What resources would you recommend, or what advice would you give, to homeschooling parents?
My husband and I have decided to homeschool any children we have. We want to be involved in our kids’ education, we want to learn with them, and we want the freedom to do it in our own style and meet our kids’ individual needs.
I have really enjoyed various TED talks on education and the need to change the educational system as it stands today. Some of the TED videos have emphasized how it important it is for kids to be creative, enjoy the process of learning, and do “hands-on” education. That’s something I really want for my kids. It’s still a few years down the road (we’re expecting our first baby in June), but I don’t think it’s too early to start thinking more seriously about it!
For those of you who are or have been involved in homeschooling, what are some of the pros and cons you encountered? What resources (books, curricula, websites, blogs, organizations, articles, people to talk to, whatever) would you recommend to homeschooling parents who want to give a creative and “hands-on” education to their kids?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thanks! :)
