1. Myth: Homeschoolers Are Always Home
Truth: Homeschooling takes place everywhere, not just at home! More than just a way of educating children, homeschooling is a lifestyle. Homeschoolers seek out opportunities to learn everywhere they go. Grocery trips become lessons in economics, budgeting, and nutrition. Park trips turn into opportunities to identify birds, insects and plants.

Homeschoolers are often thought of as reclusive, but the truth is that they have more opportunities out in the community now than ever. There are co-ops where parents take turns teaching subjects to a group of children. There are classes specifically for homeschooled students. Homeschooled kids participate in sports, music, and extra-curricular lessons alongside their traditionally educated peers. Any homeschooling parent will tell you that they feel like they are rarely actually home at all!
