My 9 year old son came to me the other day and said he wanted to write an article on the ten best things about homeschooling. I thought what he wrote was so interesting because it showed me what he values the most about the experience. Some of the things made me laugh too!
Other than assisting with opening up Microsoft Word and showing him how to use spell check, he did this on his own.
1: Kids can get their chores done faster.
2: Some schools have a dress code but you can wear what you want when you are home schooled.
3: At school you have to sit down for SEVEN HOURS! Moreover, you can spend more time with your family. And that is the important thing.
4: You can save money because, you don’t have to drive your kids to school and you don’t have to spend money on school clothes or lunches.
5: There is not as much schoolwork to do. You can learn faster.
6: You can do your work at just about any time of the day.
7: Kids can learn at their own pace.
8: Kids don’t miss their favorite PBS show.
9: Kids can have more fun with mom and dad.
10: Kids don’t have to worry about bullies, mean teachers and not being able to go to the bathroom when they want to.
My favorite part was the “moreover”. Oh and the part about not missing his favorite PBS show.
What do your kids say are their favorite things about homeschooling?
