Fifteen years ago, I searched for arguments against homeschooling, and that search shifted my family’s next decade.
When I was first asked if I considered homeschooling, I thought that approach was for off-grid families. But I was a mainstream kinda gal.
Within a week of reading a book, the Homeschooling Option by Lisa Rivere, I was certain that homeschooling was meant for our family.
No DOUBT about, I had many doubts yet to quell. So much questioning from so many concerned family members or the general public, and I became defensive and mentally prepared my arguments for homeschooling.
All the while, I didn't know if it was really going to work, because it wasn't easy, some days I didn't want to do it at all, some days I was hoping the yellow school bus would stop for my kiddos, but mostly I saw all the benefits of this lifestyle and wanted to be certain that it was the right thing for our family.
With so much studying about learning, learning about my kids, listening to what an education really is, I learned that this homeschool thing WAS working. Not the WAY I had imagniend it maybe, but it definitely created independent kiddos that could hold their own in any adult conversation, were confident with their peers, walked into their own paths, with their unique sense of purposes.
I'm eager to share the freedoms of the homeschool lifestyle with the skeptical, the intrigued, and the planning: but especially YOU.
You don't have to homeschool in uncertainty and doubt.
I am a hearty advocate of home education and want to encourage others that they can create a a meaningful, individualized education for their homeschool families.
If you're uncertain about the transition from school to homeschool, you will get your uncertainties clarified and your vision fortified here.
