Reasons to Start Homeschooling Today

Mar 30, 2008
If you plan to start homeschooling your children, you don't have to feel overwhelmed or inadequate. You are your children's best teacher because you love them and want them to have a quality education.

Your permission to teach your children comes from God, and your ability outweighs what a public education could give your child. Once you are committed to start homeschooling, you will be able to provide the best education for your children.

Even if you feel like you don't have the necessary skills or knowledge to teach your children, that doesn't have to be a problem. You can teach your child what you already know, and when it's time to learn a subject where your knowledge is limited, you can learn it along with your children.

Many parents who start homeschooling are worried about costs. That's not a real problem either, since homeschooling doesn't have to cost much; it can even be free. If you decide to buy some curriculum, do so with care.

If you live close to a public library, you have a fantastic resource at hand. The library isn't just the place to go for a book selection: You can also tale advantage of the selection of magazines, videos, tapes, foreign language aids, computer equipment, homeschooling programs, and phonics tapes.

You can also use the library in your home. You can affordably build your library by finding quality books at garage sales, thrift stores, and online.

The entire schooling process begins with the basics, something parents quickly learn after they start homeschooling. Reading aloud to your child is one of the best things you can do together. Emphasize the importance of the written word.

If you start homeschooling your children at the age when they would normally go to public school, you can ease them into a routine. You can teach one subject at a time until you have seen some success.

It's best to begin with phonics. You can soon move on to other subjects such as reading, writing in cursive, and creative writing. You'll also want to bring math into the picture eventually.

You can find a variety of resources to help you teach these subjects. You can start homeschooling your children and feel successful. And the great thing is that you don't have to do it alone.
