When my children were younger, I homeschooled them. We loved it. Unfortunately, I divorced and had to go to a day job and put my children in public school. Thankfully, they’ve had some great schools.
That is not the case now.
So, I’m weighing the options of going back to homeschooling. Their ages are 10,12,13. The oldest is going into 8th grade. Of course we would get very involved in extra curricular activities with other homeschoolers. We’d be very involved in our church.
The community we are in leaves a lot to be desired in the way of morals, ethics and positive influences. The thought of putting my children in a public school in this community for eight full hours a day just sends chills up my spine. Finding other friends and acquaintances that share our belief system is becoming increasingly difficult as time goes on. So, I’m back on the road to find the right thing for my children.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. What are your pros and cons for HSing? Do you HS? Why or Why not?
If we do choose to HS, I will definitely share that experience with you all. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
