3. Flexibility To Focus On Areas Of Interest And Excellence.
Our Children all learn differently as discussed above but they also tend to have many different areas of interest and excellence. Some students may be very interested in building things while others pursue creative pursuits like art and music. One student may love reading about science while another loves reading and acting in plays. One child may be gifted in chess and math while another is a strong leader and excellent socially. All these different areas of interest and excellence should be cultivated. Not every child should be pursuing the same thing. In Homschooling you can design your school day with these differences in mind. With the extra time and flexibility you can pursue subjects and opportunities that other traditionally schooled students wouldn’t have the opportunity to do. Homeschool provides the unique platform of flexibility that allows you to encourage your child’s unique and distinct strengths and interests.
