All Parents Home School

Have you been thinking about the future?

Homeschooling - Gustoff family in Des Moines 023

Have you been wondering about beginning or continuing to home school your children?

Allow me to let you in on a secret:

You have to.

Yes, whether we like it or not, we have to home school these little blessings with which God has blessed us.

How do I know? I know it simply because all parents home school their children.

Actually.

You home school yours already.

Think for a minute:

  • Who taught your darling that Mom is the best in the world? Did you take him to a state institution to learn that?
  • Who taught him to walk? Did he receive private lessons on that subject?
  • Who taught him to stay seated in the high chair and grocery cart?
  • Who toilet trained him?
  • Who succeeded in teaching him to pick up after himself?

Trust and obey: This duo is one of the most important lessons in all of life. We have taught these most important lessons. Yet, do we somehow feel we would not be good teachers of minor things?

We have taught our children nearly to master speaking the English language, one of the toughest on earth, as if they were natives, and yet, do we somehow feel that we are inadequate to teach the ABCs?

Or is it only that home school seems like too much work? Were we ready to be at ease and to pass them on to some other mother (oops—I mean, teacher)?

More tomorrow.
