The True Cost of Homeschooling

Okay, I will admit it. Just reading the title of this article stressed me out. As a former physician, opportunity costs of staying home with my children is something that I am faced with often as I field criticisms from others about my choice to stay home with and home educate my children.

I do not even want to figure out my lost opportunity costs because I might faint or start crying or some other girlie thing like that.

The author makes her point clear at the end though. She thinks that homeschooling is worth it and so do I. It is difficult to put a price on the emotional, spiritual and academic benefits of home education.

I can not imagine making any other choice.
