I really wish I read something like this before I started homeschooling. It can take a family many years to decide whether they should take the leap to homeschool their children. If you don’t know anyone who homeschools, it is even harder to make the decision.
If you or someone you know is contemplating home education then have a read about the homeschooling pros and cons along with some things to consider before you start.
In this useful article to help you navigate through your decision to homeschool, you will find things that are an advantage to homeschool and some disadvantages to it. Of course, there is always the good, the bad and the ugly to every decision you make. When it comes to your children, it becomes even trickier to come up with an outcome that will be the best for them.
Sometimes the best for you is to not homeschool because it’s easier not to. One thing to consider when deciding to homeschool is that it is just plainly, not easy. It isn’t all cuddles and quality time.
Homeschooling whether there be pros or cons to it is tough and not for everyone. It may definitely be beneficial to you to reach out to others who homeschool even if you don’t know anyone personally. The internet has made it convenient for us to communicate with others with similar interests.
A simple Google search of “homeschool moms in Claremont” or something of that sort will help you find others in your area. You can even do a homeschool search on for a homeschool community on Facebook. Shoot them an email or message with your questions. You can even join and post a question to our very own Facebook Group Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies. We are happy to help.
The very best tool I can leave with you is our Ask a Veteran Homeschooler Series.
Here are the top questions asked by new homeschool moms to veteran homeschool moms. These may really help you with questions you may have about homeschooling in addition to the pros and cons:
- How do you get your husband involved in school?
- How do you cover every subject without taking up the entire day?
- How do you homeschool multiple ages with babies and toddlers?
- How Do You Do It All?!?
- How Do You Get Time To Yourself During the Day?
- What Would You Have Done Differently?
