77 Fun, Serious, Obscure, and Obvious Reasons to Homeschool

Davis Carman|September 25, 2017

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. — Deuteronomy 6:6-7

I have a workshop titled “Give Me One Good Reason to Homeschool.” In that presentation, I start with a fun and light-hearted top-ten list to break the ice. Then I transition to a more serious set of reasons. I typically change the fun and entertaining list at the beginning depending on what is trending or what I think will connect with the local audience. Part of the problem is that my “fun” list is simply too long. So I am forced to narrow it down to ten, and get on with the more “important” side of the message. Of course, some of the light-hearted reasons at the beginning are actually fairly solid, convincing, and thought-provoking in their own right. So the dilemma is this: which reasons should I include in the list?

Then it hit me. I decided to write this article and simply list them all. If you need one good reason to homeschool, then surely you can find it here. I won’t take the time to explain each one since I think you are smart enough to figure that out on your own. So let’s get right to it. Here is my list of 77 fun, serious, obscure, and obvious reasons why homeschooling is awesome.

And a personal favorite reason to homeschool:

Walking by faith and enjoying the homeschooling adventure of a lifetime!
