What are some pros and cons for homeschooling your child?


I've noticed in my adult years that quite a bit of what's being taught in some schools is inaccurate information. Some of this bad information was not unlearned until I went to college. Some I am still trying to unlearn. So I would like to know what are the benefits and pitfalls of doing homeschooling for your children

    Some good points to consider here. Prioritizing the pros and cons according to parents' insight of children's needs would be helpful in tailoring their program.

    These are all important considerations. Concerns over socialization have largely been disproved. Many home ed students are far ahead of other students socially. The huge opportunity to help them learn to love learning is a lifelong benefit.

    An Every Day Story's blog post titled Why Sociaisation Is An Issue For Homeschoolers is a good discussion with interesting comments that any parent could find useful. Can't put whole link, it's easy to find: aneverydaystory…/socialisation-homeschool

    There is a such thing as bad information if the information being shared is false. There is truth and there is false teachings.

    8. You can't pass the buck and get out of an assignment by not volunteering. When there's only a few of you...you ALWAYS get your turn.

    9. It can be hard to be self motivated

    10. It might be harder to get involved into sports
