My husband and I have been thinking about home schooling our 6 year old daughter. She is doing ok in school, however we are not pleased with the school she is currently attending. How do you feel about home schooling?
Dear School Mom,
This is a tricky subject. Being a former elementary school teacher, I believe in public education. However, I understand that times have changed. Research has shown that some adults who were home schooled found it awkward when going to college or entering the workforce. Look into other alternatives to traditional schools such as private, Montessori or charter schools. Also look into groups that offer home school support and activities. After speaking to other moms that have home schooled their kids, I am sure you will have better insight. Ultimately the choice is yours. Parents know their children best. We only want the very best for our children!
