I just finished reading another WEE Book; Are Parents Really Necessary? A Guide to Preschool Education. I was so excited when I found this WEE Book in The Old Schoolhouse store. It was as if it were written for me!
Some of you that know me personally know that homeschooling has always been a longtime standing interest of mine. I have read about it (long before I had children), researched it extensively, and prayed about it daily. Is homeschooling indeed the right choice for my family?
This little WEE book is packed and I do mean “packed” with research, statistics, and valuable information on the importance of parents in a child’s life! Especially when related to his or her education. Having one child that is of preschool age and another that will soon be trailing quickly behind I know first hand how quickly these years fly by. As any parent wants for his or her child a good education is not asking for much. That being said does the NEA (National Education Association) really have our children’s best interest at heart? Or are there underlying motives (i.e. financial gain?) Why do we send our children to school when they are barely out of diapers? Are our children indeed benefiting from this push for earlier education and longer days (i.e. full day kindergartens)? Explore these and many other “aha moments” while reading Are Parents Really Necessary? A Guide to Preschool Education.
So if you are like me and still not 100 percent certain that homeschooling is for you your families, preschool can be a great time to give it a “try”! “WEE” invite you to join us on our journey.
