  • You've already got reasons not to homeschool, but have you considered all the reasons to homeschool?

  • Here are a list of 24 things families who homeschool love about their lives:

  • 1. Your kids can chase their dreams

  • School can get in the way when kids want to develop certain skills. With homeschool, what really matters is put before everything else.

  • 2. Innovative learning experiences

  • Your kids can learn through field trips, experiments and films.

  • 3. You pick your own sleep schedule

  • If you'd rather stay up late and sleep in, you have the power to make that happen.

  • 4. The objective is knowledge (not grades)

  • Your kids get to learn without pressure.

  • 5. There's more play time

  • Without having to cater to a whole room of students, work can be done more efficiently.

  • 6. Learning can happen anywhere

  • You will stop limiting learning to the classroom alone. Instead, every moment will be an opportunity for brilliance.

  • 7. Reduced peer pressure

  • Of course, siblings can still pressure each other but that peer pressure most likely safer than the wiles of middle schoolers.

  • 8. They learn good morals

  • You can teach your kids your family's standards instead of what legislators deem correct.

  • 9. Average higher scores on standardized tests

  • Statisticsreveal that homeschooled students score higher on standardized tests than children in public schools.

  • 21. A schedule that works for you
