We often miss the first step when we consider homeschooling. Face it, curriculum issues and “Is it legal?” questions rise to the top most often. However, there is an essential question that will have more to do with your choices than anything else. You must start by asking, “What do we want?” While this question could be applied to a number of homeschooling issues and concerns, the key is to think about your own student(s).
How do you want you student(s) to turn out? How are they going to be prepared academically, morally, or practically? Getting a clear picture of what you want will help in all your choices. Warning: Answering this question by describing what you don’t want is a misstep! Watch the video by clicking above 🙂
