The article that this quote is from is not at all about homeschooling. However, the author articulated very well one of the reasons many families home educate their children.
You take your role in your child’s life more seriously than probably anyone else ever will. You have spent countless hours modeling empathy and kindness, teaching right from wrong, helping your child learn how to navigate through an increasingly complicated world and spending time to understand who your child is and where he/she is coming from. You do this in order to help guide your child down the path to who he/she will become. So I ask you, taking all of this into consideration, how willing would you be to allow some other parent to take over this role for you –someone who claimed to know “better” than you about what was right for your child?
