One of the main concerns of parents new to homeschooling, is “Am I qualified to teach my child?”
“What if something goes wrong?”
“I never finished school.”
“I didn’t do well in school.”
“I didn’t study to be a teacher…”
Allow me to let you in on a little secret: the best person to teach your child is YOU!
Who else knows your child inside out, knows their deepest fears, desires, dreams. Who else knows what amazing things they’re capable of? Who else knows their greatest weaknesses, and is prepared to help them work through them with love and compassion, in their own time? Who cares most about their future? YOU!
You don’t need to ‘know the system’ to be able to teach your child. The system is broken.
It doesn’t matter that you didn’t do well in school or even finished school. Learn with your child! If you’re willing to go down to their level and have a childlike passion for the acquisition of knowledge, you are already qualified!
And the things you might struggle with in the High School years (Math, Science, etc.) simply outsource to a tutor!
Look, I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m not saying you’ll never get frustrated with your child.
They don’t always listen. They don’t always do what you want when you want. There will be days when you stay in bed with documentaries and a tub of ice cream. And that’s okay! Well, as long as you don’t do that every day 😉 Your child will be okay! Just pick where you left off the day after!
Some parents do feel that they simply don’t have the time or patience. Some moms work from home and want someone else to teach their child at home. But it’s unfortunately very difficult to find a tutor with the passion you require. Someone that will see your child as a person instead of a paycheck! That’s why I created the Online School. To help busy parents give their children a home education without all the planning and effort 😉
Yep, all the planning and ‘work’ done for you! You just have to supervise! It couldn’t be easier 😉
