In the wake of the tragedy in a public school in CT, more and more parents will be considering the option of homeschooling as a safer, more interactive option for educating their preschoolers (and older kids).
“Whoa, whoa, WHOA,” you might be thinking (like many parents)… Are you qualified to teach your kids at home, and do you have the time (and patience)? Many of us young parents with toddlers may not yet be thinking about the educational choices we’ll be making in a few years for our kids.
But home education, like everything else, is not as “primitive” as it may have once been and it’s not as “hard” as it once was either. And it’s not something that comes to everyone quickly as a real option — so now would be a good time to look into your choice.
Today, homeschooling comes complete with online teaching (and testing) sites, online games and activities, science projects via Amazon.com and the numerous playgroups and social activities aimed at the erupting homeschooling audience. Many attractions now have “Homeschool Days” or special hours where homeschooling families receive a discount. Today is, more than ever, a time to discuss this as a viable education option.
What better way to explore, ask questions and learn from those who are already thoroughly plugged into the community of parents teaching their kids (of all ages) outside of the traditional school environment than to get the FREE app from The Old Schoolhouse!
