One of my favorite things to do for encouragement is to attend homeschooling conferences and one of my favorite’s is the Great Homeschool Conventions!

In today’s world many families are looking to home educate for a variety of reasons. Attending a GHC conference is a great way to encourage, equip and educate your family in all seasons of your homeschooling journey.
Why do I like GHC?
Dozens of speakers covering more than 230 speaking sessions are offered for each event! The variety of topics covered is incredible, from how to different ages at the same time to how to homeschool a gifted or special needs child.
Great Homeschool Conventions has some fun events happening. Check out Rabbit Room on the Road! Christian authors, Andrew Peterson and associates are hosting a panel get-together for a fun and interactive discussion of the love of writing and how to integrate that into your children’s everyday education.
Special Track Sessions Focused on Homeschooling Trouble Spots
Specially-focused tracks presented by true experts in their fields will address homeschooling trouble spots. Homeschooling isn’t easy. Parenting can be harder. Behavioral issues in the home, strong-willed children, and disrespect for parental guidance can make homeschooling a terrible experience for both parents and children to the point of giving up. Great encouragement and parenting tips can be found by attending their Parenting Track.
Special needs topics are addressed in the Special Needs / Gifted Track. How do you teach a child effectively with ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s, or Dyslexia? Find answers by attending this awesome track which will leave you uplifted and with a new appreciation for your child’s challenge.
Shopping their huge exhibit hall gives you the opportunity to seek and find curriculum that best fits your children’s learning styles. Meet many of the authors of popular curricula and engage in conversation to find out how their curriculum can help you reach your child’s full potential. I also love a chance to get a hands-on look at homeschooling resources. LOTS of exhibitors have already signed up!
Anyway, I hope you get a chance to attend one of these conferences near you, I think you’ll find them encouraging to your homeschooling journey!
