  There's no way that I can give you all of the pros and cons of teaching children at home on one small page.  What I can do is to state emphatically that homeschooling works best for us!

  You don't need to become a super Christian or copy everything that schools do in order to be homeschooling.  Every good family does some measure of educating their children at home.  Mom teaches their children to walk and talk and do chores, maybe even to read long before school starts.  There is no reason that education is totally in the hands of the school system. 

 These links are mostly to further that learning process.  Some are completely about and for families whose children don't attend school at all, but most of them can be used by anyone with the drive to make sure their children are active, happy, and successful.

Parents who discovered their child was autistic at 15 months (very early) and devised a program based on their own intuitions - it is so heartwarming - I read it while in graduate school for "light reading" a way to escape my technical science classes for landscape architecture - I couldn't put it down.
