Benefits of homeschooling your kids

Learning at Home Some families set up their classrooms in very traditional manners, with desks, chalkboards, and strict schedules. They adopt structured curriculums, have set assignments assignments, and test their children. Families may adopt curriculums based on traditional or less traditional. Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but the regulations surrounding homeschool vary from state to state.

In most cases, you will need to contact your state’s school district to formally withdraw your child from public school enrollment. Once you are officially homeschooling, each state will have different requirements. 8 things to consider before homeschooling your child. 1. Have you got time to homeschool?

Hands up if you wish there were more hours in the day? If you’re juggling work, or caring for younger 2. Would it suit your relationship with your child? 3. What kind of teacher would you be?

4. Could you. For the average family, homeschooling means that a parent (usually the mom) assumes the role of educator. Some folks decide to homeschool when their children reach school age, while others turn to homeschooling when their kids experience problems or challenges in school.

1 day ago · However, if your child is average, then he or she may get bored and not learn to his or her potential. By homeschooling, you can tailor all aspects of education to your child’s needs. After all, parents know their child best. And the more time you spend time with your child, the more you’ll get to know them. The beauty of homeschooling is that your children can always catch up, leap forward, or take breaks as needed.

Homeschooling is meant to work with your life. So, if you realize you’ve made a mistake, here are a few steps to resolve the situation. Breathe. Remember your homeschooling inspiration and original goals. Connect with a support group.

Ask if those parents experienced. Homeschooling yields positive academic, social, emotional, and spiritual benefits for any family that gives it an honest chance. By now it’s no secret that all the research shows homeschooled children outstrip both their publicand private-school peers in every academic area. Less well known are these benefit.

6 hours ago · Homeschooling requires full commitment for both your child and yourself. Therefore, you simply need to go with your instincts and stick to your decisions. Recreate School; The whole point of homeschooling your children is. There are lots of ways to teach your children at home and you don’t have to do it the way a school would.

Homeschoolers have lots of flexibility in the way they teach their children and there are lots of different methods and approaches. The Tennessee Home School law (Tennessee Code Annotated § 49-6-3050) states: “A home school is a school conducted or directed by a parent or parents or a legal guardian or guardians for their own children.” Parents desiring to home school their own children may do so by choosing one of the following three options.

  • Banning homescholing in any country is pure idiocracy. The people involved in it cleary has an agenda. Don’t let the goverment turn your kids into debt slaves!

  • I would love to at least homeschool my kids in the beginning. I’m not saying I would put that burden on you. I wouldn’t mind doing it myself. However I think going to high school and middle school could be good for socialization or whatever.

    My mom used to make me sit at a desk and read and do those dumb little booklets from like age 3. She went a bit overboard. She had me at 16, by the way. Don’t know if I ever said that. To be honest, I think my kids will have the appetite to learn independently, they’ll just need to be guided. Otherwise it might be too much too fast. Like for me.

  • I was very much formally schooled and today I have less than 0 confidence to meet strangers and even the closest people in my life. I’d absolutely faint if asked to give a speech or climb on a stage and deliver a speech or act or anything to a live audience. Formal schooling and university destroyed the genius in me and now I’m too old, single and all alone in my 30s. Maybe most kids aren’t like me as they had great parents who encouraged socializing. Mine were downright conservative and orthodox and now they don’t even realize their mistake… Feel suicidal most of the time.

    So, Home schooling for sure is the best way to go as school is only meant for kids whose parents are either not qualified enough to explain studies to their kids or very well qualified but not confident and have an orthodox way of thought to bring up a child.

  • I get so tired of hearing that homeschooled kids has no social issues. what a lie. they have absolutely no clue at all how we raise our kids. ppl need to mind there own business. too much blindness and false accusations about homeschooling

  • The best thing is that I have been in public till my tenth grade

    I am homeschooling cause I need to study a different syllabus which is not offered by schools

    Humanities+politics+maths+phycology ��

  • I actually hate socializing and I have a big problem with it and it’s usually really hard for me to socialize with people so I just hide in my room all by myself where there are no humans.

  • How can homeschooled children be intelligent unless they have very smart parents? I can’t see biology, chemistry, etc. going well, but if I’m missing something someone let me know.

  • We love Home Education. Google Classroom is amazing! We found an outstanding teacher who has been published by the Cambridge University. And she only charges £5 a week per subject. Our local Councillor supports our daughter and Home Education. He prints off her digital drawings and posts them through the door. What a HERO! http://butterflylullaby.blogspot.com/2018/05/council-support-home-education-melody.html

    I hope Councils in the UK start to follow in our Councillors footsteps. Home is where the heart is, we need to promote and protect it.

  • I wish I had been homeschooled. I had a record of special needs at school and I was BADLY bullied and ridiculed by students and teachers alike. I’m 35 now and I’m “re-schooling” (re-educating myself, via homeschooling) Unfortunately, I am an only child and my mother raised me alone but I can DEFINITELY see the benefits of homeschooling. I’m learning handwriting, cursive, math, Spanish and creative writing right now.

  • I’m starting homeschool this year and this has helped me a lot! Simple and to the point. It’s a crazy world to navigate when you have no idea where to start!

  • I’ve been in public school, I’m almost done with trimester 1. In 8th grade, I have friends who live close and I can always hang out, I’m barely friends with anyone else at school. I really want to do homeschooling, public school is trashy and hostile.

  • I think the kids can still interact with plenty of other people when you home-school them. You just need to meet lots of different people, some with kids their age, and take your kids with you. Also you can send them to play groups, summer camps, to a sports team, a music class, etc, they will meet kids there. I think it is super important that a kid talks to tons of different people. It opens their minds, lets them practice their social skills and gives them new experience. When i am an adult, found my wife, moved to a country where home-schooling is legal (and where i can speak the language) and we have a kid, i will happily ask people of different jobs, cultural backgrounds, ages and with different ideas if i could meet them and let my child talk to and learn from them. I bet my child would love to talk to a real life bee breeder or journalist for a few hours:)

    I don’t want my children to learn the stuff from the school Curriculum, except for maths and english. I want to teach them important things based on their own interest in the topics and i want them to build a stable personality figuring out their strenghts, weaknesses, opinions, values, interests and future plans. I want them to keep their creativity and passion for things they love. Our world is changing and employers already start to notice that those qualities, and actual knowledge about the specific topic, are more important than grades and degrees.
    I have had so many negative experiences at school that i can’t imagine putting my child through this. ( i am an 11th-grader with, as one of many issues, a fear of people, who feels like the system is trying to put me in the trash can for, for example, not being a good enough team-player, and it is an awful experience that often takes away my hope of ever being successful in life. I am constantly trying to recover from the emotional damage i have suffered in school and getting better but i don’t want my kids to ever be at the point where i am now)
    It is bad that my country forbids home-schooling so I have to leave it later in life if i have kids. Too bad that canada or switzerland or a country like this will get my creative and motivated kids for their economy and not germany, but well, maybe they’ll see what they’re missing out on and dump our more-than-flawed education system:)

  • This is a great video. I work in adult education but we decided to homeschool our 7 yr old once COVOID hits. It has been a struggle as my son is bouncing off the walls, complains he’s bored, and unmotivated. I will start implementing many of the tips you suggested. Would love to see a video on the supplements.

  • I think that not only do homeschooled kid’s learn more,and are smarter then kid’s taught in a public school’s. but look at all of the other benefit’s shall we? 1.Your child is SAFER! Look at all of the violence with school shootings!,2.Less overcrowded classroom’s and more individualized attention allowing your child to be smarter and learn more because they get one on one attention…as opposed to 1 teacher to 30+ kid’s? This is crazy!,3.Way less bullying,4.Lower’s chance’s way down of your kid’s becoming to addicted drug’s or alcoholic’s,5.less teenage pregnancies, 6.You can more easily monitor who your kid’s friends are,6.Local public school’s have become nothing but indoctoinal places, and nanny state’s who baby sit your kid’s and try and force down their throat’s their gay and LBGTQ lifestyle agends,,etc,etc7.If your a Christian your child can not even pray over their meal’s without the risk of being punished, 8.As a homeschooling parent you as a parent take away this controlling of your childand the control is now back in the parent’s hand’s also if you want to pray over with them over their meal’s then you can do so,and if you don’t want your children to learn evolution and not make your kid’s believe they came from apes..you don’t have to teach them that,if you want to teach them Creationism instead you can do that..9.Chuck Norris and his wife went on TBN a few year’s ago and were telling people that it is perfectly legal that it your child wanted to take their Bible to school with them then they could, there are some school’s who offer after school Bible Curcullium classes,even some student’s forming their own prayer group’s,sadly though a lot of school’s do not inform student’s about this stuff so they never know…but this is just to further their agendas,but hurts the child

  • Thank you for both of your videos! New homeschooling mom here of 2 beautiful little girls! Jumping in with both feet and never looking back:) God Bless you both ��

  • Love your videos! I’m new here… I have just recently decided to homeschool my almost 5 year old daughter before she starts kindergarten and I’m really nervous because I literally know nothing about homeschooling nor do I know anyone who homeschools their children, so I’m just trying to do my own research and find some info out there! I’ve already looked at my requirements where I live which is Kentucky, but still trying to figure those out too. Lol! And by the way, your bloopers at the end are hilarious! �� I will definitely be watching your other videos and appreciate what you’re doing for all of us other mamas out there needing info and resources! Keep it up girl! You’re amazing! ��

  • what a lucky kid.. he cries about school for two weeks and gets homeschooled while I’ve cried about school for ten years and now I have severe depression and social anxiety and my parents still force me to go.

  • Well, I and my wife were one of them homeschooling their kids and our daughter has just got a job of her dream: Fashion Designer. Thanks to Son Welis and Cahaya Bangsa, but most of all: The Almighty GOD. I hope you don’t mind my sharing to those still questioning the benefits.

  • This will be my boys’ last year in public school for a least the next few years. We are in an EXCELLENT school district, however, my oldest is easily influenced by his peers in a negative way and his social interaction needs monitoring, and redirecting. He has the class clown mentality, and all he cares about is being cool and the social aspects of school, which is a pity, because he desperately wants to be a meteorologist, and needs a good education.. My middle son is very well adjusted and will thrive in any environment, and my yougest is Autistic. He has done very well in public school so far, but middle school is a whole different animal. He really struggles with doing things abstractly, and the transition to middle school is going to be extremely difficult for him, especially socially. He is very easily manipulated and taken advantage of, because he is so trusting, and he is very literal. Straight A student. If we are still in the best part of this school district when it comes time for the youngest to go to high school, and the oldest has come to realize the importance of an education, and being true to himself, l will consider them finishing in public school. Our state has the best public high schools in the U.S. so it is not the education that concerns me, but the negative influences of their peers.

  • People have lot of superstitions and education is one of the most biggest and widespread among them. Evolution had not designed the human brain to store or to process 2 decades of education. Education isolates the students from the practical world, so highly educateds r innocent, 2 b honest idiots. Moreover overdose of education is turning people as idiots lazy unhealthy and the list is endless, just how a plant dies due 2 over watering. World’s greatest personalities are either under educated or weren’t the bright students of the school for example Bill gates, Swami vivekananda, Einstein, srinivasa ramanujan, Steve jobs and the list is endless.
    If you want a job go 2 college any become idiot, otherwise don’t go to college and be intelligent, but u can’t get a good job. I believe in Finland’s education policy, which would be just one third of Indian education syllabus. The irony is Bill gates said a degree is a sure path to success, because idiots gets good job, and under educated can’t get a good job.

    I am not the first r last person to say. But changing the world is not so easy. In one of the India’s thelugu language long back wise people said as a dhobi (uneducated cloth washer) is better than the educated.

    Moreover history and research says higher iq people are most likely to fail and burn out in long term, and lower iq people are most likely to successful.

  • I am Homeschooled too since I was young but there was a year I went to a private school cuz my mom wants me to experience and then I went back to homeschool until now ☺ and also why are you asking about our social skills I have a lot of friends!

  • People say the stupidest things about homeschooling kids. I never did it but I went to a church where a lot of kids were homeschooled, and they did not fit the world`s stereotypes at all. They were not isolated, socially inept, or naive. They were all the opposite. Very outgoing, very confident, social and kind. In some cases athletic too, because they did sports outside of homeschooling. People accuse people in church of being ignorant; it’s the other way around. I know one woman did the homeschooling of her 2 girls, then had them go public in highschool so they could be on a swim team because they were swimmers all their lives. They competed a lot and we’re in all the advanced classes because they were so smart. They even took the bus, and were fine. Both went on to college and one became the college`s champion swimmer while there. She`s even a pt therapist now. Not sure why homeschooled kids are seen as being dumbed down.

  • hello there!! I’m so happy I found your page. I’m new to the Homeschool journey and we are so excited! I have a bunch of questions but one of my main concern will be the CURRICULUM. I was looking into time4learning for my 5th grader. My question will be… is time4learning a complete curriculum?

  • 3 seconds in. This video has better include one thing. HOW TO START HOMESCHOOLING!!! What subjects, how long, what else should be included. One more video about setup and kids being different and I’m gonna swear off these videos!!!

  • I love homeschooling my children. It was scary at first, but now it’s actually pretty fab! As for socialization, my children are in different activities with people of all ages. As a matter of fact, there’s so much room to socialize with sports, gymnastics, swim classes, cooking classes, art classes, field trips, park day, etc., that I actually had to slow us down a bit. We were socializing so much that I needed us to back up, slow down and socialize a little less.:-):-)

  • I’m 12 and I’m homeschooled, to be honest I think it’s better then public school because they teach you crap things there and it’s pointless. But when you are homeschooled you still have to wake up in the morning like when you’re getting ready to go to school because you need to teach yourself how to live a life so you don’t end up staying at your dad or mums house when you’re older because at around that age you need to buy yourself a house and know how to take care of yourself. Some people say you don’t meet people or get friends but you still can interact with kids, It’s not like you have to be at school to interact with kids lmao. But I just don’t agree with people going to public school I don’t know about your opinions but that’s my opinion.

    Yeah, you probably think I’m too young but I don’t care about how old people are.

  • i would love to home school but you have to be very disciplined to do so, it seemed! I would tak my kid to a public school but will homeschool subjects that they didnt teach in the school eg. my own religion which is hellenic Polythesim, cooking and survival skills! I would more than likely even do extra tuitikn aswell if they were struggling with certain subjects!

  • Hello Heather,
    I’m a parent of 3 children. 8,7, and 1. My kids are currently enrolled in public school, but my Son is having a difficult time, and I feel the school Is not helping, so my husband and I have decide to homeschool. Thanks for this video it gave me an idea to where to start.

  • I was never homeschooled growing up, however I totally support the idea. learning should be about thoroughly digesting a subject not just making grades that can’t be defended two months later. When I have children…they are definitely going to be homeschooled.

  • home schooling is a horrible way to raise kids, it restricts them from social interaction which they need to survive and succeed in life, it’s mommy’s fears that need to be in question here. they’re raising little girly men and it’s not fair to humanity. we need tough men to take the torch. just like playing, playing was something that was free and spontaneous, now it’s rigidly planned by mommy in forms of play dates. Jesus christ, get a freaking life and stop ruining our future!!

  • Covid, school shootings, lack of funding for public education… There are many reasons to homeschool, not the least of which is the utter failure of America. We build silos and gates around our kids when we homeschool and keep them in a hothouse environmentthere is an invaluable element to being with kids who are different from you (not cherry picked by your parents). I am terrified of Trump’s America but I want to work toward something better. I might be homeschooling because of this out of control virus, but I am not a fan of being so controlling over my kids’ lives and worlds. There can be so much beauty and opportunity in public schooling and I am so sad at how badly the American system is failing at realizing this potential. This fracture of communities into tiny pods is not a good thing for civic engagement or for democracy. We are turning into principalities and tribes and some are getting left behind with no one to support them.

  • Ive been in public school all my life ive never been home schooled but tbh i really want to be homeschooled but i cant secondary in england kinda sucks because of uniform and stuff but in collage you get to wear what you want:/ im going back to school on halloween ugh and the thought of it just makes me feel fed up with it ;-;

  • I used to be homeschooled myself, and I went onto go to highschool. I often wish that I had continued homeschooling longer, but there were a couple good things about public school ( I met my 2 best friends and my fiance there and my drama teacher was amazing). But in my opinion homeschooling was incredible. I wouldn’t be who I am today at ALL if I weren’t homeschooled. I also don’t believe I would be as smart, and when I went to school part time in grade 7, I could literally feel myself becoming dumber, so I left because I value intelligence so much and because of the kids bullying me. I went on to college as well and I am working towards becoming a 3D animator. I certainly don’t think that homeschooling did me any damage, and I am certainly planning to homeschool my kids in the future, and my fiance agrees (he has only ever been in a public school system and knew nothing about homeschooling until I came along).

  • wow talk about people first of all being taught a very narrow minded dougma of the parents-!that is clearly a moral issue -!these are crazy christians who cant teach evolution like wtf does science class look like omg haha

  • and to be honest the social thing is rubbish unless you force your kids to not have friends then you wont have any friends really i made more friends now im homeschooled

  • when i was in public school i got bullied no girls liked me i could not learn but now im in homeschooling and a girl asked me out plus im alot smarter

  • I’ll be homeschooling my fourth grader next year because of the ever expanding class sizes and the removal of significant education programs such as art and music. On top of that, it seems like bullying, violence and discrimination grow worse every year. My son shouldn’t be forced to learn in that type of hostile environment, where he’s more worried about getting hurt, either physically or emotionally, than he is about making a good grade.

  • Hello, My husband and I have 3 children. One is 16 years old, 14 years old and an Pre-school you is 5 years old. I have never homeschool before. Because of the Covid-19 my husband and I want to homeschool my children…. Where to begin…Thank you

  • I was homeschooled and it was the best option for me. I’m a better person because of it! Now I would like to homeschool my little one, at least for the first few years. A friend of mine recommended Open a Preschool. A book that has helped a lot of mothers get started! I’ve begun the process and our family is very excited to get started.

  • My 4th grader is starting homeschooling 2016. At home, we work on fraction, decimal, percent and converting them into eachother, exponents, square roots, negatives, pre-algebra, and introduction to geometry. At school they are working on 20×900… WT HELL! That is WAY too low for a 4th grader.

    We have little time to learn since we’re busy with baby school work.
    Homeschooling will allow enough time to study basic subjects and still be able to get her to her language school, tennis and ice skating coaches, start piano lessons, and private tutoring… all the stuff we barely have time to do before getting to bed at 11pm.

    “Don’t let school get in the way of your education” -Mark Twain

  • Kim Wilson that isn’t really smart if he doubt have alot of errands at first why whould you make it worse and have him homeschooled so he don’t have not one freand how douse he feel when he sees kids out side with his siblings you put him in a bad situation watch when he is a grown so lonely with no freands

  • I mean I’d be fine if a certified teacher or Mayim was teaching my kids in my home but I wouldn’t trust myself to teach my kids a well rounded curriculum. They would just be watching kurzgesagt all day lol

  • I have heard rumors of Children being taken away from their parents because of Homeschooling? That is the part that terrifies me…I feel trapped in a way

  • Hey Heather, really interesting hearing your U.S perspective on Homeschooling. We have moved from Australia to Thailand for volunteer work and have begun our homeschool journey. I promised some friends at home that I would vlog our progress. I will definitely be checking out your videos!

  • Thank you for this! I am just now starting this journey for my preschool aged son and you’ve been so helpful! I would love some help in finding a support group near me in Los Angeles ��

  • When we have children, my husband will be homeschooling and I will be working as well being the school administrator and also administer tests. I am thinking of doing the Iowa or Stafford tests

  • I am homeschooled and do it on my own. I am homeschooled online witch is easy cause it portable. I have a social life through sports and other things. Plus we travel a lot so homeschooling makes it easier. I was bullied so I got homeschooled.

  • If I were to send my child to public school, It would not be so they become socialized. From my experience students weren’t even allowed to talk to each unless we were working as groups on a.project. We had to be still and silent most of the time. I now homeschool and I love being able to ensure my children’s safety, encourage them when they need it, adjust to their way of learning, provide moral guidance, and provide a good choice curriculum.

  • I don’t see how rude and obnoxious public-schooled children are socialised. The homescholed kids also often take lessons from others (sports or music or even a second language) and they learn to communicate with adults with respect and manners. As I think about my own experience in public school, I wish that I wasn’t exposed to some of the things I was. I wish I was homeschooled.

  • The only reason why I liked public school was because it made me socialize with people, but that depends on the student. I’m sure there are many homeschooled students who are very social. If my parents homeschooled me, I probably be way to shy to talk to others.

  • I am considering homeschool. My oldest is 2, so I have time lol but I want to get all the information for it and be prepared. I live in Dallas Texas, no idea where support groups here would be lol

  • Im homeschooling my daughter again.She was in school for three years. I homeschool before that. Our family is against it. Their kids make fun of my kids. It’s upsetting. I could use some positive people. I’m in Chattanooga Tn.

  • Most homeschooled kids love homeschooling. But why? It’s because their parents told them that homeschooling is WONDERFUL. Every homeschool family I meet always says that the public school is a bad place. Children believe what their parents tell them.

    For example, your parents tell you the grass is green, so you grow up thinking the grass is green. But if they told you the grass was purple, you would grow up thinking that grass is purple. Same with homeschooling. Parents tell their children that homeschooling is way better than public school, thus they believe that.

    Most homeschooled children don’t ever get a chance to experience public/private schools. They miss out on a lot of things. But since they are raised to believe that public schooling is bad, they simply don’t want to experience these things, because they are “bad.” That’s why so many children just love homeschooling. Brainwashing occurs.

  • Hello great advice! I wanted to see your recommendation of kindergarten curriculum, nothing comes up. If u could let me know which one it is. thank you God Bless

  • And let’s not forget, hermetically sealed segregation from anyone slightly unlike themselves so that when they’re grown, only a compound will be a place they fit into.

  • Socialised with who? A bunch of silly kids?
    Really?
    My 7 year old goes to a $6,700 a year private school and last week was sent to the Deputy head for saying BUM.
    Bum!!!!
    What else are you meant to call it?
    Three years of this rubbish, I’m just about done.
    My son is a very sensitive, smart boy.
    The system is killing his personality.
    Week after week stupid crap like this. My son is biting his nails and anxiety ridden.
    Stuff the mainstream school system!

  • Came here for some actual information and tips and tricks…. Left with a whole bunch of life story and chit chat…. Thnx but no thnx

  • She’s a professional. She can do it. Others I know are homeschooling but they can barely read and write. For homeschooling, at least elementary school kids, the homeschooling parents should have at least a college degree. Teachers, like me, have to study hard to become licensed teachers. We don’t get the Teaching certificates out of a Cracker Jack box. Parents who wish to homeschool should EXCEL in language arts, math, social science and science.

  • With two boys on autism spectrum it was a no brainer for me to homeschool. Both my boys are incredibly bright but they have some behaviors that I feared would label them as problem children in school. My 4 and 6 year old are currently working at kindergarten and grade two respectively. Best decision ever.

  • For someone who did not do well in school you are fabulous and have great energy! My dilemma is my son is autistic, but high functioning. I just don’t know if it would hurt him to lose the help that he receives now. We moved to Texas and I really miss his school in MA. It’s not the same here. I’m at a crossroad here and I truly do not know what to do.

  • Thanks for the tips and resources! I am considering homeschooling… I think these resources are gonna be helpful making my decision!

  • Very informative. Gratitude.

    We are now enjoying our homeschooling journey. We shall be posting our homeschooling videos in our channel.

  • I am a father that is trying to take on the task of homeschooling. It would be awesome to ‘erase’ the idea that homeschooling is just for mothers.

    Gonna try my hardest for my little buddy to give him the best education I can provide!!!

  • We are born again Christians and desire to have my daughter home-schooled for religious reasons my daughter is noticing that not everybody wants to discuss Jesus in school and it hurts her but that’s not just the only reason so having videos like these are really helping me put my foot in the door of beginning homeschool for her thanks for sharing

  • We’re only two years into homeschooling. I saw “we,” but my bride does the daily in-and-out work. She’s realized that it’s okay to mix-and-match curriculum. It’s a struggle to find balance

  • Can you tell me, I am a homeschooling mom and my oldest is 6. I am looking for history books and I looked into David Barton and initially liked one of his videos but just read that he is not a historian and that he is a quack historian with flawed research. Can you tell me your research or opinion? Please like this comment if you reply so I can see if you replied, thank you.

  • I love how she mentioned that a particular curriculum might look AMAZING, but it may be too much for you in your current season. I have found this to be true! Thanks for sharing this excellent interview with us, Heather! ����

  • I’m live in Bangalore India and I love the idea of Homeschooling! I am truly inspired. It’s just that the concept is really really new here in India and I don’t think I will have any support groups or co ops and the facilities for children and really bad:( what do I do
