June 23, 2006, Newsletter Issue #133: Important Homeschool Issues to Weigh

Tip of the Week

Unlike finding a $10 bill on the ground, homeschooling has some notable disadvantages. Here are a few to consider before pursuing a homeschooling approach with your child:

You'll have to spend more money on your child's education
You'll have to spend 24 hours a day with your child for days at a time
It will take more effort to find children with whom yours can build quality relationships
Significant time is required to plan and develop lessons, curriculums, and subjects

Homeschooling is a major undertaking that should not be stepped into lightly. Consider these factors and talk to other parents who have homeschooled their children to see if you really want to commit yourself and your child to the process.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
