Homeschooling is NOT the end all be all perfect solution for raising a well adjust genius.
But it is the perfect solution for us.
Here are some of the reasons why we love it so much…
Homeschooling allows us to set our own pace in lessons. When my daughter has mastered something no reason to beat around the bush. Move on! What things have we, “moved on” in? Spelling for one. We ended up going for a higher grade spelling curriculum to give her a challenge and she loves it!
We have a homeschool schedule that fits our family life. My husband has a catywompus (sp I know) schedule and homeschooling allows us to take a break during the week so we can spend extra time with him.
You get two educations for the price of one! I used to hear this joke before we started homeschooling. My sister said it all the time and without sounding like I’m bragging she was already a genius. But there were still some gaps in our schooling partly because we moved a lot during our school years and some of that moving happened overseas. Homeschooling has allowed us to fill those gaps (raise your hand if diagraming a sentence finally make sense).
Who doesn’t love a spontaneous hug from their child? My daughter hugged me the other day after our schoolwork was done and said, “I love homeschool mom!” As we’re finding our footing year after year she’s enjoying this season in her life and I’m glad.
