Pros & Cons of Homeschooling

There are so many pros and cons of Homeschooling, but in actuality you need to do what you think is best for your child. 

“According to Wikipedia Homeschooling or home schooling, also known as home education or elective home education (EHE), is the education of school-aged children at home or a variety of places other than school.[1]

All parents want the same thing. What’s best for their child? This year due to the pandemic parents turned to homeschooling for different reasons.

While it can be confusing and overwhelming, you need the right tools and resources which will make all the difference. Once you decide to homeschool you should make a list of pros & cons.

One frequently asked question among families just starting out is what are Homeschooling laws? The simple answer is they vary by state. So check with your school system.

Some were still waiting for schools to be safer, some wanted the flexibility, while others simply wanted to take control of their child’s education.

One of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is the flexibility it offers. Through personalized, one-on-one instruction and student-paced learning, children are able to build academic skills at their own pace.

Homeschooling is easier than you think. I’m sure you’re tired of looking around and seeing parents and kids struggle with homeschooling. So many people are struggling with it, and there are not a lot of resources created to help them.

These are my thoughts and  some research I did on the the pros and cons of homeschooling 

Let me explain the  what’s, why’s, and how’s  right now.

The What “ 

You probably think you need to know it all to be a successful homeschool mom, but I’m here to tell you that’s a myth…you don’t need a degree to help your child.

So take a deep breath, have fun with your child, and remember…Rome wasn’t built in a day! ( now smile )

First of all homeschooling doesn’t have to be the same as if your child is going to school so stick with the basics in the beginning and don’t bite off more than you can chew!

And please, please, please remember to have fun with this. You may be doing this longer than you thought.

Every child is different ( even your own ) so try not to compare to Suzy down the street’s mom. Take your time and enjoy the journey. 

“ The Why”

My first why and one thing you must do is know your states rules and what’s required from your child’s school. Let your kids be kids no matter what they are learning. Under my parent page you will find many fun activities that I will continue to build to help your homeschooling journey.This is a great time to really build on your relationship with

The first step to making an organized plan and keeping things running smoothly in your homeschool is a calendar.

My 33 year old daughter who works as a Behavioral Consultant since she was very young always loved an organized calendar. She color codes everything, uses stickers to bullet important dates, and taught me to use her methods.

You can download a free one by googling free calendars. Or my personal favorite is to find one like below on Pinterest.
