Parents decide to home-school their kids for many different reasons and families who put their kids in public school always want to know why.

Public school isn’t for everyone, some parents don’t want their children to be in a class with kids who have major behavior problems, different religious beliefs or who are slow academically. If you homeschool bright children, they may even be able to skip ahead a couple of grades.

Some people may find your reasons for homeschooling insulting or politically incorrect. Next time someone asks you why you homeschool, try using one of our great comebacks to let them know why in a kind way.
