August is "Back to School" month for some. For homeschoolers, it could be viewed as "Back to Homeschool" month.
However you think of it, one of the most important things to remember about homeschooling is that it's not "school at home."
Homeschool parents are scrambling right now to find the "perfect" homeschool supplies, the "most educational" curriculum, and some are even seeking teachers to teach their homeschooler and to grade assignments!
Please, parents, remember WHY you are homeschooling!
The reasons are varied, and each family has their own educational goals, objectives, and philosophies. Most reasons to homeschool have to do with family values, social issues, faith, flexibility, one-on-one learning, higher academic achievement, natural learning, unschooling as a way of life, and so on.
Whatever your reasons, avoid turning your homeschool adventures into a "school at home!"
