A child is usually with their parents for three to five years before they enter into the public schools. Those three to five years are crucial in a child’s life. Their parents have already molded and shaped many ideals and beliefs their child will subconsciously have forever.

Public school allows more interaction and socializing with other children, while home schooling concentrates on the how child progresses educationally, as the needs of the child are met. It is the goal of the parent home schooling to see their child succeed. Many parents would want to home school the child because of a hundred percent involvement in the child’s education, this is a major decision for any parent, but I know most parents wants to know how much their child is progressing on a daily basis, what are they learning and knowing they are a part of their child’s education.
