Why I Homeschool

Welcome to my weekly meme, sponsored by Miss Moe. Each Wednesday I get to share some of the reasons either why I chose to homeschool, or why I continue to choose to homeschool. If you homeschool your children and would like to join, please feel free to do so.

Why I homeschool. For me, I solely believe in the separation of church and state. I won't go into great detail as to why, because that is not the purpose of this post. While I do agree in separation of church and state, I also appreciate the fact that I can teach my children religion, or religious views in any way I see fit, in my homeschool endeavors. While I do not buy religious curriculum, I like the freedom of being able to pray, talk about religion, and all other religious or non-religious activities during our homeschool times. No one can tell me what I can or can not teach. I love it!

Great post and I wholeheartedly agree with you. I only wish my hubby would let me homeschool. Ugh!

Amen Melissa! I find it interesting that many feel a curriculum is necessary for religion to be taught in the home. I think the best curriculum is living our beliefs. Praying, talking about gospel principals, and showing what they mean by example go on through out our homeschool day.

It sounds like homeschooling requires major dedication. Fortunately, our public schools are really good. Otherwise I would definitely consider homeschooling.

i really respect your thoughts Melissa, as a teacher from Philippines, sometimes, I feel like praying but I stop myself since when I was new here, I was told I should not because of the separation of church and state.
