I think we also need a forum for us parents who have found that the public or parochial school is the way for our family:)
Myth: parents who send their children to public/Catholic school don’t want to spend time with their kids:
Fact: I love spending time with my kids but after praying about our decision with each of our children, God has lead us to a wonderful Catholic school that lets us be as involved as we want and each day we personally can see that we followed the plan God chose for us.
Myth: Parents who send their children to public/Catholic school think their way is the only way…
Fact: Far from it… this was a something that we prayed very hard over and waited on the Lord for his answer… there is no doubt in my mind that this is what God wants for my family… but I firmly believe that God has a plan for each individual family and I think it is so wonderful when parents home school or not listen to that plan.
Myth: Parents who send their children to public/Catholic school are passing judgement on homeschooling parents:
Fact: As far as for me and my family… nothing could be farther from the truth, in fact I have several very close friends who home school and I know that the decision was just as hard for them as mine was for me and I think that is what brings us together… we all share this amazing love for our kids and wanting the best for our family and knowing our kids enough that we know what they need at this moment in their lives and my kids have very close friends who are home schooled and we agree all kids face the same issues weather home schooled or not… in the end… they are kids and what is so great they can offer support and advice to each other and that is so neat!
