I am asked this question a lot so here it is. Every family is different so my reasons for homeschooling may not be the same as another families. We all make decisions based on what is best for our families. I have prayed a lot over this and homeschooling is best for our family.
Why home school?
I’ve wanted to home school my children for as long as I can remember. I love the idea of teaching them and learning with them daily. We have so much fun together and I love having them with me.
I do not want someone else having more influence over my children than me. Children are put into school at very young ages. I do not want them spending 8+ waking hours with someone that I do not know.
I believe God gave me these blessings to raise in his way and I’m going to do the best job that I can. I believe teaching my boys about God is most important and public schools do not do that. Honestly, it’s not their job nor do I want it to be.
I believe that family is important. Call me over protective, I don’t care. They are young and vulnerable. I want to protect them and keep them innocent for as long as possible.
I believe that no one wants my children to succeed more than me. I know I will do everything I can to ensure that they do succeed. I want them to be able to study those things that they are passionate about. I love that Carson is excited about learning.
These are just some of the many reasons homeschooling is the right decision for us.
