Home schooling is more of taking responsibility of educating your children, in a way that is age and developmentally appropriate. Usually one or sometime both parents take up responsibility of providing learning resources for their children and take them to many places including their workplaces to experience many skills and situations.
Both the parents need to agree on proceeding on this path. This is even before suggesting or discussing with the child.
Most of the families who homeschool are from the upper middle income group who have chosen to liberate their children from the shackles of rigid schooling.
Talk proper language and not BABY language. It confuses children later on. Make your home clutter free and provide real items for the child to explore, at her/his level.
Simple lifestyle with spending for needs is the way children learn to become responsible citizens. Understanding human needs and tendencies is important. There is a need to slow down and allow lots of time and space for the child.
