Homeschooling is not a decision to be taken lightly for any parent. And for the Christian parent, we should be fully aware of what the Bible has to say about educating our children before making any decision. Is there a Biblical basis for homeschooling?
Crisis Schooling at home
Teaching kids at home has been in the news more than ever these past few months as parents everywhere try to figure out what to do about their child’s education in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. But trying to do at home, what just a month ago your kids were doing in a classroom, has proven more stressful than most parents even imagined.
And yet, as fall approaches and we still have no answers as to how public school will look for the foreseeable future, many parents are having to take a long hard look at keeping their kids home long-term.
Maybe you never thought you’d be responsible for teaching your own kids the 3 R’s and more, but you now find yourself moving in that direction out of sheer necessity.
In this episode of the One Faithful Mom podcast, I am giving what I believe to be a solid Biblical basis for homeschooling.
Is Homeschooling a biblical mandate?
I personally do not believe you can support a Biblical mandate for home education.
What you can do though, is present a case for why it might be your family’s best choice for your children.
And that’s what today’s episode is all about: giving you some principles from Scripture to consider as you make those decisions for your own family.
