We’ve all chosen to homeschool for a variety of reasons and many of us have discovered that every child is a bundle of different needs, learning styles, and undiscovered talents. Nurturing the creativity of our children fills the journey with diverse and amazing discoveries.
Homeschooling Nurtures Creativity
Henry presents Another reason to homeschool – Because teachers don’t like creative students posted at Why Homeschool saying, “One great benefit of homeschooling is our children can maintain their creative spirit.”
Liz presents Urban Homeschooling: A time for activism? posted at Homeschooling In Buffalo saying, “I advocate for homeschooling as a solution to problems stemming from the competing interests in conventional schooling.”
Chris presents Socializing Your Home School and Public School Child posted at Home School vs. Public School saying, “When we find what inspires our children we are able to guide them to achieve their goals and learn about many different subjects. See what lights up their eyes with joy and the job of teaching becomes much easier!”
Homeschooling Creates family bonds
Kelly presents Why Homeschool? Retaining Sibling Relationships posted at The Homeschool Co-op saying, “Another installment in our “Why Homeschool?” series, this one looks at sustaining and deepening sibling relationships.”

Mindy presents Frugal Curriculum Choices Using 4-H posted at Denschool saying, “One homeschool mother shares the gold mine of information, curriculum and resources available through the 4-H program. It is more extensive than you might have thought and extremely affordable.”
