I know the answer is, “Of course!”  But honestly, does anyone act like they really believe it’s true?

My experience is that parents and administrators and couples and bossess are all oblivious to the power of the environment.

Here’s a quick argument for how homeschooling builds family bonds.  It is obvious, and sometimes it is out of line (refer to Jerry Springer’s guest list)

Can Homeschooling Your Children Help You Build A Stronger Family?

When homeschooling you do address these issues as well as give your children a sound education not to mention building their character too. Despite where we went to school ourselves, we are still very aware of just what a

Nonetheless, we all seem to quickly pretend that enviroment doesn’t matter.  Most of us have experienced something as simple has having a friend who ‘wasn’t good for us.’  True?  I mean, even though you liked them, didn’t they get you in trouble?

How much more for our kids?  It honestly isn’t about homeschool or private school or public school— it is about the reality that you as a parent will turn out to be a complete and total assessory to the crime if you never give guidence to your babies.

Frankly, they want it!  I must confess, our years of hard work is paying off as we see our kids become selective about the people they involve in their lives. 

This isn’t about serving the needy or ministering to the challenged…this is about intimate relationships.  The intimate relationship in your life will dictate much (it’s the way it goes).

How much more your own children? 

This is a wake up call…catch on…don’t whimp out!

Think for a moment of the most influencial people in your own life…aren’t you thankful for the quality people you got to connect with?  Why not get intentional about the whole thing now with your kids?

They will rise up and call you “blessed.”

Peace to you,
