Deschooling means your children receive little or no formal learning for a while after leaving school and then gain a fresh start by homeschooling. The process is especially valuable if your child has had a difficult learning experience in school. Deschooling can help your child develop better learning habits, reset from the pressures of a traditional school model, or recover from difficult or painful relationships at school.
