Home schooling can be done inexpensively, or even free, making for a much lighter load on the budget. There’s no need to pay for lunches or other work related expenses.
It’s also very easy to teach young children. You don’t have to worry about having a degree. Nobody knows or loves your children more than you do. Teaching your children at home is a great way to build or strengthen family bonds.
Home schooling doesn’t require all the driving needed to transport children to daycare and you to work. Thus, you realize instant savings on gas, car wear and tear, and, of course, time. Also, you won’t have to worry about keeping up with public school activities or whether your local school has cut back on after school programs.
I strongly recommend becoming a member of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). At least take a look at their web site at hslda.org and take a look at their helpful resources, which includes listings for support groups in each state. HSLDA can answer many questions for you or put you in touch with those in your area who can help.
