What Is Homeschooling 542



What is​ Homeschooling
The term 'homeschooling' basically refers to​ the​ process in​ which
one or​ more children of​ not more than 2 families are instructed by
parents or​ legal guardians,​ or​ a​ member of​ either household .​
The
laws that define homeschooling vary from State to​ State .​
The legal
requirements for establishing a​ homeschool also vary with the​
State .​
For most children,​ the​ actual process of​ learning begins much
before school .​
Many children already know their alphabets,​ the​
names of​ animals,​ colors and other more complicated stuff before
they reach school .​
This is​ mostly due to​ the​ hard work of​ a​ member
of the​ family who has taken the​ time to​ teach the​ child .​
Homeschooling is​ just a​ natural progression from here .​
Instead of​
sending their children to​ a​ public school,​ parents make their own
curriculum and teach their children in​ ways that best suit the​
child .​
This is​ homeschooling,​ in​ its most simplistic form.
Before you decide to​ go in​ for homeschooling,​ there are certain
important matters for consideration .​
First off,​ meet with parents
of other homeschoolers .​
Find out the​ pros and cons of​
homeschooling .​
Then ask yourself why you would want to​ adopt this
method .​
This is​ a​ very important aspect,​ as​ the​ success of​ the​
program depends on​ the​ clarity and sincerity of​ your purpose.
Next,​ it​ is​ time to​ consider the​ expenses of​ homeschooling .​
It may
cost anywhere between a​ few hundred dollars to​ a​ few thousand
every year .​
More importantly,​ you are also effectively shutting
out any job opportunity for one of​ the​ parents .​
It is​ only obvious
that one parent will have to​ stay at​ home full time to​ manage the​
homeschool .​
a​ home-based business however is​ a​ great alternative.
Are you qualified to​ take on​ homeschooling for your children?
Teaching is​ a​ continuation of​ your own learning process .​
With the​
advent of​ the​ internet,​ information is​ aplenty .​
There are various
books and resources for those interested in​ homeschooling .​
Go
through the​ various methods of​ homeschooling and choose one that
is most suited to​ you .​
It helps if​ you know what kind of​ learning
style your child has .​
Also,​ find out what your child feels about
homeschooling before you start .​
Every state has its own laws regarding homeschooling .​
For
instance,​ in​ North Carolina,​ you must first file a​ 'Notice of​
Intent' to​ start a​ home school .​
In this you have to​ mention if​ the​
school is​ a​ 'Private church' school or​ a​ 'qualified non-public
school' .​
The persons providing the​ education are required to​ have
at least a​ high school diploma .​
You have to​ maintain an​ annual
record of​ the​ child's attendance and disease immunization .​
Every
year,​ the​ child is​ required to​ undergo a​ standardized test .​
Each
student attending the​ eleventh grade has to​ take a​ nationally
standardized test .​
These are the​ requirements in​ North Carolina,​
but it​ is​ enough to​ give you a​ good idea of​ what homeschooling
entails .​
Homeschooling may seem like a​ lot of​ fun and freedom from the​
outside .​
However,​ things are seldom as​ simple as​ they seem .​
Homeschooling is​ a​ lot of​ added responsibility and hard work .​
But,​
if successful,​ it​ will forge a​ strong bond of​ love and respect
between parent and child,​ while providing your child with the​ best
form of​ education he needs.
