- What program did your parents use? Did you like it?
- Pros and cons (in your opinion) to homeschooling.
Cons: At first I hated not having the social daily involvement with other people (I am a social butterfly!) but because of my involvement with church and other activities I didn't hate it as much. A lot of home-schoolers have a lack in social skills. My family and I were not that family...but some of the other home-schoolers I was surrounded with were immature in social skills but very book smart. There needs to be a balance. I also did not like that I was not able to participate in sports and school plays.
- Did you feel you socialized with other kids enough? How could this have been improved?
10) Any tips for parents homeschooling for how to make it better for them and their kid(s)?
The same teaching style/curriculum will not work for every child. Learn how they learn. Don’t pit siblings against one another by comparing or making things too competitive. Praise each for what they are good at.
