Gosh, there are so many ways, but I think the most beneficial, is the children's definition of what "family" is, to them. We are far from a "perfect" family. Their father passed away almost 3 years ago. for 15 years we have been a homeschooling family. I was a stay -at-home mom. I baked cookies every week. In fact, I baked everything in our home. I have since gone back to school to enhance my career opportunities. I work odd jobs here and there in addition to receiving my husband's Social Security benefits. My children are still home schooled, but maybe that will change next year. That all sounds like such a devastating upheaval, and it has been, but because we have the strong familial bond that has been cultivated through our home school life. My children are each other's best friends. They have friends outside of the home, of course, but these children that they have known and have spent literally, most of every day of their lives with, are themselves each other's home. They have a love in them, for each other, that surpasses who is wearing whose sweater, or whether or not he or she got the last cookie. As a matter of fact, if there is a last cookie, they usually offer it to whoever is in the room with them before they take it themselves. Homeschooling has offered my children the ability to see that no one will be at their side fastest than their siblings will be, also , it has given them the experience of being that sibling who is at the other's sides. I am so grateful that they have been able to grow those rich experiences with each other.
I love the flexibility we have with our schedules, the subjects we learn, when and where we can travel, and how we can have wonderful experiences and create great memories together.
Homeschooling enhances my home life the most by allowing my whole family to spend so much time together! Instead of us all being focused on our individual lives and only coming together sometimes, it's the opposite for my family! We share so many more experiences together and I get to be a major part of my children's everyday lives! Also, my 3 children (ages 13, 6, and 4) share very strong sibling bonds. We are truly blessed to be able to homeschool!
