Benefits of Being a Homeschooling Mom

Introduction:The two hardest jobs on the planet are being a mother and being a teacher. Combine the two, as homeschooling moms do, and you have yourself a career that surpasses everything else. Despite the fact that being a homeschooling mom is tough, the positives far outweigh the negatives.

  • 01

    Quality

    One of the benefits of being a homeschooling mom is the quality of education the children are receiving. Homeschooling moms are proud of the fact that their children are scoring higher on the SAT and ACT tests. They are also going further in spelling bees than traditionally educated children. Of course, many go on to college and successful careers because of the quality education they received at home.

  • 02

    Certainty

    Another benefit of being a homeschooling mom is they know with certainty their children are learning. With outcome based education the norm in many public schools, children are "making the grades," but not truly learning. Those children are passed to the next grade without mastering the skills of the previous grade. Homeschooling moms are able to take the time with their children to make sure they are learning.

  • 03

    Student-Paced Education

    Student-paced education is a huge benefit of being a homeschooling mom. Homeschooling moms can take the necessary time to make sure their children are grasping the material and not move on until the subject is thoroughly understood. Homeschooling moms are thrilled that their children do not have to wait for other students to understand the concepts being taught and can move ahead when they are ready to do so.

  • 04

    Creativity

    Homeschooling moms benefit from the creativity they can use while teaching their children. They do not have to be stuck using boring textbooks. Homeschooling moms quickly learn that cooking is an excellent way to teach fractions and a trip down the produce aisle in the grocery store is a geography lesson. It is difficult not to be able to turn everything into a lesson of some sort.

  • 05

    Socialization

    Homeschooling moms benefit from the socialization that homeschooling provides. Their children are often involved in many more extracurricular activities than traditionally educated children. These activities are more likely to be less "infiltrated" by bullies and negatives influences due to the parental involvement. Homeschooled students are well-rounded. Homeschooling moms use these activities to meet other homeschooling parents and swap stories and ideas.




Final Thoughts

Everyone knows that "when Momma is happy, everyone is happy." It is safe to say that when homeschooling moms are benefiting from their non-traditional choice to homeschool, so are their children. These benefits not only apply to homeschooling moms, but also their students.

    All reasons why I home school my kids! Great points! I love customizing my children's education to meet their exact needs, both annually and on a day to day basis. Too cranky for math today? No problem! Really into spelling today? Let's do three lessons! :)

    These are great insights on the advantages of being homeschooling mom. Flexibility, budget and time are some of the reasons why home schooling is getting more popular

    Excellent points. Homeschooling moms have a lot of advantages that traditional teachers don't--like tailoring lessons specifically for one child.
