Homeschool Global: Family Fun Day!


Homeschool Global Family Fun Day! 

Have you heard of homeschooling? Or if you're familiar with it, have you ever considered homeschooling your child? Growing up in a traditional school, even public school for most of my school years, I have this huge curiosity on how homeschooling works. I met most of my friends, who lasted up until now, in school. I've learned a lot from people of different backgrounds, and gained experiences dealing with them while I was in school. And so typically, that's also what I want my child to go through as he grows up.

Covering for the Homeschool Global Family Fun Day last March 24, 2018 at Don Jones Field, British School Manila answered one of my curiosities -- that yes, they do socialize! This annual Family Day, with this year's theme "Let's Come Together!" is one of the proofs!

This event is an extended celebration of the National Homeschool Day which recognizes the homeschooling community and served as a venue for parents to share best practices and interact within the group.

It was like a huge school fair for different ages where they can enjoy the inflatables, games and activity booths, and a bazaar organized by homeschooling parents. We took part in this celebration, and my son, Rhyme, enjoyed the inflatables together with the other homeschoolers.

Aside from this family day, other social activities include field trips, sports, church service, and community volunteering.

There are varied reasons why parents would choose homeschooling. But one thing is for sure, it provides an education system that is customized to your child's learning styles and capabilities. Homeschool Global (HG) is the learning organization that provides the comprehensive strategies and tools that will guide and train parents so their children can learn better. There was even a study with factors on peer interaction, leadership skills, and self-esteem, among others, that shows students who underwent homeschooling usually achieved above average scores on emotional, social, and psychological progress.

Another proof would be the student achievers whom we get to interact with.

My experience here at the Homeschool Global Family Fun Day helped me learn more about this non-traditional option where your parents are your teachers, a school is not required, and a flexible curriculum is being used that allows students to bring out their potential, without sacrificing social interaction.

  1. Homeschooling is a great option for your child. Because if you want your child to become a doctor or engineer, then it starts from your home. If you provide him this kind of environment, then he will not have any difficulty achieving his target. Homeschooling has both advantages and disadvantages. One of the major features of homeschooling is the flexible structure it offers to students. Usually, students have to follow a set curriculum if they are enrolled in school. Thanks for this article.
