The most common misperception about homeschooling is that you must have a college degree or some other special qualifications to teach your own children. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are perfectly qualified to teach your children just because they are your children. No matter how competent and devoted a professional teacher may be, that teacher can never know or love your child as deeply as you do. And since love underlies all true learning, homeschooling parents actually have an advantage over professional teachers.
