Here are some of the advantages of a homeschooling lifestyle. This is only a partial list.   Email us with anything you might want to add to the list at rosewood.bidwell@gmail.com  

 

 

Positive Influences.

  •  Parents are with their children all day.
  •  Children are allowed to mature at their own speeds, no "hurried child" syndrome.
  •  Parents know and understand their children and are influential in their lives, even as they enter the  teen years.
  •  Homeschooling prevents premature parent-child separation, avoiding inappropriate pressure on  children.
  •  Parents and other adults are the primary role models for homeschooled children.
  •  A child's natural thirst for learning is nurtured, not squelched, and learning becomes a lifelong joy.
  •  Each child's education can be tailored to his or her unique interests, pace, and learning style.
  •  Homeschoolers enjoy unlimited educational resources; the world is our classroom, and resources  abound in the community.
  •  Homeschooling children have time to pursue their special interests and talents.
  •  Homeschooling provides a high adult/child ratio for the student.
  •  Homeschooled children become independent thinkers who are secure in their own convictions.
  •  Homeschooling provides positive and appropriate socialization with peers and adults.
  •  Homeschooled children are largely free from peer pressure.
  •  Homeschooled children are comfortable interacting with people of all ages.
  •  Family life revolves around its own needs and priorities rather than the demands of school.
  •  Homeschooling creates/maintains positive sibling relationships.
  •  Homeschooling promotes good communication and emotional closeness within a family.
  •  Homeschooled children view adults as an integrated part of their world and as natural partners in  learning.
  •  Research shows that the two most important factors in reading and overall educational success are  positive home influence and parental involvement; homeschooling provides both.
  •  Family values and beliefs are central to social, emotional and academic development.
  •  The home-educated typically score 15 to 30 percentile points above public-school students on  standardized academic achievement tests. (The public school average is the 50th percentile;  scores range from 1 to 99.)
  • Homeschool students score above average on achievement tests regardless of their parents' level of formal education or their family's household income.
  • Degree of state control and regulation of homeschooling is not related to academic achievement.
  • Homeschool students are increasingly being actively recruited by colleges.
  • Homeschool students are regularly engaged in social and educational activities outside their homes and with people other than their nuclear-family members. They are commonly involved in activities such as field trips, scouting, 4-H, political drives, church ministry, sports teams, and community volunteer work.
  • The home-educated are doing well, typically above average, on measures of social, emotional, and psychological development. Research measures include peer interaction, self-concept, leadership skills, family cohesion, participation in community service, and self-esteem.
  • Homeschooling is about family.
  • National Home Education Research Institute. This link has a few more statistics for homeshooling.
