Let’s Talk About Why We Homeschool: Homeschool Link UP

Why do you Homeschool?  is a question as old as education.  The answers are as varied as there are home educators.  Today the Homeschool Review Crew would like to share their stories on why they have chosen the path of home education for their families.  We invite you to grab a cup of your favourite brew and come along for some encouragement along your home education journey.

Kirsten @ DoodleMom’s Homeschooling Life shares

  • I is for Idiot – I is for Idiot – and I was one! When my kids were little my husband told me about homeschooling, and I dismissed the idea. Then we became the poster-family for reasons why people homeschool. Let me share our story with you.
  • Look In My Eyes For The Memories – Sometimes the reasons why I homeschool shine back at me in the rear view mirror, or from a torn page with a poem written by my boy when he was young. You don’t always understand the blessings of homeschooling before you start, but as you come to the end many more reasons shine through.

Kym @ Homeschool Coffee Break shares

  • A Long Time Ago . . . Why We Decided to Homeschool – There are so many reasons for choosing home education to begin with, and often we find new reasons to keep homeschooling! Our homeschool story started what seems like a long time ago, and in a place far away . . . Okay, not a galaxy far away, but in a different country at least.
  • From the High School Lesson Book – School Scripture – Each school year I choose a School Scripture that helps me to hone in on what I believe the Lord has for us during the school year, and gives me an over-arching purpose that’s bigger and more important than a grade point average.

Marla @ Jump Into Genius shares Top Three Reasons I Home Educate My Kids – I talk about some reasons that are not typically listed, but that are at the core of why I homeschool. My belief about the humanness and innate intelligence of children, and my desire to raise functional adults.

Amy @ the WRITE Balance shares

  • Why We Homeschool: An Ongoing Conversation – When we decided to homeschool it was because the reasons we would far outweighed the reasons we wouldn’t.
  • All Roads Have Rocks – It is easy to think once we make the decision to homeschool that there won’t be any problems. All roads have rocks, we just have to decide which road we like the best.
  • Great Distortions: Educating Expectations – Homeschooling doesn’t always look like what we expect going in. Instead of giving up, try re-educating your expectations.
  • Family Identity: Deciding Who We Are – The choice to homeschool brings your family identity to the surface in a big way. Determining who you are and who you want to be as a family highlights why you are choosing this path to begin with.
