I asked my daughter to write a short post about the advantages of homeschooling. Here is what she wrote:
1.One of the advantages of homeschooling is that it sticks the family closer. The teacher is a parent, and the student is the child. Field trips usually include the whole family,a mother, a father, and a child. That way, the family is closer.
2. As a homeschooler, I have enough time to play with my brother, Toby. I also have time to do my chores for my pet, Charlie. We start around 8:00 to 8:30, have lunch break around10:30 to 11:00. And we start again around 12:30 to 1:00 and end around 2:00 to 3:00.
3.Another advantage is that when you are homeshooling, the teacher can talk directly to the child. Unlike in most schools, the teacher can answer the student without another student raising his hand.
4.There is also no bullying. The student grows up not with bullies from school, but with the guidance of his or her parents.
5. When you are homeschooler, you have more time to practice your talent (like swimming,ballet, soccer,art,basketball or others). I am now attending ballet classes. And you also have time to play because there is not much homework.
