Homeschooling is a good option for people who have time constraints while attending conventional school. This could be applicable for children who are pursuing alternate streams like sports, art, dance, or even live on farms where chores are important. These activities are career building but there is a requirement for a basic education that is sustainable. This is where reputed and dependable organizations like International Schooling step in.
Time management for students
Children who need to give a lot of time to other activities at odd hours may be constrained time-wise. Homeschooling provides the best option. Children can study at their own pace. If the child is a late riser, there is a comfort in working according to his sleep pattern and letting him work to the optimum at a time where he is most alert. This is now a proven scientific theory that some circadian clocks are wired to be early morning optimal and some are later than others.
Students are engaged in learning life skills which are equally important to formal education and the choice to homeschool leaves them free to travel with their parents, or allows the parent to hold a transferable job and not create any blips in the child’s education graph.
Parents can also rest easy. No long commutes to school and PTM’s, no committees or sport after school commitments. The parents can set up lesson timings as per their convenience. If the parents have a work commitment they can adjust the timings to allow personal attention.
It is a good option for work from home parents who can devote time to their children and spend quality time with them. The parent knows best what the child’s capacity is. It is a good idea to choose a smart curriculum that suits the child’s needs. The parents can set up a timetable that allows them to monitor the lessons, interact with the teachers and be a part of the assignments that the child has been given.
Homeschooling is the best way to create a synergy between parents and children. Adjustments can be made to ensure that the timings suit both the parents and the child.
