Home schooling or home school (also called home education or home learning)
is the education of children at home, typically by parents or professional tutors, rather than in a public or private school.
Although prior to the introduction of compulsory school attendance laws, most childhood education occurred within the family or community, home schooling in the modern sense is an alternative in developed countries to formal education.
In many places home schooling is a legal option for parents who wish to provide their children with a different learning environment than exists in nearby schools. The motivations for home schooling range from a dissatisfaction with the schools in their area to the dissatisfaction of modern schools in general. It is also an alternative for families living in isolated rural locations and those who choose, for practical or personal reasons, not to have their children attend school.

Select Curriculum and Develop Goals. A curriculum is not only books; it is all the things used to meet your goals. It needs to be appropriate for your children's abilities. There are many different criteria used in selecting materials.
Set goals that will help your students develop an intrinsic love for learning and inspire creativity in four major areas: academics, character building, service, and work. True home schooling is not patterned after traditional public education. It integrates practical skills with aspects of education.
Develop Discipline and Earn Respect. Be consistent leaders. As role models for your children, give them cause to respect you. Children feel more secure and less frustrated when they know who is in control.
The golden rule should be the basis of all rules. Rules should be few and reasonable; they should include obedience, courtesy, and safety. Children need to know what is expected.
Develop Order. Get your self a calendar and write proposed ideas to teach on certain days.
Be Enthusiastic! Children learn attitudes from parents. If you are happy, interested, and excited about what you are teaching, they will be happy about learning. Many parents declare they learn more than the children during their first year of home teaching.
Trust the Work of the Holy Spirit. One parent observed in her church a family whose children seemed very well-
Believe In Your Child!
A great piece of advice I got was when I started home schooling was believe in your child.
I looked at the difficulty of the work that was required for my 2 girls and I thought of how difficult this will be.
But I just took the learning processes step by step and now they are learning and retaining the information as great strides.
I believed that they could do the work and they did. My confidence in them made them believe they could do it if they try their best.!
Home Schooling Tips:
Kids learn in different ways and at their own pace.
So figure out their learning style and rejoice in their learning. Stop comparing them to a preconceived notion of having to learn XYZ by a certain grade or age.
You are going to be with them a lot and you will know what they know and what they don't know right away. No need to worry that they will graduate missing something essential.
Remember that what works for one family (or one child) may not work for another.
Never allow school to interfere with your education. (That came from Mark Twain, I believe.)
Remember a little “love”
and “encouragement” can go a long way!
Image the possibilities! With your guidance your love your child can go on to do great things.
