I like to use my grandmother's way of phrasing it when she would tell people we homeschooled..."she's home educating her children." I miss my grandmother.
I know this topic won't appeal to all who visit here but I DO know there are several homeschoolers who visit and comment on a fairly regular basis. So, I'm curious - why do you homeschool? If you're new here - I'd like to hear from you as well.
The funny thing - this is always the question we get. The problem - it's a hard question to answer. There's never an easy answer. For me, in the beginning, I would tell people it all started because my son has a peanut allergy and I didn't trust anyone else with his life. I still answer that way and finish with - "since then, my reasons have grown beyond my ability to answer your question in the time it takes to checkout at Kroger."
So, if you are reading this and you're a homeschooler - take your time and leave me a comment. Why do you homeschool? It's possible your reasons might inspire another to take a leap into the unknown. If it were not for a couple of friends of mine who were already homeschooling I probably would've never thought about it on my own.
Oh - and if I can homeschool - anyone can.
