Pros and Cons of Homeschooling

I love the freedom that homescholing gives our family. There are so many pros and cons of homeschooling.  

Some of the pros are.....

  • We can make our own schedule.
  • We can move at our own pace.
  • We can study what we want to study. (Bible)
  • We can dress how we want to dress.
That is just a short list of pros. 

Some of the cons are.....

  • We have to purchase our own curriculum.
  • There is no real break from our children. (Some people this is not an issue)
  • We don't have a regiment that insist we get dressed daily. (I know silly)
  • If we don't know a subject we might have to find a tutoring, online classes or co-op to help teach it.
What do think the pros and cons are for homeschooling?

Have you seen the new science for kids website?

If you have not been by to check it out, you should stop by. I have really enjoyed going through and seeing all the great science curriculum it filled with. 

The Science4U website states...

"The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital science experiences to early elementary students. "


The Science4U mission is....

The mission of Science4Us is to provide a solid foundation of fundamental science concepts for students in their formative years, on which a deep understanding and interest in science can be built. In order to achieve our goal, Science4Us realizes that the teacher is an integral part of our mission.

I can't wait for my daughter to try this site. They cover subjects like Physical Science, Inquiry Science, Life Science and Earth Space Science.

They have some great interactive demos to try out, too.
