Home Schooling Resources For Parents Who Know The Truth
If you have ever wanted to "check out" the resources for home schooling, now is the time.
The concepts around home schooling come from a variety of sources. My wife and I have read most of them. And we have home schooled 4 children for the last 16 years. We pulled our oldest child out 1/2 way thru 1st grade.
As some of the kids got older, they wanted to blend a little highschool into their schedules. BUT, only the good parts...like gym class, art, aeronotics (plane flying), some of the career ed stuff like: construction (building houses)... stuff like that.
Now, toward the end, I can see that our home school teens did much better. They took the classes they wanted without any pressure. Most test high in reading or math (depending upon the kid). They let their natural talents soar. They have so far all taken college classes in highschool. So, when they graduated highschool, they were also obtaining a college Associate's Degree (2 year).
This is all possible by controlling your destiny thru home schooling!
We used software to teach the basics in reading and math. And used the best books to teach the higher levels of understanding of life to our kids. Not textbooks. grin.
My daughter right now is diving into the Tony Robins "personal development" material...and loving it. The book is 650 pages mates. Just think about that.
And my youngest is planning on playing Lacross as a school sport in the Spring. Yes, school sports are still on the menu for homeschoolers.
And one of the best parts is...in certain States, like Utah, there are certain homeschool programs that will actually pay you back some of your tax dollars to do homeschooling. YEP. In some states, they pay you to homeschool! (mostly this equates to materials, books, computers, screens, microscopes, private piano lessons, etc...can qualify.)
And so far, all my kids have graduated highschool with a diploma, or are on track to do that. (if that is a concern to you.) It can be done mates.
In Utah, and many states, there are definite advantages to home schooling.
