IHM Conference - A Homeschooler Speaks
This young homeschooler, just 6 years old and recent 1st grade grad, made some strong points in promoting homeschooling at the National Conference.
My notes from her "talk," caught live.
Homeschooling is hard
Turn phones off
Parents would miss their kids if they were gone all day
Practice patience and obedience
Brothers can be very hard
long school days are made longer by homework
Homeschooling has quicker days
THERE ARE NO SEATBELTS ON SCHOOL BUSES
You can sleep later in homeschool, be less grumpy
But you can't just play and walk away
Seems like homeschooling may assist in self-confidence and the ability to construct an argument with supporting points?!
All in all, an excellent analysis on the joys inherent in homeschooling.
