I'm starting to think I'd like to Homeschool my daughter (and any future kiddies).
There are a few reasons I'm thinking I'd like to do this, to minimise her risk of bullying (which lets face it is a huge issue), to make sure she doesn't fall through the cracks and has the attention she needs to do well and so on.
However, the lack of social interaction worries me. Humans (for the most part) are social creatures and need outside stimulation and friends to interact and play with.
For those of you who homeschool, What are your reasons for Homeschooling and do you feel your child/ren have the balance needed to be well rounded people, and do they have friends and social interactions outside their family?
For those who go the traditional route, What are your reasons for sending your child/ren to the traditional school setting and do you feel they have the balance needed to be well rounded people, and do they have enough family time?
I have plenty of time to make a final decision, but I like to (for the most part) do my research and inform myself well. I don't really like surprises.
Edited to Add another Question:
To those that Homeschool, Did you start right off the bat or did/do your Kids go to Kindy first.
