Home schooled children have an advantage when it comes to home school furniture. Why? Because you don't necessarily need that much. And your own home furniture can serve for certain functions as well. Whether or not you invest in traditional school furniture is a matter of personal preference. If you are teaching more than one child, you might benefit from setting up a formal space in your home where your kids learn. Separating play time from learning time will help put them in the right frame of reference. You can control the distractions and temptations of their surroundings.
