Can any parent homeschool successfully?

Not All Parents Make Good Homeschooling Teachers

Not all parents are cut out to be homeschooling parents. It is not a blight on your ability to parent, either. Teaching requires a certain temperament and not all people have it. If you are a perfectionist or disorganized, you may not make a good homeschooling parent. Homeschooling requires tolerance and it can be a slow process. If you are homeschooling and it is not working out for you or your child, there is nothing wrong with stopping. If you continue to homeschool and you and your child both hate it, resentment can easily build which can damage your parent/child bond.
