To homeschool or not to homeschool next year is the question I’ve been thinking about for the last two months.
I never imagined myself homeschooling our son. Now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all homeschooling our children around the world. Having Daniel home and seeing how well he works and how happy he is has made me consider homeschooling him.
The world is getting darker as the church is getting brighter. I worked as a school nurse for a school year, and it broke my heart to see what went on in middle and high school. I don’t want to shield him from the world because I do want him to be able to minister and understand others especially as he grows up. However, they are very impressionable at this age so this is another reason why I’m considering it.
For those of you who have homeschooled your kids, I have a lot of questions that maybe you can answer.
Does it get harder as they get older? Daniel is going into 5th grade next year.
What curriculum do you recommend and how much is it?
Will he be accepted into a university if he gets homeschooled for the rest of his schooling?
How many hours a day do they spend time working?
What are the struggles that arise?
How often do you meet up with other kids?
Your responses in the comments are much appreciated! Thank you so much! I would love to hear how old your kiddos are too (: This is a new world to me. Our experience with virtual school during COVID-19 has been very positive, so I’m curious about true homeschooling.
If any of you are considering homeschooling your children too, I will write an updated post with answers and research as well.
