The U.S. educational system is in jeopardy. A new e-book titled “Homeschooling: Fighting for My Children’s Future,” authored by PJ Media.com’s in-house writers, will help you assess the threats. As a parent, you have multiple options for fighting on behalf of your children. Don’t miss out on this valuable resource, and determine whether homeschooling is right for your family.
On the flipside, if you’ve ever wondered whether you have what it takes to homeschool, reading a blog post from veteran blogger Jen Hatmaker titled “Worst End of School Year Mom Ever” ought to at least convince you that sending your kids to school is no walk in the park, either.
Hatmaker describes an exhausting situation for parents. “The emails coming in for All Of The Things – class gift, end of year letters, luncheon signup, party supplies, awards ceremonies, pictures for the slide shows, final projects – are like a tsunami of doom. They are endless,” she writes in exasperation. “I mean, they will never ever end. There is no end of it. I will never finish and turn it all in and get it to the (correct) Room Mom and get it all emailed and I am pretty sure the final week of school will never be over and this is the end for me.”
Or maybe you are on that hamster wheel, and as you look toward another exhausting school year this fall, you wonder if your family will survive.
Looking back on our years of homeschooling – 14 consecutive in all – the most common thing I heard from people who found out we were homeschooling was “I could never do that; I’m not _______ enough.” The blank was usually something like “consistent,” “disciplined” or “patient.” I understand completely, because before we began our homeschooling journey, I was the mom who made comments like that to other parents.
