Keep kids’ limited attention spans in mind when preparing your lesson plans. Continuous studying can take away any fun associated with learning. Let them relax and provide them time to recouperate. It’s good for everyone.
You can use other learning resources besides textbooks. Your child should be able to read everything from cookbooks to newspapers. Reading articles allows them to learn about what’s going on in the world, opening up discussions about politics, geography and history. It will also teach them valuable analytic skills.
Homeschooling can keep your children from socializing with bad influences but they still need socialization with other children. Organize play dates with families and friends who have children. Also, bring your children to the park to help them make new friends. Learn about any sports, clubs or groups they can join as well.
Designate your housework to your kids or get help from outside. It will be hard to do everything by yourself. Your everyday household and motherly duties, homeschooling, and everything else you need to do will be overwhelming unless you call in help. Take any help you can get.
Know the laws in your state when approaching homeschooling. There is a website for the HSLDA that lays the laws out for you. Being a member of a local organization can be helpful if you run into trouble with a Board of Education or CPS. The resources that will be available definitely justify the membership costs.
Whatever your dreams are for your child–a doctor, lawyer, or professional athlete–they all must begin with a strong education foundation. Use the advice you just read at home to help your children achieve their dreams.
