Advantage of Homeschooling
Lets look at the advantage of homeschooling, and the benefits of homeschooling children. Whether you want to know how to home school or you want to learn about homeschooling programs, you will find the information here
Are you are trying to weigh up the pros and cons of homeschooling. By reading the information here i hope you will be able to make a decision, is homeschooling right for your family?
Often our friends and family do not understand our thinking around this. We have been programmed to believe that school is right for everybody, however this is not the case. Many children do thrive in a traditional school but others do not, and school becomes a form of torture for them.
One of the biggest advantages of homeschoolingis that your child will get one on one attention. The fact that this will be probably from you and most likely in familiar surroundings is comforting for many children.
Certainly homeschooling allows you control over how you live your days; a big advantage for most people, you can schedule holidays when you wish and can tailor the days to met your families needs.
Home educating your children helps you to build on your children' strengths and to work on any weak areas. You can do more hands on activities if needed and day trips to museums, parks zoo's and workplaces to consolidate your children's learning. Being able to spend a consolidated amount of time at one subject can help some learners to really grasp concepts. It also allows you and your child to find out the learning style by which they learn the best
No one knows your child as wells as you do. Home schooling will give you the opportunity to create lesson plans (perhaps using free online homeschooling resources) tailored to your child's specific style of learning.
Peer pressure is lessened which is a definite advantage of homeschooling. You will still want to make sure that homeschooling socialization is looked into as your child will need to experience playing with other children. You do not want them to become isolated as it is essential that your children learn social skills for later life.
By home educating your child you will not have to wonder how your child is progressing in his studies. You will know exactly what your child is getting done every day and how well they understand what they have learned.
These are just a few of the homeschooling benefits. One important thing to remember, however, is to talk to your child before making a decision on the matter. Allow them to give their input if they are old enough, and be part of the decision making process. This will show your child that you are concerned with what they want, and will help to ensure co-operation.
We certainly have found that our children have become independent learners who do not need others to motivate them. They know how to find and research information that they need and we have a very close family who enjoy spending time together; another advantage of homeschooling
