Pros and Cons of Homeschooling

I want to share some of the pros and cons of homeschooling as I see them now so that you can help make an informed decision on what is best for your family.

Pros of Homeschooling

For me, the pros of homeschooling far outweigh the cons. Otherwise, I would have put them back in a public or charter school long ago! Here are some of the things our family loves about homeschooling.

Kids aren’t exposed to adult issues

There are a lot of adult issues, including abuse, that become glaringly obvious in a public school setting, even for children as young as kindergarten.

My kids are best friends

If they were in public school, this age gap would mean they wouldn’t get to spend much time together. Because they are home together all day, they have become each other’s best friends.

Cons of Homeschooling

Now, before you think homeschooling is all roses, there are some cons as well. It’s not perfect, and sometimes it can be difficult.

You never get a break

Our family is together almost all of the time. That leaves very little time for mental health breaks.

You have to be both parent and teacher

You and your child have to work together not just about chores or sibling relationships but also for their education. Just like you don’t get a break from them, they don’t get a break from you.
