To Homeschool or Not to Homeschool?
This has been a big question for a lot of parents. It was for me. I look in the school system today and see teachers well equipt to teach, for the most part, but no able (due to limits set on them by the school) able to “train” the children. Only give information and increase their knowledge. Many people feel as if, “well, the school can teach them basic knowledge, and then I can teach them about life, instill values in them, and other such things.” But as chlidren spend the majority of their week with their peers, learning from other children these “moral values”, “life lessons”, and what may or may not be true in this life and their world… we are often in competition in teaching them our own values and such. And to add to this delema, many parents now have BOTH entered the workforce for one reason or another, and the child is sometimes left with daycare even afterschool… or with babysitters, or the mom who works at home in the afternoons. So much in society attempts to draw us away from our families and the joy that is formed within a close family unit. We gain a great home and work extra to pay the notes, but have no real “family” to live in it. We drive expensive cars, but family dates are rairly planned and often avoided due to children not getting along or parents arguing with one another or with the children. Dad comes home so late that he rarely sees the kids. But, having a close and unified supportive family is what builds confident children and strong adults who, in turn, produce other strong families. And if schooling is open in your state to do at home… what an awsome OPERTUNITY to further unify your family, grow together, learn together, and so much more! I would always in courage any parent who is able or interested in homeschooling to look at it..and see if it is duable for you… because the benefits of it are so awsome!.. and not just for the children…but for you as well.
