I hate the public schools in my area. But I'm afraid if I homeschool him through all of school he will miss opportunities like sports, art contests, choir or whatever he's into. But I don't want him to not fit in when he starts public school either.Answer Question

It depends entirely on how you handle homeschooling. Most of the students who enroll in the public school where I teacher after being home schooled are severely behind. When parents don't do their research and keep up with what skills are developmentally appropriate, kids can fall behind and have a very tough time when they are put back in school. On the other hand, if you do your research and thoroughly prepare yourself your child will have the benefit of individualized instruction that could result in them progressing faster than they would have in school. It's up to you.
