I am so excited to announce the launch of a brand new series! I have been homeschooling “officially” since 2010 and through the years I have heard many, many, reasons as to why people can’t homeschool. Some reasons are valid, some are real concerns, and others are just excuses. There are two legitimate reasons not to homeschool, and I would never ever pressure a parent to attempt to overcome these hurdles.
If a spouse is against homeschooling, it should not be attempted. Period. Both parents must be on board in order for homeschooling to work.
Another reason is quite frankly when a parent doesn’t want to do it. Homeschooling must be desired, and one must feel convicted or led to homeschool in order for it to work. If you really, truly don’t want to homeschool, guess what? That is OKAY! I don’t think any less of you, and hopefully other homeschooling parents don’t either. Please don’t feel the like you have to validate your reasons for not homeschooling.
Now, some people really, truly don’t think they can overcome certain hurdles in order to home educate their children. These parents are who this series is for!
Through the next 6 weeks, I plan on looking at different reasons why people think they can’t homeschool. We are going to investigate those reasons and show ways that parents can overcome these hurdles.
Here are the topics that we will be investigating:
October 20th: I Can’t Homeschool Because My Child Has Special Needs, Guest Post by Katie Sullivan at My Sweet Homeschool.
October 27th: I Can’t Homeschool Because I Don’t Have the Patience
November: 5th: I Can’t Homeschool Because I Work Outside the Home, Guest Post by Maritza Antúnez at Homeschool Epiphany.
November 10th: I Can’t Homeschool Because I am Not Organized Enough
November 19th: I Can’t Homeschool Because I Want My Kids to Be Socialized
November 24th: I Can’t Homeschool Because?
In the post on November 24th, I plan on looking into reasons from you my readers! If you have heard reasons why people can’t homeschool and aren’t sure how to answer them, please send those questions my way. Have a legitimate concern that you’re not sure how to address or overcome, yet you feel led to homeschool? Send it to me! I will do my best to answer all questions and concerns submitted by November 17th in the last post of this series.
So, make sure to come back next week as we kick off our new series, I Can’t Homeschool Because…!
