Homeschool Without Borders provides support system for homeschooling parents

CARBONDALE, Ill. (KBSI) – More and more families are choosing to home school their kids, rather than send them off to traditional schools.

For parents making the change for the first time, it may be a hard transition.

The Homeschool Without Borders monthly meeting is a way to ease parents into homeschooling by providing a support system.

“So, even though it’s not true, that homeschooling just means sitting at the kitchen table with your child. Homeschooling is a very dynamic experience,” said Renee Schwartz with Homeschool Without Borders. “You’re out and about in the community. Children are interacting with children of various ages many different adults that they’re having conversations with.”

Homeschool Without Borders brings several families from the community together to help parents learn best practices for teaching their children.

This event takes place at the Carbondale Public Library every second Monday from 6-7 p.m.
