Why We Homeschool

It is a common misconception that most parents homeschool due to bullies, school shootings, or bad teaching content. While these things are important, there is a higher purpose for choosing to home education your children. Even if all those things were corrected, there are stronger reasons to stay committed to the homeschool model. So why do you homeschool? This book looks at the meaning and significance of a true Christian education.

Christian Homeschooling
Unschoolers and a "Christian World View"
Do Christian "natural learners" ("unschoolers") have a world view the same as other Christians? Some of them will, but not all.
How Can You Begin Homeschooling? Start!
"I am not trained. I am not smart enough. I will ruin my children!" These are often the first thoughts of parents considering homeschooling. This short discussion of a simple Christian approach to the beginning of your homeschool journey offers encouragement and information to make it easy to just start homeschooling.
The Redundancy of Christian Education
The term Christian education is redundant. In a very real and substantial sense it is repetitious to call education Christian. Education, simply stated, is nothing more than learning about God's creation and His providence.
Can a Christian Be an Unschooler?
Unschooling is an educational approach, an attitude towards learning. It refers to the ways in which we use books, materials, and experiences to learn and grow. The type of underlying structure you have inside yourself, your goals, value system, discipline, whether you watch TV or call parents by their first names, whether you use a patriarchal, democratic, or any other type of family structure, are not unschooling issues; they are parenting issues. Whether unschoolers or not, every parent must deal with these issues. Homeschoolers can agree on matters of how children learn and can even share a similar homeschooling style without agreeing on all of those personal issues; Christians can be unschoolers.
