How to Create Independent Learners

Creating independent learners takes time, encouragement, and hard work. But, as our children grow they need to be able to work and learn independently. Independent learning is an important skill and one that will benefit them for a lifetime.

By the time they reach middle school we are educating younger siblings and may be getting overwhelmed with the responsibility of educating so many different grades.
At this point, it may be time to start easing our children into independent learning.  This is an important thing for our children to learn. Independent learning can help them learn responsibility, prepare them for college, and helps them truly engage in the material.
