My wife and I decided to homeschool our child, and it proved to be a great call.
- There are many reasons why we chose to go this route, you know.
For one, increasing incidence with school shootings is a major concern. I know the statistical odds are low of it happening to us, but we don’t ever want to have to deal with a situation like that. We also don’t want to deal with bullying and we believe that we have a lot to offer when it comes to educating our daughter! We are Christians after all, and we have incorporated many scripture teachings into the curriculum. Also when our child was attending regular school, a common complaint was that the temperature control settings were never very good at the school! I have spoken with the principal at that school about the setbacks with the HVAC system, which he said was old and couldn’t be kept up with any longer. I don’t know what is going on with their budget! At least at our home, we are able to keep up with our HVAC system maintenance. We always have the ideal temperature control settings, so we know that everybody in our home will always be perfectly comfortable! So far, we have been working with our child with homeschooling. It has been going great! The only real concern for us was our child not getting enough social interaction with other kids their age. We’ve since signed our child up for martial arts and dance classes, so there will be plenty of social interaction in those places.
