      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)

Friday Freebie: Win a Copy of A Parent to Parent Chat on ADHDAussieHomeschool


Theresa Lode and I have been online friends for about five years. Not only is Theresa a fellow homeschooling ‘mom’ to three, she is witty and ridiculously funny. But wait, there’s more! She is also a writer, amongst many other things. And she has written a book or two on parenting the ADHD child.

But wait, there’s even more!

Theresa is also incredibly generous. And she has given us a copy of her 26 page ebook to give away to our readers.

Theresa shares a little of their own personal journey as well as gives some down to earth and practical tips that she has learned along the way. This book is not for those wanting an official report on ADD or ADHD. Rather it is for the parent who wants to understand the condition a little more and gain real life ways to help the family flourish.

Theresa is a home educating mother but her ebook will not heap condemnation upon you if you don’t homeschool. Theresa writes in her humorous, bright and sparky way that will give you a chuckle as well as give you information and creative ideas.

Whether you suspect you have a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, or you have an official diagnosis it goes without saying that you’re exhausted. True, parenting in and of itself is hard work. Throw in a kid with ADHD or some similar issues and a parent can explore new realms of exhaustion not understood by other parents.

It’s one of life’s inequities that this exhausted ‘mom’/dad has even more parental responsibilities. Researching ADHD and learning how to deal with it is a field that has kept experts on their toes and extremely busy. So what’s a tired parent supposed to do?

That’s where this e-Book steps in. Theresa has done a lot of reading on ADHD and its cousins. And she has talked to a lot of parents and experts in the field. As a freelance writer, she’s written a fair amount on the subject.

Theresa wants to pass on to you, a distillation of the things she’s learned from parenting her son. By no means is it comprehensive; she purposely keep things general. She considers part of her job is to help you figure out the questions you need to ask because knowing the right questions to ask is the first step in gaining control. Consider this e-Book a friendly cup of coffee with another ‘mom’ who’ll share some of their experiences.

At the end of this e-Book, there’s a list of books she recommends that will cover specific subjects in detail.

Theresa Lode has been married to her best friend, Jay, for the past 18 years. Prior to parenthood, she was a teacher, a nurse, and a parenting expert. Since the arrival of their three children she is no longer a parenting expert and drinks way too much coffee.
