You’re far from alone if you’re asking this question.

That means the right decision for you, your child, and your entire family.
It’s important to remember that you’re not make this decision lightly.
Whether you plan to homeschool for a short period or for the long haul, you made this decision for a reason and you are called to that determination.
As you continue on this journey you will see changes in yourself, your child, and your perspective!
Some changes may be positive, while others may seem negative at the time.
It’s important to stay true to your “why” and to remember that homeschooling is an exercise in faith.
Homeschooling requires hard work and dedication. Bu it is also incredibly rewarding.
One concern some parents have is how homeschooling will affect their role as a parent.
However, your roles as a parent and teacher are essentially the same.
You are training your child through a relationship and building their knowledge and character for life. If you view homeschooling as simply another stage of paernting, then most of your worries will be solved.
Homeschooling can bring your family closer together as you work, learn, and have fun together on a daily basis. While there may be clashes of wills at times, homeschooling can ultimately strengthen and deepen your relationship with your children!
