After an issue at my daughter’s preschool (which I will not go into on my blog), I’m trying to open my mind to new ideas.
How does a family decide that they are ready to home school their kids? Were they raised in a home schooled environment? Is it a religious reason? Are they fed up with the public schools?
I’ve always been on the, “Ain’t no way I’m homeschooling my kids” side of the fence. My reasons were part selfish and part concern for their socialization. In my mind’s eye, I can’t see my house turned into a classroom of sorts with little desks and school work plastered to the walls. Is that how a homeschooling home looks?
I tried researching homeschooling online and just got a headache from all of the material out there.
So, what’s your take?
What are the pros and cons of doing it? Is it best to home school for the early years then move to a public/private/parochial school at some magical age?
If you’d never ever home school your kids then why not?
If you are all aboard the homeschooling train then why do you feel that way?
I’m currently sitting on the fence with one leg slightly more on the traditional educational side, but like I said, I’m trying to keep an open mind.
