My Tutor Source is one site where your child can get good homeschooling through online tuition. It is affordable as well and they have some real good quality teachers as I had my son take Physics tuition from there for his As level exams and he did score an A!
The difficulty depends on the state in which you reside and its laws. Please consult the "Homeschool Legel Defense Association" (HSLDA) for legal advise concerning your particular state laws. They are very helpful and are highly recommended for all homeschool parents. Do this before you take any children out of school!
This ia a big question, Rhonda!
I guess it depends on the reason your daughter is removing her from school. Many people are taking their children out of public school to educate them along Christian principles, which are lacking in schools, and perhaps this is a strong reason for your daughter.
My own children I removed from school because I didn't like what was happening there and the very negative influences surrounding them daily. They were doing quite well then, but are extremely happy now and achieving much.
I feel it is important for a thirteen year old to have a say in whether she remains at school or not, however sometimes a parent can see something more developing that they're not happy with and must have the final decision.
In relation to your "I feel that everything she is, her identity her likes, desires and goals in life will be hindered and suppressed and she will have such hatred and rebellion toward her parents that homeschooling will only hurt her and not help.", I can only relate to you the experience of my children, and that is, they have developed in ways they would not have had done in public schools. They now have time to pursue a multitude of interests and still keep up with their school-attending friends.
If your grand-daughter is not at all happy to leave school, then yes, perhaps there will be some rebellion, and perhaps it may be that your daughter leaves her where she is and homeschools the younger children. I truly believe that communication is the key and I hope that you can find a way to talk with your daughter and both come to an understanding of each other.
Educating your child at home is often not an easy task (but very rewarding) and ideally would be best done with support from immediate family.
However, the public school system isn't working anywhere near satisfactorily enough for me ever to send my children back there.
All the best, and God bless...
depends on the school
no none of them do except for Frankie They do and did homeschooling.
She was involved in a combination of homeschooling, and a public school attending
No. Homeschooling is more biblical and it is better for you in many ways!
No, not at all... Unless your country has a specific rule on homeschooling...
Homeschooling is when parents (or hired person) teach their children the school curriculum at home, which offers flexibility and is a solution to public school programs. However, isolating your children may not be a good thing, and if you are afraid of public schools, you can always opt for private/boarding schools.
I would look on like at homeschooling.net. They also will give you programs at this local public school.
Sure. Just leave the school you are currently in, and start homeschooling!
It depends on the environment, how the child will be educated, and by whom. Sometimes homeschooling is best, while other times going to public school would be better for the child or children. It's whichever gets them the absolute best education they can receive.
Yes she did.That was until she got bullied & started homeschooling.
Check with the local public school(s), they typically offer homeschooling options using their curriculum. They take care of the legalities and paperwork too.
Public school is better than homeschooling for some families. I am a homeschooling parent. For the most part, I think homeschooling is a great thing. Most of the families I have seen are very dedicated, do the work with the kids, take their kids out and make sure they are well socialized, and have a lot of fun. However, I have seen a family or two that don't sit down with the kids to do the work or get their kids out of the house to be around friends or are involved in social situations. In these cases, it is probably better for the child to attend regular school.
My child had trouble in school (academically) and excelled (according to National Testing) in homeschooling.
No it is not. It is very unorganized. You would be better off in a Public School. NEVER do homeschooling, you will definitely not learn as much at Home Schooling.
I would personally say homeschool so they won't get bullied any more.
Justin did go to public school when he lived in Canada, but he is homeschooling now due to traveling and his major popularity.
"Normal" school may refer to the standardized public school system as opposed to private schools or homeschooling, which lead to a slightly different and less mainstreamed experience
She does homeschooling.
Through 6 grade at Hanalei Elementary School. She started homeschooling to have more time for surfing at 7 grade.
Homeschooling is governed by state law, and the laws vary a great deal from state to state. In some states your local school may be the best source of information about the appropriate procedures, but in some states public school people have little or nothing to do with homeschooling and may know very little about it. The best place to start is with a state homeschooling support group. You should be able to find one online, and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
There are several different materials and resources you can use depending on your personal educational philosophy. One option is to use curriculum published specifically for homeschooling families. Another option would be to contact your local school district and ask them about their homeschooling policy. Many school districts will lend homeschooling families their curricula and textbooks, as may offer access to extracurricular activities or school libraries. In addition, the public library and the Internet are also wonderful resources for homeschooling families. The Internet contains an endless amount of websites specifically geared towards homeschooling and your particular needs.
Yes, American School is used by many for homeschooling. It even has a Seal of Approval from Homeschool.com.
If your child has never been enrolled in a public school, you do not need to inform anyone. If your child has been in a public school, you fill out a withdraw form just as you would if you were moving or putting him in private school. For reason or new school, write "homeschool."
its because you build a better social skills Not all social skills. Public school is better because you can have fun, and you are prepared for the real world.
