Homeschool Basic Benefits

   By: Mary Joyce

Why should or would I homeschool?

A big decision for you and should not be taken lightly. However, with some basic preparation, it isn’t as mind boggling as you might think. The reasons to homeschool are as varied as there are families that participate in homeschooling. Many parents aren’t impressed with the education that their child is receiving at the public school, and expensive private schooling isn’t an option. Safety can also be an issue or maybe your child is struggling and you feel that they could benefit greatly with more one on one instruction. Whatever the reason, homeschooling today is growing by leaps and bounds and the resources available to those making the school at home decision are abundant.

Be clear in your mind at to why you have decided to embark on homeschooling. Write your motivation, your purpose, and your goals for your homeschool down. This will keep you focused and motivated throughout your school year. Also, with a clear concise purpose and reasons for homeschooling will arm you with conviction when you run up against those friends and family members who are less enthusiastic about your decision to homeschool. Put together your homeschool mission statement and write it down and live by it as you homeschool your kids.

The benefits of homeschooling are many. Educating your child at home certainly gives the family more together time. Something that, more and more in these modern times has proven to be on the decline. As the child grows and moves into the pre adolescent and the teen years the child feel closer to their parents and have the security and confidence in a solid parent child relationship that will enhance the child’s maturity level in this complex world.

As an at home teacher you’ll be directly in touch with the areas that your child excels and those in which they don’t this will give you the advantage of spending more time on the areas that need more attention. In the traditional classroom the teacher has a fixed amount of time available to each are of study then they must move on. Learning at home gives the child the ability to fully master each subject before moving on giving them confidence to build on that they can learn difficult subjects for them.
