I want to homeschool. My child isn't school age yet, but I'm hoping to practice during the "preschool phase" because kids learn the most in their younger years up to around age 7. I think it really depends on your reasoning for homeschooling.

We've been debating homeschool for our daughter. She's a real nature lover, so keeping her in a classroom seems cruel.

I plan to! We have a 4 yo, a 2 yo, and a 5 mo old, so we've started fun activities with the two older ones and they love it! My 4 yo does a few worksheets but nothing long winded, she enjoys it so much she actually reminds me if we skip a day!

I'm going to homeschool but I think they need to be around other children. I'm planning on doing outside activities, honestly, parents are the best teacher. Classrooms have 30+ kids, teachers are mean, and sickness is everywhere. I want to go to the zoo for field trips; I want to make memories and learn. I'm exploring online education like K12 or a local program through our city. I don't have the time to plan everything on my own, I definitely need help with the curriculum.

My sister in law homeschools her 3 kids because her autistic son was bullied so much while he was in school. I am considering home school for at least the first 3 years as that time is so important to child's mentality and personality development. I want to instill certain values like kindness, hard work and gratitude in my child. Also, want to teach you don't have to be blindly obedient.

We are going to homeschool because of bullies and germs. I also don't think my child can get a quality education in today's public schools with all the constant testing and huge class sizes. My fear is that they will not get enough time with other kids. I want to make sure they socialize enough and know how to work with people. We'll have to go to the library or other kids activities around town.

When we started having kids, I was 18. I didn't homeschool my oldest children. Now the oldest is in high school/college, I took him out of traditional high school in 9th grade after coming across some bad apples. He attends an online program while attending college full-time, he'll graduate high school with a college degree. My oldest daughter will start online junior high next fall, my youngest daughter will continue in a charter school until 8th grade before moving to the online high school. 

My unborn baby, will likely always be homeschooled. After my experience with school with my three older ones, I think the public school system has some serious issues. The bullies are hard to deal with, the teachers are too overworked with too many kids, children are always tested... there is a better way. Lucky for me, I live in a very progressive state that has a lot of options for parents. Check out what your city or state offers. Or check out K12 online. There are options out there.
