We are just starting with homeschooling our youngest two and I am still battling with DS's father (my ex-husband) about being able to homeschool DS as well. In my mind though- I want our children to be able to communicate effectively (verbally and in writing), to be able to thoroughly research any subject and to use that research to come to their own conclusions, and to have a good grasp on historical and scientific facts with as little bias involved as possible so that they can form their own opinions from factual information. I do want to impart lessons from our faith and I do want them to learn morality and character development as well. As to gearing towards any specific careers- that will be determined by their interests as they grow and develop.

Those are becoming more and more important in life.
