It was educational for us, and values. The kids she came in contact with in public school influenced her in all the wrong ways. You can't expect to surround a child with negative influences and none rub off. Her attitude was getting bad, and the educational side was horrid.

Not just religion, but it was a factor in the equation. Plus I wanted a better education for my child. Better socialization, to be able to go in depth into a subject and learn the hows and whys. Not just the facts for a test. I wanted her to learn not just memorize and forget.

Not my religon persay but the views of my church kind of opened our eyes to alot of things that we didnt really think of in the past. Mostly it is education and morals that have us deciding to home school

 We are secular homeschoolers homeschooling due to bullying and social problems DD was having in K. & 1st grade.

 When I first decided I would have to say no, it wasn't religous NOR was it educational. I just loved them so very much and missed them terribly. I also hated the bullying and crap at the schools.  The very week I learned of home education (this was back in '94) I pulled them out and kept them home with me!

No. Although I do think I will add a religous class in a year or two. We do not agree with a lot of what is going on in the public schools here or how the superintendets office does things.

When I pulled my DS it was educational only. I continue because of education, morals, values, and faith.
