Homeschool Quotes, Part 5

“Home-base education is not an experiment. It’s how people learned to function in the world for centuries. And there is no reason to think that people today can’t do the same thing. School is the experiment, not the lack of it, and I think that experiment is in trouble.—Wendy Priesnitz

“You will never look back on life and think, “I spent too much time with my kids.” —Unknown

“We’re teaching children far more than just history, geography, and science. We’re also teaching them to slow down, to look around, to dig in, and to move beyond their comfort zones –to try new tastes and to broaden their educational palates.” — Steve Lambert

“The things the kids remember about homeschooling have nothing to do with a textbook.” —Heidi St John

“When a child learns to walk and falls down 50 times, he never thinks to himself: ‘Maybe this isn’t for me.’” —Unknown

‘We cannot continue to send our children to Caesar for their education and be surprised when they come home as Romans.” —Voddie T Bauchman Jr

“You make me sit still. You make me look at my children. You give me eight precious more hours in the day to know them, to tell them ‘good job, Buddy,” to stand next to them while they do it again, to scratch  their little backs while we read. Homeschooling, you give us time. You take my time, but you give it back, pour it back into these little ones. For this gift, I will ever be grateful.” —Anonymous

“Why do people take or keep their children out of school? Mostly for three reasons: they think that raising their children is their business not the government’s; they enjoy being with their children and watching and helping them learn, and don’t want to give that up to others; they want to keep them from being hurt, mentally, physically, and spiritually.” John Holt

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and  I learn. —Xunzi

“Try to see the world through the eyes of a child. Eyes that are not yet cynical or skeptical. Eyes that marvel at everything they see. The lessons we learn from children about life are so much more important than the lessons we teach them.” —Leslie Reiki

I hope you enjoy the quotes as much as I do.
