Today, more and more parents are choosing to homeschool their children. Many parents want to homeschool their children because they are considered about the negative influences of public school. Others choose to homeschool because they want to spend more time with their children. The key to successfully homeschooling a child is to turn one’s home into a classroom. One of the ways that parents can turn their home into a classroom is set up a room in the house that is just for studying and doing homework. This room should have a desk, books, lamp and a computer. This room should be free of distractions, such as television, radio and telephone.
Parents also need to make sure that they set a schedule for their children. This schedule should include times that the child is supposed to be studying and times that the child is allowed to do something that he or she wants to do i.e. (go outside, watch tv, talk on the phone). Children who have schedule will have better time-management skills later in life.
Homeschooling can benefit a child in many ways, but in order for homeschooling to be a success, parents will have to turn their homes into a classroom.
