    Who says that it is.

    A child home-schooled is missing out on the competitive aspects and challenges of learning all of the life skills that the child will require, down the road in life, such as how to get along with others in a competitive environment.

    Granted, home schooling gives a child a one on one environment which might help it learn better and or faster, but will the learning be equivalent to that of the schooling system as far as quality of learning in all subject matters.

    I see home schooling as a detriment to the child rather than a benefit.

    Home schooling may only be beneficial to your children's education if your school district has many problems such as crime, high teacher-student ratio,or doesn't provide the coursework that your family values.
    many christian parents have started their own homeschooling groups geared toward a christian view. This isn't possible in a public school environment, or in a town that doesn't have an accredited christian school.
    On the other hand,I believe children need to socialize as much as possible,so being totally homeschooled and only having contact with family or those in the group is a detriment.

    There are several reasons why I think home schooling is better for my children's education:
    a. Their older sister died of cancer and my husband and I believe they needed a safe and secure environment to deal with the subject of death and sorrow. We wanted to feel free to talk about their sister at any time of the day, and to weep if we needed to.
    b. Our children were ready to read when they were four years of age - they're blessed with the ability to read and understand language and its symbols.
    c. The children get to work on the subjects and the areas of learning they are geared toward and are interested in. They are not held back by an agenda of any kind except for what we, their parents, believe is best for them.
    d. Our children are not placed very often in a situation where they have to defend themselves in a peer-only setting.
    e. They get along with people - children and adults of all ages of any skin color - without a problem.
    f. They are learning how to help at home, plan and prepare meals, drop everything to serve someone else when something comes up, practice skills on piano and ballet during the day, and so many more skills.
    g. And the biggest reason of all - we get to point our children to Christ, their Savior, many times a day...

    Home schooling could be a good thing for those that can't afford private schools, given the state of public schools.  The problem is, all the religious wackos give home schooling a bad name.

    Here's the hub I wrote on this subject:

    However, though I had a wonderful homeschooling experience, it's not for everybody...parents have to be motivated to continue searching out opportunities for their children, they can't just sit back and assume someone else is doing it. As far as the social aspect that it seems everyone uses against homeschooling...I personally had a lot more interaction with a variety of people in a variety of situations and from a wide range of social backgrounds when I was homeschooled, when I went to public school my social interactions were limited to the other kids in my school and my teachers.

    I think homeschooling is a personal choice that every family needs to consider.  I don't necessarily encourage it, but I don't discourage it either.  I have seen homeschooling for families that have certainly benefited the children, and I have seen cases that, in my opinion, were not providing everything that the children needed.  It is a huge commitment for families and before parents decide to homeschool, they should check into the requirements to be sure it is something that is realistic for their families.
