30 Jul, 2020 Top 5 Reasons to Homeschool Your Kids
By Dr. Kathryn Knight
In these times of world turmoil and increasing chaos, more and more parents are struggling to find the best solution for their children’s education. If you are on the fence about homeschooling and just can’t decide whether you are up to the challenge, take a minute to read the following encouragements and reasons to homeschool your kids!
- You get to closely monitor everything your child is learning.
- Your child can learn at their own pace.
- Your child will be able to explore so many other areas of interest in education and beyond!
- They will be better prepared for life in every area.
- Most importantly, you will be able to show them how every area of school and life can glorify and point to God!
The school system of today is not what it once was. Children, even in private schools, are not receiving the education that they need in order to succeed and stand strong in today’s world. They need the powerful encouragement that a parent’s love can provide, as well as the reinforcement and reminder of Biblical truth all day long! The decision to home school your child can change their life for the better on every level and instill a deep love of learning in them that will last forever. This is the way that God created us to live, and the blessings that will come are worth it all!

I heard you talk wth Dennis Prager on his show and found your website. I’m a mom of 3 (4, 8, 13) and deciding to homeschool my kids. Im beyond excited, thrilled and scared to start this adventure in learning with them and to find their love for learning while watching them grow. Do you have any reccomendations on websites or a curriculum that works well with your kids? I’ve read a lot on The good and the Beautiful and love their approach to teaching. But if you have any reccomendations I will gladly love to look into it. Thank you so much

Hi Katie, Congratulations on the homeschool decision! There are so many curricula for homeschool, it can be overwhelming. Tina uses Abeka for her kids and I know she would recommend that one.

Hi, Katie! When it comes to curriculum a lot of success has to do with your child and how they learn best! I would do some research on youtube from parents reviewing different curriculums and compare them to your children’s learning style! Another good one to check out is Abeka and look into Alpha and Omega who has a few different options available!
