Great Article Links

Tsh over at Simple Mom had some links to some really good articles.  I especially liked the list (written by a public school teacher) of the 12 compelling reasons to homeschool your child.  I had a few quick thoughts about the list.  Homeschooling is not for everyone or every family, but if it suits you and your family there sure are a lot of wonderful benefits. The wonderful thing about homeschooling is that it is completely different for every family. Some people start early, others start late.  Some have a loose structure, others are quite regimented. Some people unschool, some people have one set curriculum they follow, others join co-ops. People choose from hundreds of different curriculums and find (or strive to find!) the best fit for their children.  Our style (a fairly hands-on, messy, relaxed style) is completely different from my good friend who use an online-based homeschooling currriculum and lots of you-tube videos (and avoid arts-and-crafts and messy things), but the amazing thing is that our kids are thriving.

Do you have any thoughts about the list?
