Half hour later, I did the sensible thing. I called my daughter, Cynthia, who homeschools two out of three of their children while entertaining the third who is not quite old enough for school. Yeah. Homeschooling Mama loves me! She juggled carrots with the toddler, questions from the olders, and wandered around the WWW to point me to some great homeschooling sites.
- First, people need to realize that the desire to homeschool is not always religiously motivated.
- Second, some children are quiet because they have quiet personalities not because they are homeschooled. Children’s individual personalities are allowed to flourish in the homeschool environment.
- Third, homeschooled children are not unsocialized. They often are involved in lots of group activities like homeschool groups and clubs, church groups, Parks and Recreation classes, Little League, etc., etc., etc...
- It’s okay to be ‘not all together’ – you don’t have to be super mom (or dad) to homeschool!
- Homeschool, she said, is not much more different than helping children with homework in the evening.
- Quote: “I’m not a supermom for doing this!”
I found some interesting homeschool sites, too, which have information on almost every aspect of homeschooling.
How about I turn over the blog, now, to a past 'homeschoolee' and let him give you a few last words…
