Homeschooling And Its Advantages

As we find our way around our new “normal” during this global pandemic, we will notice that a lot of what we do is shifting to an online space due to the nature of society having to remain at home. Whether that be business, studies, personal life, or school.

Homeschooling is often looked at as ‘inferior’ to your traditional schooling systems and to a lot of parents it seems incredibly daunting. All parents want their children to be successful and to be fully integrated into their social communities. For most kids, education means attending public or private schools. But there are millions of children worldwide who never set foot in a classroom, yet they are receiving a first-rate education — through homeschooling.

Depending on where you are in the world, there may be no other choice but to start homeschooling your kids. But even pre-COVID, why were millions of parents choosing to go the more progressive route of homeschooling? The answer is simple: it works. Children learn better when they are taught individually by a caring individual in a safe and healthy environment. And as homeschooling success stories escalate, the number of homeschooling families continues to rise.

Let’s have a look at some of the Pros of homeschooling in no particular order:

  • You have a more direct role in your child’s daily learning.
  • You have the satisfaction that your children are learning, developing skills, and maturing in a way that aligns with your goals and values as a family and home
  • Build stronger relationships with your children.
  • You can use vacations and other activities as part of your home school curriculum.
  • Your children can still participate in recreational activities and hobbies among other children
  • Real-life skill-building is stronger in home-based learning.
  • Your child can move more quickly through assignments and subjects they understand and spend more time on topics that are challenging.
  • Homeschoolers tend to perform better on standardized tests.
  • Home school students often show a greater pride in their own achievements, as they are self-motivated.

However, it is important to take into account that they will differ from family to family. You will find your own groove and what works best for you and your children within your home. Ensure that you are making a well informed and educated decision when choosing the school/establishment and curriculum. No homeschooling experience will be the same. Without a doubt, children will benefit from a wealth of learning opportunities that are not available with other school options.
