I have to admit that I use to think all homeschool families were crazy! I mean what types of parents would actually choose to school their own children? It’s so funny how my life has turned out.
Before I became a parent, I never thought I would be stay at home mom and definitely not a homeschool teacher. I was very judgmental and it helps me to be gracious to others when I encounter those who still hold to stereotypical beliefs about homeschool.
Homeschooling families come in all shapes and sizes. Some have one child and some ten. Some live in rural areas and others in cities like Manhattan, NY. There are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, and everyone in between homeschool families. With over a million homeschool children in our nation, there is just no way to put everyone into the same box. We are all different and we homeschool for different reasons.
