 Homeschooling is the rising star of educational choice for military families for many reasons. But is it right for YOUR family?

Today, we highlight and discuss the benefits of home educating your military child. And, so by understanding the benefits, you can make an informed decision about what is best for your family!

  1. Flexibility

As Crystal’s husband says in the military there are two things you can count on when planning- the Hurry Up and Wait factor and there is no such thing as 100%, the best you can hope for is 99%. Homeschooling provides the flexibility that is vital for military families with our ever-changing, on-the-go lifestyle.

  1. Stability

Academic standards are wildly inconsistent from school district to school district, which may cause children to struggle and fall behind their peers academically when moving to a new school every two to three years. Homeschooling gives military children stability and consistency in their education.

  1. Parental Involvement and Control

You as your child’s parent and teacher can tailor your child’s education to their unique needs, abilities, and interests. You can also design a curriculum that fits your family’s lifestyle and values. You also control the environment in which your child learns, ensuring that it is safe and supportive. Homeschooling gives you the opportunity to work closely with your child and really get to know his or her strengths and weaknesses. Nobody knows what’s best for your child better than you, Mom!

  1. Strengthens Family Connections

This is a benefit for many reasons but Crystal shares her top three, explaining that childhood lasts such a short amount of time and is gone in the blink of an eye. Homeschool gives both parents, siblings, and extended family more time to form those important family bonds.

Closing Thought: Our closing thought comes from Dawn Shelton who said, “A teaching degree is to homeschooling as a culinary degree is to grandma’s cooking…it just can’t touch the love, care, and personal standard that only she can stir in.”

Friends, with so many incredible benefits, it’s no wonder homeschooling is the rising star of educational choice for military families!
