HOMESCHOOLING PART 2: IT’S NOT JUST FOR CULTS AND WEIRDOS

This week Sandy and Elisabeth continue their discussion on homeschooling including their reasons for homeschooling and the differences between Christian and secular curriculum.

1 CORINTHIANS [15:33] Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”

We can’t control our kids or their environment forever but we can give them a good start, a firm foundation, a strong faith and a support system to handle the things they cannot control.

PROVERBS 22:6 Train up a child in the way they should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.

HOMESCHOOLING BENEFITS:

  • Strengthen Faith
  • Character Development
  • Creating a Personalized Path to Learning Success
  • Stronger Family Bonds
  • Establishing Active Lifestyle and Healthy Attitudes Towards Food
  • Encourage Creativity
  • Creative and Critical Thinking
  • Safety
  • Socialization and Dealing with Social Anxiety
  • Dealing with Special Needs
  • Flexible Scheduling
  • More Outdoor/Nature Time

CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOLING PITFALLS:

  • Biased Curriculum
  • Inaccurate History
  • Lessons Focused on Scripture Instead of Education

CONCLUSION:

There is nothing inherently evil about homeschooling but there is also nothing inherently evil about traditional schooling. Either way, it is our job as parents to train them up, both in their education and in their faith and school choice is only a small part of that choice.
