Making a choice about your child’s schooling takes a lot of thinking and consideration. You need to decide what is the absolute best decision for your child. I hope that the following information about homeschooling will help to guide you in your decision making.
You decide what your child learns, and when they learn it. This is, I believe, the biggest pro for homeschooling. You decide whether you want your child to learn evolution or creation, Christianity or Islam or no religion, all of the choices are left up to you!
You learn along with you child. You and your child will grow closer to each other as you learn together, and spend practically all day every day together.
In addition to this your child will have your undivided attention compared to being in a classroom with thirty other students.
Your child will not have the same social life that they would have if they went to a different school. This is, I believe, the biggest con for homeschooling. Your child will not be as comfortable around people other than their family, because they will not be hanging out with other people on a regular basis.
You will need to make a big time commitment. You will be dedicating many hours each day to teaching your child, and therefore will not have as much time left for other things.
No matter what decision you end up making, I hope that you will give this important decision an incredible amount of thought.
