I strongly feel that you as a parent are responsible for your child’s learning content especially if your child is homeschooling, Which is now our new norm thanks to the pandemic we are living in. This has challenged us as parents in many ways. For those parents that had the help of teachers in the education of our children, we have had to adjust the content we expose ourselves to which in turn becomes the content we expose our kids to. And to those parents who have been doing this homeschooling thing way before the pandemic, I take my hat off to you and keep up the good work.
So your child is an entrepreneur or would like to be an entrepreneur or is the child of an entrepreneur. It is prudent that you include this subject entrepreneurship into his or her homeschool curriculum. Why do you ask? The reason why is because for a very long time formal education dictated that we go to school get the papers we need to go out there and get a job. Employment. But we are in the year 2020 where our kids are doing amazing things. Building businesses from the ground up. Making money we made only after we were adults. They are making a change in society and you know what? It’s our responsibility to support them one hundred and ten percent. Don’t you think?
So what do you do if you know nothing about entrepreneurship? Take a step and inform yourself thoroughly. Take a course and put in the work to self-educate even though it may not be you who teaches it to your child. Then find parents that have a support group. Actually Raising A Mogul is always open to walk with parents that are raising little entrepreneurs. Then when you have included yourself with the entrepreneurial education process, get your child a valid entrepreneurial course. And by valid I mean shop around for an age and content appropriate entrepreneurial course for your child’s needs.
It is so important to include entrepreneurship in your child’s homeschool curriculum. This is because if your child is already a practicing entrepreneur, then all the information they get is practical and it goes towards building your child and their business. And if your child is not yet an entrepreneur, information is power. And that is just what you are doing. Giving your child the power to have a choice between employment and entrepreneurship.
It actually does not need to be a formal inclusion in their homeschool curriculum, you could suggest they volunteer for a local entrepreneur in the weekend and have a conversation with them after on what skills they picked. If you are a patent that is an entrepreneur, put your kid to work and empower them with the skills they need for their business. More importantly, show them the hard bits of entrepreneurship too.
You are Raising a Mogul. And because you are raising this little person that has begun changing the world. It is imperative that we nourish them intellectually. Which is what you are doing by incorporating entrepreneurship in their homeschool curriculum. I would also advise joining a support community group while you are raising this star it gets hectic sometimes use all the support you can get.
