Homeschooling

Homeschooling | Homeschooling on a ShoestringOne of the most exciting aspects of homeschooling is the multitude of educational methods to choose from. Ironically, it’s also one of the most daunting and mind-boggling for those just entering the homeschooling arena. There is not any one “right” way to homeschool. How you homeschool will probably change and grow as you continue in the journey. It is beneficial to explore all the options open-mindedly. Take into consideration the needs, goals, schedules, personalities, learning styles, and obstacles of each of your children, yourself, and your family as a whole. Be patient with your family’s homeschooling journey–it takes time to break away from the public education paradigm and discover what works for your family. Homeschooling is not a one-size fits all type of education. Children’s learning styles are as varied as the biggest box of crayons one can find. If a certain style doesn’t mesh with your child, try a different method. You may even have to try different methods for different subjects. Also keep in mind the same method may not work for every child in your family. Be flexible, listen and you will find the method best for each child. We are here to be a resource for homeschoolers and those thinking about homeschooling.
