Why we choose Homeschooling?

These past few days, I have been receiving many messages from my “FB” friends asking about homeschooling. It’s almost end of May and in the ‘traditional’ setting, this is the time of enrollment for the upcoming school year. Parents, guardians are concern with their student’s safety thus opting to homeschool.

SO WHY DO WE CHOOSE HOMESCHOOLING?

I have been thinking about it since 2013, but we have opted not to push thru. That time, my husband and I had full time office work, sometimes on night shift; I thought homeschooling is not possible

After a lot of reading (internet, books) and with the help of some friends, finally we have started our first homeschooling last year, 2019. Thank God, kuya agreed to try it, with a condition, which is to homeschool only for a year (but now, he does not want to go back to traditional school haha)

There are many reasons why families choose to homeschool, some are:

  • Negative environment in school (e.g. child is bullied)
  • Improve Social Interactions (oh yes, this is true!)
  • Child has special educational needs
  • Family moves a lot – (travel, work, business, etc)

As for us, our primary WHY is to build our son’s character, Godly character: parents are the best teachers for that – values are not taught, they are caught

Because of the COVID-19, parents are more interested in homeschooling now than before…

“Father God, thank You that we have an option to homeschool our children. I pray for a clear understanding and a peace that only You can provide for all the parents, guardians who are struggling on how to continue their kid’s education at this time of pandemic. Please remind us that our thoughts are not Your thoughts and our ways are not Your ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). To You be all the glory, this is what we pray in Jesus’name…”
