Homeschooling

Since last year, the whole family decided to live in UAE. It meant giving up my lucrative job and embracing change once again. Last 2012, our whole family already stayed in UAE but with my pregnancy for our 3rd child, we came back to the Philippines. Before I pulled out my kids from school, they were enrolled in a Montessori school. I am a great believer in the Montessori methods and I am quite satisfied

Before I pulled out my kids from school, they were enrolled in a Montessori school. I am a great believer in the Montessori methods and I am quite satisfied with the maturity and independence they gained from their school.

But since I will be a full-time mom, I thought that I could homeschool my kids since I have been meaning to educate them my own way. I am a Psychology graduate and have invested a decade of my profession in the corporate world. I have always loved child psychology during my undergrad days. I even thought of becoming a guidance counselor after graduation. But life took a different turn after graduation.

So, I took a leap of faith – of following what I should have been meaning to do. When I told my friends and even some of my family members of what I planned to do – I  received very different feedbacks. Most of which are not supportive of the idea of giving up my career and homeschooling my kids. But I was stubborn as hell.

I prepared for months in homeschooling my kids. I e-mailed homeschool providers for queries and quotations, I  read books about education, researched, studied and burned my midnight oils.  When I say I took a leap of faith, it meant that I was courageous enough to adapt independent homeschooling. By that, it means, I did not enroll my kids to a homeschool provider. Of course, by now you have lots of questions. I was just like you, full of questions. Should I or should I not homeschool? Don’t you worry, I will take you to a ride in my journey towards what have been the most satisfying decision that I have made in my life.
