Homeschooling on the Homestead Collaboration

Hey Y’all, we were asked by The Texas Boys to join their collaboration on why we homeschool and why homeschooling is good / right for our family.

Check out the full homeschooling playlist here to see why The Texas Boys and other homesteaders homeschool their kids.

There are so many reasons we chose to homeschool our kids but we’ve narrowed it down to the 15 reasons below. Our reason for homeschooling our kids is pretty universal. However, most of our five methods only apply for young children.

  1. You guy are so right! My child has been homeschooled from the very beginning. Now in fourth grade he’s already doing mathematic and logic skills of middle schoolers and tackling pre algebraic equations for fun. I love the flexibility it gives. On my death bed I’ll never look back and wish I had put him in school. What little time we are given with them as children flies by and I will never regret that I didn’t pursue a career over spending that fleeting part of time with him. Kudos! I’m right there with y’all!

      That’s awesome, Emily! Glad to hear he’s thriving at home. The time with them flys by fast, so we better make the most of it.
