(Rock Hill, SC)
Our initial reason to homeschool was that one of our older daughters was bullied everyday in school by teachers and peers.
Slowly we brought all of our children out of school. It wasn't until recently that I came to understand the true agenda behind public school. Our family now endeavors to live by the standard of God's Word in all aspects of our lives...even education. That is the core of learning in our home, after all (and before all).

Yes, kids can be mean. That's just part of being a kid, I guess. We've all been there, either on the giving or the receiving end, or both. There is no better place for children to learn and grow than in the loving environment of their own home. God wanted you to homeschool your children and found a way for you to hear Him! And you listened. All the best to you.
(Your original title, There's A Standard That We Embrace was perfect, but too long for me to be able to use. I thought it fitting to use the word that caused you to homeschool in the first place!)
