Learning at Their Own Pace Sometimes teachers in public school just complete what the state requires of them Children can get lost in the shuffle of trying to get all the requirements covered At home, the children can learn at their own pace and take the time they need in order to expand on concepts they do not understand completely

An Unsupportive Family Family members may feel as though you are hurting your child by not enrolling them in a public school system Some homeschooled families receive ridicule about their ways If children are perceived as smart by family members, they think that the child needs to be placed into public schooling; however, couldnt it be the parents who help make that child smart ?

Parents will be forced to dedicate themselves to their teaching and have to
  • 20. Their Choice Some homeschooled children may want to be placed in public schools and not be forced to be taught at home by their parent Their parents teaching methods might not be working for the way that they learn (may be non-energetic, boring, and stern in their teaching ways) They may want to participate in sports at school They may want to experience pubic schools for themselves
