Why Choose Home Schooling? At one time, homeschooling was considered a radical choice, but it has become increasingly popular, as families are learning about the many benefits that come from teaching our children outside of the normal school venues. So, why is it, that so many families are turning to homeschooling, as the primary form of educating their children? There are as many reasons to home school, as there are “types” of homeschooling. Some choose the home school route for religious reasons, others, because of overcrowding in both public and private schools, and many choose to school at home, due to their children’s individual learning styles, medical, and/or emotional needs. Safety issues are another mounting factor, as is the quality (or lack thereof) of the education, that children are now receiving in many mainstream school arenas.
Who better to structure a child’s learning system, than a child’s family? Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, are, after all, a child’s most influential source of knowledge, and set the basic value system that one carries throughout life. We are our children’s foremost teachers. We put our children’s needs, interests, and assets, ahead of the norm of, “teaching to standardized testing”! To be able to create a safe, comfortable, and inviting learning atmosphere, benefits both child and caregiver. Homeschooling can strengthen family bonds, broaden the scope of learning, and actually increase a child’s ability to learn to cope in an ever increasingly scary world. Learning takes place everywhere, NOT, just in the traditional classroom. Education begins at home…why not keep it there!
