But...I’m Not a Homeschooler

Not everyone can or wants to homeschool and you may think that there’s no place for you at The Wandering Homeschooler. Not so! 

In my opinion, a child’s education is the responsibility of their parents. Moms and Dads, the buck stops with you. BUT, how you choose to go about that and who you choose to partner with is in your hands. There's public school, private school, hybrid school, homeschool, unschool, or some mix thereof. In the end, what really matters is that you take responsibility for and you’re an active participant in whatever they’re learning.

So, even if you aren’t a homeschooler, there are opportunities for you to either supplement what your child is learning in school or teach them things they aren’t being taught in school but are important to you.

Not only is this a great way to bond, but it’s so important to instill in them the idea that learning is lifelong and isn’t confined to the walls of a building. Education isn’t just about textbooks, facts, and stats, but includes relationships, morals, good character, and more. We don’t want them to just read about the world, we want them to explore and experience it for themselves!

No matter where you are in your education journey, I hope you’re encouraged to make the most of it. Be proactive and intentional and make time for adventure. Your kids will love you for it and you might just have some fun along the way. ;)
