Benefits of homeschooling

Well, I think the pros of homeschooling your kids are that you have the opportunity to be with your kids. It's one of the main reasons I home schooled my kids, is I wanted the best of them. And the best of them was the time between 8 and 3 when they would have been in school. And that's one of the biggest pros of homeschooling your kids, for me. The other pro is that you have the opportunity to tailor an education for that child. If that child is in the 3rd grade but they're ready for 7th grade math, then you do 7th grade math. If that child is in the 6th grade and they really hate history, well you can tie history to some other thing that they like. One of my boys lived ancient weapons; didn't want to learn about history, but loved weapons. So that was the lens that we looked at history through. So you can make learning attractive to your child that you might not be able to in a traditional way.
