I homeschool my three grandchildren that my Dh and I raise. We do this mostly because the schools aren't teaching them anything. Also, because of what they learn at school that we don't want them to learn, from other kids, general society,etc. Interested to hear what others think.Answer Question

If it's all about parental involvement, I'll do it myself. The local school here was good, but getting worse. My friends spend SO much time helping their kids with homework and supplementing what the school doesn't cover, it's pathetic!
It takes me less time to homeschool, my kids are thriving, and I get a lot more freedom and flexibility.

It seems the main purpose of public schools today is just to indoctrinate children with worldly views on all the social issues instead of educating them academically. That's why my husband and I chose to home school our children. Not only because the public schools are so anti-God, but because the quality of education there is, in our opinion, very lacking. My children were given to me to raise and I'm not gonna give that blessing to anyone else. We started homeschooling our first daughter, who is now almost 24, back when it was virtually unheard of and very misunderstood. We love the bond we created and still share, with her and our 18 yr. old son. And now with a 2 & 3yr old, we're blessed to get to do it again! It's not easy and many days you ask yourself what in the world you were thinking! But, when we look at the quality people they have become, we know it was the right decision.
