Homeschooling your child is a rewarding experience, but it can also be challenging. If you’ve been doing it for years, you’re probably familiar with the difficulties of homeschooling your child. If you’re yet to dive into the world of homeschooling, don’t worry because we’re here to help you prepare and overcome these challenges.
Homeschoolers represent less than 5% of the student population in the United States as of 2012. Choosing to do something that’s different from what the majority does may make you doubt your decision, and you will deal with invasive questions if not statements of disapproval.
Parents who chose to homeschool their children years ago had to endure judgment and scrutiny, but the world has changed. Homeschooling is greatly accepted and widely recognized these days albeit it remains a rare way to educate children. Meet fellow homeschoolers at one of our homeschooling conventions.
When you have committed to homeschooling your children, you need to create a plan on what to teach, how to streamline your children’s records, etc. Planning and recordkeeping can be daunting for some homeschoolers that’s why we make sure that these are covered by our speakers at our regional homeschooling conventions.
For some homeschoolers, having a lot of options in terms of teaching methods and learning styles is a good thing. However, others might find it overwhelming. If you’re new to homeschooling, join us for an overview of homeschooling teaching methods and styles. We’ll also share with you the important considerations when choosing a homeschooling curriculum and resources.
Parents who homeschool their children might feel that they are solely responsible for their children’s learning. It may feel great if things are going well, but some parents might hit a roadblock and start to ask themselves if they’re on the right track. To help you, our regional homeschooling conventions are held every year. Our exhibitors and speakers are ready to help you find your way. Most of them are homeschooling or have homeschooled their children, and some were also homeschooled in their youth.
When you’re a mother and a teacher to your child, it might be challenging to strike a balance. Homeschooling makes you not only your child’s mother and teacher but also the principal and guidance counselor. Sometimes, you have to fill the two roles at the same time when making a decision. Attend one of our conventions this year to meet experienced homeschoolers.
Whether you’re just considering homeschooling or have been educating your child for a long time, our regional homeschool conventions can help you find parents who have the same beliefs; speakers who are committed to helping you become successful in your homeschooling adventure; and authors of homeschool curricula who can discuss the important things that you should know about. Our homeschooling conventions also feature resources to help you overcome the challenges in homeschooling and provide the best possible education to your child.
