Why I Want To Homeschool: Intro

homeschool

After giving it some thought, I really wanted to do this series. I will be posting each week about a different aspect of why I want to Homeschool my children.  So many people make judgements out of not knowing, and I really want to educate those who might not understand why I am going to choose to homeschool. As a homeschool graduate, a lot of people like to think that I am going to homeschool my kids because of one of the following:

  1. I have been brainwashed and sheltered and therefore think school is evil.
  2. My parents are controlling and will be mad if I do anything else
  3. I am not thinking it through and am just going to do it because that’s the only thing I know.
  4. I am scared of something I have never tried.

Most of these things couldn’t be farther from the truth. These posts aren’t just to prove that to anyone either. It is for me, just as much as others who wish to know. I want to try my hand and get a chance to actually outline my thought processes behind one of the most important things to me.

I also want to state before we get started: Me having all of this thought out does not mean that God can’t change my mind. If He called me to send my kids to school, I would. I also want you to know that I do not judge people for sending their kids to school. God calls each person to a different journey and I know that more than anyone, having had a unique and oftentimes looked-down upon journey myself. Any life decision that people make is their own and between them and God. Who am I to say that there is only one way to anything? Except to salvation, which is only through Jesus Christ.

That being said, I can’t wait to dive into this subject with you! I’ll see you next week for the first post!

What do you think? Are you excited for this series?

By God’s Grace,

Victoria

  1. I am also homeschooled and would like to homeschool in the future (if I have kids). I hope your series will have some good reasons I can use when explaining to other people in the future.

  2. I’m really looking forward to reading this series! I went to public school, and don’t like the way new legislation in my state has been changing it in the past few years. My cousin homeschools her kids and I think that would be a great option if I have kids, if my family will be able to get by on one source of income. Can’t wait to see the rest of the series! 🙂

  3. As a fellow homeschooled kid who is now an adult, I’m definitely looking forward to this blog series about why you are choosing to homeschool your children as well! I always love hearing more from others who were homeschooled – when I was growing up my sisters and I didn’t know anyone else who was and we were seen as “weird” by other kids (and some of their parents) and had to deal with a lot of judgement. It is only in the last year that I’ve come across some wonderful women online who were homeschooled when they were growing up, too, and it has been amazing! I wish you all the luck in the world, Victoria. ❤

  4. I’m homeschooled (also) and would love to homeschool my kids. I think it would be so much fun to teach my kids and have that connection with them. 🙂

  5. I went to public school many years ago and did receive a solid education.. If I had children today they would be homeschooled. The public school system is not the same way as when I attended. Many of the subjects are no longer considered important. Homeschool is a more thorough way to teach your children. I look forward to your series on homeschool,Victoria.

  6. Ooh I’m excited about this series! I’ve been homeschooled and attended school (both private and public), and I’m planning to homeschool my kids. I honestly think there may come a point in the near future where public school isn’t even an option for Christians anymore, which is incredibly sad.

  7. I love seeing homeschool through the eyes of someone who grew up that way. I started a few years back with my son and it was new and scary. I look forward to reading your posts!
