Real Story of My Shy Daughter

I always have to speak for her, anything she wanted and this I could not handle. I saw an advert in the S A India magazine for homeschooling with Brainline. I looked at the advert and I did show it to my daughter. I asked her what she thought about it. She looked keen and quite interested and could have more time to religious studies. Being a muslim we require to pray five times a day. It is compulsory.


By the time my daughter got back from school it is four o'clock. Her meal times was disrupted, her prayer times were missed. She was more tired with lots of homework, sleeping late and I was not at all happy with this kind of pressure on children.

This year 2011 I have registered with Brainline grade 6 and today I'm quite happy to see my daughter work so well independently. She is no more the shy girl. I can leave her alone for a few hours to run my errands. Her knowledge has grown enormously. Lots of use of dictionary. She reads more books. Her understanding of each subject has grown so much. She feels proud to practice her learnings. Practicing your knowledge is more important than just reading and wanting a certificate at the end of the year.

She has her meals on time.Her prayers are on time. Sleeps early and sleeps well. A full day, very happy, very discipline. I think we have made the right choice. Three important things to be noted : Meals and sleep and prayer. Socializing with her school friends in the weekend.

Great life. Life is fun and we should enjoy it the proper way. If you want a disciplined child then try this home schooling. It's great. No competition.
