Why We Chose to Homeschool | The Strong New Me

I’m super excited to share with you today our personal reasons why we chose to Homeschool our children.

For the past couple of months, my husband and I decided not to enroll our children in the traditional school. We’ve been praying faithfully for the Lord to enlighten us if this would be best for us and He answered us by making every possible scenario favorable for us to be able to Homeschool.

First off, the decision to Homeschool is not an easy choice. Or shall I say, making a choice outside of the norms, isn’t always an easy choice. We’ve been bred to the idea that your children’s success equates the amount of time they will spend in the school, to which school they are enrolled in and how ahead they’re concepts are in learning.

However, we’re blessed to know at an earlier stage that there’s far more deeper meaning to one’s education than passing and topping test results or school rankings. WE want our children to be soldiers for Christ, who will stand boldly on his beliefs and harness his skills despite of the circumstances they’re in. We don’t only want them to survive in the hamster wheel that the system provides but to thrive and live a fruitful life for God’s greater glory.

 

A quick outline of what I have discussed in the video:

Advantages

  • Instill discipline
  • Boarderless learning
  • Turn them into self-learners
  • Freedom

I know there’s are still a lot of good points that I wasn’t able to mention such as:

  • Personalized learning experience
  • Immediate feedback on how your child is coping with the lessons
  • and whole lot MORE!

Disadvantages

  • Homeschooling Entails sacrifice
  • Time and effort consuming
  • It’s not really a cheaper alternative

Most Common Objection

  • Are they learning enough social skills?
    – I’m sharing with you a story that totally stumps this question out.
