5 top reasons why you couldn't possibly teach your own high school children at home.
#1. You'd have to put together a plan. An educational plan. A plan to educate. At home. Your children. Hmmmmm, I bet you organize and have a plan now right, you just don't realize it. Your current plan includes taking them to soccer, baseball, basketball, whatever activity they are in, right? You probably also help them with their homework or school schedules? Let's see, you did teach them to use the bathroom right? You did teach them to feed themselves? How did you manage that? All by yourself? Wow. Impressive. How did you find the time?
#2. You have to keep them on the right track. Forget it, too much work. Really, you have to make sure he/she completes the work given each week. No can do.
#3. You would have to teach them the basic life skills yourself. Yikes! That means balancing a checkbook, banking, how interest works, how to pay household bills on time, and how to be responsible! No way.
#4. You would have to give them a diploma! EEEEKKKK! You would actually have to order a nice diploma online that comes in a nice case, all printed out with YOU under the educators signature! Holy cow.
#5. You would have to hear all the negative homeschool comments from your friends an neighbors on how you have become one of 'those weird homeschool families'. Talk about pressure!
So as you can see, you couldn't possibly do it: teach your children at home. So forget about it. It would be too hard. Go ahead and send them to the government run schools so they can teach them what you don't want them to learn and expose them to things they will never find beneficial in life.
