My spouse/parents/friends are skeptical about homeschooling. What can I do?

I'm pretty sure that homeschooling would be a good choice for my family, but I get the feeling that other people I care about still have doubts. What can I do?

The big problem with doubters is that they can shake your confidence. Make an effort to meet as many other homeschool families as possible. Spending time around other homeschoolers will help you feel confident about the choice you're making and allow you to see how people with vastly different lifestyles and methods of education have great outcomes. Getting a boost of courage from experienced families in the beginning will help get you started, and after you've been homeschooling for a few months, you'll be able to build on that boost with your own experience.

If you feel you need to appeal to family and friends, one good approach is to ask them to help. If your sister is a nurse, you can say "Hey, when we get to anatomy, your expertise is going to be essential." Even if you never do get around to picking her brain, getting people on board gives them a stake in your education plan and brings them around to your side. Almost everyone is an expert at something and chances are, they want to talk about it.

The best thing to do is to make the decision that is going to be best for you. With homeschooling you are able to customize the educational experience precisely to your child. Giving them every opportunity to shine and develop into the person that they are going to be.

Many people that are against homeschooling are so because of ignorance rather than knowing that it is about. I let people know that homeschooling is NOT locking my child into a room for 8 hours a day and making them study (that seems to be a common misconception). It is more about guiding your child. You both learn and grow together.

No matter what, you will not be able to change some peoples perception of homeschooling. The thing that will change their minds more than anything is results. Once your start the process, the improvements in your child will speak volumes to the doubters.

i think it is a personal family decision, but of course it is made easier when others are behind you. My spouse was wary in the beginning but it did not take him long to see the benefits to our dd and to our family. We started it as a trial thing, for that particular year and are still doing it this year, three years later and he has become a REAL HOMESCHOOL advocate. For our child, in our situation. I do agree though that asking others for their help is a great way to turn them for it instead of against it, especially grandparents. Our dd has had the wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with her grandparents who live on a working farm, and enjoy what that has to offer her and learn MANY things at the feet of her grandparents. PRICELESS!
