Homeschooling – Why are YOU not doing it?
Posted by Viola Woolcott
If you are not homeschooling already, have you ever thought about it or even considered it? Maybe you should be seriously thinking about who’s really ‘bringing up’ your kids.
I have raised 5 children myself and NO, unfortunately I did not homeschool. I didn’t even know it was ‘allowed’ or even at all possible. Raising 5 kids, going to work, running a household, cleaning, shopping…and yes, I even used to bake my own bread every day for a family of SEVEN. But I didn’t homeschool and I could have done it myself and to be honest, if I had the choice again, it be homeschooling for my kids, that’s for sure. NO DOUBT!
You tell me, what is the reason having kids if they are brought up by a teacher, a person you don’t even know. You know nothing about. You never heard of. You never even seen before???
Not that I’m religious, FAR FROM IT!!! – BUT even the Bible states that parents are to teach their children at all times (Deut. 6:7).
My daughter Ina will homeschool my grandaughter Aiyana. Aiyana is almost 3 years of age and learning is their way of life and not something that occurs at certain times or maybe in a certain place.

Did you know that John Stuart Mill, Patrick Moore, William Blake, Yehudi Menuhin, Bertrand Russell and even Her Majesty the Queen have been homeschooled? Well, what’s good enough for Her Majesty is certainly good enough for our children.
