I was chatting with my friend Hayley (of The Hayleys) today, and we were talking about the ways in which we make our children accountable for their school work. She said something that exactly summed up my reasons for and my feelings about homeschooling.
She said, "I don't want them to think that because they're home, it's not important. It's important, and that's why they're home."
Yup. Couldn't have said it better.
