Why I Want To Homeschool: Life Experiences

This post will be short and sweet. One of the reasons that I want to homeschool is the amount of real life experiences that I have had in my life as a result. I mentioned in a previous post how I had more time to pursue passions and be creative due to homeschooling, and while this post does fall under a similar category, it’s a little bit different.
Due to my homeschooling, I have been able to have so many real life experiences due to our freedom in getting to go places, volunteer for events, have ministry opportunities and job opportunities that I would not have had otherwise.
We have been able to perform music at a nursing home and have game days with the patients there, as well as performing at hospice homes.
I have been able to pursue my crafts and take the opportunity to present them to the world. I have been able to work in our family business from a very young age and learn things such as people skills, how to sell, marketing and how to make change and all that sort of thing while presenting at shows.
I was able to do life alongside with school work. The opportunities were endless and I feel so blessed to have been able to have that be a part of my ‘education’ or life. I want to be able to offer those things to my kids. Again, not saying that you can’t do those things while going to a public school, but homeschooling did make me more readily available for these type of opportunities.
What do you think?
By God’s Grace,

  1. After having attended public school all my school days, I agree with you. It can be hard to other things after school hours, when you get a teacher who loads you up with a lot of homework. My 6th grade teacher always gave out an overwhelming amount of homework. I did learn a lot in her class,but I had no time to play after school or do any other thing.

  2. I agree! School takes up way too much time and robs children of much of their childhood. I think it’s ridiculous! Homeschooling fosters creativity and family unity. Homeschooling rocks!

  3. I think people who homeschool have more creative opportunities available to them. “School lessons” don’t have to be taught in strict classes — but through EXPERIENCES!
