New to Homeschooling?
There are many possible reasons for educating children at home. These may include the following but are certainly not limited to them:
Scriptural mandate, character development, academic excellence, alternative to classroom schooling, and special needs of family or children.
Benefits of homeschooling include:
The opportunity to disciple your children, more time building relationships with parents/siblings, positive socialization, flexibility in scheduling, individualized academic instruction, parental control over curricular choices, ability to focus on your child’s unique gifts and needs, and customized curriculum to meet interests/needs of your child.
The reasons you begin homeschooling and the reasons you continue may change as you see how homeschooling works for your family. Whatever your reasons, with the benefits comes the responsibility of following through on the commitment to provide an education for your children at home.
