Taking a decision for your child is always difficult for a parent. And especially if it is something so huge as homeschooling. You are about to break all the traditional norms and have no way to understand whether you are doing the right thing. How are you supposed to know if you are ready to homeschool your child? Well, the answer to all these lies with you and a bit of introspection can really help you to decide.
You are convinced that traditional schools are not right for your children
This is the first step and if you have come to this decision that public schools won’t help at all, you are already halfway there. You have probably researched the curriculum of the top schools, looked into their culture and been through their infrastructure. If none of the schools looked tempting to you, you are ready to homeschool.
You are determined to let your children follow their passion
And you are unlikely to sway any time soon. If your child is into music and really wants to sing, you must be already making amends to your regular schedule to fit music into their curriculum. Homeschool gives you this freedom and you want that in your life.
You want your children to learn and have been already teaching them
Homeschooling is just the continuation of this process under the guidelines of the ministry. Your priority is what your children learn rather than how much. You give them the time to grasp a subject to its full extent before moving on. All these educational traits make you fit homeschool and you will continue to do so without hesitation.
Plus, you are patient, you like your children’s company and want them to learn their values from you. If you are ticking all these boxes, you are absolutely ready. Have no further doubts and enrol your children now.
