For this article, I thought I would list five reasons that you should consider homeschooling your children.

Homeschooling is becoming more and more common. Estimates are that there is over 1 million kids being homeschooled in the United States. So what are some of the reasons parents decide to homeschool their children? Let’s take a look at five of those reasons.

Better Education

One of the biggest reasons parents decide to homeschool their children is because they feel they can provide for their child a better education. After all, who is going to know the children more and what they need to learn then their parents? If parents choose to homeschool their children, they can decide what the child should know and keep an eye on their education at all times. A child’s education is one of the most important things in their life, it needs to be top quality.


This can be a heated topic, but many parents choose to homeschool their children so that religion can be brought into the education. Whether you agree that religion should be taught in education or not, it’s up for the parents to decide what their children learn, not any of us. If you are considering homeschooling your children and you want to include Religion, then go right ahead. If you don’t want to use religion, then you don’t have to. It’s your choice! You’re the parent!

Poor Learning Environment

Another reason that parents choose to homeschool their children is due to a poor learning environment at school. Let’s face it, the learning environment at school isn’t usually too great. Classrooms are filled with distractions, interruptions, etc.

I remember one time in sixth grade, right during the middle of class, my sixth grade teacher actually stopped class to run and call into a radio contest show. Was that really necessary? If you homeschool your children, they don’t have to deal with any of this.

Peer Pressure/Safety

Another problem with some schools is the peer pressure from other students and the violence in classrooms. When you send your kids off to school, you just never know who they may interact with and you don’t know what they might be exposed too. Will someone get them to try drugs? Will someone hurt them? Homeschooling your children eliminates that problem.

Family Time

And finally, we come to Family time. This is another reason parents choose to homeschool their children. Life can be busy at times. The kids may be at school during the day, but in the evening, dinner is being cooked, homework is being done, the children are out with friends, etc. How often do you really get a chance to spend time with your kids in the evening? By homeschooling your children, you have the chance to be around them the entire day.

These are just five of the many reasons parents choose to homeschool their children. If you are thinking of homeschooling your children, then good luck with it! I also recommend you check out Professor Homeschool. It is an e-book explaining all about how to begin homeschooling. I went ahead and included the link to this e-book in my author information.
