Extending the Role
Isabel Shaw
Most folks assume homeschooling dads go off to work each day while moms stay home to teach the kids. For many families, that's certainly the case. However, there's a new breed of homeschooling dads: those not satisfied being merely an observer. They don't want to come home from work and ask what Johnny learned today -- they want to be a part of that learning experience and learn it with him. These fathers are fostering a love of learning in their kids, and rediscovering it for themselves.
Homeschooling the Only Child
Renee Aleshire Brown
We are a unique breed. The family that has an only child. Look around, most families have 2 0r 3 children. Then in homeschool world we are quite the exception. Even stereotype concludes that homeschooling families mostly have 5, 6 or 10 students. So an only child who is homeschooled is considered strange.
Advantages of Homeschooling a Child with Autism
Laurel Joss
Many parents of children with autism have considered homeschooling at one time or another. Educating a child with autism can be a challenge, and many schools are not up to the task. Even schools with highly qualified teachers and excellent programming cannot give a child the one-on-one personal attention that a devoted parent can offer. Sadly, most schools are adequate, at best, and many parents wonder how their child will do from year to year. There are several advantages to homeschooling a child with autism. The biggest advantage is that a parent can tailor the curriculum to fit their child’s learning style, personality, and interests. In a school situation, the students are required to adapt to the teaching style and materials that are offered. Parents who homeschool can adapt the material to suit their child’s needs instead.
