Modern Homeschooling: From amazing travel and adventure to early entrance to university, has homeschooling finally evolved enough for you to take it seriously?

Modern Homeschooling: From amazing travel and adventure to early entrance to university, has homeschooling finally evolved enough for you to take it seriously? was a free kindle book when I wrote this post.

 It’s time to take another look at homeschooling. Homeschooling today allows for children to not only reach levels that their traditionally schooled counterparts are reaching, but to exceed them, all while enjoying more family time and a lifestyle enriched with opportunities that previous generations could only dream about. The new face of homeschooling offers travel, sports, and the ability to take your passions to the next level. If you think homeschooling means pouring over books at the kitchen table you are in for a surprise! From traditional curriculum to online schooling to early university to unschooling, homeschooling has something for everyone. Would you like to travel the world? Interested in allowing your children the opportunity to truly explore their potential in a non-school related activity? Do your children have exceptional needs that you can better accommodate at home? Do you think they would thrive if they could be accelerated and maybe even move onto higher learning at a younger age? Are you interested in more quality family time? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will benefit from reading this book.

When we found ourselves in a situation where homeschooling seemed to be the best option for our kids, we discovered that there was so much information out there and so many opinions and experiences that it was very overwhelming and nearly impossible to process it all. That is why I have decided to write this series of ebooks – my hope is to provide a comprehensive but succinct account of what is out there, and how to get started. I have begun by looking at the pros and cons of homeschooling, then a dedicated chapter on socialization – the single largest concern for parents considering homeschooling and definitely what non-homeschoolers will tell you is wrong with homeschooling! This book finishes off with a broad description of each of the types of homeschooling. My hope is that by the end of this book you will have a better understanding of what homeschooling really looks like, and what it can (and can’t) do for your family.

I don't think that homeschooling is for everyone, but if you would like more family time, if you have a desire to travel or to take on some kind of non-school activity that requires an intense commitment, or if there is something preventing your child from being in a traditional school setting, the benefits of homeschooling can truly be immeasurable. Homeschooling has grown exponentially in the past decade and as it continues to grow in popularity and scope, many new and exciting opportunities are opening up for homeschoolers. From the already abundant curricula available to the amazing ways that technology is changing homeschooling to the changing face of socialization, the modern homeschooler is a truly new breed of educator.

Today's homeschooled child is not limited by his or her homeschool education - on the contrary, many homeschooled children are propelled by it. Propelled into an accelerated academic career, into a competitive level of sport or advanced relationship with the arts. Technology is giving today's homeschooler an advantage that has been unparalleled in the past. Homeschooling today allows for children to not only reach levels that their traditionally schooled counterparts are reaching, but to exceed them, all while enjoying more family time and a lifestyle enriched with opportunities that previous generations could only dream about.

My personal experience with homeschooling was a complete surprise to me. I thought homeschooling was a dreary existence fraught with an incomplete social experience and a groundhog day type of never changing lifestyle. My eyes have been opened to homeschooling as an exciting adventure filled with opportunity and a way to truly give my children the best that life has to offer.

There's one thing that I hate more than anything. That is for someone who knows nothing about your children or your family circumstances to put their "two cents" in when it comes to homeschool. Its so funny to see that people always say the same ole thing. "Oh, but your kids are socially deprived!" Really? I don't think so. It's irritating for me when self righteous parents think that their kids being in public schools is better than mine being in homeschool.. Well, newsflash, I am spending more time with mine, instead of allowing teachers and peers to raise my kids... Thank you so much for this article. I love it and recommended it on google.
