Educating at Home

Educating at Home is One of the Best Options!

Parents of school-age children often consider all their options before moving forward. For some of us, the freedom to homeschool our own kids seems both attractive and terrifying at the same time. And, if we share our thoughts with family and friends, we sometimes find strong opinions about why we CAN NOT and SHOULD NOT do this to our kids.

I’d like to be a voice on the other side of the discussion! Teaching your own kids at home is challenging, life-changing, and a priceless gift of love. There are some videos below that will help give some perspective, along with a series of articles focused on this wild and wonderful world of homeschooling. I hope you find it encouraging!
