My kids are loved,
guided, and prepared.
the ridiculously critical job of making and
carrying out foundational decisions for
the mental, spiritual, and physical health
and development of our legacy.
I don’t want my kids to learn about sex,
drugs, alcohol, relationships and life’s
other sensitive lessons from their peers
or from a teacher who may not share my
values or have my kids’ best interests at
heart. My wife and I will decide how and
when our kids learn things, and learn
them they will.
Our kids socialize in proper ways,
avoiding the bullying, intimidation,
cliques, inappropriate relationships, and
personal drama that are rampant in pub-
lic school. My kids socialize with peers
who typically share their values but from
different perspectives. In my experience,
when homeschooled kids get together
they tend to debate and discuss from in-
formed positions, which creates diversity
of thinking, reinforces healthy attitudes,
and cultivates deeper relationships.
