We had concerns about in the public schools in the U.S., about negative peer influences, and about the tremendous amount of time our kids would spend away from home each day, starting at very young ages. In other words, we didn't want to "farm out" our responsibility to train and educate our children.
In our country, homeschooling is not that popular. That is why the support and advice from the Sonlight Connections Community is a huge blessing to us.
Everything is completely planned for me! As a busy mom and first time homeschooler, the idea of curating curriculum felt very overwhelming. I LOVED that the hard work was done for me, and then I could just tailor it to our family.
I was a public school teacher for 11 years. I have a masters in education and went to public schools, so I never thought I would homeschool. When my husband was starting his business, it was a very busy time for our family. We realized that if we enrolled our girls in a school, we maybe wouldn’t see him for 8 months a year, and this was not an option for us.
