    This is the beginning of a movement that all children have been waiting for! I’m one of them.

    I am a firm believer that if a child have to attend school and then again go to tution teacher, the child does not enjoy childhood and is mostly not interested in learning. Any child has his own way of learning and unless the child does not harm anybody physically or emotionally the child should be allowed to explore his world. He has his own way of learning, many times much better than our’s. Every child is an unique personality with capacity, likes and dislikes, interest and moods. The parent or elder has to play the role of facilitator and resource provider and child can take his journey very well. If I can be of any help I am willing to give. I am from Mumbai and educational and management consultant.

    We are blessed with two sons. Elder one is in 3rd grade and younger one is in Kinder Garden (UKG).

    I’m interested in homeschooling, I have just started collecting info on how to go about homeschooling my children. I have so many questions

    1. If my children undergo homeschooling, is there any restriction in higher studies or if they have to switch back to regular school?

    2. Can they write exams like Olympiads in homeschooling?

    3. Can we teach them at our home or do we have to be part of some alternate schools?

    4. What are the benefits of homeschooling?

    5. What are the difficulties ?

    Please share your experience and suggestions.

  24. Bhavishya Dua October 24, 2014 at 3:27 am #

    Hi Everyone ,
    This is a really helpful platform .It surely is and will bring together all home schooling parents and hopefully sometime soon the home schooled kids as well on a different platform. So thank you for this slowly bringing together all scattered gems.
    My name is Bhavishya and I am a father of 5 year old daughter , who is being home schooled by both of us( me and my wife ). A long way to go 3 of us are enjoying it and are determined . Although we surely will need support in terms of sharing experiences and resources from all the members out here.
    We are based in Dehradun ,I am chef turned horticulturist and my wife had been working with kids with special needs for some time.
    Good Luck and regards

    My Son is 9 years old and is an archer. He has several national accolades at his age level to his credit. thinking of moving him to NIOS from CBSE after a year, to focus better on his Archery. At the same time, I also do not want him to miss the socialising skills and childhood enjoyment that a school gives a child. I wanted to know if there any Open School in Chennai, especially for children who have special talents and want to focus on that?
    Will be grateful for any such information.

    Dear Ma’am,

    I have been highly inspired by your story as somewhere I too never agreed in the so called mass production the education system of today. I was very keen on home schooling my 7 yo son but had to give in to societal pressure also my own insecurities abt whether my decision would be right or wrong. Through this 1 year though he loves his school & teachers I dont see any personal growth in his learning graph…. wanted to get in touch with you for guidance. Hopeful to hear from you.
    Please help.
