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 was homeschooled and it was the best choice my parents did looking back (Now that I'm grown up)lol. You should give it a try.

I'm glad that you liked being homeschool, @snowymilk. I have just been watching some YouTubers who does the same thing to their kids, and they seem so sweet and respectful. There are some online resources I found too that talk about the benefits of homeschooling, so I might lean towards it.

I think this is due to the fact that some parents do not take schools seriously, so they teach children at home, I want to advise you on an excellent service Edusson.com, where your child will learn to write essays and reviews, I think it will be useful for you.
