Do you worry about your homeschooling? Are your homeschool students really going to be read for life?

Real Confidence comes about in two basic ways:

  1. You can be confident because you have been there and done it (or are well equipped by those who have succeeded).
  2. You can dump the future and live in the moment using solid principles. The smart path is to quit trying to generate a confident feeling OR worrying about an uncertain future. Instead, live today based on solid principles. Ask yourself if you are building the right skills into your student TODAY?

You can only be confident about the moment, which is all you have to work with anyway. True?


Dr. Fred Ray LybrandP.S. Start listing and using the principles you believe will guide you well. We started with, “Teach the children to teach themselves.”


Dr. Lybrand and his wife (Jody) of 40 years homeschooled their 5 children from birth to college, where they all excelled in academics and community (University of Texas & Abilene Christian). Dr. & Mrs. Lybrand have combined degrees of 2 BA's, 2 Masters, and 1 Doctorate), Fred and Jody have stuck with their faith and their obsession with practical learning. As a result, the overall theme of "Teaching Them to Learn How to Learn" invades everything they offer. Dr. Lybrand pastored for 25 years and currently coaches, consults, and trains leaders in businesses, churches, and non-profits. Among his client list are the U.S. Air Force, CRU, Be Broken, Continental Resources, State Farm Insurance, and Pioneer Natural Resources. Of course, one of his favorite interests is helping homeschoolers excel, and he does so with the 10 Courses of The Independent Homeschooer Curriculum & directly mentoring parents who belong to the tribe.
