Homeschooling is an educational option where parents are taking full responsibility for educating their children. Parents are designers of their own educational method and content of studies according to their children’s needs and learning styles.
If you are just starting to homeschool, you could start with a traditional approach of following the textbook or purchased homeschooling program until you feel comfortable to move away from the traditional approach.
After you gain confidence and experience in homeschooling you can start designing your own homeschooling style and approach. One of the styles many parents are adopting is a holistic homeschooling approach.
When you use a holistic approach to education, your goal is to educate the whole child. Education doesn’t happen only during the school hours. Every hour of the day counts as a learning hour.
