The Pros and Cons of Unschooling

Most parents love to see their children engaged in intellectual activities that interest them, whether it’s reading a historical novel, creating a web page, learning about the physics of space travel, or something else entirely. But some parents take this to a whole new level by forgoing traditional schooling and instead letting their children choose what they learn. This approach is often referred to as “unschooling.” What is unschooling? Unschooling is similar to home schooling in that children learn at home but, rather than being taught by their parents, they essentially teach themselves.

IXL for the Homeschooler

Being a parent to your children is a full-time job, so when you’re also their teacher, it can feel like working overtime! IXL is happy to support you in this challenging but important role. Many homeschoolers use our family membership plan as part of their daily lessons. Here are few positive things we’ve heard from homeschool families: 1. Use a single math practice solution for all of your children. You get access to all grade levels on IXL, which is perfect for instructing children of various ages and skill levels. This also means that the program “grows” with your children as they progress, without you having to purchase new materials or pay for access to more advanced grade levels. At the same time, each child receives his or her own profile, so you can keep track of his or her individual progress.
