Why I Homeschooled as a Single Mother

by Paula
(Orlando, Florida)

I was homeschooling for 3 years when my husband left our family. I put my children in school and saw immediate changes in their character, the way they treated each other, etc. Granted, some of this was from their father leaving I'm sure, but I prayed for 2 years asking God to provide a way for me to have my children back to homeschool and make a living. He granted that request, I continued to homeschool as a single mother for the next 11 years.

Homeschooling was a catalyst for bringing our family back together and helping each of us adjust and grow closer to one another. It was a journey that I would do over.

Now I have the opportunity to help other mothers homeschool successfully, either married or not married.

The Watson Family

by Patsy Watson
(Charlotte NC)

We have a 5 year old son and made the decision to homeschool. We want him to be able to think for himself and make decisions along with being able to experience life vs sitting in a classroom being instructed what to do everyday.

Even though homeschooling is just beginning for our family it is becoming a blessing in our daily routine for not only our son but for us as parents getting to experience this journey side by side.

Preservation of Innocence

by Glory Fox

Living in an oversexualized culture, especially in Southern California, it would be naive to think I could shelter my kids forever from certain negative social realities all around us. However, with homeschool I am able to delay the exposure to some ideas until they are ready to process it. And then the bulk of the processing is with me, their mom. I do not hide truth from them, and try to be extremely candid in answering their questions. They can get accurate information as they form their world view. And without daily contact with other influences out of my control, I have been able to keep them innocent longer.
