DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Homeschooling

If you are thinking about homeschooling your children take a moment to read this letter sent in by a DLTK viewer.  Tia is a homeschooling mom who has taken the time to share her thoughts with us in this article.


As a homeschooling mom, I am often asked the question of why I choose to teach my kids at home. There are many reasons why people choose to homeschool and they vary just as much as families vary.

I began my journey teaching my oldest son preschool skills and doing many different projects and crafts with him. As he become kindergarten age, I began exploring the homeschooling route.  I spoke to many people, read many books, attended conventions, and went back and forth on the decision many times.  I finally realized that I love being able to teach my kids.  I love being able to see that moment click in their face when they finally understand something. 

I love the flexibility it brings-being able to study flowers outside on a nice day, going on field trips with other friends, being able to spend a little extra time learning about horses because that is what my son is passionate about right now or being able to spend a little extra time learning about money skills with my daughter. 

Together we have learned, grown, and met many new friends along this road.  I now have three kids, am a single mom, and when people ask me why I homeschool, in a one sentence answer I respond, "I love watching the wonder of learning in my kids eyes and I would not trade it for anything in the world!"
