10 Reasons Why We Homeschool









The above pictures are of the same child. In the first she was seven. In the second picture she was eleven. She has only been homeschooled. And just so you know, I wasn’t making her read the book about the presidents. She asked to read it.

  1. Homeschooling enables our children to attend a Biblically based school.
  2. Socialization: It is our experience that children who are homeschooled may have surpassed socialization skills. They are not solely around their peers, but also adults and infants, thus allowing them opportunities to learn how to communicate well with people of all ages.
  3. Individualized Curriculum: Each child is different and so is their learning technique. Homeschooling provides an opportunity for each child to be taught in a manner which focuses on their particular learning style, making concepts easier to grasp, retain and master.
  4. More teacher one on one time.
  5. Encourages individuality.
  6. The teacher is more invested in the outcome of the student’s education. No one wants our children to succeed more than we do.
  7. Learning can take place outside of the home/school.
  8. Children can learn more at home if the parent is truly invested. Learning should never have an only eight hour time frame. It should be a part of life. I have been teaching my children since they were born, not when the state deemed it time.
  9. Less exposure to unfavorable children. By this I mean ‘unfavorable.’ I know of a situation where a young elementary school girl was constantly slapped on her behind by a little boy who told her that he had “fire in his pants” for her. The parent went to the principal and the principal said she was very aware of the little boys problem but there was nothing she could do about it. She told the parent to tell the child to try and ignore the little boy. That parent was me.
  10. More is caught than taught. We prefer our children learning in an environment filled with love, forgiveness, mercy, happiness, and people that believe the Bible is the Word of God.
