    every coin has two sides.
  • ▪ Parents may not get enough time for their work
    ▪ Parents may loose their personal space
    ▪ Parents take the whole responsibility for educating their kids
    ▪ Parents may find difficult to control over their kids
    ▪Children may find hard to compare them with others
    ▪ Narrow views may happen to some kids

    homeschooling education is NOT for everybody

    Will my children lack social experience ?
    Will my children be accepted in the work environment in the future ?

    — Dr. Jay Wile
  • A study from Lawrence Rudnershows
    the higher you score on the DSS scale, the more educated you are.
  • “Homeschooled students tend to have a broader age-range of friends than their schooled peers, which may encourage maturity and leadership skills.”
    — Dr. Linda Montgomery
  • Dr. Raymond Moore concludes that children are best socialized by parents not other children after analyzing over 8,000 early childhood studies.
  • “They have the discipline to either run their own business or become quite focused employees.”
