The role encouragement plays in home schooling - by Susie Gilliland - Helium

The role encouragement plays in home schooling - by Susie Gilliland - Helium | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

When it comes to home schooling a child no matter what the age in order to get their best the parent must understand the important part encouragement plays. With small children in grades K-3 repetition is key in learning no matter what the subject is you are teaching them. As an adult it is easy to forget that because we have already learned well beyond what we are teaching their minds have yet to completely grasp the concepts. Also lets not forget that school work even when done in a home environment is still school work to any child. We all remember how quickly we became tired and dread filled us at the thought of another science report or history assignment. With all the planning and at times chaos that can go on during the year don't miss an opportunity to say a few words to inspire and complement your child. Thankfully there are several ways to encourage your child and they are a fun and easy. One great way is to find a trustworthy home schooling website just for home schooled children. There are usually chat areas (safely monitored) where they can talk and share experiences with other kids just like them. There are also great educational games to play and articles to read written by other home schooled children. Another highly suggested idea is to be apart of a local home school group, one that meets several times a month so your child can learn as well as play with others in this unique setting. The best way to encourage any child is always from the parents mouth. Remember your child is an investment and you will always get.

Children with disabilities have additional needs that mainstream schools often fail to cater for, which is why many parents are deciding to homeschool their disabled children instead. Schools are often overcrowded and underfunded institutions, so that buildings are poorly designed and teachers insufficiently trained to cope with children who may have physical or mental difficulties. This is clearly not the case when parents decide to take their children’s education into their own hands http://www.helium.com/items/2042245-the-advantages-of-homeschooling-for-disabled-children

Encouragement is an often overlooked but very crucial part of home schooling for both child and parent. The old adage "two heads are better than one" applies also to encouragement . Parents as well as children need regular words of comfort or inspiration from others around them. Who doesn't like to hear a few words of kindness to keep us focused and productive every so often. Have you ever found yourself feeling discouraged, weary or just plan tired of the daily rituals? After awhile things can become repetitive, a going through the motions if you will. And just when you thought you couldn't stand it another minute someone gives you a few words of appreciation and encouragement that brighten your day. You can't run a car off of air or wishful thinking so the same applies to each of us as well. We don't need gas to go but we do need thoughtful words and a little compassion from those around us to give us the desire to do our best. http://www.helium.com/items/1581819-home-schooling
