Computer ate my first post! We home school because our school system is one size per grade, and our kiddo is the wrong size!

I feel homeschooling is important because your children are important. I don't want to miss their first words, or first steps. Why would I want to miss the first time they write their name, or figure out a math problem. I want to inspire them. Homeschooling nurtures a love of learning and allows  you to share in that with your child. Not having to share that time with an entire class of people allows your child to move at their own pace and explore further the subjects they love.

I homeschool for so many reasons, but the biggest one is that I think they deserve MORE than what they'd get in the system. We love the flexibility, and the time we all spend together!

When I was pregnant with my third son, my first two were in public school. We had already been disappointed by bullying by both kids as well as a teacher who had no business teaching young children as she had no patience with them. I was working out if I could do it, when my kids asked if they could homeschool. Not because of the bullying, but because they wanted to be home with me and the baby. We've continued to homeschool because I know they get a richer, more varied experience at home.

We are homeschooling because we want to teach our children at their own pace at the level that is appropriate for them. We want to be sure that they are able to spend plenty of time experiencing what interests them most. I also love that we can  spend more time with our children while they are so young. Thank you for the opportunity to win this giveaway!

Our choice to homeschool is really based on the desire to give our children freedom to learn all that want and to be who they are. To bless the world and be blessed by it in their own unique ways smile.gif

We homeschool because we thought this would be the best way to meet their needs! My oldest has a sensory disorder and school is not the best match for him. Oak Medow meets everyone's needs! And thanks to you, my son is learning art, even though he used to not like it!!!

We are choosing to homeschool in order to travel with our children, allow them to develop at their own pace, and investigate their own interests.

Why homeschool?  To provide a multifaceted learning environment tailored to my children's needs---one that still allows them to be children while learning. :)

I homeschool because it's the most nurturing and attentive education my child can receive.

I homeschool because I love to learn with my boys and enjoy watching them explore our world. Childhood is SO short I want to enjoy every fascinating minute with them while providing a fun and enriching learning experience.

I want to homeschool to spend more time with my kids and continue to foster the connectedness that I found so important during the baby/toddler years!

I want my 3yr old to continue to have the freedom to learn at his own pace and the love and guidance for his mind, heart, and spirit to not be placed in a box. I want to connect and share in learning about the world around us. My son will be free to explore, feel, and learn. Having the freedom to spend the time with him homeschooling is so important to me. In doing so we will be encouraging each other to learn new things everyday. Having some tools as he's growing would be fabulous!

I originally considered homeshooling because my daughter has a crazy active imagination and I want to keep it that way, but since then I have come up with a million and a half more reasons to do so! :)
