The advantages are, teaching your child they way you want them to be taught, no mean teacher (some are), the child learns quicker, don't worry about snow days, no buses, you know first hand how your child progresses. Disadvantage, no interact with other children, homeschool costs more, child won't listen to you and throws a tantrom, if have younger siblings (not in school), if you need to go somewhere child misses learning, child won't be happy homeschooling.

Ooooo. Kinda' like "describe the effects of E=MC Squared". Homeschooling is an awsome responsibility. The parent(s)become the total source of information, regimentation, reward and punishment, as well as assuring their child(ren) keep up with the grade model. Potentially rewarding beyond grasp. Did I mention, awsome responsibility? Ahh but well worth it if you do the research, not just buy the books/lesson guides. We did it and our son did great (he agrees).

My children home-educated from middle school until graduation. It requires much discipline and organization. The kids will tell you they are glad they were homeschooled. My daughter and another student scored the highest and second highest ever on the GED in this county. She earned several scholorships in colege. Her twin scored quite high on the exam into the Navy. They played sports and took music lesons. They were submersed in youth group. They worked part-time. You get out of it what you put into it.

The greatest advantage, according to some of my friends who home school, is the individual attention the student gets. While you have certain subjects you have to cover, you are given some freedom to tailor it to the pace of the student. The greatest disadvantage is when they go to college, they are not as prepared to meet the challenges that come with being a student in a classroom situation.

The advantage is that we are taking the responsibility that God has given us as parents. Leaving our children 5 days a week for 6 hours a day for the heathens to teach is not what God said for us to do.

Each of my four sons have alternated between public school and homeschool but they've mostly homeschooled. My youngest son, who is 14 now, proved the biggest challenge because he has the most severe learning disabilities but the greatest need for social interaction. We now have an arrangement where he homeschools his core subjects mornings and attends school in the afternoon for his options. This has turned into a very positive experience for him.
