I want to explore homeschooling to extend our influence in raising our boys. I also want to be able to meet their specific needs more fully, to give them freedom to dive into what they love, and to help instill a love for learning that goes beyond a classroom setting. Thank you to Mothering for introducing me to Oak Meadow!
I homeschool my kids because I want to have a complete share in what they are being taught, and how they are taught. I rather make the needed adjustments to see that they enjoy what they are doing, not to mention without alot of distractions, they are able to focus more and benifit from their studies. my daughter is 10 and I have been schooling her since she was 3 my my son is 4 1/2 he started at 3 1/2. I get comments from people all the time how articulate they are from a young age... Homeschooling rocks!! We enjoy it, and I encourage other parents to look into.
I was a teacher for almost a decade before I had my own children. I saw how each child I taught was so unique. I see how each day is a gift that should never be taken for granted. I want to spend these special days helping my children use their unique gifts and discovering all they can accomplish. I never want these gifts and talents to be hindered because they do not fit in the mold created by many schools.
After having our daughter in the public school system for several years, but being a close family who feels strongly about home learning, we finally made the leap to homeschooling several weeks ago. We did it to have control of what our children are learning, their environment, and for the closeness of our family. I am so glad we finally did it!
I have chosen to homeschool my kids because I feel I am already their teacher. It only makes sense that I give them an education that they deserve. I want them to enjoy, create, and find their passion and I don't want to miss a single moment.

I want to give my children the best chance in life. I never planned on homeschooling till this year when my 6 year old daughter started being bullied at school...yes bullied in first grade i was shocked , Ive lost my happy joyful child, she became depressed and went from the top of her jk/sk class to the bottom in her 1st grade class. Not to mention the P.S system has failed to stop the issues , among other things.
She deserves more , I can give her that by giving her an amazing education at home , where she will never feel left out , attacked , alone or sad ever again. Learning will become fun and enjoyable again. Using the Oak Meadow curriculum as a base and adding in extra content to suit each of my childrens needs as they grow.
We are exploring how to homeschool in our state and with our lifestyle, because we want our child to be free to learn at the pace and in the ways that are most natural for him. Finding this site and resources was so timely.
