How to Pick a Counselor

A counselor can do great harm as well as great good. Do not go down the tubes with the pervasive idea that as long as you are talking and paying, it is all good, because they have no more responsibility than to sit in the chair while you talk. Further, don’t let the pervasive subtle hints of the philosophy that you also have no responsibility, that you shouldn’t be hard on yourself, and that “musts” and “shoulds” are unacceptable. These ideas have no basis in science, but are slopping beyond Clinical Psychology into the church. Here are my thoughts on how to improve the situation if you think getting a counselor might be helpful.

Texas Home School Coalition Endorsements for Nov. 4 Election — Texas only

Hi Sharon,

November 3rd’s election results will have a drastic impact on Texas homeschoolers. These candidates need us more than ever.

Homeschool families like yours have often made the difference in critical races that were decided by a handful of votes.

Below are the candidates that THSC has endorsed. They need our votes AND our volunteer help.

Contacting voters is the number one way to get votes on Election Day. To help a specific candidate, click on their name to be redirected to their campaign for more information on how you can help.

Homeschoolers have protected family values for more than 30 years. You can help ensure that Texas is a state where families are free to raise and educate their children as they see fit.

Thank you for assisting us in Keeping Texas Families Free!

Sincerely,

Tim Lambert, THSC President
