Unschooling - the Benefits of Home Based Education

Home schooling benefits children. As a parent, I feel it is important to provide the best opportunities available to my children. Through a process of home educating known as 'unschooling' and eclectic educational styles my children have opportunities that are unavailable through traditional means of education. I believe it is important to create leaders through individualized training and development.

A high-quality education is one of the most important things that we can provide our children. Exposure to a variety of topics, people, and adventures all contribute to a fulfilling educational experience. Resources abound in our daily lives for learning, we need to focus our minds on finding them.

Even as an adult, I find when I'm open to learning something new - I would be hard pressed not to find something new to learn. Education is a life long process that should be part of living. By separating it into a developed target of place and teachings, we limit the opportunities afforded to us on a daily basis from a multitude of resources.

Essays and journaling are great ways to share experiences, encourage writing skills, and keep track of trips. Making memories is an important part of education and living - memories are what we often base our perceptions of life and choices for the future.

What memories are you making with your children? If you'd like to share them on the public portion of our web-blog, please feel free to add your story - or better yet, introduce your children to the fun aspects of blogging.

Jan Verhoeff has more than 14 years experience in teaching her own children. Her interest in education began early in her adult life, as she realized the importance of having an education herself. Having started her children in traditional schools, Jan found the life style didn't work for her or her children. It worked far better to bring her children into a world where education was part of the life they lived. With one daughter well on her way to successfully accomplishing great things in life, and three more comfortably moving in the same direction, Jan feels confident that her ideas have been successful.
