Homeschooling & Family Relationships

Homeschooling not only provides a nurturing educational environment but it can also help strengthen family relationships.

Being taught at home by a parent or parents can reinforce confidence in the children and help affirm their value as a member of the family.

Disciplining Your Children

Discipling your children is one of the core values of Christian homeschooling.

Being able to teach your children from a Christian homeschool curriculum allows you to dive deeper into God’s word and give your child one-on-one attention.

Rooting Your Family in Christ

Rooting your family in Christ is not just the responsibility of the church. As parents, are the primary teachers to help our children grow in faith.

By electing to homeschool your children, you are not only providing them with an exceptional education, you are also planting seeds of faith and teaching them the process of transformation into people that do the work of God’s kingdom.

Maintaining Healthy Marriages

Educating your kids at home can mean less time on homework and not having to commute back and forth to school.

Homeschool families have more free time to spend together at night and on the weekends, which helps to build and maintain a healthy marriage.

Grandparents and Homeschooling

Having a grandparent that homeschools is an added blessing.

Grandparents can bring a lot of life experience and wisdom to the table when they homeschool grandchildren. Sometimes due to financial constraints or other factors, it is necessary for both parents to work.

Having a grandparent step in to take the role of teacher can be an amazing gift for the children and family.
