A common misconception of homeschooling is that the decision to take control of your child’s education must come with career sacrifice. While home childcare and education is a full-time job for some parents, that certainly doesn’t have to be the case for all. In fact, some parents are still able to work a full 40 hours per week.
Homeschooling doesn’t have to be a full-time job.
This may seem impossible, considering public education generally comprises a full-time schedule as well. Actually, though, the core learning and instructive parts of public education take up less of a child’s day than you might think. With lunch, breaks, games, and transition times, children do not spend the entire day learning when they are at school. This means that, for homeschooling, a steady 20 hours per week of one-on-one attention could suffice.
With teaching aides like our phonics reading program, parents can maximize the use of their homeschool hours while working a career at the same time.
