Why do I home school? #15. Teach Them Diligently
Our family loves to attend the Teach Them Diligently home school conference! I get excited! Daniel gets excited! The big kids get excited!
Home school isn't what it use to be 20 or 30 years ago when there were only a few random families that taught their children at home and had limited options for curriculum. As of 2016, there were an estimated 2.3 million children being home schooled in the United States alone!
That's a mess of kids yall!!!!
The increase interest in bringing children home has only fueled the curriculum industry and the need to connect and encourage these families.
This conference is a fantastic support to the home school community. The speakers are those who have gone before us and give us counsel, ideas, and empower us to do life, school, parenting and marriage well. It's not just about the text books, which are numerous, but about edifying the entire family as a whole! From the youngest to the oldest in each family, there is something new to learn!
We love to attend, learn, and be challenged along with thousands of other families for three days! If the conference comes to your area, I highly recommend attending! You won't regret it!
