We live in troubled times. How often have you said to yourself, “If only I knew how to homeschool my child!”? With school violence, bullying, questionable teaching methods, inappropriate subject matter, and a system that repeatedly fails our children, no wonder so many of us stopped to ask how homeschooling could benefit our children and how to homeschool.
Thankfully, there are endless resources out there for parents who make it a priority to learn how to homeschool. There are online homeschool options for parents who do not want to (or cannot afford to) purchase all schooling materials themselves, and allows the parents the online homeschool support of other likeminded educators. There are support groups, curriculums, and testing for both physical homeschooling as well as online homeschool testing options.
If you have already asked yourself whether or not your child would benefit from a homeschool experience, whether it is through your teaching or through an online homeschool program, then you have already made up your mind that the current schooling system is not right for your child. When you learn how to homeschool, you are empowering yourself and your family to live by your values, educate your child based on your beliefs, and empowering your child to take responsibility for his or her education in a personal and meaningful way.
