One of the main reasons why parents choose to home school their children is the fact that they can monitor their children closely. In a normal classroom setting, even the most efficient teachers cannot give the same level of individualized attention to every student even if they want to. In a home school setting, parents can tailor their curriculum and teaching style according to the capabilities of each of their children. They can acquire a pace that is sure to yield productive results. Parents can also choose the materials that are used for instruction. Home schooled children do not have to wake up early just to make it in time to school nor do they have to waste time waiting in line just to buy their food at the cafeteria. They also don’t have to worry about carrying their heavy backpacks around school. With home schooling, they spend their time studying at their own pace and still have enough time to explore other interests.
