Do you need some inspiration when you are homeschooling your kids? Here are some home school Inspirational quotes that may help you get through your rough days and help in tough times. Consider these home school inspirational quotes as nuggets of encouragement from some of the best minds in the world.
“I homeschool my children not to prepare them for exams but to prepare them for life.” (Tamara L. Chilver)
The lessons that children learn as they grow up should be ones that prepare them for life. Homeschooling is unique in that each lesson can be custom-tailored to the needs of each child.
“The first real lesson I learned as a homeschool teacher is that it’s the students that lead the way.” (Patti Armstrong)
In a homeschool setting, there is no cookie cutter or one-size-fits-all curriculum. Parents allow the children to virtually lead the way of the discussion into topics that interest them. That does not mean you can not introduce subjects into the discussion, but you can follow along where your kids’ interests lie.
“What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all.” (John Holt)
Home school is not about competing with high school, college, or any other school. It is better in certain ways because it is an environment where there is trust between parent and child.
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school” (Albert Einstein)
Education is not just about memorizing facts. It isn’t a bunch of answers that kids have to remember in order to pass a test.
“There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.” (Gandhi)
In the eyes of the great Mahatma Gandhi, all you need to have is a virtuous parent and a decent home to facilitate a great home school. You don’t need to be a scholar and you don’t need fancy tools and equipment.
“Once upon a time, all children were homeschooled. They were not sent away from home each day to a place just for children but lived, learned, worked, and played in the real world, alongside adults and other children of all ages.” (Rachel Gathercole)
The truth is that centuries ago, parents were the ones to facilitate education. Homeschooling is just restoring the home as the center of learning just as it was in the beginning.
“Homeschooled children benefit the community because they are not shaped by peers but by parents.” (Mary Kay Clark)
Parents have a more powerful impact on children than their peers. In fact, they even provide deeper and richer insight.
“The beauty of home education is that it gives a family more time together–time to solidify relationships, to communicate values, and to focus on each child’s individual needs in a consistent and unhurried atmosphere.” (Kimberly Hahn & Mary Hasson)
Homeschooling is all about] quality time between parents and children. It provides multiple chances for all family members to develop lasting ties that bind generations.
“Homeschooling is not a race to the finish line; it’s a journey of a million small discoveries on the path that God has marked out for you.” (Jeannie Fulbright)
Never be in a hurry to complete lessons. The quality of learning in homeschooling is more important than the number of lessons you cover.
“Nothing is as contagious as example.” (La Rochefoucauld)
One of the keys of successful homeschooling is that parents lead and teach by example.
“Homeschooling is probably the most important work you’ll ever do, as a parent, within the four walls of your home.” (Harold B. Lee)
You have to take great pleasure at homeschooling since it helps you mold your kids into what you want them to become. Consider it as a crucial part of your children’s development.
“Education goes beyond the filling of a bucket; it’s about lighting up a lasting fire.” (W.B Yeats)
When schooling your children from home, you’re setting them up for a lifetime. Anything new they learn from home will help inform their future decision making and attitude changes.
“Homeschooling gives you the freedom to hop off the highway of learning and embrace a more scenic route through a dirt road.”
(Tamara L. Cliver)
The journey to successful homeschooling isn’t always that smooth. You have to embrace yourself for the challenges that come with homeschooling and learn how to solve each one of them as they come.
“An observant child needs to be put on the path of things that are worth observing.” (Charlotte Mason)
One great thing about homeschooling is that it suits the needs of children with gifts. You get the chance to supervise the learning curve of your child by exposing them to things that will develop their unique talents and gifts.
“Tell me and I’ll forget. Teach me and I’ll remember. Engage me and I’ll learn. ” (Ben Franklin)
Unlike the formal education system, children get undivided attention from their teachers when being homeschooled. It’s easier for the teacher to identify the unique challenges your kids face when it comes to learning and suggest appropriate solutions that will improve your child’s learning curve.
“The home is undeniably the first and most effective place for learning the lessons of life: self-control, virtue, honor, truth, the value of education, the privilege and purpose of life and honest work. Nothing can replace the home in teaching and rearing children, and no other success would ever compensate for failures in the home.” (David O. McKay)
Homeschooling ensures that your child gets informed about the things they’ll need to further their careers and those they’ll need to lead a sustainable life. When done properly, it promotes a long-lasting sense of fulfilment in the lives of the learners.
“When you choose to homeschool your kids, you’ll have to make sacrifices in terms of money, energy and time. What’s more important in life is the time spent together as a family…nothing will ever replace that. You can also have that time. Concentrate on positive things and enjoy spending time with your children. You won’t regret it. “(Barbara Frank)
The key to succeeding in homeschooling largely lies on how you manage your time at home with your children. Though you have to make money, you need a plan that will ensure that your kids get the right education and family support.
“Anything, everything, can easily be learned provided you get yourself in some but of real nature, real ground, real anything. Just stay still and watch.” (Lauren Hutton)
The home environment is far way more conducive than the traditional school setup. Your kids get to enjoy the ambience and peace that your home brings while they immerse themselves in books.
“Education is the far most powerful weapon you can use when changing the world.” (Nelson Mandela)
When you expose your children to the best that education has to offer (homeschooling, in this case), you give them a chance to be active in activities aimed at changing the world. You’ll be setting your children up for a life that’s full of solving problems and recommending sustainable solutions for others.
“I learned that the safest path isn’t, always, the best path. And I learned not to trust the voice of fear.” (Steve Goofier)
Though it’s normal to worry about the outcome of homeschooling, you shouldn’t let that fear prevent you from changing the way your children get their education. Embrace that fear keeping in mind that you’re on a journey of accomplishing great things for your young ones.
Day Twenty One
“Education shouldn’t simply teach work. It must teach life.” (W.E.B Du Bois)
Your goal for getting your children home schooled should primarily focus on allowing them to experience life. When you deny kids a chance to learn about life, it will be challenging for them to cope with life changes and interact with other people.
Day Twenty Two
“Our entire school system relies on the motion that students must acquire an education for them to learn. Our country spends billions of dollars every year giving students second-hand education while preventing them from acquiring an education on their own. It upsets me how schools produce students with massively battered egos. Most of them have no idea of how much they can accomplish on their own and the true joy of learning.” (Adam Robinson)
Homeschooling gives your child access to an education geared at self-development and self-sustenance rather than grades. Your children get to learn at their own pace and pleasure without pressure from teachers who expect them to perform in a predetermined way.
Day Twenty Three
“Formal education will help you earn a living but self-education will get you a fortune.” (Jim Rohn)
The homeschooling curriculum usually focuses on allowing students to learn under minimal supervision. Your homeschooled children will know how to take ideas from others and form their own for better chances at succeeding in life.
Day Twenty Four
“When connected, we feel like someone’s hearing us. When we feel like no one is force feeding us an education, that’s when fiery, passionate, real learning takes place.” (Jessica Pilton)
Your role as a parent or guardian should partly involve ensuring your kids that you have their best interests at heart. Once your children feel like there’s someone who values and hears their concerns, it becomes easy for them to acquire knowledge.
Day Twenty Five
“The entire purpose of education is mainly to turn mirrors to windows.” (Sydney J. Harris)
When homeschooling your children, they’ll get to learn more about their strengths and weaknesses and be in a better position of using what they know about themselves to make the world a better place. You’ll be cultivating future leaders who are mindful about themselves and their surroundings.
Day Twenty Six
“When the atmosphere adequately encourages learning, learning will be inevitable.” (Elizabeth Foss)
Homeschooling provides your kids a chance to learn in an environment that’s free of pressure and disruptions. They get to channel the peace and comfort that comes with being at home in their learning process.
Day Twenty Seven
“The same ones who physically brought the children to the world, have a natural obligation, binding in the natural law, to always provide for their offspring’s social, moral and mental upbringing.” (Fr. John Hardon)
Since the decision to get your children homeschooled largely lies on you as a parent, you’ll be contributing to their mental, moral and social growth and development. You’ll also feel a sense of accomplishment with everything you did to ensure that your kids get their education from home.
Day Twenty Eight
“Children are always born naturalists. They tend to explore the world using all of their senses, experiment in their environment, and communicate their unique discoveries to those surrounding them.” (The Audubon Nature Preschool)
With homeschooling, you give your kid a chance to explore what the world has to offer when it comes to education. Every time they learn or discover something new, you’ll be their go-to person if they feel the need to share their discoveries.
Day Twenty Nine
“The only person who’s educated, is the one who learned how to learn as well as change.” (Carl Rogers)
Homeschooling provides your children an opportunity to be creative and use their imagination to the fullest. As they adapt to a new learning environment, their minds will forever learn how to adjust to new situations.
“For a child, there’s no division between learning and playing; between the things he/she does for fun and those that are educational. The child will learn while living, and any aspect of living that’s enjoyable will also be play.” (Penelope Leach)
Homeschooled children usually get more freedom when it comes to learning. When learning becomes interactive and enjoyable, it’s easier for them to make progress.
Day Thirty One
“Knowledge that’s acquired under compulsion won’t have any hold on the mind. Therefore, don’t use compulsion, instead, let early education offer some sense of amusement; you’ll then be in a position of discovering your kid’s natural bent.” (Plato)
Homeschooling is a great alternative to the traditional school system, which usually involves strict timetables and routines. Since your children without pressure over-ambitious teachers, they get to enjoy everything they learn from home.
