A few weeks ago I wrote about our homeschool story, and how we made the decision to homeschool. Well, when I starting hearing more about homeschooling I would ask the homeschool children if they preferred to be homeschooled. Every child I asked the answer was always "yes, I love being homeschooled." If you ask my children they would answer with the same reply.
Just recently I was asked if I still homeschooled, and I said "yes." Their response "wow, I couldn't homeschool" "my children need to go to school so they can learn" "my children need to learn about life so they need to go to school" "my children need to go to school so they can be motivated to learn." As I was listening to the comments I was thinking "Lord please give me the words I need." After their comments or suggestions were done I said "you can teach your children about life at home"(after more sarcastic comments), I then said "well it works for us".
Not many people agree with homeschooling, and homeschooling may not be for many. My children have attended "regular" school and homeschooling, so they have had he experience of both. Homeschooling just works for us.
