    I hear lots of positive (and negative) assumptions about homeschooling in general and even more about homeschooling an only. But I'd like to start on a positive note - so let's talk about the advantages of homeschooling an only.

    The Advantages of Homeschooling an Only Child

    What do you love about homeschooling your only child?

    Or, if you have more than one - what do you perceive are the advantages of homeschooling an only?

    So glad you and your family are safe. I have to admit I'm surprised at the differences in approaches between parts of the same state. I hope you don't have to put the "run through" to the real test!
