7 Facts You Should Know About Homeschooling

31 January 2014, 06:53

Parents all over the globe and in South Africa are looking at homeschooling. This is a trend that have been seen with doctors, lawyers, accountants, engineers, secretaries, nurses and any parent that deems the education of their children as important. 

The debate about homeschooling over the centuries saw some people arriving at the conclusions that “the old way of doing things are better” or the myth that “homeschooling makes it difficult for the child to be social”. Old arguments like these are null and void if you consider the numerous rewards that homeschooling offer it becomes obvious why it is maybe the best option for you.

These 7 facts might change the way you look at homeschooling forever!

The traditional schooling system is in the decline

Let’s face it. Traditional schooling sucks. Some reasons for the decline in morality and efficiency are obvious and then there are the subtle reasons.

Crime, poverty and absent parents are making it increasingly difficult for children to focus on learning and excelling in life. How can you teach a child that is hungry or scared?

We also need to face that educators in traditional schools are sometimes also victims of crime and low salaries. These can cause educators to be unmotivated and disengaged.

With the fast pace life that we live it is difficult for some parents to be fully hands-on with educating their children. So we leave it up to the teachers to install beliefs and values into our children.   

Is this the best option or can we explore better ones? A question each parent should answer.

With homeschooling you can accomplish more than in schools

Accomplish more? How?

Every child has a different way of learning. The old method of the teacher knows everything and will tell the child is just not working anymore.

Richard Felder and Linda Silverman developed models of learning styles in the late 1980‘s. According to them every human learn differently. For example. Your child might learn visually. This would be their preference. If you use visual aids like pictures, graphs and diagrams it becomes easier for them to learn and retain information. 

When homeschooling you can take advantage for your child‘s learning preference and accomplish more in less time. 

“Education is what remains after one has

forgotten what one has learned in school. “– Albert Einstein
