Default Why do some parents prefer to homeschool their kids?

I was just thinking of this idea. If a child is homeschooled, there are many things he might miss. He'd have less chances of having friends, and I don't know. Will it not affect his confidence? It's like turning 2 again when he reaches college, don't you think?

I am not a homeschooler but have many friends that are. One I know primarily homeschools so her family has the flexibility to travel. Just thinking of her I can think that children who ARENT homeschooled are missing out!

There are many many organizations/groups dedicated to homeschool families that allow them to pool resources, and provide many enriching opportunites to socialize.

Sure you will find people who are extreme in some way-like isolating their children from other people or crazy teaching, but that really isnt the norm...

Wow, good to know that. I had no idea, but thinking of the activities they do to so make up for what we (or I) think they might be missing is exciting. Seems you are right. It's the other way around.

I know someone who homeschools their daughter, but I believe it's due to some condition. She kind of experience isolation, like what you mentioned.

I find that each family homeschools for different reasons. I really wanted to send my son to school and he have a great experience that was not the case. let me start by saying he is a genius and that is not me bragging that is him being tested by a professional and not by the school system although his tcap scores for the state came back as him ranking in the top 3% for the state of TN meaning just 3 other people in the state scored higher then he did. So why was he flunking language arts which he reads at a college level and understands. BORED. BORED. BORED. You see most schools teach to the 98% the 2% (super nova smart kids) get left out well maybe there is a gifted class 2 days a week but other then that they were numb with boredom and in the box thinking. So we pulled him out and he know homeschools himself with a 1 day a week going to a coop where he socializes. And he does have friends his generation hangs out online. His best friend is in Maine. Most kids his age are very inmature and disrespectful he really does not like hanging out with them. Also because we live in a dual enrolling state he will finish some of his college courses while finishing his high school and those college courses will count towards his high school credits. He know what he wants to study in college so we gear his school towards that. I am so excited for him. That is are reason.

Default Homeschooling

I was just curious! What are you going to do if your child is happened to be sick? Will you send him to school? I assume that no, but perhaps it's can be! In this case, homeschooling is the best way out of the situation. There are thousands of different services https://edureviewer.com/ that can help your child to study at school, to have an essay writing and other, but you should choose what is better for him or her.
