Having a rant today
In the past year my children have grown and matured and changed for the better in ways I previously never would have imagined. They are better for it. Unfortunately there are those who are still only focusing on the fact that we homeschool and that it is weird. They don't do their research and still stick to their biased, uneducated notions of what it means to homeschool. It breaks my heart that they refuse to see the good it has done in our family.
I admit not everyone will be succesfull in homeschooling...at first. It takes dedication, perserverance, patience, and above all love. It is not easy but it is so worth it. As a matter of fact I was not on board with homeschooling for 2 years. It took me that long to listen to the Lord and follow his lead. I thought I would never have the patience I needed nor the dedication. I loved my kids but man they drove me nuts most of the time. I was wrong! Oh don't kid yourselves my kids are far from perfect angels but now they know how to make good choices and what to expect from life. They are no longer slipping through the cracks.
As for the naysayers, I will educate my children as I see fit. If they take offense they can keep it to them selves. If they don't then I have no reason to associate with them and my family will cease in doing so. I am finally understanding what it means to be a persecuted Christian for standing up for my beliefs.
