The 25 Gifts of Homeschooling: The Gift of Health
4. Homeschooling is the Gift of Health
Homeschooling is a gift for our children's mental health, giving them safety, security and confidence, and it’s also good for their bodies. Sleep is vital, particularly with teens. Homeschooling families can adapt their school day to meet sleep needs. Nutrition is improved by eating healthy food at home. A recent study even found that homeschoolers pack on fewer pounds than public schoolers, so homeschooling may help combat obesity! Homeschoolers are more active, without being trapped at a desk, or stuck doing hours of homework each evening. They can continue to learn when mildly under-the-weather, but don’t risk failing when serious illness occurs.
