As a family which is new to Homeschooling we are very thankful to all of the homeschoolers who have offered their help, their ideas, and most of all their support. We, of course I am sure like many others, have been met with disbelief and more. There are those who try to make us feel guilty and make us feel that we really do not know what is best for our children.
We have learned, through the help of others to ignore these comments and criticism.We all know that our work is not done. It is important that we keep up with what we are doing and help get the word out to as many people as we can. We are very lucky to have ways to communicate that people before us never had, and we should use them as much as we can.
Maybe if enough parents understand that they have the right to direct their children's education, we will no longer be the smaller group but we will in fact be the larger group. As the educators tell us, knowledge is power then we should be strong and show our strength, our knowledge and our reasons why we believe homeschooling is the best choice. The most important thing is our children and we must stand up for them. All of us should be willing to spread the word in as many ways as possible.
