Love is" according to 1Corinthians 13

1 - Be patient with others...

for sometimes the written word is hard to understand at first reading.

Remember that most people are not trying to hurt anyone's feelings when they post here.

2 - Be kind to each other...

for we all need another friend. You don't have to agree with everyone, but remember to keep it discussions and not arguments.

3 - Do not be boastful or proud...

when posting on the boards re-read everything that you write. Make sure that it is coming across in the best possible way.

4 - Do not be rude or self-seeking...

there is no need for puffing yourself up or putting others down. We will allow no crude, vulgar, racist, sexually explicit or graphic language of any kind, or any personal attacks. All such posts will be deleted immediately.

5 - Do not be easily angered or keep a record of wrongs...

remain calm and forget offenses. If there is a problem that can't be worked out privately please do not post it on the boards. You may send a PM to a moderator or site administrator.

6 - Do not delight in evil, but rejoice in the truth...

don't be happy when bad befalls another person, but look for good in all things. Remember that we are all here for support and ministry.

7 - Protect each other...

this is a place where we should not fear to come. It should be a place where we can find solace, inspiration, and a place for learning more about the love of God. If you see a post that is contrary to the Word of God before we see it, please let us know. Let's protect each other in a way that we are all looking out for each other spiritually.

8 - Trust each other...

try not to take things personally. While reading posts that were intended for you or for others, remember that everyone is trying their hardest to come across the "right way". If something has two inferences, take the nicest one and assume that was how the other person meant it.

9 - Hope for the best for each other...

in your words that you leave for others to read. Remember that this is not a private arena. Others will read your messages and we want this place to be one where anyone would enjoy coming. Please help us present this image with what you leave behind.

10 - Persevere in love and don't let it fail...

if you constantly love the other person, in everything you say or do, then everything else will take care of itself.

Let's enjoy the time we have online embraced in God's love and grace.
