With people going into the end of the year, they are re-evaluting their kids schooling Do they want them to stay in public school, private school or even start homeschooling. Some will make list of Pro's and Con's of homeschooling.
When you read through homeschooling sites and blogs you will see how most homeschoolers are very passionate and convicted to homechool. I have don't think I have met any homeschooler who is not convicted to homeschool. Each Homeschooler has a reason for homeschooling. Some homeschool for for religious reasons, some for issue they where having in public school, or even they can't afford the private school anymore,. No matter what reason you choose homeschool, I recommend you make a pro's and con's list to help you see the good and the bad. As much as I love homeschooling there are always bad parts to homeschooling. Specially when you get as the parent get stuck on a math problem and can't even help your child get past it. :^) But that is okay, there are all kinds of places and people out there to help with those things that you as a parent might have trouble with. There is no right way or wrong on how to homeschooling. It is what works for your family.
So if you are one of those who are looking at the end of the first semester and a change be sure to make your pro's and con's list and see what works for your family. Oh and don't forget to include your child in this choice. (Don't let them choose friends over what is best for their education, though.)
