Give home schooling a chace if you don't like the other choices.

Dear readers it is not just because bullying is on the rise in schools that parents are looking for alternatives to sending their children to school.Parents in this country are fed up to the back teeth with government interfering and messing with our childrens education.One way to stop government from interfering and messing with our childrens education is to teach them at home.That way children can learn in the safe enviroment of their own home at their own pace in their own time.With the help of the internet home schooling is now a lot easier than what it use to be.And with home schooling your children are free from government rules and regulations and interference.A childs first education is by the parents in the home so why not carry on with it through the childs school life iam sure you will see a big difference in your childs attitude towards learning and education as a whole straight away.

Home schooling will also eliminate that pesky problem of kids being taught the FACT of evolution.Now parents can teach their children fantasies and call them reality,which I call child abuse.

One of the top 10 signs you're a "believer":

Modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you, but some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues"(gibberish) is all the evidence you need to "prove" what you believe is true.

To iamwhoiam hello i teach my children history geology and astronomy as science subjects my eldest son is very interested in botany.All three of my children are interested in history and prehistory and prehistoric life.I have educated them about the Dinosaurs and all four of us have built up a large fossil collection over the years.We visit cathedrals on days out and i do pray and i do sometimes attend church.But religion plays no part in our lives as such i have taught my children about evolution and my children well my eldest son knows that the world is 4.5 billion years old.Iamwhoiam it is not easy explaining a billion years to a child let alone four and a half billion.Still one must endevour.

I commend any parent that teaches their children appropriately.Unfortunately,to o many parents who home-school their children do so because they don't want their kids being taught evolution.Sometimes they don't even want their children associating with kids who don't share their belief in myths.While not all parents who home-school are like this, a great many of them are.Besides the religious kooks,there are also parents who home-school to cover up abuse.The religious kooks and abusers are the the main ones who prefer home schooling.The other parents, the ones that are sane and don't abuse their kids and have no religious agenda,make up a minority.

To iamwhoiam hello icannot fault your reply to me you are right on all fronts of your statement you have hit the nail on the head.Iamwho1am i believe in home schooling because iam not satisfied with the level of education children are getting in school today.Iam also fed up of government interferring and messing around with our childrens education and then there are the government cuts to schooling and education all this effects a childs learning.There are no specialists schools in Manchester anymore where you can send talented children to so one solution to this is home schooling.

Home schooling is a good idea if you know what you are doing.I got the idea of home schooling from this forum i like the idea of home schooling because i can teach my children subjects that are not taught in the classroom and i can inte-act with my children better than what any teacher can do. Iam a woman of science i have a BSc in metallurgy and a Ba in psychology and iam soon to become a doctor in astronomy so i do know what iam doing.Also another thing about home schooling is understanding your childs interests and eduational needs and build upwards from there.I would like to hear from other parents who were home schooled or are home schooling their chilren.We can learn from one another and perhaps get a progress thread going.The more of us are incontact with each other the better it will be for us and our children.We can learn a lot from each other and recommend reading material for one another.Together we can make something great by sharing our ideas and knowledge.Together we can make this idea work....lets go global and spread this idea.Parents we need each other lets help each other.
