Should I Consider Home schooling My Child?*

*This is a collaborative post*

Education and its approach can be defined differently by individuals. Some lean towards sending their children into school so their child can gain an education from a professional in an environment designed for learning alone. On the other hand, home schooling is also a rising method of educating a child, with the freedom to cater to your child's individual needs and giving them a unique version of learning. Have you ever considered home schooling for your child? If not, here are some reasons you should consider it.

Home schooling allows child led learning which is one of the reasons many parents steer to this path of education. This means that you move at the pace of your child, rather than the pace of an entire classroom of children in which students can get left behind and lose confidence in their ability to learn. Adapting topics to your child's interests and preferred methods of learning keeps the individual keen and excited when it comes to school.

You can create your own timetable. There is no right or wrong when it comes to home schooling and no necessities to follow the national curriculum. The flexibility to choose your own topics and teach them according to the speed your child learns at is extremely effective for academic progression. You can also choose to teach when you find your child is most alert, this could even be from 2-5pm. The choice is entirely up to you. If you feel as though you lack confidence to teach, you can choose from some of the best online schools to aid you through. Not to mention, scheduling cannot be easier. Holidays and work hours can be booked with little stress as well as school runs being practically non-existent!

Confidence levels actually boost more due to the one-to-one approach. A child can actually be taught a day’s worth of learning in a matter of hours due to the close interaction with parents. Above all, a child will always feel most comfortable asking their parent questions that may seem embarrassing to ask to a teacher, which allows effective development and rapid levels of understanding.

The best part of this is, if you decide that home-schooling may not be what you want further down the line, you can easily enrol your child into a local school. So, the choice is yours, what will it be?
