Homeschooling Program - Is It For You?
You may think that homeschooling is just what you call it to be but there are more to learn about it. Check the article to know if it is really for you and your kids.
If you will be given an option to teach your child at home, will you do it? With the steeping prices of tuition fees, increasing crimes, and declining education standards, the option of homeschooling has been getting a lot of attention these days.
What is Home Schooling
Actually, most of us parents did home school our children when they were young. I personally have done this and tutored my two daughters when they were were 4 years old. They skipped the nursery stage because I was already able to teach them to read, write and draw. The prep school assessed them that they can start with Kinder 1. It gave us great relief to save money for that 1 whole year when we did not have to spend for their tuition fee. It was also a joyous experience knowing that our children learned their first subjects through us, their parents.
Basically, home schooling is like that and it can be easy to decide to go through it when your child is still a little tot or a toddler. What if your children are already grown ups just like mine?
Best Candidates for Home Schooling
I've never given much thought about home schooling until recently when I've read about so many parents doing it and realized that it is indeed being allowed in the country. Actually, many families undergo homeschooling programs when they fall in these categories:
1.they live in secluded places (maybe far away provinces)
Homeschooling As Part of Parenting Style
Aside from the reasons I've mentioned above, there are families who
may choose homeschooling because they have parenting reasons to do so.
One reason is they have religious beliefs that they want to instill to
their children which can't be done when they go to big schools. Another
reason I see is because of the increasing issues in bullying wherein
parents think that big schools these days, no matter how they claim that
they are dealing with these issues, is that some children are just
getting to be more aggressive and their children's mental/social growth
will just be impeded when they continue to go to these schools.
The Best Sources To Learn About Home Schooling
There are LOTS more to learn about homeschooling and there will be hundreds of articles and data which you can find online. But the question is, are they for you? There are lots of situations a family can deal with and not all of them may be applicable to yours. The best advice I can give, in my experience, is ask the persons who are of the same race who live in the same situations. Filipino families who actually bloomed and developed their children through home schooling.
