Understand the Concept of Homeschooling

The concept of homeschooling varies from family to family. Before we explain how one can homeschool, we need to define homeschooling.

Homeschooling is the use of a curriculum and teaching method other than the standard classroom method. Typically, in homeschooling parents will have stringent rules in place about what is taught and how it is taught.

Consequences of Failures

Many parents are not familiar with the concept of homeschooling and the many possible conclusions that can be reached once a child is left to learn on their own. Hopefully, the information below will help you understand the potential outcomes of leaving a child to learn on their own.

Social and Emotional Deficits

Many parents who homeschool report that their children tend to be social and emotional defects. These families feel the children learn more through play and art projects rather than in the classroom environment. Children who are homeschooled may also be exhibit signs of shyness and difficulty concentrating, as well as an increased tendency towards violence.

Many parents who homeschool feel that the social model of school is not an adequate foundation for raising children. Above all, it is important to understand that homeschooling is not a destination or a path; it is simply a method of sharing curriculum and teaching methods, preserving local control, and addressing the unique interests and personalities of each child.

Independent Learning

The major advantage to homeschooling is the ability for parents to spend more time with their children and to directly participate in their education. Parents who spend hours a week in a homeschooling environment virtually meet their children for the first time. As a parent, you can and should expect your child to learn many of the time, as you will be teaching from time to time.

Homeschooling is also a wonderful way to spend time with your child, and there is no better way to make your child happy than to spend some quality time with them, apart from sending them to school.

Teaching children is a gift that you have the opportunity to give. By choosing to homeschool your child you take an active role in their development, and in giving them the opportunity to share the knowledge and wisdom they have accumulated from years of study and sharing with you.

Homeschooling is a great foundation for future education and future success. Aiming for ‘No Child Left Behind’ may have dire consequences for the homeschooling parents, children, and teachers; this is a decision that should take into account the potential for education improvement.

There is no right or wrong curriculum you can send your child to learn. You may find your local public school curriculum to be insufficient for the learning and socializing you want for your child. So you may want to find homeschooling curriculum providers.

Out of the many children that you may have, you may decide to try one of several homeschooling curricula. Finding the details of some of these curricula is important as you avoid the time and money spent trying to improve your child’s learning abilities.

Public options are relatively inexpensive, but the level of instruction is often so poor that many parents dislike them. Many parents prefer the low cost, but some find them to be so boring that they convince their children to sleep in early every night or put them to bed saying, “I’ll just stay awake until I learn how to read.”

Some examples of the different types of schools are Montessori, HomeElementary, Bible college, caught teacher, possibilities mom, and teacher’s house.

If you decide that homeschooling is for you, then you will need to know a lot more about each school and if they offer specific courses in addition to standard subjects.

Montessori education is the most popular type. This type of education is founded on a theory that each child has a right to be like all other children and that each child must learn to make his/her own choices and create his/her own world.

The children are closely monitored by trained teachers and must meet certain expectations or face consequences.

This type of education is designed to be fun and educational without being messy or disruptive. So, although it is based on classical principles, Montessori schools can be quite varied and are becoming more and more popular in the United States.

For those who are interested in a career in education, there are many different Catholic schools that are affiliated with a particular order or religious group.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral School of Design and The Art Institute of Design are two of the most popular where students can get a solid education in the arts.
