About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

5 Myths about homeschooling

Sorry I haven't been around lately.  I hope to begin writing more.  Life is sometimes a whirlwind.  I came across an excellent article about homeschooling myths.

  1. I was discussing this topic a bit with my husband recently when I realized that some homeschooling parents (including myself, a former homeschooling parent), embrace and perpetuate these myths as a survival mechanism. I believe I did this, even when I was very stressed out and realizing there were problems, in order to hang on and not give up no matter what. I've also noticed some articles put out every year in the Spring, which say, if you are thinking about quitting homeschooling, don't, and here are the reasons why. Well, maybe if they want to quit, they really should! I truly understand why many people want to avoid the public schools and many cannot afford private school. But when someone is truly struggling, articles like those don't help the situation. I think if homeschoolers were more honest with each other, they could help each other more and find real solutions for their problems instead of staying in denial. And churches need to step up. For example, the Catholic bishops and Catholic laity need to make authentic and affordable Catholic schools available, especially to larger families and financially struggling families.

    1. Compared to other private schools, Catholic schools are more affordable or cost less than their counter parts. Party of the problem is that Catholics are stingy at the collection plate. They don't tithe as they should. The giving from older generations who've raised they're children would be helpful to large families in need of tuition assistance. Private Catholic school is not cheap but it's better than most other private schools. JMHO
      Thanks!
