Some Benefits To Homeschooling
Mary Joyce

Homeschoolers by definition have chosen the alternative method to educate their children over public schools.

Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but you will need to know your local stateís regulations and mandates.

Depending upon how structured you want the childís educational experience to be, will determine if you decide to work from a packaged homeschool curriculum product or perhaps a bit more unstructured with a more flexible individualized homeschooling methodology. Certainly, a lot can be said for latter. This approach allows you teach subjects driven by the childís interest. Again, the amount of unit study structure you use is entirely up to you.

Another benefit of homeschooling is to not only provide for the learning of the basic subjects, but you can incorporate essential life skills into your homeschool daily lesson plans as well. Most parents choose a combination of structure and flexibility. The methods of homeschooling vary from family to family and from child to child within each family. Many parents donít actually settle into their style of teaching right away. But, rather, their teaching style and the homeschool lesson plans and schedules evolve over time until they are comfortable within the parentís confidence level.

Once you have settled into your own style of homeschool teaching you will really be able to relax and enjoy all the advantages of being a homeschooler brings. As a homeschooling parent the childís entire world is your lesson plan. You can stay in for the day and concentrate on the traditional subject matter or you can take a field trip to one of your local businesses. Or, visit some of the historic locations around your community combined with a trip to the library to learn more about that†historical site. The benefits of homeschooling is only as limited as your own creativity. As the childís parent no one else is more in tune with what educational interests your child possesses and only as a homeschool parent can you determine the amount of time needed to be spent on any particular subject in order for your child to achieve the understanding that they deserve.

Homeschooling... a lot of responsibility... to be sure. But, the rewards are endless.
