Now, that my friends, is a good question.
Why do we homeschool?
Let me count the ways?
Ha ha ha.
Seriously. That’s a tough question.
- We homeschool because we believe God has commanded us to teach our kids of His love from morning to night. (Deut. 6:5-7)
- We homeschool because we believe God has commanded us to train up our children. I don’t think He meant until they were 5 and then pass them off to someone else to train. (Proverbs 22:7)
- We homeschool because we don’t want a different stranger every year to teach our children. Jason and I know our children far better than anyone else. So why pass them off to someone we don’t know for an entire year?
- We homeschool because we don’t want the government to indoctrinate our children with their beliefs. We want to teach them about worldly beliefs in a controlled environment and show them, Biblically, why they’re wrong.
- We homeschool them because we don’t think they have to grow up in a classroom with thirty other children their age to be good, upstanding citizens. They don’t need the bad influences. They need the guidance of their God, mom and dad; not every Tom, Dick and Harry out there.
- And finally, we homeschool them because we just flat out think that is best for our family.
