The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

M is for Medical Websites

I'm currently participating in 
an ABC's for homeschooling challenge.  
Since it falls on Tuesdays, 
I am adding a technological slant to the challenge.  
I hope you stay tuned and enjoy my entries.
Children need to learn 
medical-related information.
I think it's important to show kids about their bodies.  Providing children with material to learn about bones and muscles is essential to them.  You can use book, workbooks, CDs, and websites, too.  No matter how the information is presented, children need to know how their bodies function. is a very simple website.
KidsHealth is one website that teaches about children's health.  This website breaks down for parents, teachers, children, and teen viewpoints.  Illnesses and growth are covered in the kid's version.  Recipes and Drugs are just two topics covered in the teen's version.  For parents, behavior and medications are discussed.  For teachers, there are guides based on grades.

MedlinePlus is a more academic website.
MedlinePlus is a much more technical website, but I think is worth mentioning.  Health topics are broken down in alphabetical order.  Drugs and supplements are covered, too.  There is also a sections that is broken down to target women, children, men, and senior populations.

Healthopedia is a more detailed website.

Healthopedia is another website I found.  This one covers some common surgeries and tests that are administered.  It also talks about nutrition and symptoms of possible illnesses.  This website, like MedlinePlus, shows topics in alphabetical order.  This website claims to cover over 1500 topics; that's a lot of information.
Well, thanks for reading this entry.  I hope I have provided a different way to teach your children about their bodies.  These websites provide visuals and information presented in various ways to get people to understand how their body parts function.  Illnesses are cataloged and presented in understandable manners.  There is one caveat: Visit these websites before directing your children to them; the information might be too advanced for the younger ones.
Next week, I will be covering the letter N.  Stay tuned!

How about you, my readers?  Have you found educational websites about children's health?  Would you use these websites to teach children about their bodies?  I believe in using educational websites to teach children the topics they need to learn.  I encourage you to expose your children to education through technology.

I pray that God gives you all, my beloveds, His wisdom and peace.

This has been an entry for the Technology Tuesdays series.


  1. This is a great idea! Always make sure you look at the site with your child as there may be some inaccurate information online.

  2. Head Ant,

    That's true. That's why I go through more than one source.

  3. I work in homecare and I know how important it is for your children to know how your body works and what s/s to look for regarding certain illness and diseases. I have taught my kids the systems of the body and how they interact since age 3. They are now 16, 11, and 4. I love using, webmd, national institute of health etc. Always double check facts for acuracy, everyone makes mistakes!
