What I Discovered While Reading Homeschool Reviews

Mar 26, 2008
Before choosing to homeschool my children, I read various homeschool reviews. Most of the parents' experiences that I read about helped me understand the freedom that comes with expanding your child's curriculum further than just the 4-5 mandatory core subjects.

One of the more interesting homeschool reviews I read focused on a mother who blended a home-based business with her child's education.

She spoke of her experience and said that this learning style made her child intellectually well-rounded. She believed this education helped equip her child with the skills that are becoming ever more important in a changing economy.

As job security is on the decline. For many years it was a common mentality to expect a job right out of college or trade school. Most people thought that once a job was attained that you usually stayed there. This is not the case for most of us in this era.

When I read the homeschool reviews, I learned that this type of education was being used by parents to help their children learn as much as possible.

In a homeschool setting, top education is strived for, but also helping children become successful and confident is another factor.

In the public and private sectors, most children aren't even exposed to business courses; let alone how to start your own. This homeschooling mom really understood that.

If you're a mom who wants to homeschool and work from home, these are achievable goals. You could actually run your business even more efficiently if your children help. You can teach them how to start up and run their own businesses.

This was truly interesting. Imagine not only earning extra money through your home-based business, but watching as your child saves up for his or her future.

The extra money is nice, but the lessons your child will learn along the way will be invaluable. Your child will learn how to budget money, learn the ins and outs of business taxation, understand how advertising works, and know how to assign tasks to others helping out with the project.

All of these lessons will give your children the skills for building their own financial security, skills that will be with them forever.

Without those homeschool reviews, I never would have thought of combining homeschooling with teaching a child to run a business. Your child could come up with a great product, a solution, or a marketing idea that takes off. It's a great way to help your child understand the free market economy.

You might have your child do research for a product and see what kind of marketing strategies they develop. Your child could also read up on the competition.

I agree with this homeschooling mom that learning about creating a home-based business could be a great supplement to your homeschool curriculum.
