I have been a home school mom for ten years. Obviously, my answer is biased. However, I can say that there are definite pros and con to home schooling your children
Please note that there were two other CONS listed here not given by this contributor. I tried to cut and paste them to separate them from my own comments and lost them. I apologize to the contributor.
I agree with the young woman below with one exception: While many things depend upon the parent, it also depends upon the parents' time and economic abilities. We don't have a lot of money and so cannot take advantage of all that is available in our community. I have to work part-time, so there are certain groups my kids can't go to simply by virtue of not having a ride.
It is simply something you must consider when making the decision to home school. We are very involved parents, naturally. I would say 99% of home school parents are very involved and invested in their children's education.
I am a teenager who was home schooled until this year and I have to refine this list:
Homeschooling has some of the same advantages as traditional schooling. Some of the pros of homeschooling are that the child gets more one on one attention from the instructor. The curriculum is similar to that of traditional school. The parents can homeschool their child if they are qualified. The parent can see up close and personal how their child is progressing. One major cons of homeschooling is that the child does not receive the same social interaction with other children as they would if they were attending traditional schooling. Homeschooling is about making the child and the parent comfortable with the learning environment.
