This is a very good question! In my life experience so far, it appears that absentee parents and uneducated parents are a major reason that children don’t value education. This is not always true but very common. Children from these families are more likely to be in the workforce if not parents themselves by the time their peers have finished a Bachelor’s degree. Clearly, these are characteristics that can be learned in formal education but do need to be developed in such a process. A persons ambition and desire to succeed has little to do with education but rather their character and personality. There are a few parent and teacher resources, but most pertain to the site itself. Overall this website is simple, but it is free and offers so many games your toddler will be bound to find one that they love.
Tim, you sound like an amazing father and your kids are lucky to have you. Because of our country’s quest for academic rigor at younger ages, elementary schools (and even preschools) feel pressured to teach in ways that are not developmentally appropriate. You are so right that children learn in different ways and different rates. A one-size-fits-all approach only makes kids feel inadequate. It gets parents needlessly worried. Because teachers are now focused on test scores and not the whole child, it’s so important that parents celebrate their youngsters’ uniqueness. Because my son has autism, I heard so many pessimistic comments from professionals about him, making it seem he had no future. Luckily, I just tuned them out and forged ahead. He’s now 17 with his sights set on college and a career in engineering. You are so right; parents are the key! Thanks for reading and enjoy your kids.
Therefore, I think it is fair to say that home school is a proper alternative for those who don’t care for such socialization.” Not only that, but lower level education (other than Prep schools which again, are expensive and not an option for everyone) doesn’t even come close to properly preparing students for college.
Thank-you Kylyssa for sharing these incredible and heart rendering experiences. I hope that your readers will gain the insights necessary to a fuller understanding of this epedemic in America and further will gain empathy and compassion for Homeless PEOPLE. Many Blessings!
While a new United Nations study shows that the global poverty rate could be more than halved if all adults completed secondary school, data show high out-of-school rates in many countries, making it likely that education completion levels will remain well below that target for generations.
