Why Did Maggie And Patrick Decide To Homeschool Their Kids?

After that, she was unsure if she wanted to send her kids to school. She started thinking differently. 

Then she started learning about homeschooling. She said she was not against the school education system. 

She admitted that at first, she decided to homeschool her kids as she loved being a mom and wanted to have her kids around her all-time, and she also thought she could also teach things that kids wouldn't learn at school. 

But when she got into homeschooling, it was a completely different perspective. She started questioning why choose to school and what did they get out of there.

She said her husband also thought that homeschooling would be interesting. 

She added her kids were a bit different than other kids as her son had sensitivity issues, and Billie had auditory processing issues so she couldn’t learn the same way as other kids. 

She thought that schooling them wouldn't be a good idea. So they decided to homeschool their kids.
