Can Teach Your Child at Home
(and answers to other common concerns)

your child better than you.
No one cares
about your child's future more than you.
know more about your child's learning problems than their teacher does.
can be tailored to your child's interests and can utilize non-traditional
materials and methods.
You won't know
if you don't try -- you can always put your child back in school. It
doesn't have to be a "forever" decision.
how well a child can focus on learning when they aren't dealing with the
everyday stress of school.
45 minutes to 2
hours of one-on-one parent tutoring can equal or exceed a full day of
learning at school. And it can be broken up into smaller segments to
allow your child the breaks they need.
You can take
advantage of your child's "best time" of the day. If you have an early
riser, school can be done by noon. If you have a night owl, you can do
school after dinner. Remember, learning isn't confined to certain
hours of the day in a classroom setting.
amount of time you typically spend getting your child ready for school,
taking them & picking them up from school, and doing their daily homework
with them, you could be done with a day of home schooling. And there's
are doing it successfully, so you can too!
If you think
that you don't have enough patience, consider that patience is not something
a person "has" rather it's something that a person "learns." So if you
are willing, you can be learning right along with your child! Besides,
a child that is not being overloaded and who is receiving instruction where
they're at, in a way that they understand, will not hate learning.
Learning should be enjoyable and, if it's not, it's all the more reason to
be concerned that your child's current educational setting is not the right
match for them.
You are not alone. Consulting services, internet resources, books, and support groups are available to help you along the way.
