No matter how well things are going in your family, there will be good days and bad days, says HSLDA Toddlers to Tweens Educational Consultant Vicki Bentley. A veteran homeschooling mother to 8 biological and 50 foster children, Vicki knows just how good or how bad things can get.
“I hate you and I hate homeschooling!” Vicki’s 14-year-old daughter shouted. In this video, Vicki takes an honest look back at one of her worst days of homeschooling and a hope-filled leap forward to the good fruit and strong relationships that grew out of her family’s homeschooling journey.
In fact, Vicki says the development of relationships is one of the most important fruits of homeschooling. And today her children recognize the gift of those relationships and the unique opportunities that home education provided—from professional acting to missions work to running their own company.
Vicki encourages parents “not to compare your family to another family, but to ask God to give you His vision for your family.”
