As a parent, I know we always prioritize our children’s education over any other things. Our methods doesn’t matter- parents who chose to send their children to traditional or progressive schools and parents who chose to home school their children, either way, I have high respects for them. The fact that we all work hard to give our children the best education we know, is enough to give each of us a round of applause.
Having said that, I personally believe that no matter where the children’s education come from, the support the child gets from home will make a lot of difference. This is why I chose to home school my daughter. Well, after school teaching. She’s currently enrolled in a private school and we have study time at home. I teach her lessons that aren’t part of her session plans. We do activities that will enhance her analytic skills, arithmetic, drawing, etc. But for so long, I felt that I was going in circles and aimlessly creating lesson plans for her. It is time to hear what the expert home schoolers are doing!
