Homeschooling your kids is not perfect for everyone, I get that. However, I do feel that everyone COULD do it. Due to our educational downfall, I feel that our country may even be better off should parents decide to homeschool their kids. I feel this way for a long list of reasons, but I’ll only name a few. While there are tons of homeschool critics, they can’t argue against these valid reasons to consider homeschooling.

Children Get Individual Education

Homeschooling your children allows one to decide how you teach your kids’ reading, writing, Math, and Science. We’re able to choose the curriculum we use to teach them. We are not required to teach them about things that we don’t believe in.

Plus, each child gets to learn using whatever method works best for them versus having a one size fits all mentality. They can learn at that their own pace too.

Why You Should Consider Homeschooling - Homeschooling is becoming popular for a solid set of reasons. See why I feel you should consider it as an option.

Freedom to Learn When and How

In the state I live in my children are only required to go to school 30 hours a week or for 6 hours a day for 180 days a year. How and when I break that down is entirely up to me provided I provide documentation of how we did it. It would amaze you the number of times they are gaining educational value just by going to the grocery store or while we’re out exploring the trails in our local national parks.

We aren’t limited to 8 AM to 3 PM Mon-Fri. trying to cram everything into our kids’ minds through set schedules. We also have all year to ensure that our kids are grasping the concepts given to them.

Form Closer Bonds with The Kids

Due to the fact that my kids are with me almost 24/7, we have the chance to form a closer bond with each other. There are times when we fight like cats and dogs over their school work. Yet, at the end of it, I still see the value behind taking the time to teach them.

I also get to see first-hand what my kids are interested in being taught. I can help them become the next Steve Jobs by encouraging them to think outside the box of ways they can turn their passions into full-time incomes.

Greater Influence on Relationships

I have a strong influence on the types of friendships my kids form. They actually ask my opinion of potential friendships they gain. They’ve learned that I want them to have the kinds of friends that will HELP steer them in the right direction. Now they look for traits in potential friends that I hope to see in them.

They don’t have to be bullied or deal with negative peer pressure. They have the freedom to be picky about who they have as close friends in their lives.

I know they consider their siblings as their best friends. They are also extremely close to me too. We have the freedom to talk about everything that crosses their minds.
