It seems as if there are as many reasons for homeschooling as there are parents. Some parents know without a doubt when their first child is born they want to teach their children themselves. Others don't think about it until their child is of age to start preschool or kindergarten. Some kids have already gone to public or private schools before the parents decide that homeschooling would be better. Despite the reasoning behind the choice, all families can benefit from homeschooling. For families who may be on the fence as to whether or not homeschool, the following are advantages that many other families have found with schooling from home.

This can strengthen the bond between the children and parents-even the parent that works out of the home. The parent teaching the children is able to guide and nurture their children's growth, natural inquisitive nature, and help the children to discover things for themselves at the child's own pace. Learning can be fun, and oftentimes the same lessons can be used for different aged children.
