Reasons to Homeschool

As we start seeing kids go back to public school, it is helpful to remember the reasons why we homeschool. I found this list a while ago and enjoyed it!

  1. The only "gang" your kids belong to is your family

  2. The teacher-pupil ratio is great

  3. You don't need security guards or metal detectors

  4. Your kids enjoy socializing with people of all ages

  5. You don't have to run to catch the school bus

  6. You can sleep in on rainy days

  7. School prayer is encouraged

  8. You don't have to buy "back to school clothes"

  9. You don't have to develop a taste for cafeteria food

  10. You can celebrate your birthday with a school holiday

  11. Vacations can be called "extended field trips"

  12. You get to read more books than you ever realized existed

  13. The latest fads usually never make it to your house

  14. You don't have to worry about what your kids learned in school today

  15. You don't have to raise your hand to go to the bathroom

  16. You can wear pajamas to class and not be kicked out

  17. Chores may be called "Home Ec Projects"

  18. There's always time to bake cookies

  19. Learning becomes contagious

  20. Your family is right where they ought to be...home!
