In Focus: Why Miriam Quiambao Decided To Give Homeschooling A Shot For Her Son

Some parents have second thoughts on homeschooling their children as it’s far different from the traditional set-up of learning in a classroom environment and socializing with other people.

Miriam Quiambao once decided to give it a shot, however, and it turned out to be a good decision for her first son Josh. At the Global Homeschool Conference 2019, the former beauty queen told us why moms should consider it for their kids. Here’s what she shared with us!

Children are a reward from the Lord. I am blessed for the gift of having a son in Joshua, my first child. Although he did not come from my womb, my love for him was birthed deep in my heart. So deep that I feel he is my own child. My first son — mine to me. . I always cherish the times we spend cuddling, doing tickle fights, painting together, cooking and baking together, walking the dog together, playing at Timezone together, doing grocery shopping together, traveling together, reading the bible and doing devotions together, most especially the numerous real and imaginary adventures we have together as mother and son. I’m so excited to be starting a new journey of homeschooling with you. . @joshyroberto, you are suuuuper special and very much loved by God, Mommy and Daddy. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. 😘❤️ . #MyFirstSon #MyLittleCuchinillo #MiracleOfAdoption #HomeschoolGlobalPh #Joshua10yr8mo #MotherAndSonLove . @homeschoolglobal

You get to spend more time with your children. “When I homeschooled my son, we got to spend a lot of time together and I was able to pass on the values that we want for him better,” she says. “That was when I got to know him more. Our relationship deepened.” 

You can still improve their social skills. “We allowed him to meet up with friends on certain days but we also introduced them to learning groups,” continues Miriam. 

It can help instill the love of learning in them. “Us being parents, we want the best for our children because we love them the most,” she declares. “Through homeschooling, we get to focus on them more and become more hands-on in helping them learn.”
