    At what age we can start to homeschool our child?

    • chris says:

      You can begin as early as you want. Homeschooling your child is a lifestyle you can embrace while your child is still a toddler.

  2. Shirley says:

    what are the characteristic of kids that can cope/survive home schooling?

    • chris says:

      It would be best to inquire with homeschool providers for more statistics on this subject, but perosonally, i think as long as your child loves to learn and loves to read, he should thrive in the homeschool environment.

  3. Eva San says:

    I like to ask if its applicable with hyperactive children

  4. Olga says:

    Would homeschooling be possible (and successful) even if just one of the parents believe in its benefits? My heart still longs to homeschool my children but without my husband’s support, I am afraid it would not work well for us.

    • chris says:

      It is still best to have the support of both parents since homeschooling is a family decision and a family lifestyle. Though I have heard of families who started to homeschool with only one of the parent believing in homeschooling then eventually when they finally see the benefits of homeschooling, the other party soon supports the decision to homeschool. Keep praying Olga! :)

  5. Kinney says:

    I just would like to know what are the views of the people on homeschooling and developing a child’s ability to relate to other children. This is one of my concerns on homeschooling :)

    • chris says:

      People view homeschooling differently. Some accept them while ohers don’t really understand what homeschooling is and how it works. I think it depends on why you really want to homeschool and how your family will adapt the lifestyle of homeschooling.
      Homeschooling is an excellent way to develop your child’s ability to relate to other adults and children. Since they are surrounded by adults most of the time, the homeschooled students usually turns out well mannered, able to converse with people of varying ages and able to express themselves well.

  6. Ayu Kiener says:

    What are the difference between homeschooling your child and enrolling him or her at school?

    • chris says:

      The biggest difference would be the main influencer and teacher would be the parent instead of a professional teacher. The home would be an environment where learning thrives as well.

  7. Michael Bustos says:

    What are the benefits of a homeschooled child?

  8. Kin Buenconsejo says:

    What are the advantages and disadvantages of a homeschooled child?

  9. what made you decide that homeschooling is for your family?

  10. kimmy says:

    with what’s been going on in schools lately, both public and private, i’m actually considering it..

  11. Allysa Pascual says:

    What kind of materials do we need for homeschooling?

    • chris says:

      it actually depends on which curriculum you want to use for your child. there are some local materials available from your homeschool providers and there are also some which you can purchase from the internet

  12. Mark Mendoza says:

    Do you know any homeschooling website where we can find more information about homeschooling?

  13. Esperanza Mendoza says:

    Until what age do you recommend on homeschooling a child?

  14. Lorraine says:

    My husband and I will definitely homeschool our child. We are not satisfied with the current school system and would also like to instill Godly values to him. By God’s grace, we can do this!
