How to raise creative children

As our children grow up, we tend to have a preconceived idea of skills that we need to teach them: how to tell the time, how to tie their shoelaces, how to ride a bicycle, why it’s important to be kind and respectful to others, how to wash the dishes and so forth. What isn’t always made top priority is how to encourage their creative side. And creativity is not limited to artistic skills like painting, writing and decorating a cake – it also relates to problem-solving, an ability that will help them countless times in life.

Homeschooling and socialisation

A substantial amount of studies and reports into homeschooling and socialisation have been conducted in recent years, many finding that homeschooled children are often better socialised than those attending mainstream school as their interaction is not limited to children of the same age, same level of education and same demographic. Due to the flexibility of their timetable, homeschooled children are often able to participate in more extra-curricular activities on a more regular basis.
