A homeschool curriculum is one that is provided by a school board for children that can not attend regular class room studies. If for any reason you are not able to place your child in school as required by the laws of the land you are in, you will have the option of a homeschool curriculum. The goal is to ensure that the child receives the education needed no matter what their life circumstances may be. The child may be ill and not able to attend classes daily. Or the whole family may be living in an area where it is not possible to get an education in their mother tongue.
Some parents prefer a homeschool curriculum to ensure they can maintain control over the influences in their children’s lives. They feel that the exposure the children get to the realities of the world may be too harsh or not suitable for them. Learning at home provides shelter from the world and allows the parent to have full control of anything their children learn and are exposed to. This is an issue that many parents will debate and have different views on. Following a basic curriculum will at least provide these children with some of the tools they will need in life.
The homeschool curriculum may make suggestions for social contacts for your children and you should ensure this is carried out. Not all the things a child must learn can be learned alone and social development is very important for them. Sheltering them may keep them safe in some ways while harming them in others.
