Many homeschooling parents wonder how much they should mimic the scheduled, routine-oriented structure of public schooling in their homeschooling. Many people hold up the structure of public school as one of its assets, and wonder how they can teach their children to follow similar routines and practice time-management. But is this really necessary?
It can be difficult to maintain your children’s education by homeschooling, especially if you live in a more rural environment. Parents who educate their children themselves are often rightfully worried about how to keep up with grade school requirements and ensure their children will be able to get into college or a good trade school. One of the primary benefits of homeschool, however, is the way it allows parents to break with traditional schooling formulas.
