My daughter is currently in Kindergarten at a great school. She is doing good, not above average but keeping up with everyone. Her class size is 24 kids which seems like a lot. Lately I have been looking into homeschooling and what you need to be able to do to home school your child. There are many things that make me contemplate homeschooling from, being able to set your own schedule, not necessarily having a huge summer break, controlling what your kids are exposed to/learn, etc.
The major thing that holds me back though is, how do you afford it? I have been home with my daughter for 3 years and its been surprisingly easier on our budget then expected but its still not as easy as when I was working. I’m concerned as I know we have some major expenses coming up that I don’t want to just ignore and so I’m torn. Do most home school parents find jobs in the evenings? How do you do it?
Next concern what happens come high school/college time. I have a 4 year degree in accounting but I don’t know if that means I can teach her well enough to get through High School.
How do I know homeschooling if the right choice?
