What are your homeschooling reasons? Many people ask me why I home school. I'm not always sure how to answer. What are other people's reasons for homeschooling?

There are varied reasons why parents choose to educate their children at home. In my experience, although the reasons to begin to home school may be varied for each family (poor school experience, bullies, distance, travel), the reasons why families continue to homeschool will often centre around being obedient to God’s call for each individual family. I believe that God uses all sorts of circumstances to cause families to homeschool, and then often through prayer, dependence, reading and research, He leads them to the conviction that this is right for their family.
Some initial reasons why parents choose to homeschool may remain just as valid five or ten years down the track as the day they decided:
* Keep family unity
* Guard against adverse influences
* Be in charge of what is being studied
* Pursue Family Goals
* Guide your child’s character
* Give an education which is tailored to each child
