The reasons for and against homeschooling children a rightly debated topics, but many such debates quickly devolve into a discussion of opinion without much basis in facts. We took a long, hard look at many aspects of homeschooling long before we made the decision that this path is the right one for us to take. Our decision has not been wrought with ease and is certainly not without unique challenges, but the fruits we are already seeing validate for us that this was the right choice. I wish I could say that this is without question the right choice for anyone seeking an alternative to “normal” public school, but in reality, it probably isn’t the best solution for everyone.
This is also not a decision that should be made in haste or as a quick-fix to a looming challenge or problem at your child’s current school. Least of all, this is not a decision that should be made by the child. The child certainly should have some input into the discussion, but in the end it is the parent;s responsibility to choose for their child the best path to follow.
