I think it's great for those families that feel it is best. And has a parent who is educated enough to teach them. And also who can afford

I think that's a silly reason to homeschool. Your child is a LOT more likely to be hurt in a car accident.

Fack, I am thinking about it now too.
Then I remember that I could not keep my sanity and home school, I would have to pick one or the other.
I choose sanity.

But homeschooling is great if you educated enough to do it. But I don't believe most people are.

I think choosing to homeschool out of fear is not good for your kids.
will you not allow them outdoors? in a car? mall? movie theatre? swimming pool?

I don't think you should home school your children.

I think it's a knee jerk reaction and should only be done as a last resort by someone who is qualified.

You can't be with your children for the rest of their lives.

Do you think you are capable of giving your child the best education?



Don't do it because you want to shelter your kid from the world.

Honestly, my DD's teacher sent a letter home explaining that the school was extremely safe and that she would put the kids before herself. Those are bold words to say in my opinion, to basically tell me that if anything occurred, she would be the first to protect my child and put herself in harms way. It's great for those who can home school, but your child is going to live in a bubble or be anti social if you don't let them leave the house, because those violent acts can happen anywhere; soccer fields, malls, school, playgrounds, businesses, etc.

Plus will your children not go to other kids' house? They would need socialization if you homeschool
