Psychologist and professor of child development David Elkind discovered in his 2001 study "Much Too Early" that the capacity to manipulate symbols mentally is developed around age 5 or 6. This makes it possible for children to attain a level of achievement in math or reading, for instance, that is not possible for preschool children. Furthermore, a report by the Southwest Policy Institute says, "Contrary to common belief, early institutional schooling can harm children emotionally, intellectually and socially." J. Michael Smith, President HSLDA

It is obvious that there is a problem with the care that America's children are receiving. When a son or daughter sees Ms. Jones at day care or Elmo on TV more than their mom or dad, serious implications result for the health of the children and of the family. Rachel McHaffey

I am now homeschooling my 4-1/2 year old.   I did hours upon hours reviewing homeschooling websites, reading homeschooling books, the Bible and praying.  Everything showed me that homeschooling from a Christian worldview is God ordained. I have two older daughters 21 and 20 who went to private and public schools.  We lived and breathed our faith every day.  When high school junior and senior year hit, my daughters no longer wanted to go to church, and now do not even want to discuss God. It breaks my heart, I have learned a lot, I take responsibility, I was never taught these things, in church or out.  I would love to help others know God's word on homeschooling, and the problem with public schools. Thank you for the opportunity to become a Chapter Leader.   Nancy T., Pensacola, Florida










If your children have been or are in daycare or preschool, we hope the following information will help you make the decision to bring them home.  Even though research has concluded that daycare and preschool can be harmful to social, emotional and brain development, a loving home based Godly education can and will change everything.  As one mom confirmed:

"Once I started homeschooling I knew this was my purpose.  I LOVE IT!  I went from being against homeschooling to being a huge advocate! I have seen such positive changes in my kindergartener since she came home.  It took 3 months to flush out what 3 weeks of public school had done to her!"
