I received the July/August issue of Home Education Magazine yesterday just started reading it. There is a great article by Larry and Susan Kaseman, who write the "Taking Charge" column, called "Strengthening Families Through Homeschooling." It's not available online yet, but the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library subscribes to the magazine. It's a really great article--here's the tag line from it:
By strengthening our families, we are benefiting our children, ourselves, and our society.
They outline: "why strengthening families is important,"
It is difficult to overestimate the importance of families both in the lives of individuals and in a society, any society. Families are the basic unit of every known society and its most powerful institution.
"how homeschooling strengthens families,"
Although it's obvious to homeschoolers that homeschooling strengthens families, it is helpful to consider asking why.
and "ways homeschoolers can strengthen their families,"
Throughout the modern homeschooling era, homeschoolers have been increasing the ways homeschooling strengthens families.
