Homeschooling is a form of education where a parent decides not to send the child to a formal school whether public or private. Instead, the parent teaches the child by himself or herself and may decide to employ a private tutor to teach the child.
One of the reasons some parents decide to homeschool their children is because they feel it will protect their children from negative peer pressure, bad companionship, learning the wrong things, being bullied in school and from being abused or molested.
Some parents believe that a young age, the child should not be exposed to the society but should be trained in the home until the child is old and mature enough to distinguish between right and wrong and mature enough to make wise decisions by themselves.
