Homeschooling: Is It Right For Your Child And You?
Would you use an alternative to private or public schools if you could? Many parents are believing that homeschooling is the solution. It might be that homeschooling is the right solution, and the following tips can help you get things started.
Kids need to relax once in a while, too. A lot of book-reading and studying won’t excite them about learning. Allow them to have down-time or get some exercise. Everyone is likely to recharge happily from this time off.
You need to think about what area or room you will do all of your homeschooling in. It should be roomy and comfortable, but not in a distracting area. The ideal space will allow you to use it for physical and hands-on activities (physical fitness, construction and crafting) as well as for studying and reading. This area should also be one that isn’t hard to get to, so that you can watch the kids easily at all times.
What are the laws in your state about homeschooling? These rules are different in each state, so understand what is required at all times. One common thing is that states require homeschool kids to do the same standardized tests as kids in public schools. There are a small number of states which require parents that homeschool their children to fill out a registration to become a private school entity.
How much will homeschooling cost you? For example, having only one parent working could severely reduce your income. Even parents that stay at home need to think about how they will get daily responsibilities done without using services that can cost a lot of money.
