To Homeschool or not to Homeschool

Questions About Homeschooling

            If you are considering homeschooling, the first thing I would recommend is to take a long hard look at your situation. Don’t get me wrong, I think homeschooling could be the best education for your child, but I also believe that homeschooling isn’t for everyone. Count the cost.

How committed are you to the venture? Are you willing to set aside your own agenda, if schooling your child requires it? How does your spouse feel about the idea? I strongly urge that both parents be committed to homeschooling otherwise one parent may wind up carrying the whole load. If you choose to homeschool, be aware that the chores of running your household may have to be done differently or shared differently between all in the family.

Do you need to work outside the home? While I have seen some people do it brilliantly, I’ve seen others drown in the situation. Do you think you can take on the extra responsibility? Pray for the Lord’s guidance. He will show you whether this is a good direction for your family.
