An essential precondition of homeschooling is that both parents are in agreement about the decision. It will prove very difficult for everyone involved if one parent is against it. If this is the case for you, try talking to more people and doing more research on homeschooling. Read up on online courseware and learning materials as well before bringing the topic up with your spouse again.
Another important opinion is your child’s. Is he or she warm to the idea of homeschooling? Ultimately, it’s your decision, but a willing student is always nice. And if your child is absolutely against the idea, you might not have an easy time of it. Remember, just as with online courseware or other commitments, homeschooling isn’t a lifelong one. Most families take it one year at a time.
Do you feel a little intimidated by the prospect of homeschooling? Don’t worry–you can always find tutors for topics you get stuck on. And with the wealth of curriculum and teacher materials, online courseware and other internet resources, you’ll find plenty of support.
