- Fear – This is never a good reason to do or not do something. What fears? Fear of failure, fear that you’re not a good teacher, fear that you’re kids aren’t learning anything, etc.
- Unrealistic Expectations – Really, who doesn’t have some of these? If you think your house is going to be a peaceful, clean, loving home at all hours of every day, you’re not thinking of homeschooling, you’re thinking of a Zoloft commercial.
- Lack of Support
- Changing Circumstances
- Child’s (or Parent’s) Desire
Do you ever feel like throwing in the towel on homeschooling? Which reason hits you the hardest?
