It used to be that homeschooling had a certain stigma to it. When people heard the word, they pictured a child isolated at home from children his age and indoctrinated into his parents’ extremist views. However, homeschooling has steadily grown in popularity over the years, and it’s widely acknowledged now that homeschooling provides many benefits.
If your child is having trouble in school, you may want to try homeschooling for a little bit to get him caught up for his grade level, and then see at that point what he wants to do. Every child is different. Some children love homeschool, and others can’t stand the idea of not being able to be with their friends and missing out on other beloved social interactions. I personally think it’s worth a try to see if it’s the right thing for you and your child.
