Why home-educate?

Why not?

We home-educate because we can.  It is our legal right.

We home-educate because we want our children to learn in a stress-free environment, where there is no pressure to learn a given subject matter within a given time-frame.  Children under stress do not learn; they perform at best, and at worst, they exhibit behaviour not at all conducive to the whole process of learning.  We want to our children to enjoy learning and not be pressured to learn what is demanded of them just so that some boxes can be ticked and targets met.

We home-educate because we want our children to have the freedom to be exposed to rich and diverse reading material, and with the approach that we are taking, the universe is the limit.  Check out our resources page above, where I have listed most of the material we are using as well as websites that we have used and still use.

Most of all, we home-educate because we would like to fulfill the Lord’s word in Proverbs 22:6.  We would like to be faithful to the Lord in training up our children in such a way that they would be “useful to the Master, prepared unto every good work” (2 Timothy 2:21) and never veer from the path of life that He has set them on.
