I saw this in the Miami Herald, and had to post a link. It makes a mommy want to cry…
We’re starting classes Monday–beginning our 8th official year of homeschooling. I’m working on our kick-off, the annual treasure hunt clues that will lead my girls to their new curriculum and literature books for 2010-11. How thankful I am, for these ‘thousands of hours’ with my sweet kids! I shudder to think of all we might have lost if not for homeschooling!
For instance, homeschooling is the perfect healing ground for family relationships. It’s a *must-adapt-and-get-along* atmosphere. If you were to pull your children out of public school today, would all the cats hit the fan? If so, it reveals the sad state of the relationships and habits in and of the family. Siblings can get along and even more, be best friends. Children can love and respect their parents and genuinely seek to further God’s glory along with the family unit. I might even go a step further and say that the Biblical model for educating our families looks a lot like homeschooling!
Maybe homeschooling is an option for you?
