Every homeschool parents must be happy when kids can learn more independently. However, It is not easy to help them to do so, especially the teenagers. It is started from the planning step to the learning process. Today I would like to share some tips on how to help homeschool teenagers learn more independently.
It is started from the planning step. Homeschool teenagers should be able to control their learning so they can do some self-evaluation about their learning process. Planning my children's lessons and checking their work are 2 things I have been doing to control our homeschool. Tracking homeschool is very important for us to control ourselves. Do you do the same thing?
On the other hand, have you ever considered how your children feel being tracked in homeschooling? Little children might not know that parents are tracking them. Children who can read will be able to follow the daily checklist. Teenagers who have had some “rebellious” thought might be bored when they have followed checklists from day to day previously. Therefore, it is necessary to involve them into the system so they can go into it more independently.
Reasons to Involve Children
Children have different kinds, stages, or speed of maturity. Children in any stage of maturity can be involved in the homeschooling system to control. They will be involved in different ways based on their condition. Younger children might work better than the older children and the older children might be more responsible than the younger ones. It depends on the level of maturity.
In any level, it won't be useless to try involving your children in controlling homeschool.
- They will be more responsible to do the system because they understand. They will build a sense of belonging in home education. They will understand that education is not the responsibility of parents or others.
- Children will have more proud because parents trust them.
- Children can ease parents' work in controlling homeschool.
- It will be a continual life education about the mechanism of the system. Children will learn about procedures, management, and control in other areas of life.
