Educating at home works, is something that any father or mother homeschooler with children already elderly can explain. Children educated at home when they grow are perfectly integrated into society, have good study habits and work, tend to be sociable, find work or undertake their own activity, and enjoy a full life. Many are studying careers in universities and get very good grades. When anyone reads this, and it is considering starting to educate at home, or is immersed in it, many times she asked but how can I be sure that I do it well? What educational and pedagogical method is the best? And the answer is this: there is no miracle method. The success of your homeschooling for their children must not depend on if you are using methods more conventional or alternative, nor of whether they are more or less rigid, the time you spend globally, or the materials used. None of this is definitive.
I have met many families educating at home, of all kinds, no matter if they did what same is done in the school practically or if they were still exclusively the interests of their children. At the end the method, or the absence of it did not affect the final result: young people with a high average culture, full of curiosity to the world that surrounds them, with hobbies and hobbies defined, a high level of sociability, responsible and entrepreneurial attitude. I’ll tell which are the actual keys they achieved that, the real secret of the success of the homeschooling. There are several things that are facilitated by intensive coexistence that occurs when not sending children to school: respect, perseverance, empowerment of the self-esteem of children, trust and enhancing its capacity of entrepreneurship. The combination of these five elements is the final key that will make you educate at home successful and satisfactory, achieving their children develop responsibility, independence, discretion, happiness, and respect for themselves and with the rest of the planet, which is going to allow to move with confidence and trust in the world when they become adults. And the part academic? You will be asked. Thats the easier to convey in a thousand and one ways.
You can find many resources, either in bookstores, libraries, or stationery, or in the network, which will help you with that part. On the internet you will find hundreds of pages that you will very diverse resources, for children and youth of all ages, with different methodologies, different approaches, separated by areas, or working across various subjects. What more important is having clear objective and priority, and know that you are not only in this task, which are always going to find with other families who are in the same situation as you, and others with more experience that will always help you and guide. Simply, when we educate at home we do not lose focus! and focus on the ultimate goal, educate human beings to be happy, independent and capable.
