Parental influence on children in the first 12 years of their lives have a permanent effect. Unfortunately, children come with no user manual. Each child is different from the other. Discuss how to handle emotional and educational needs of your child here.
There are many good reasons to homeschool, and I think you're probably already aware of that. Don't listen to the folks who say homeschooled kids never socialize -- unless you lock your kids in the house all day, they will socialize. Good luck.
I am not against home school, but I would never do that for my kids. I think that they should go to local public school and socialize as much as possible. I would not like to take them from learning how real world looks like from early age. I think that they will benefit from it in later life
