All pros!!!

I personally don't see any cons to homeschooling. I homeschool my older two and plan to do it with all four when the younger two are old enough. I love it. I get to control their environment and the influences they are exposed to. I get to be their teacher and spend every moment with them. I don't miss anything! Which is exactly how I want it. I was there when my sons tooth fell out, or when he learned to tie his shoes, when they learned their alphabet I taught them that! It's an amazing thing to see children learn and grow. Family is so important to me and I wouldnt have it any other way.

        Great perspective and thanks for sharing your story, Ariel! I bet you love every second with them.. and vice versa.. so awesome you are there to witness it all! I am sure some Moms might wish they could do this, but obviously you have to be blessed to be able to stay home and do so as well.. I think socializing your home-schooled children is handled on a case by case basis.. some kids don't even socialize well AT school.. it's more individualized then lumped together anyways :)

        this is true. Not everyone is as lucky as I am and get to be a stay at home mom that is able to do this. Plus not everybody is meant to do it. I know I am and it's whats best for my family. I don't judge or tell others how to raise their kids. I just do what I know I should and I love it!

          lol. thank you. Homeschooling isnt for everyone thats for sure. Like my brother or my sister....that would be a disaster! I homeschool year round. That way when we need some time off we can take it! You never know what can come up. Plus I did year round schooling for a short while as a kid and I liked that way best.
