But aren't there studies on how homeschooled students fare vs traditional students .
Sure you have to go by what's going on at home but there can be a better method.
I think of homeschooling like breastfeeding
Yes, I think it depends of the home.
I met a lady who had a son she was homeschooling. He was six and he still spoke grammatically incorrect, little things that most kids can say correctly. He was also socially awkward, and always wanted to learn something, but then stopped when it became boring or difficult.
That made me think that homeschooling was wrong.
Then I met last year this Russian woman who home schooled her daughter in the US and at the age of 16 she was a sophomore at a community college. I asked her what was her focus when teaching her daughter at home, and she said it was Math.
Homeschooling doesn't appeal me; I'd rather have my future kids study in another country, a country where you learn world history. I dislike how the history subject is handled in this country.....
