5 Great Advantages of Homeschooling Your Children

By Edited Sep 21, 2016 1 3

Ask yourself this question: What makes homeschooling better than the traditional schooling everyone sends their children to? There seems to be a rising trend in homeschooling and families that choose to do that. A huge amount of parents are choosing to stop sending their children to traditional schools and home school them.

  1. Homeschooling children provides an extremely flexible schedule. You or your children do not have to wake up at a predetermined time every day. When you home school your children you can start their education at anytime you want. It all depends on your schedule of events. You really can schedule your child's education anytime you want. You can also differentiate on the subjects and and materials as you see fit in the interests of your child.

  1. As stated earlier, you can tailor the education of your child to the needs and interests of your child. You know that in a traditional school the teachers have no real control over how many students are in their classes. Because of that the teachers simply cannot devote the time to pay special attention to each child. Spending too much time with one child may not be fair to the educational needs of the other children. And, it is almost impossible to provide individual attention to all of the students.

When you home school your child you can give your child all the individual attention needed. You can spend extra time on any subject that needs attention in the interests of your child learning that particular subject.

You can also adjust the schedule your child needs for homeschooling. You may find that your child is really more interested in a particular subject and wants to spend more time studying that subject. Traditional educational systems cannot do this. The choice is yours.

  1. Homeschooling your child provides more quality time for any extended family activity. Vacations, trips, and other household scheduled activities will not turn out to be chores or headaches. The real benefits is your child can really enjoy the quality time and bond well with you or other extended family members. The child is free from negative peer pressure.

  1. Your child will not experience traditional peer pressure. During the homeschooling sessions he or she will not have to worry about succumbing to pressure to prove his or her abilities to other children. Parents are able to now truly understand the needs of their children and adjust the schedules and course curriculum for their interests and needs. Parents can work with their children's strengths and weakness.

  1. Many families utilize homeschooling coupled with a religious component of their child's education. Traditional schools or educational system will not do this. Parents will have the ability to adequately enhance certain moral or religious learning for their child. Parents can help their children learn their ideologies and deep beliefs rather than let the traditional school system dictate what moral characteristics and religious values your child will receive.

Homeschooling is beginning to be the best way to educate your child in accordance with your beliefs as a parent. If you have an interest and the time, look into all the benefits of homeschooling your child.

Great article! Let's not forget another positive reason to homeschool -- you get to go on the field trips too. Joking aside, I have homeschooled my children for many years, and they certainly have benefitted from one-on-one instruction. The oldest made the choice to attend public school and was immediately placed into advanced classes. It's not that he's smarter than other children, but he was able to learn more outside of the traditional classroom

Thank You. Interestingly enough, there are stats that provide evidence proving home schooled children are oftentimes much more advances in many subjects than their contemporaries in the regular school system.

We home school our children too. I love that they have time to discover their passions and follow them. They also have friends of all ages and don't discriminate in any way.
Great article!
