Are you prepared for homeschooling tonot work for you?● Most parents and children who are homeschooled saythey would never go back to traditional schooling.● However, if for some reason homeschooling doesntwork out for you, other options (such as flexibleschooling or a change of schools altogether) may be theanswer for you and your child.● The key is for both parents and children to feelcomfortable with your decision.
