Train Dad is all about Home Education & Parenting. It is being a parent and an educator (to our own kids) at the same time. It is about learning without borders because we believe that the world is our classroom. We have the freedom what we choose to teach and learn.

Homeschooling is a lifestyle. It is not for everyone. Those are seeing the positive outcomes of home education from others may not have the time to spend with their own kids. They end up bringing their kids to a traditional school and learn the same topics together with his or her classmates.

And yes, Socialization. Homeschoolers are being criticized for the lack of it. In contrast, we see homeschoolers as more friendly, outgoing and a team-player compared to most kids in the traditional school. Actually, it is not really a battle of traditional school vs homeschool. Having a smart, God-loving and friendly kids can be a result of intentional parenting. Take note – intentional parenting. Those parents who have the intention to teach their children the most important things in life will see their child blossom into an asset of the society.

SELF-CONFIDENCE & INDEPENDENCE I taught him an important life lesson yesterday. After his piano recital, we decided to go to SM for our lunch. He insisted he wants KFC but Lisa, Jim and me wanted CK. We told him to eat at KFC or be forced to eat at CK. At first he was scared but took the challenge. We gave him 100, ordered his food, dine inside and returned back to CK. Of course…
