Every so often, this map courtesy of the Home School Legal Defense Association makes the rounds among homeschool bloggers. It talks about the degree of regulation that each state puts on its homeschoolers , and our state, Pennsylvania, is always rated among the most heavily regulated. Even homeschoolers elsewhere have heard the horror stories that home learning here is restrictive, hard to do, highly regulated and so on. I love living in Pennsylvania — and I hope I can shine a light on some of the resources that have helped us homeschool without a problem, and while having a great time!
Note: This guide is up-to-date with the October changes to the Pennsylvania homeschool law to the best of my understanding. If I can impress nothing else on you, please know this: The best thing you can do in Pennsylvania is read the homeschool law yourself. Read it over and over. Read it some more. Next month, read it again.

Skip to Content. The movie’s main message is that relationships mean being there for someone else when they’re going through tough times, not just happy times. Ellie teaches Jason about the nature of relationships and convinces him that some people are worth the emotional risk of falling in love. The guys all realize that being in a relationship doesn’t mean they can’t be close friends.

As gaming addiction has officially been recognised by the World Health Organisation as a mental health condition, we ask our experts to provide guidance on what it is and what steps parents can take to protect children from developing the condition. Gaming Disorder is listed in a draft document that remains to be finalised. The problem this creates for parents is that it can confuse healthy enthusiasm and enjoyment with a clinical disorder.
We also need to use these labels carefully so as not to trivialise other mental health issues. That said, it does offer helpful language to identify when children stray from enjoyment and avid gaming into less healthy patterns. The best way to resolve this in most cases is to encourage parents to be present in the gaming world of their children. Addiction can mean something very scary to parents and carers. If the answers are yes, then parents consider whether their fears over digital media use are well-founded.
In other words, parents and carers can tackle the overuse of online games by taking steps to achieve balance in their homes :. A final point for parents to remember is that studies suggest that gaming disorder affects only a small proportion of people engaged in online gaming. While enjoying games is normal, they are designed many by behavioural scientists to be engaging after all.
The problem arises when children and teenagers start to neglect other areas of their lives in order to play video games, or when the only way they can relax is by playing video games, as, over time, a child may start to turn to video games as a way of coping with difficult life issues. Another sign to look out for is if their daily needs like food and sleep are being disrupted, indeed physical symptoms might even arise from spending too much time online such as dry or red eyes, soreness in the fingers, back or neck or complaints of headaches.
Finally, they may appear preoccupied, depressed, or lonely as some games can be quite isolating.
What is ‘gaming addiction’ and how can you prevent children from developing it?

Student Finance normally assesses how much money you are entitled to by looking to the household income of your biological or adoptive parents or your only living parent. This figure is used to determine their capacity to financially support you through your studies, and how much they should contribute to your studies. If you live with another relative who supports you financially, like a grandparent, you would still be expected to ask your biological or adoptive parents to provide their financial information for income assessment.
If you consider yourself estranged from your parents, it may not be possible or safe to ask your parents for their income details. Therefore, Student Finance have allowed exceptions to this practice for independent students, who are awarded full financial support without assessing the income of their parents. You can apply for independent status if your circumstances meet one or more of the following criteria:.
You are eligible to be considered for independence on the basis of being estranged from your parents if you have not had verbal or written contact with both of your biological, adoptive parents or your only living parent for a significant period of time and your estrangement is irreconcilable. If you have supported yourself financially for a total of thirty six months prior to the start of your course, you can apply to be assessed as an independent student on the grounds of self-support.
These months do not have to be consecutive, but you must show you have been earning a sufficient amount to be financially independent. If your parent has a significant mental health problem or health issue that would make it impractical or dangerous for you to contact them, you may also be awarded independent status on these grounds. Student Finance England, Wales and Northern Ireland require supporting statements from trusted independent parties as evidence to confirm your position.
They ask for independent verification of your position to prevent students who do have a supportive family from fraudulently claiming more money than they are entitled. There are more details of who you might ask to provide supporting statements later in this guide. If you are applying for independent status on the grounds that you are irreconcilably estranged from parents, you may be expected to supply statements for each year that you apply for support from Student Finance England or Wales.

From 1 June, the Government is asking primary schools in England to welcome back children in Nursery, Reception, year 1 and year 6, alongside children of key workers and vulnerable pupils. Special schools are working towards a phased return without a focus on specific year groups. We know it might be challenging for autistic children to go back to school after a break of over ten weeks. Lots of autistic children and young people find unexpected change hard, and prefer familiar routines.
They may feel anxious and distressed at the prospect of returning to the social and sensory world of school and also have fears about the coronavirus. Anxiety can be linked to the unknown. If possible, request a visit to school before it officially reopens. That way, your child can familiarise themselves with their environment again, see their teacher and get used to the layout of the school again. They may feel reassured to know that some things have not changed.
