Even before my child was born, God has already placed in my heart the desire to homeschool Dindin. Although met with much criticism, it seems that the desire is getting stronger as the days pass.
My plan to homeschool Dindin transcends far beyond just mere financial savings. My intention really is to disciple my child and ingrain biblical Christian principles to her and expose her to different learning experiences. Although I graduated from a public school for my elementary and high school education and a private institutin for my college degree, most of what I apply in my life today were learned not from school but from varied life experiences.
And these are what I aim to teach Dindin as well.
Dindin is showing signs of giftedness, and I would like to be able to hone her talents and skills through special trainings. I don’t want her to be limited to the school environment where she has to compete for honors. I am an honor student and honestly, I don’t value those medals and accolades anymore.
I want Dindin to learn how to appreciate the grass and the flowers, to learn housework like they were play as well as essential learnings, and to be able to bake cookies and eat them warm with cold milk, aside from of course, teaching her God’s word, how to pray, and how to apply these biblical principles to her daily life.
I already have a plan on how to go about it. They say it would entail a lot of commitment but I think I am ready. After all, I am already a stay at home mom. And I really think, that with much prayer, this would really work for us.
