    Default Important and Famous People that were Homeschooled

    Good morning to all!

    Thought you might want to visit TJED Mothers to view an article about important and famous people that were homeschooled. That's always an interesting list for me! Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Deni,

    You are very welcome! Did you somehow incorporate this into a lesson? I am just curious as to how helpful it was to you. I find it interesting to use a list like this when people throw up a defense about homeschooled children. Most people (outside of homeschoolers) don't realize that a lot of famous and intelligent people were homeschooled!

    Have a blessed holiday season!
    Blessings,

    Rhonda.....I didn't use it in a lesson.....exactly.....I wrote down a list of several names that I thought people would recognize and then memorized it to use the next time I get attacked for home schooling....I also sent the whole list to my MOTHER!! *L*

    You do realize that a lot of those "homeschooled" people were educated "at home" during a time when many people who were geographically distant from "school" or belonged to a class of people who generally had private tutors for their children. That doesn't invalidate the fact that they were educated outside of the institutional "school" setting.........it may even indicate that the practice of homeschooling that predated the development of public schools was a much better system.

    Hi Deni,

    You are absolutely correct! As parents, we have an innate ability to teach our children. Not just through the toddler years, but throughout life. That God-given ability and responsibility far out-weighs anything that could ever have been "created" in the institutional setting for educating our children. Furthermore, as parents, we know and love our children like no one else can!

    Thanks for responding! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
    Blessings,
    Rhonda
