After having our minds forced to accept globalization, we are now struggling to recapture our individuality. Why we would do such a thing one might wonder. The answer is very simple. Globalization may work for economic or for political reasons, but from a psychological point of view, it is not only not productive but it can even be destructive. We are all different, we have different needs, different skills and different aspirations in life. As such, we need to be treated differently. This concept needs to be applied from the early stages of our life through interactive education. A linear education system is not at all productive. It limits our way of thinking and in doing so, it puts boundaries on our development. There is a reason why the brightest minds in history failed to complete their educational cycles. Our modern society is based on innovation. In order to develop, innovation requires creativity. The flat education systems present all over the word shorten the arms of creativity. Moreover, in schools, children are often forced to grow up sooner than they should because they come in contact with different types of situations. As such, a lot of young parents are considering home education. If you want to learn how to homeschool your child, here is what you need to know:
1. Start by researching the local laws
Each country and state has different laws which regulate home education. These laws require first of all an education for the teacher, education which must be accredited by local institutions. Moreover, they require homeschooled children to learn according to specific curriculums. You must also consider if a home education is possible in your situation, from a financial point of view. Believe it or not, homeschooling can be more expensive than public school.
2. Enroll in homeschooling groups
The next step is to enroll in homeschooling groups where you can share information with other people who can help you learn how to homeschool your child. You should also locate curriculum providers. Homeschooling support groups and online communities can also be a great use. Since we assume that any person who is considering homeschooling is a firm believer of self-education, we won’t bother to insist too much that you read some books on how to homeschool, since that should be a given.
3. Don’t neglect community activities
When learning how to homeschool your child, you must understand all aspects of education. A child that is educated at home will get very little social interaction. As such, it is important to enroll your child in some community activities in order to develop their social skills. Whether you choose sports, book clubs or any other activity, it is important to understand that home education, just like public education should satisfy a wide range of your child’s needs, from physical needs to mental and emotional needs.
