The Pros of Homeschooling

Home education can be a productive and exciting experience for you, the parent, and your kids. Here are the benefits.

The Flexibility to Plan Your Schedule

Homeschooling allows you to plan daily activities, ensuring that you have time to do everything else while still educating your child. You can still pick up the groceries, visit the laundromat AND teach your kids. It doesn’t end there!

Strengthens Parent-Child Bond

Relationships are stronger and better when there is communication, companionship, and support. You can achieve all of these fairly easily when you homeschool.

The Cons of Homeschooling: Little to No Personal Time

If you plan to homeschool your children, you should also know that you will have less time for yourself. Homeschooling is a tiring, time-consuming job.

Reduced Social Interaction 

Social interactions are crucial to child development—for example, classroom conversations, group assignments, dance rehearsals, workshop classes, etc. Your child will miss out on all of these.
