THE BENEFITS OF HOMESCHOOL EDUCATION
Based on current standards and curriculum provided by schools, classrooms often take the “one size fits all” approach. The reality is that one size doesn’t fit all. This is where homeschooling comes in. Homeschool education is a unique opportunity for families to create a flexible and customized learning plan around their children. Here is an overview of the irreplaceable benefits of using homeschooled to educate your little ones.
Homeschooling Provides Customized Emotional Support
Homeschooling is unique in that it allows for the development of a child's emotional needs in ways nothing else does. Now more than ever, with the craziness of our world, parents have a heightened awareness of the need for physical and emotional safety. They have a desire for their child to have the very best emotional support possible. This support is vital for mental resilience and emotional awareness. Having proper support allows a child to develop the skills needed to become a well balanced and mature adult, which in turn allows them to be happy and successful in life.
Schooling from home can give children the space to experience and share their complex emotions freely. Having individual attention available allows their behavior to be addressed within an appropriate time frame. It also allows the child to immediately learn and implement techniques that help them self-regulate and rebalance. You will not find this emotional support within the walls of a classroom, it’s just not possible.
Homeschooling Provides Personal Confidence
Homeschooling provides an environment of personal encouragement. Having an ample amount of feedback instills great adult-child communication as well as individual confidence from an early age. Through homeschooling children have the freedom to explore their own individual interests. Through this freedom, they find an ability to stand on their own two feet and discover the power they have to make their own decisions. They can focus more on their own curiosities, and expand learning from this natural curiosity. This means there is less focus on performance for the sake of meeting curriculum or particular grade expectations and in the end more effective learning for the child. With this structure, you get both a child who is solid in who they are and a child who endlessly loves to learn.
With Homeschooling, You Can Learn Anywhere!
Homeschooling provides flexibility for learning to happen anywhere. If there has been consideration of a move to another country or you’d like to be more mobile as a family, homeschooling is a great way to provide education while traveling. Museums, monuments, and parks can be fantastic resources for learning. Becoming involved in local homeschool groups also allow for opportunities to get involved in the community while providing support for both you and your family. These communities exist all over the world and can also help you connect with some great resources when in a place of uncertainty or need. It's almost like homeschooling and travel were made for each other!
At the end of the day, your home is a safe space and comfort is a key ingredient. Your love and support is the most important thing guiding your child's learning and development. Through homeschooling you are provided the freedom to live your life the way you see fit. The possibilities are endless.
