I came across this article written by a public school educator and administrator: 12 Most Compelling Reasons to Homeschool Your Children and I thought I would share it. Some of these were definitely true for us, but they are only a handful of the reasons we chose to homeschool. One comment from a teacher last year (when our children were still in public school) that really sticks out in my mind is "I treat all the kids in my classroom the same. I don't want anyone to stand out as different." Really?!? As a parent, I know that what works as a reward for one child may not work for the next. That's the joy of getting to know your children. We do not all speak the same Love Language. We are all unique individuals with our own quirkiness.
