At this time, many are having to homeschool their kids whether they like it or not. Is homeschooling right for you? Is it something you’re even considering?
A lot of people never wanted to homeschool but are in a position now where they have to homeschool. Since the schools are closed, parents are teaching their kids at home (or they’re letting them teach themselves).
You might be wondering if this is something you’d continue doing permanently.
- It keeps your kids home with you instead of with someone else for 8 hours a day
- Rather than being cooped up in a building, they get to explore more each day
- You can control what your child learns
- You have more control over who they interact with
- You’re able to tailor the work specifically to your child
The list goes on and on really as far as the benefits go, but you might be wondering…
