Family Education at Hyde

The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have

“School is for kids; Hyde is for families.”
– a popular Hyde saying

A survey of current Hyde parents were asked,

你认为你孩子在海德的成功和你参加家庭计划有关系吗?

Over 85% of the respondents answered “Yes.”

The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have

In 2002, Laura and Malcolm Gauld wrote The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have (Scribner). Unlike other education books that focus on the child, The Biggest Job focuses on a child’s primary teacher – the parent. 这本书的主要目的是帮助父母接受并尊重成为优秀父母的承诺. The Biggest Job 书和程序是基于关于承诺的三个信念:

  1. It is hard.
  2. It is doable.
  3. It is never too late.

《jdb电子夺宝》提出并探索了10个优先事项,这些事项已成为海德家庭教育项目的支柱:

  1. Truth over Harmony
  2. Principles over Rules
  3. Attitude over Aptitude
  4. Set High Expectations and Let Go of Outcomes
  5. Value Success & Failure
  6. Allow Obstacles to Become Opportunities
  7. Take Hold and Let Go
  8. Create a Character Culture
  9. Humility to Ask for and Accept Help
  10. Inspiration: Job #1

海德父母与他们的同龄人一起研究和探索他们与这些优先级相关的角色, their children, and the faculty.

Hyde Preparation for Life

In his 1993 book Hyde – Preparation for LifeHyde的创始人Joe Gauld解释道:“在这个过程中,最有影响力的人是 parent. How well the parent comes to understand the Hyde process, and then acts on that understanding, 是学生和家庭成功的最重要因素吗, not just at Hyde, but later in life.”

Parent Commitment

There are three required components to the year-long program. The first two years have a structured format. 随后的几年里,家长们可以在项目框架内灵活安排.

  1. Region – As a global network for Hyde families, 该地区为父母们提供了一个专注于自己成长的环境. Parents are expected to attend three regional meetings (September; November and; January) and participate in Hyde webinars. During the March vacation, families do community service.  The September meeting is a parent orientation; the January meeting is an overnight retreat.
  2. Family Learning Center (FLC) – The FLC is a two- or three-day workshop held on campus. (退伍军人家庭可以选择参加缅因州尤斯蒂斯(Eustis)的野外FLC.)家长们各自从家庭教育处提供的FLC日历中选择一个最适合自己的日期(他们可能不会选择相同的日期).
  3. Family Weekends A time when the entire community gathers, 家庭周末提供了一个突出jdb电子夺宝的机会, work on family renewal and reaffirm the mission of the school. Two family weekends are held each year: one in October and one in April. 这些周末从周四晚上开始,周日中午结束.

(为了符合州和联邦健康指南,已经对该项目进行了虚拟修改.)

Parent Participation

家庭项目对所有父母和忠诚的成年人开放. Full participation involves a willingness to do one’s best. 海德认识到,冲突可能会出现,家庭教育的工作人员将与每个家庭密切合作,创造一个成功的伙伴关系,最终使学生受益.

Pa参加该项目的租房者有机会在孩子毕业典礼当天早上获得海德家长文凭.

The Hyde Parent Diploma

Hyde parents receive diplomas

At Hyde, jdb电子夺宝有意识地寻求提供性格形成的经验,这样jdb电子夺宝的学生和家长可以为个人和家庭的成长共同努力.  学年以一场令人心酸的毕业典礼结束,每位毕业生在他们的家人站在观众席上发言两分钟.  Before this, 在毕业典礼的早晨会有一个早餐仪式,在那里完成家庭教育计划的父母会收到他们自己的文凭.

Rather than having the parents speak, we read a brief citation that their children, the graduating seniors, have written in their honor.  The following examples were read at a recent graduation:

Dad, 当我还是个小女孩的时候,jdb电子夺宝一起参加了亚利桑那州立大学的橄榄球比赛, to you coaching all my soccer teams in elementary school, 直到现在——我将永远感激你是我最坚强的后盾. Our relationship hasn’t always been strong, but I believe you and I have worked hard, especially this year, to be honest with each other. This is the reason we have become close again. Your honesty has inspired me.

妈妈,我为您在过去几年里成为的人感到骄傲. 你来找海德的时候是个忧心忡忡的,胆小怕事的母亲,从来不关心自己. 你要离开的是一个坚强、自信的女人,她在为自己努力. 你激励我相信自己,相信自己领导别人的能力.

爸爸,您为我树立了最好的榜样,让我知道如何树立理想并为之奋斗. 你作为一个男人的智慧是我在成长为一个独立的成年人时努力吸收和实践的东西. 在追求成功的过程中,我不需要寻找太多的动力或灵感.

As these statements indicate, 当jdb电子夺宝的孩子看到jdb电子夺宝努力改善自己的性格时,他们会受到鼓舞. 激励他们的不是jdb电子夺宝的成就,而是jdb电子夺宝面对自身未知的努力. 当jdb电子夺宝处理一个结果不确定的个人挑战时,他们会感动, and when we strive to better ourselves as people.

父母是小学老师,家是小学教室.
