The Benefits of Homeschooling
The Benefits of Homeschooling
I believe that homeschooling is one of the best options for the education of children today. There are so many good reasons to teach your child at home. Homeschooling is a good option for anybody?s personality, whether spontaneous or not, slow learner or fast learner, a social butterfly or a hermit. Homeschooling has many different options that work for anyone. If a child is homeschooled, he does not have to be bound by a schedule. I know for me, schedules never worked. Because of my personality

Critical thinking is generally viewed as a process which will yield an outcome (a decision, belief, or action) as a result of careful thought, consideration and evaluation. It is thought to exist on the other side of the continuum of impulse and has a tendency to correspond with the value and/or importance of the outcome be

Peer pressure has a much greater effect on adolescent teens than any other factor. Think about it your teen spends more of his/her waking hours with peers than family members.

If a child feels compelled to fit in, the teen may do things that go against his/her beliefs simply to be part of the group. Peer pres
