Parents at home. Children at home. On-line learning. Some are asking, “Should I really teach my child at home?” Some are saying, “I can’t do this, it is too much.” Here are some points to think about when considering whether or not to “teach” at home.
I will address on-line learning first. This pertains to families that are being provided on-line teaching from their schools.
Now I will address families that do not have on-line services from their schools:
Parents/Guardians are their children’s most important teachers. What you do matters. It doesn’t mean you have to be a “classroom teacher”. It only means that you love your child and help them to be the best person they can be. For academics it is providing experiences that help children value learning and education. Being a good role model during this time is one of the most important things you can do. So enjoy and love your children. Value them and their learning. “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
