Homeschool Tall Tale: Parents Are Not Qualified to Teach Their Own Children
Susan Mueller
As concerned parents, we are totally qualified to teach our children. No one knows your child like you do. Your job is not to teach them everything there is to learn. Your job is to teach them how to learn, how to study, how to investigate and help them develop the love of learning. There is no greater job on earth. Is it hard? Sometimes. Is it worth it? You betcha!
I Can't Homeschool Because I Don't Have a Degree
Not so! You absolutely can homeschool without a degree. Not only is it not required by most states that a homeschooling parent has a college degree, but it’s simply a misconceived notion that those without a college degree are not intelligent. Certainly that is not the case! The main requirement for homeschooling your children is a parent with a loving heart and a desire to give their child the best. You don’t need special training in child psychology. Remember, you know your child better than anyone else!

Transitioning from Parent to Homeschool Teacher: Are You Qualified?
Isabel Shaw
Parents often tell me, "I'd love to homeschool my kids, but I don't think I'm qualified." Other parents are intrigued by homeschooling, but couldn't possibly imagine themselves as both parent and teacher. Is it possible for average parents to take on the enormous job of educating their children? Aren't years of specialized training required to become a good teacher? The answer to both of these questions is "yes." How is that possible? Because learning at home is very different from learning in a classroom.
