Homeschooling is for Everyone!!
What does that mean? Well it doesn’t matter if your kids go to public school, private school, unschool or homeschool, it is still your responsibility to homeschool your child. Think about it…a teacher at any school does not have time in the day to give your child along with 15-30 others individual attention and education. It just isn’t possible. So teachers send home worksheets of homework (not helping) but these do nothing for a child’s education. Why? Because what they need most is guidance and love from the people they depend on most…their family.
My son has been blessed with excellent teachers at his school. I couldn’t ask for better. But a teacher can’t take your child on a field trip every week or set up gardening and sensory activities. They can teach your child what they need to know, but they can’t teach your child what you know. they can’t follow their interests and teach them what they want to know, but you can.
It is my belief that homeschooling is not exclusive to those who do not attend a traditional or nontraditional institution. Homeschooling is for everyone, everywhere!
My son attends public school, my children will all likely attend public school, and I will teach at a public school once my youngest enters kindergarten. But that does not negate the fact that we still homeschool. Everyone in our family participates and it is a beautiful thing to watch your child learn something new and know that you played a part in it.
So turn off that TV and open a book, or do a science experiment. Find some cool lesson plans, and give your child the education they want and deserve 🙂
We are a homeschooling family 🙂 We use Waldorf Essentials and Montessori and supplement with life! You will find little tips and tricks and just how we do things day to day.
