I came across this blog post from Weird Unsocialized homeschoolers on 50 Reasons Why Homeschool Kids Love Homeschooling. I thought it was a great list of reasons right from the mouths of kids! I decided to ask my own girls, what they liked about homeschooling.
Of course some of the comments where dislikes.
They don't like that they can't play with a few neighborhood girls during the school day.
They don't like that they can't play at two of the local playgrounds during the day that we can ride our bikes to, because they are on school property.
But they did have quiet a few positive reasons as to why they like homeschooling! Here is their list!
