And today my web surfing brought me to http://www.thetravelingpraters.com/ a Christian, homeschooling family. They once full-timed in their RV and it got me thinking about all the RV families we've crossed paths with while on the road. A lot of these wonderful families just don't get the support they deserve. I am a huge supporter of homeschooling. In today's culture we all seem to have very strong opinions on what "WE THINK" is right and kind of forget about "WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE CHILD".
Pros for homeschooling
-Closer Family Relationships
-Stability During Difficult Times
Cons for homeschooling
-Being with Your Kids 24/7
-Limited Team Sports
-Living Outside the Norm
But I feel that the cons could be dealt with easy and have been dealt with almost 2 million families that home school now. Homeschooling has really grown in the last couple of years from 7% to 14%...
As a RV full-timer when ever I come across a family of RV homeschooling I open my arms so wide and help them in what ever form I can - friendships is a very powerful tool.
I posted this post because there are new RV folks out there that are perhaps thinking about taking on this life style in a whole new direction and I want to be able to help. A memory with a child seem to be far and few with so many parents having to work their careers and some choose these careers instead of parenthood - sad but there it is.
And RV folks are the best kind of people - always ready to lend a hand, make friends with out judgement and well we'd like to think we are part of this wonderful community.
And so the following sites are RV friendly for those who are thinking of RV homeschooling...
