A common objection to home education is the notion that ordinary parents can't possibly be smart enough, experienced enough or know all the subjects enough to homeschool.  

Ridiculous.  And a HUGE MISUNDERSTANDING of how the process really works!  

Who among us is good at everything?  Does not being expert at every aspect of life prevent us from going from leading successful lives anway?

In this post, I debunk the notion of parents need to know absolutely everything.  I certain don't.  Yet I raised successful, college-ready kids.

History may have been MY weakest subject, but it turns out to be one of my kids' strongest.

Read how that happened...

I'll be honest with you. History isn't one of my strong points. Actually, any study requiring the piecing together of events and examining how they're

I appreciate the general sentiment, but how about loosening educational laws so kids may actually stand a chance of learning?  Only then will we need fewer dungeons.
 
"Make your educational laws strict and your criminal ones can be gentle; but if you leave youth its liberty you will have to dig dungeons for ages."



We estimate the effect of education on participation in criminal activity accounting for endogeneity of schooling. We first analyze the effect of schooling on incarceration using Census data and changes in state compulsory attendance laws over time as an instrument for schooling. Changes in these laws have a significant effect on educational achievement, and we reject tests for reverse causality. We find that schooling significantly reduces the probability of incarceration. Differences in educational attainment between black and white men explain 23% of the blackwhite gap in male incarceration rates. We corroborate our findings on incarceration using FBI data on arrests that distinguish among different types of crimes. The biggest impacts of education are associated with murder, assault, and motor vehicle theft. We also examine the effect of schooling on self-reported crime in the NLSY and find that our estimates for imprisonment and arrest are caused by changes in
criminal behavior and not educational differences in the probability of arrest or incarceration conditional on crime. Given the consistency of our estimates, we calculate the social savings from crime reduction associated with high school graduation among men. The externality is about 14-26% of the private return, suggesting that a significant part of the social return to completing high school comes in the form of externalities from crime reduction.

"Recently, I wrote about real life high schooling.  I spared no details when talking about how much work it takes and how many boo boos we parents sometimes make along the way.  I wrote that article so you’d know what high schooling really looks like from the inside.  I wrote it because I hate it when homeschoolers are handed some phony tale of hearts and rainbows by some “expert” out to sell an e-book.

Today, I’m going to tell you the part about how high schooling is really fun.  I’m going to tell you how much I have loved doing it.  And I’m going to make sure you understand what an overwhelming privilege it is to get to prepare your very own kids for life."

No matter how hard high schooling may seem at times (or how many mistakes you think you may have made) THIS is the only stuff that really counts when it's over.

You know what, friends? Some #homeschool  days are really, really hard. No use sugar-coating it...it's true.  Today, I'm GUEST POSTING at Vibrant Homeschooling, where I'm sharing a particularly tough day, and what it taught me about my kids, our homeschool -- and most importantly, myself.   #vibranthomeschooling   #hardtimes   #nevergiveup   #QSH  
Even the worst homeschool days and most difficult parenting challenges have valuable lessons to teach. Find out why.

Parents have long known the benefits of schedules, for productivity, and to maintain order in the home.  But some people just don't like being scheduled!  Do you?  

I completely understand.

In this post, I explain what I mean, and offer a ground-breaking solution for how to schedule, yet also unschedule, your time throughout the day.  It really works!  

Still need help in this area? Just let me know.
