There are several reasons why I think home schooling is better for my children's education:
a. Their older sister died of cancer and my husband and I believe they needed a safe and secure environment to deal with the subject of death and sorrow. We wanted to feel free to talk about their sister at any time of the day, and to weep if we needed to.
b. Our children were ready to read when they were four years of age - they're blessed with the ability to read and understand language and its symbols.
c. The children get to work on the subjects and the areas of learning they are geared toward and are interested in. They are not held back by an agenda of any kind except for what we, their parents, believe is best for them.
d. Our children are not placed very often in a situation where they have to defend themselves in a peer-only setting.
e. They get along with people - children and adults of all ages of any skin color - without a problem.
f. They are learning how to help at home, plan and prepare meals, drop everything to serve someone else when something comes up, practice skills on piano and ballet during the day, and so many more skills.
g. And the biggest reason of all - we get to point our children to Christ, their Savior, many times a day...
