Why it is important to nurture a child’s education
More than 2.05 million students are now learning at home instead of in a classroom. The reasons why is a shocking 73% who say they are homeschooling because they are dissatisfied with the way public schools are run.
Most parents don’t think twice when August rolls around and it’s time for the kids to go back to school. Many parents work during the day and have to pay for a babysitter during their work week. I have even seen it so bad that a single woman was completely broke after paying her minimum bills, babysitting and gas. That would definitely be the con for her children to attend public school. Another disadvantage would be that you have to worry about bullying. Watching the news every day, you’ll see elementary students shooting up schools and things like that are pretty scary. The biggest pro when it comes to having his son in public school is the fact that a teacher, who spent many hours in school learning to teach children that age, spent the whole day with his little angel. .
Well, what kind of profession will my son be in if he stays home to go to school? Will he make them fat and lazy and then I’ll be stuck with a couch potato? Statistics say that 17.3% of men become accountants or engineers. Surprisingly, 169% become a teacher, doctor or lawyer. However, according to the natural assessment of children’s education, only 13% of public school students have mastered the history of the United States. Weird, isn’t that where we live?
If you get home early from work and usually take a nap before getting the kids off the bus, you can kiss that nap goodbye. If you work at home, like I do, and take the kids to the bus stop and then come home and take a nap, you can say goodbye to those naps. One of my favorite benefits of homeschooling is the fact that there is no rush in the morning. Do you remember these
“Come on guys, you’re going to be late. Get up!”
“Your breakfast is getting cold.”
What do you mean you can’t find half of your books? Where did you last have them?
“You have an exam today, and you went out this weekend to have fun, but you didn’t study?”
“You are grounded”
“You are grounded”
“Why didn’t you put the clothes you wanted to wash in the washing machine this weekend until Monday morning?”
Now they can go to a quiet room in their pajamas and do their schoolwork.
Have you ever had a student come home and tell you that their teacher wants to catch them? That they are giving them bad grades for no reason? Well guess what, as the learning coach, you want your son to do the best he’s ever done, so he’s not going to let that happen.
Honestly, homeschooling and virtual schools are the newest things to take over in my opinion. Very soon, there won’t be many public schools left, except for those parents whose children are too young to stay home. You have the opportunity to learn too.
I don’t know about you, but the older I get, the more I feel like I’m getting dumber. When I started helping my 3rd and 5th graders, I was shocked at how much I forgot. This makes me feel better, and when the kids talk to me about what they learned in school that day, instead of pretending I understand, I can actually talk to them and we have learning time as a family.
The last thing I wanted to mention is about the projects. How many times has your child brought home a piece of cardboard and said, I have a project to do? “Well, what kind?” You ask them. They look at you with that blank expression like you know this and say… “I don’t know.” Well, if you read ahead a day or two in their lesson books, you’ll know what they’re going to do, so there won’t be any confusion. Home schooling and virtual school are definitely the way to go.
I recently came across some really amazing facts that you would never guess if you didn’t see the proof in front of you. Did you know that homeschoolers are affected by external factors?
