From The Old Schoolhouse’s Homeschool Minute e-newsletter
Todd Wilson, Familyman Ministries
You want to quit homeschooling? Go ahead and QUIT!!!!
But before you sell the books on eBay and stick your kids out at the bus stop, let me tell you a story. Actually, it’s not one story, but several stories combined that I’ve heard from lots of parents. It goes something like this:
“I homeschooled our kids for several years, but it was so hard. The kids seemed like they weren’t getting it, and I didn’t enjoy homeschooling anymore. I looked around at everyone else’s children who were in school and they looked like they were learning so much and having the time of their lives. So I put them in school.” Then they pause and purse their lips together and add, “I thought we had problems before, but they were nothing compared to the issues we’re facing now; it was like throwing gas on a fire.”
So, go ahead and quit, but before you do, you might re-read the above paragraph. Those aren’t my words. They are the words of moms and dads who did quit, and who gave up because it was so hard.
“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time WE WILL reap if we do not grow weary …” (and stop). Galatians 6:9 (NASB)
