my four sons and two daughters ages 12 to 2.
home educate because we
disagree with the philosophy within schools and we believe children
should be trained within the family environment.
best thing about home education is
being there as the children learn and being able to deal with issues
immediately - not when they get home.
biggest challenge is
trusting God in it.
home education style is
classical with some autonomous aspects!
Christians in my family
are supportive as they see the benefits, but the others don't talk
of my friends
think it's great. Others think we must want our children to grow up
as social misfits - why can't we just do what everyone else does?
am prepared to home educate forever
advice to a new home educator is
to try it first as you can send your children to school later; it's
harder the other way round. It's always easy to come up with
excuses as to why you shouldn't do it - just get on with it.
Think of the benefits of character training for your children (and
you). You do get used to people thinking you're a bit strange.
