    Default 101 reasons to homeschool!

    I thought it might be nice to open the FIRST thread on the homeschooling forum by posting some really positive things about homeschooling.

    Add on your own, lets see if we can get to 100!

    Nope, not just 100.. 101!!

    There is a GREAT thread on US babycentre, and they aimed at 100, and skyrocketed over 150!

    1. To see them learn and grow without missing a thing!

    2. The zest for learning that children are born with can be nurtured and maintained forever!

    11. You can have more control over what is going into your children's minds.

    12. Everything can be a opportunity to learn, not just when the teacher says it is time to learn.

    13. No wretched school uniforms!

    14. If the child doesn't get something, you can spend enough time on the topic for that child, rather than racing through.
