When I was little, I knew a family who home-schooled their children, and they were, back then, the stereotypical home-schooled kids — socially awkward and super-brilliant. But with so many school districts failing, and so many well-educated moms or dads opting to stay home and raise their kids, home-schooling is become more and more popular, and the kids who are being home-schooled are more and more… normal! If you’re been considering the possibility of home-schooling your children, it’s important to know when it’s a good idea, and when it might be more unnecessary work. Here are 7 reasons to consider home-schooling your children.
1. You Live in a Rural Area
If you live in a very rural area, chances are your little ones might spend more time on the bus than they do in the actual classroom. If you have the time, dedication, and expertise, it might be a better idea to home-school your children, rather than send them to school, hours away.
