Home schooling is a choice made by parents to provide education to their children in their own home.There are many advantages to home schooling. With more personal attention, children often understand the material more quickly instead of lagging behind because they don't understand. Parents also like more time together as a family, instead of a few hurried hours in the evening.
Children are safe in a home school situation. They're also less likely to be influenced by peer pressure.In addition, parents get to choose their children's curriculum and work at each child's own pace.
If your child previously went to a public school, be sure to pay a visit to the school's office and withdraw your child. Otherwise,he / she will still be marked as absent. Take the time to do the research and weigh the pro's and con's. Only you can make the choice whether or not homeschooling is right for you and your family.
Below are several resources I've listed that contains vast information to supply all your homeschooling needs, questions, and concerns before you make that final decision. There are also many books and guides available that can be very helpful to parents who teach and who are thinking of teaching their kid's at home.
One book / guide that I found very useful is "Homeschooling Guidebook" this book was written by two parents that made the decision to homeschool their children and they have compiled a lot of good information from their experience in educating their children at home. www.Homeschool.com (provide's current newsletters, magazines, free curriculum, contests and scholarships, tip of the week, a kid safe browser, speed reading, online courses, curriculum software store, and much much more). homeschoolcentral.com is a great resource also.
My daughter is in the 8th grade and I have found a lot of wonderful information here that has helped me to become a better homeschooling parent.Remember; if ever you decide homeschooling isn't right for your family, you always have the option of enrolling them back into their previous school.
