Our children attended private school for two and a half years, until we decided to homeschool them. I have been homeschooling for one and a half years now. I have had experience both Public School mom and homeschool mom. I have experienced both sides of the ongoing Homeschool vs Public School debate.
When you homeschool you are able to choose the child’s curriculum and so you know what your child is learning every day. You know your child is to teach religious and moral code. You know your child is to teach age-appropriate curriculum.
child benefit from one on one instruction. If he struggles to understand the concept, you can take however long he needs. So the child never feels like he’s stupid, or “slow”. Identity and self-confidence are built, instead of being destroyed by the public school system.
By Homeschooling you know that your children are safe and not victims of bullying or other forms of abuse. This is not something to be taken lightly. The extreme consequence of bullying is Child Suicide. You also know that they are respected and treated in a positive environment that has their interests at heart. Back their self-esteem is being built not deleted.
The joy you will feel like you and your children set out on homeschool journey, is indescribable. You will witness your family draw closer and loving each other’s company. Is not this the way childhood was meant to be?
If you weigh the pro and cons of homeschooling, I hope you will find, as we have, the way ahead is clear to you. Homeschooling offers child so much more than Public schooling.
But at the end of the day, it really depends on what you want for your child, and what you want your kids exposed to. The question you need to answer is: “What is best for my child?”
For us the answer, “Home School” every time!
