Many parents start out with no intention of educating their children at home. Then, something happens, and they become “accidental homeschoolers.” The reasons can vary widely, from having a child who is too advanced to fit in with his peers, a child with learning difficulties, or even a worldwide pandemic that leaves families hesitant to send their child back into the public-school system.
If you or someone you know is a new “accidental homeschooler,” you are in good company!
