Is Homeschooling an Option for Your Family?
Hasn't 2020 been life changing for many of us? Some have been faced with new and challenging situations, that have led us to alter our routine practices, and home life. Whether it be a change in our job to remote communications, a shift in our way of living and interacting with others, or a transition in the way our children learn, we can all name a few.
In light of this, I thought it would be great to touch upon the idea of whether or not, homeschooling may be an option for us, as a new and considerable one.
Many of us have already made this once in a lifetime move to homeschooling our children in our very own homes. Allowing for us to tailor and shape their educational plans, to fit their specific needs in a way no institution could do. Let's face it, there is no one on this earth, that could know our children better than we could as parents.
A change likes this though exciting, and rewarding, will come with ever-changing hills and mountains to climb, but looking ahead at the rewards and the fruits of our labor, make the work and time all the more worth it.
As a Christian family, this choice is all the more precious as we can teach our children to know about God, and truly glorify Him in our studies. Whether it be through learning about how the earth seems to just hang in space effortlessly, or how it is that the sun could be at just the right distance to support life, or whether it be learning about the intricacies of how math can be found in even the littlest of things such as the perfect shape of a bee's hive. A home school family is always learning, and the possibilities are endless.
Take some time to consider whether this could be just the right choice for you and your family. Take a look at the requirements for homeschooling in your specific state, and start to research educational options and learning styles, that may help you along your journey. More ideas, tips, and tools to come ahead.
