The growing trend that favors home schooling is not the reason why we chose to homeschool our son. There are a lot of issues surrounding the advantages and disadvantages of both traditional and home schooling. While I do not wish to criticize one over the other, it is important to make it clear that it really is up to the parents and their resolve.
Parents have to be sold out to the channel for it to be effective. If they choose to homeschool, but are not willing to pay the price, then the homeschooling parent might as well find a job and send the child off to a traditional school.
Both traditional and homeschooling methods have one motivating factor – to help build the children’s future. I will later discuss further in another post some controversial issues that divide traditional and homeschooling families.
