How To Become A Confident & Effective Homeschooling or Distance Learning Parent In This Time of Pandemic

2020 was so full of surprises. From volcanic ashes, earthquakes, and a deadly virus that has single-handedly stopped all school classes all over the world. While some schools held their graduations via Zoom calls, some schools passed all students without even taking the exams.

Like everyone else, your life was probably on auto-pilot, and putting your kids in the same school this coming school year was a no-brainer. But because of this infectious and dangerous virus spreading around the world, your plans have changed. 

Why? Because you want your kids to be SAFE. And the fact that you’re reading this means you actually want what’s best for your child. And whether you believe it or not, your child always feels better & safer at HOME.

So there lies another problem.  KAYA KO BA ‘TO?

Am I equipped enough to teach my children what I should be teaching them?

Can I commit to teach my child for one whole school year? Or even beyond?

Where do I buy the patience to teach my kids?

How can I help my child with her distance learning?

If you asked all these questions, then keep reading because there’s no other learning event in the country that will help you become a confident & effective parent who teaches his or her kids. And we know you’re here right now because you have one major problem…

Do I Really Have What It Takes to Teach My Child and Support His Learning?

You’ve already checked out all the available homeschooling programs out there, you’ve also looked for traditional schools that offer learning from home, and you’ve probably watched all Youtube vlogs out there that talk about homeschooling or distance learning. Except that no matter how much research you make or how many videos you watch, you feel that there’s still something missing.

After 7 years of doing homeschooling events and conferences, and guiding parents in their homeschooling journey, with only the best resources that we can find, we’ve realized that the #1 problem of most parents who are considering homeschooling—and now, because of COVID-19, many parents will deal with helping teach their kids via distance learning—is… they are not confident that they can be the best teachers for their children!

And it’s not your fault. 

You see, while we were growing up, we were also taught by teachers inside school while our parents were busy working. We were wired to think that traditional schooling is the only best option out there for our children.

But think about this:  Who knows your children better? A teacher who handles 20-40 students at a time (online, these days) or a parent who has taken care of their child for so many years?

The only difference is training and education. So yes… Without the proper training, education, or help, it will take you years to years of trial and error to teach your child efficiently, let alone, parent them at the same time.

Without proper guidance, education, or training, here’s what will probably happen to you:

  • ​You’ll sadly QUESTION your parenting skills because you compare yourself to others and they seem to be doing a lot better than you in that area.
  • You’ll DOUBT yourself always and question yourself whether what you’re doing or how you’re handing things is right or not.
  • You’ll always ENVY those other parents who seem to have things  all “normal” and sailing smoothly while teaching and parenting their children.
  • You’ll forever GIVE UP on yourself becoming the best parent teacher for your children because you think teachers are always better than parents and you believe you can’t teach old dogs new tricks.

You have to make this work. And you know that. Because, deep inside, you’re not just doing this for yourself…  You’re doing this for your children.

We feel you! And we’re here to tell you that you are not alone in this journey. Remember this: It’s not your fault at all.

If homeschooling or teaching your child was that easy, then everyone would be doing it by now. Right? Even we have experienced failures and have embarrassing stories to tell from when we were starting our homeschooling journeys. But still, we’re here. And we’re still homeschooling our kids. And we have been active advocates of this educational option.

Now, we want to share with you the things that worked for us and other homeschooling parents because homeschooling changed our lives… And it will change yours as well.
